Sponsored Links
203w ago - As a follow-up to the Infectus and E3 Card Reader PS3 Downgrader news, today the PS3 Break Team (and the PS3Key/EcliPS3 Teams) have also confirmed they have a PlayStation 3 Downgrader for 3.50 Firmware consoles incoming.

Below is a picture, and the announcement from their site, linked above:

Currently, news spreads on Internet regarding some brand dongle companies have capable of downgrading PS3 firmware from v3.50 to v3.41.

PS3Break dongle is ultimate testing. It will be officially launched in the next few days! please expect together !

So it appears all of the PS JailBreak PS3 modchip clone devices will utilize the PS3 downgrader functionality, and here is to hoping a free version also surfaces soon.

Lol, that's good. I just wanted to note here as well, if you replace the 3.41 pup with the original 3.50 pup, this will also save you from a semi-brick. Not only that, but your console should still be in service mode as well. So that should help anyone else who may or may not be experiencing this problem. Cheers!

yeah buddy it's easy to fix. i deleted that video to make a better one.

i'll show everybody the REAL bricking - i only did the failed downgrade bricking.

i'm going to write garbage to the flash

you will also not be able to turn off service mode with the second self file either. nore can you update again as youve most likely turned off the ps3.

the fix is simple though, just hard reset it and try to re-enter service mode. sometimes it won't work and sometimes it will - it took me two tries. when youre in service mode (you can only tell by the dongles light) - try the whole process again but use the modified 3.41 update.


What about if you have made NAND backups with infectus? Can you just restore the backup of the 3.50 firmware? I'd be willing to try this - I already have made backups of my 3.50 console...
