    [UnAnswered] PS3 system restore


    Just woundering if you have upgraded your ps3 can you use the system restore to restore to original firmware or does it just format to the installed firmware thats on there now?

    It only formats to the current Firmware... it won't 'downgrade' your PS3 Firmware to a previous version. Currently the only way to do that is having a back-up made from your own PS3 with an Infectus mod-chip installed.

    1.51 isnt too bad say the gods at paradox. dont go any higher if you wanna possible be able to hack it they say. use the resistance swap or one like it to load your rented games in the future.
