58w ago - Following up on our previous release, today myself (OverX) and HwapX have made available a Venix Downgrade PS3 4.11 to 3.55 Patch GUI for those interested followed by a translation error fix and update v1.2 and revision 4 below.
Warning: According to the PS3 Dev Wiki (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Talkowngrading_with_Hardware_flasher#Venix_Autopatcher) the Venix Autopatcher / Downgrade tool is known and proven to give false positives on bad dumps that lead to permabricks.
Use this method (ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Validating_flash_dumps): Validating flash dumps to make sure the dumps are in crisp condition. You cannot recover from bad flash without proper dumps (e.g. bricking the console beyond repair).
From eussnl: The only thing this tool tests is size and "oya," nothing else. It blindly copypastes ps3 binary code from inside its EXE inside the file. In best case scenario (if a proper validated dump was used) it creates a patched file just like Winskeet, Progskeet etc do since a long time.
There is no need for a tool that gives users a false feeling of security, while in reality there is none. You need Flowrebuilder anyhow to extract+check and validate your dump. I see no reason why you should not be using the builtin autopatcher of Flowrebuilder too (which is a veteran tool, as Flowrebuilder has been intensely tried+tested+bugfixed).
Venix Downgrade is a Windows application that lets you use your patch in NOR or NAND to return to version "downgrade" 4.11 to 3.55. You can also compare your flash to check if there is errors.
Application created to facilitate the process:
Compatible with Progskeet, E3 Flasher, Teensy 2.0++ other.
Compatible with NOR and NAND.
Script to check malformed headers, File names, Region names.
Now select the "Byte reverse and extract a NOR dump file."
Open your NOR and execute the function.
The program will create a new NOR with the extension. REV.
Remove the extension and apply the patch to v1.2 Downgrade Venix
CFV 2.0 Revision-4 Changelog:
Language support - for now is only a Polish, English, German and Spanish. Unfortunately, no special characters support (we plan in future add external font support in lang.xml).
Translated databases into German and Spanish.
Updated English databases.
New icon for displaying text files (i.e readmes/changelogs). Files are define in and read from files DIR.
Other minor fixes (SHA2-224 on Windows XP not support yet).
Thanks for translations: Fatman, toto67 and Evilnat. Complete list of rebug fw info set, and a few others. List is not complete but i'll try in future complete it. Some of ./files are ripoff site news (because there's was no official readmes).
