If you didn't know, the address to their Press site is [Register or Login to view links] and Sony offers free access to all members of the press there using SCEA / SC3APR to login and obtain the latest press releases and related files.

Finally, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.

We have 100% confirmed that running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

i have a DECHA00A- i think sony have blocked the downgrade from lower then 3.56 with the test unit! i hope i'm wrong.

ps: here in the forum is nowhere a 2.50- only a 2.53?!

what model of debug you have, an old dechc-a/j or a new slim test? i think its a new slim, so my idea doesn't work for you, i had an old phat ps3 test, a dechca, i always had the possibility to downgrad to 1.0 and any other version. do you have downloaded the 2.5 update from this site, try this one.

hope it helps you, would be sad to here that you can't downgrade anymore.

same here, greets from austria
