    It can't be done using this method. Downgrading the browser using another method will make the browser useless unless you're already running Haxchi or CBHC CFW, which will make the browser unusable as a way to load the Homebrew Launcher or Mocha CFW if you don't already have Haxchi/CBHC.

    In short, don't downgrade the browser. It doesn't work.

    It sure looks that way.

    I remember 5.3.2 was able to lauch Loadiine GX2 , was it through an web expoit ? I'm thinking about launching a game with 5.5.1 update from Loadiine and , it does the update ? If it does not with Loadiine format , maybe it works with "brazilian " format ? Does the brazilian format work on 5.3.2 ?
    I'm thinking all the exploits discovered in 5.5.1 are functional in lower versions too . Also , it there a way to "protect " the browser from being updated ?

    Hi guys, I went through this guide (and after failing to install via ostitleloader i managed to manually download them and use the GX wup installer. only problem was that i missed out the last file 000500101000400A as I assumed it would install and then let me install that before rebooting. System rebooted and shows 5.5.2 (with 5.5.1 browser) but for the life of me I cant get any HBL or HBC to come on it keeps going to black screen with spinning blue circle.
    is there a method to install this OSv10 file. ive exhausted most methods..... or can I just upgrade to full 5.5.2 and maybe it will exploit easier...

    I am having this same error where it says my java size is illegal when I use the common key I found online and put it into the common.key file. If someone could PM me what I am doing wrong that would be a lot of help. I'm looking to go from 5.3.2U up to this. Thanks.

    why follow old guides?
    just update your console, then use the 5.5.2 exploit (80% chance of success is not so bad, and not impossible).

    if you are stuck with half an update, let the console update to fix the missing titles.



    the common.key is a binary file, not a text file.
    copy/pasting the key inside a file as text will not work.
    you don't need the key number, you need the key file. if you have the key value, use a hex editor to paste it into a binary file.

    or, just update your console to 5.5.2 and hack it with following the noob guide.
