    Wtf you bought it for no reason. You need an E3 Flasher, not E3 Card Reader

    This device WAS classed as a downgrade tool when you were on 3.41. Now you need the E3 flasher which connects direct to the nor chip on the motherboard to downgrade from latest firmware to 3.55

    But for doing just one console you'll come cheaper if you find someone doing the downgrade and the CFW install for you also you need the skills to take your console apart and together again to use the e3 flasher. Or you did something like this before and plan to do more than one ps3. Then you should buy the flasher. Sorry dude.
