124w ago - Update: KaKaRoToKS has now confirmed that the PS3 3.55 downgrade is no longer possible, tweeting the following: "sad news.. downgrade worked, but not reliable, only works with one of Xtse's ps3s, but can't reproduce it.. I'm going to look for another way. nope, it only works on one machine, even if same model, it doesn't work on it. No idea what's different about it..."
Today KaKaRoToKS has confirmed via Twitter news of PS3 downgrade success from version 3.55 to 3.41 PlayStation 3 Firmware.
This confirmation comes just days since his PS3 Custom Firmware surfaced and under a month after the PSGrade free PS3 Downgrading hex codes arrived for version 3.5 and below consoles, followed by Sony revoking lv2diag.self file_1 and patching PS3 downgrading in the PS3 Firmware 3.55 update.
Here is his Tweet, to quote: "First downgrade from 3.55 to 3.41 successful, Thanks to Xtse! Method not yet ready for the masses because of risk of bricking the ps3."
Currently this is all the details available, but we will update this post as more surface as always!

i cant wait for this to be released. i found all this stuff out literally the day after i updated to 3.55. i was even considering buying a ps3 with 3.41 to really be able to check stuff out. this could save me some money. will it be able to install backup manager? i'd really like to be able to pt my games on the hdd so my kids wont scratch the discs.
I hope we get backup managers working, I'm not really into game piracy, but it's nice having all of my games on the HDD, I'm pretty happy with how the scene is evolving so quickly, too bad we can't run unsigned code on CFW yet like the PSP, hopefully we can soon
