    No, its not saved on the hard drive its stored on a chip on the ps3, the only way to go back down is to grab a flasher and solder it to the main board

    The version is not a setting.

    You can't downgrade with any of the options in the menu.

    the core boot files reside in NOR/NAND (physical chip).Files on HDD are some kind of teh "extension" of firmware.
