How to Turn a Kiosk into Retail PS3 Without Downgrade via Acid CFW
I have been experementing with the new alejandro program which allows us to write files into the dev_flash so i thought what if i can turn my 3.41 kiosk unit into retail without actually downgrading. So i went off and copied over the vsh from acidcfw and pasted it into the the original vsh unit viola i had an 3.41acidcfw. Just to be on the safe side i flashed the original 3.41 to check if it had actually worked and guess what it worked!
