To quote, roughly translated: The first downgrade to 3.70 on PS3 Slim 3:55, DiGiTaLAnGeL tested by us!
For the first time, we have been involved in something truly spectacular We were the first in the world to test the downgrade from 3.70 to 3:55 on a PS3 Slim (With flash memory, "NOR") using the ProgSkeet and patched some files provided by dospiedra, a famous Spanish coder already riding high for having discovered the method of going back to 3.55/3.41 with the PS3 (FAT flash memory "NAND").
After several attempts, in collaboration with dospiedra, we got to go back from 3.70 to 3:55, enter the factory mode with a simple key to jailbreak, rifleshare a modified version of 3:55 to prevent the SYSCON (the registry in between downgrades) was consulted during the downgrade and now we are happily at 3:55 KMEAW!
With this version of moddata 3:55, you can perform a memory dump today and you can switch on the fly from 3:55 to 3.70 without having to do this all the time-consuming process: using progskeet fact you can go straight to 3.70 changed to 3:55!
Dospiedra said it will release details on the patches applied to the NOR and the update file as soon as possible.
New life for those who arrived too late to enjoy the benefits of the 3:55?

and i wanted to be original darn lol great minds think alike also if you didn't want to go through all the trouble of the dual nand you could always hock your infectus up permanently to your ps3 and then make a new mini usb port on the back of your ps3 buy cutting and wiring up a male usb to female mini usb then use a usb to mini to cook it to your computer when you need to flash.
i wish i could afford one of these chips i'm thinking about putting all the information i read about in this fourm and others in one organized website dedicated to downgrading and mods i need help extracting all the pertinent information though.
when all is done im going to make a chip switch i'll buy a identical nand set and put 3.70 on the original and 3.55 on the copy soldered to a daughter board also a hard drive cable split when you flick the switch it changes from one harddrive plus nand to the other harddrive and nand no need to reflash every time. how does that sound.
