    From what I have manage to find out about this they will write off the unit and send you a refurbished model.

    so they won't know what firmware you have but they will also possibly send you a newer firmware then 3.55 on the refurbished model with new hard drive and none of your user details.

    Sony don't give you back the same PS3, they usually give you a new PS3 (same model) and take your broken PS3 for parts or whatever.

    If you've already voided the warranty or it's over I would find a different way on fixing your YLOD.

    Do you think that would be possible with the older PS3 models? Like the hardware support ones for example

    Well I'm assuming they will send you back the same PS3 model as you sent in (if that's what you were asking ).

    The easiest way for you would be if you just send your PS3 in without an HDD

    And the 35 GB are reserved for the System.
