Can't fit the actual thought in the title, but...

What if the downgrade is actually something that modifies the PS3's firmware during the upgrade to 3.50 (or whatever) and introduces a bug or method to allow it to be downgraded? All the descriptions start with having the ability to update and then they mention downgrading...

If so, then this couldn't be used on PS3s that were updated to 3.42+ the normal way.

The downgrader does not update only downgrades, and this was intended for 3.42 and 3.50 users. That is why the were selling it at $40 USD plus the cost of a psjailbreak. However, they have come to their senses, and now it is free for all original psjailbreak users.

So yeah you can downgrade all ps3s 3.50 and 3.42 to 3.41. I doubt it will work for higher firmwares since Sony will probably block this. We'll have to wait and see.

Well, if you recall correctly, originally the psdowngrader would downgrade only once. Originally, it served only one purpose: to downgrade to 3.41. One ps3 at a time.

psdowngrade does not upgrade ps3's firmware. I'm sure.

I read somewhere that you could only dowgrade to the lowest firmware that was ever installed on a ps3. So if it had 3.5 from the factory, can you still downgrade?

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
