28w ago - This weekend Spanish PS3 developer jubytoo has shared a video demo and the related files to allow those with a Factory 3.56 OFW (minimum) console and a PS3 Hardware Flasher to install the recently released E3 PS3 CFW 4.30 with no dongle required!
Below is the demo video and details, roughly translated: CFW 4.30 GOT IN CONSOLE WITH FACTORY minimum firmware 3.56 (FLASHER NEEDED)
Those of you currently with minimum version 3.56 PS3 are in luck With the collaboration of Varicella and Luckymas we have installed CFW 4.30 E3 in such consoles.
Apart indicate that with these patches also apply to install CFW 4.30 E3 directly from any superior to 4.31 OFW no consoles also manufactures minimum version of 3.55 or less and saved the downgrade, without dongle, without factory faster.
For now only in memories NOR, NAND patches for the climb soon after being tested.
We will need these patches Patchv1 Three Musketeers: http://www.mediafire.com/?54r17h5dt054ohx
No need dongle but if a flasher to get our dump, several statutes on how to do it with eol progskeet, E3 or teensy.
Since having our dump patches the following offset:
Since they write patched with a flasher, start the PS3 ripped recovery in a pen and insert the CFW 4.30 PS3/UPDATE E3 in the folder (if you were in 4.30 OFW ripped console normally, in this case enter recovery and update E3 4.30 CFW from there)
Tested on multiple consoles FACTORY OFW 3.56. (We assume that on PS3 with 3.60 OFW METLDR2 NO MINIMUM FACTORY WORKS BUT NOT TESTED)
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISUSE CAN BE DONE AND THAT MAY CAUSE BRICK.
Video PS3 with version 3.56 running CFW 4.30 factory
DATA TO CONSIDER
AT LEAST 3.56OFW PS3 FACTORY WITH YOU CAN NOT NEVER DOWN 4.30 UP BUT WITH OTHER FUTURE PATCHES OR ANOTHER INSTALL CFW OFW SI HOS get tired
THESE ARE ONLY PATCHES TO INSTALL CFW 4.30 E3 multiMAN OTHER CFW EVEN BEING DAMAGED DATA INDICATE OS 30.4 when trying to install from the Recovery.

Nearly two months after the previous update, today I have posted a guide and video on how to downgrade a PS3 4.31 OFW console (including CECH-300x slims) to 4.30 Rogero v2.03 CFW using a PS3 Hardware Flasher with no 3.55 needed.
Very easy tutorial. Follow the steps to downgrade a PS3, but when you get to the first step of the USB downgrading part after putting your PS3 into service mode, use Rogero 4.30 CFW v2.03 on the root of the USB with the lv2diag.self to downgrade instead of the 3.55.
So again, no 3.55 ever touches the PS3 during this whole setup! Doing this will also now allow CECH-300x models original slims to be downgraded to 4.30 CFW as long as it never touches 3.55
The whole reason for this was to find out if the E3 fits a CECH-400xx model super slim models, but all I needed was proof that you can downgrade from 4.31 to 4.30 CFW with a flasher.
So if any one out there has an E3 and a new super slim model please test this if it works! You can make back ups of the NOR incase it fails.
Here is proof you can but I still do not know if the CECH-400xx models are compatible since I do not have one.
Step 1 - switch pup's with Rogero's 4.30 CFW v2.03 - my link has it set ready
Step 2 - lv2diag out of factory mode
PS3 nor dump patcher to fix bad back-ups
downgrade.bin - makes it rewrite the nor to allow factory mode access
update.bin - its the Samsung version of the flasher firmware, allows multi-console downgrades.. more than one console in other words
PS3 Flowrebuilder - decrypts the backups to look and make sure its good
Here is proof of me downgrading to 4.30 CFW no 3.55! My video is not cut but speeds up through the middle since it takes almost 2 hours to prove this. You see every time I drop the camera, fix the E3 and finish the downgrade straight to 4.30 CFW Rogero v2.03 which you will know it's spoofed to 4.31, you can see the install PKG / lastGAME icon after downgrading.
Hint: The E3 always has the ribbon starting under the NOR words (pictured below).
Always test your back ups and even use Flowrebuilder 4.2.2 to reverse decrypt to make sure your back up was good.
looks like you currently in rebug rex .999 downgrade firmware which is identical to rebug 3.55rex but since your minvercheck on ps3 states 3.56 im not entirely sure how you managed it, or how you got to e3 4.30 cfw either. however since rebug .999 downgrade fw is identicle to 3.55rebug rex then i assume you could toggle Qa and install rebug 4.25 rex from xmb.
not sure how this would go, but im not sure how you got on any of the cfws if your min version was 3.56. DO NOT ENTER FSM if your version is stating 3.56 or you could get stuck there permanently.
I'm assuming you used flasher to get on e3 4.30 cfw and if thats the case then you really shouldnt have tried to use the .999 downgrade pup since your ps3 min ver is 3.56
if this is in fact the case, only thing i could think of is toggle Qa and install rebug4.25rex with your fingers crossed lol
