[Answered] PS3 upgrade to downgrade help?
Hi there, i still haven't own a PS3 yet , but soon ! I went to my nearby retail game shop , they selling 3.15 firmware of PS3 slim.
So my question is. IF i got it. I'm on 3.15 firmware , can i just download official firmware of 3.41 and upgrade it so i can play together with my PS3BREAK dongle ?
Or i need to upgrade to 3.55 Official firmware and downgrade to 3.41 together with lv2diag.self (file1)? Then after downgrade , then input lv2diag.self (file2)? I'm on confused status, some say Slim version couldn't downgrade from 3.55 , it will brick. So what should i do?
I'm having PS3Break dongle and downgrade 3.41 firmware (PS3UPDATE.PUP) I even got the Lv2Diag.self file 1 and file 2 , and even an extra USB empty stick with 512mb space, so which is the correct way to downgrade or upgrade it ?
Cause the Bootloader doesn't have 3.55 PSGrade, it only does have 3.50 PSGrade.

i still use the ps3 break dongle.. i've had no problems and it works perfectly as its intended to.. i have been tempted many times to upgrade fw to kmeaw 3.55 but then resist as i can't really see the point.. sure it may be "better" or whatever you may say but the dongle works 100% for me on every game i own, that would work on 3.55 also.. however, that being said i did purchase my dongle long before cfw became available to the end user and in a case that i were just starting now, i wouldnt buy a dongle, i'd use cfw 100%.. why pay for it if you dont need it.
also i didn't think the slim ever was released with ofw 3.15, maybe i'm wrong, and i thought you couldnt downgrade to fw before what was originally installed on your ps3 at time of manufacture... i'd just double check this before purchase on here and with the store..
enjoy your world of ps3 mate.
