So here I am still trying to do the impossible. I am trying to find a way to downgrade my 4.11 FW to a 3.55 CFW. I know everyone says it can't be done. Though I haven't (in all my searches) seen anyone mention a back up and recovery method. Would it be possible to take some one's 3.55 CFW file back up and just run a system restore to it on mine? Now they say that 4.11 is unbreakable, but there has to be a way around it to leave 4.11 in the past.
What a drag. I really didn't think that it was going to be that big of a file. Bummer... And I am in Honduras, I doubt there is anyone even close to me with what I need. So as you can tell I am new to the whole jail breaking game. Is there any other methods? Or how would I go about spoofing my FW?
You won't be able to do so. Some of the files stored in a firmware is stored in your NAND/NOR chip on your PS3. The only you can overwrite that chip with 3.55 firmware is to use a device like the E3 flasher.
All PS3 downgrade equipment requires you to open the PS3 and either solder something on the mother board or in the E3 flashers case just clip it on. Just look up ProgSkeet, Infectus and E3 flasher. To get a better idea on what they all do.

I am going to have to look them up one at a time and research. I'd like to just make my own. Just need to figure out what the insides consist of. I was hoping that there would be a more USB style of doing it. Well I've been itching to take apart my new system anyways.
