    Well, hey there guys.

    I just bought a PS3 Slim - Model CECH-2501B and Datacode 0C - and wanted to ask if there is a possibility to downgrade it to 3.55 so I can put on a CFW?

    However, I don't really want to pay 70€ for an E3-Flasher, and I read something about "downgrading without flasher" on the web a few days ago...

    So I wanted to ask you:
    Is it possible to downgrade this PS3 without an E3 Flasher?
    Or is there a good (and cheap) alternative to flash the PS3?

    Nope, just fakes. You NEED an hardware downgrader.

    Nope, no alternatives except really hard to build (and to use) homemade programmers.

    Well, I found some alternative.
    It's cheaper (~30€) than buying my own flasher.

    Letting someone else do it :)
    There is someone doing such a service in Germany, so I'm fine there.
    It also get's me some warranty, so I don't have to be worried.

    Thanks anyway.

    Also, I heard rumors about a 4.41 jailbreak / CFW exploit?

    Is this true?

    Cause I could downgrade my PS3 to 4.40 minimum with the Safe-Mode (told me at initial setup :))
