PS3YES has stated, to quote:
"Our downgrade firmware is based on the PSGrade project, we will open the source soon.

Remember PS3YES were the first to release that PSN Hack that lasted a week on their Chinese forums!
Also sadly v3.55 is out so you can only use this great release to Downgrade v3.50 or LOWER firmwares!
NOTE: Importing the HEX to other devices using current payload converters will NOT work!"
