    Reason why is because I saw some relatively new videos stating it is in fact possible for a person to have OFW 4.81 to jailbreak into a CFW.
    (This seemed like the most legit )

    You'll brick 100%. Either you downgrade to 3.55 with a hardmod or you don't downgrade at all.

    Yes, this is an (old at this point) trick to get you to brick your self. The only way to downgrade is to take an e3 flasher to the NOR or a teensy++ for example to the NAND(for fat consoles) and to take a dump and modify it thereby flashing it back with the older firmware. To even get to that point the PS3 had to at least come out of the factory with 3.55 installed at some point so half of the slim models can't be downgraded and all super slim models come out of the factory above 3.55 leaving you with no way to downgrade.

    Everything is possible but nobody wants to move their fat lazy asses to do anything.
    To that video, it's fake.

    Just a bit to the right, or was left...
    I'm not calling video false, I'm just saying that there's a higher chance Jesus really was a zombie than this being real...

    if something too good to be true is in a video on youtube that has more dislikes than likes, it's normally fake
