Hi. I have an older PS3 60gb and i wanted to downgrade it from 3.50 to 3.41- then jailbreak it. I bought an E3 reader and download the files need to do the work. I have 4 USB ports and the farthest right (the one closest to the BD drive) is broken. i can see the 4 metal prongs inside but a dongle stuck into it cannot be read.
So anyway I was able to get the PS3 into service mode- no problem! But then when i when to do the downgrade I could not. i plugged in the USB dongle into one of the 3 good USB port and when i started up , the machine just went to the start menu showing me its in service mode.
IS IT MANDATORY to use the last usb port on the RIGHT? If someone can help me i would be super happy!
