    I'm too excited and busy to read up any further on this, has anyone successfully downgraded?

    http://www.psdowngrade.com/

    FTA: Please note: PS Downgrade is ONLY compatible with original PS Jailbreak, no clones or inferior USB dongles.

    My PS3 is dead but I'm funna go out and buy me a new one this holiday if I can go from 3.50 to 3.41 just like that [​IMG]

    Is it an actual 2nd dongle or just a very expensive 5 lines of code software update? Anyways, from what i have read it will only work once. And i think that's because it writes something to one of those write-only-once chips. => It will be possible to detect this by sony.

    Pretty sure that if you go out now and buy a PS3 it'll be on 3.41. I believe.

    I also read it only works once. (?) Not sure if it means it works once on a certain PS3, or that their downgrade devices only work once then self destruct, or what not. Its not clear to me.
    edit: well if it isn't a second dongle, then it just works once on a certain ps3 then.

    What is that supposed to mean? You plug in a PS Jailbreak to your pc AND plug a PS Downgrade in too? [​IMG]

    No, the PS Jailbreak is the PS Downgrade. That is, you install the ps downgrade software on your ps jailbreak, downgrade your PS3, and then put the original ps jailbreak software back on the device so it can be used like normal
