[Answered] PS3 won't update through USB help?
Hey, currently my PS3 3.41 is in service mode and i want to downgrade it to firmware 3.15 so i can have the OtherOS feature. I have followed all the procedures and the console is in service mode, i placed the 3.15 pup file in the PS3/UPDATE folder but my PS3 just won't find it. I have formatted my memory stick (Its in FAT32 as well), I've also used a second memory stick just in case mine was at fault.
It comes up with "No applicable update data was found"
In case anyone wants to know, I've entered service mode using PS3JIG on the PSP because that was on the only device i had to get my PS3 into service mode. So does anyone know how to fix this issue?
If I've left any details out feel free to ask.
You are doing it wrong. You just put the PS3UPDAT.PUP and the first lv2diag.self onto the root of your usb stick, Then put that usb stick into ps3 (must be right usb port - nearest to bluray drive - farthest to righthand side) then reboot while in service mode and it should give you a black screen for about 5-10minutes, green light will flash as proccess gets closer to the end, then it should shutdown by itself and its done. (if it doesnt shut down by itself give it about 20-30 minutes then reboot it manually)
P.S. The 2 lv2diag.self files are in the downgrade files rar that you must have downloaded when you followed all the procedures.
