So, what happens if you've updated normally, from 2.3, onward, over time and are now sitting at 8.whatever? Burnt fuses and such. Does this make downgrading impossible? And if downgrading works, can we do the coldbooting?

Thanks, all those unaware kids need to be reminded TX still exists and brings money to this lovely website! Nevermind this is essentially a proprietary not-so-tested alternative/shameless copy to a perfectly fine free software.
Dude, stfu with this nonsense. Seriously.

Frankly i am a little concerned about this newly introduced update/downgrade feature.
They ought to at least provide written information stating about the required fuses to run a given firmare.
"Install any firnware with ease just like you would a NSP" That's a tad misleading and might stir up confusion among those who aren't familiar with these stuff, it would have one believe that downgrading/upgrading is a piece of cake and poses no risks which clearly does.
They should have been more elaborate on that part.


By the by, i like their UI!.

SX Installer is a fork of Tinfoil so he is right in a way...



You'd need a payload like Hekate to bypass the fuse check. You can't unblow fuses.
That's what I was thinking! So I wonder; could it be somehow "another" way this works? They said "with ease", and I'm really a little conflicted right now due to the fact that they decided upon not placing any more information into it. That concerns me a tad.

But you cannot, its impossible i don't want to get technical.
The only way to bypass would be to change the whole switch.

Hm now when you think about it.
They could prevent fuses from getting burnt by autoRCM or something of that manner.
Some people don't want to enable AutoRCM though...
Maybe they replaced the switch bootloader :P

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.
