i have a question regarding the PS3 firmware. So i just bought a new PS3 and it prompts me to upgrade the firmware. Since it's brand new, it will inevitably be upgraded to 3.42 (if i go to PSN). Meanwhile if i don't go to PSN i will stuck with its current firmware. How ever i want to stick with 3.41 since 3.42 version contains lots of problems.
So can any of you tell me how it can be done? And in case of i do something stupid, how can i downgrade to 3.41 firmware?
by the way, i know that we have firmware section here where ppl can download any version of firmware.
I just don't know how to upload it into my PS3.

you cant downgrade. Download the 3.41 firmware on your pc, take a usb flash drive. Make a folder called PS3. In that folder make a folder called UPDATE and place the file in there. Put the stick in your ps3. select update from external device (or someting if i rememberd the name correctly) and install the firmware.
