    PS3 BWE - Betterway Electronics Downgrade Automator is Released

    Sponsored Links
    Today PlayStation 3 developer BWE has released a PS3 BWE (Betterway Electronics) Downgrade Automator for those interested followed by a script update and details below, as follows:

    Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

    From the ReadMe file (Pic via ps3devwiki.com/wiki/File:Automator.jpg): Instructions:

    Copy/Extract the entire package to your USB drive (Optional: Copy the DumpManager.bat wherever).

    Add the following firmwares into the 'Firmware' directory:
    • Kmeaw CFW 3.55 (MD5: 2BE5E87A22BF1E7F48E98FCABD38977B) - Rename it to Kmeaw355
    • Rogero CFW 4.30 v1.4 (MD5: 5D70EEFEF8EAAD0EA627BB861DAFB187) - Rename it to Rogero430v1.4
    • Rogero CFW 3.55 v3.7 (MD5: 8F8166B25D6BED891F292C77DE5C4B28) - Rename it to Rogero355v3.7
    • Sony OFW 3.55 (MD5: CA595AD9F3AF8F1491D9C9B6921A8C61) - Rename it to OFW355

    If this is a problem, feel free to rename it within the batch file

    Once this is done all you have to do is run the Automator.bat and select the options!

    - BwE

    Problems and Issues
    • Downgrade BluRay Playback Issue (description of NAND consoles and Factory Service Mode issues)

    Finally, from MajorPSP156: BwE has made an automator for setting up files needed for downgrading. The simple script is placed on your USB and when run (in Windows) it gives you options to load Lv2Diag.self files, FSM .PUP's, Recovery Mode .PUPs as well as the copy and management of bkpps3.bin files for clients. The script also has md5 checking and other fail-safes.

    The package itself is a 700+mb pack with everything, but that is yet to be uploaded. However, a version without the firmware files is available here: [Register or Login to view links] and can still be used.

    Update: Automation for Business/Lazy purposes (via ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Downgrading_Firmware#Automation_for_Business.2FLaz %20y_purposes):

    BwE has made an automator for setting up files needed for downgrading. This simple script is placed on your downgrading USB and when run (in Windows) it gives you options to load Lv2Diag.self files, FSM .PUP's, Recovery Mode .PUPs as well as the copy and management of bkpps3.bin files for clients.

    The script also has md5 checking and other fail-safes. This saves you the effort of copying/renaming all of the .PUP's and Lv2Diag.self's that you would be using in a typical downgrade setup.

    A version without the firmware files is available here (linked above) and can still be used providing you have the firmwares required, which is listed within the script. Condor Updater & QA Toggle is included in the .rar to aid with dehashing.
    Code:
    This script requires the following firmwares to be installed into the 'Firmware' folder and subsequently renamed:
    
    Kmeaw 3.55 -> 'Kmeaw355'
    OFW 3.55 -> 'OFW355'
    Rebug 999 Downgrader -> 'Rebug999'
    Rogero Downgrade Automator -> 'RogeroDowngrade'
    Rogero 3.55 v3.7 -> 'Rogero355v3.7'
    Rogero 4.21 v2.0 -> 'Rogero421v2.0'
    Rogero 4.30 v2.03 -> 'Rogero430v2.03'
    
    The MD5 checking this script does can be slow on some USB sticks, if this is a problem simply stop using the script.
    It is a necessary part of the script, it determines what is in use and if it is valid.
    
    It is recommended to strictly use Rogero 355 v3.7 when downgrading firmware >3.55.  Greetz to #ps3downgrade & ps3devwiki
    Finally, from the included ReadMe file: This simple script is placed on your downgrading USB and when run (in Windows) it gives you options to load Lv2Diag.self files, FSM .PUP's, Recovery Mode .PUPs as well as the copy and management of bkpps3.bin files for clients. The script also has md5 checking and other fail-safes.

    I bet it don't downgrade a Fat 40gb system on OFW 4.25 like mine that is now a 320gb since I upgraded it awhile back with a drive donated to me. My system was once on 3.55 until it accidently by mistake got up to 4.25 OFW. Now I am stuck here.

    This OBVIOUSLY don't work on 3.55+ OFW

    To do something on OFW we need to crack ECDSA signature, it'll probably never happen so the only hope is a flasher
