January 7, 2011 // 3:37 am - Update: KaKaRoToKS has now confirmed that the PS3 3.55 downgrade is no longer possible, tweeting the following: "sad news.. downgrade worked, but not reliable, only works with one of Xtse's ps3s, but can't reproduce it.. I'm going to look for another way. nope, it only works on one machine, even if same model, it doesn't work on it. No idea what's different about it..."

Today KaKaRoToKS has confirmed via Twitter news of PS3 downgrade success from version 3.55 to 3.41 PlayStation 3 Firmware.

This confirmation comes just days since his PS3 Custom Firmware surfaced and under a month after the PSGrade free PS3 Downgrading hex codes arrived for version 3.5 and below consoles, followed by Sony revoking lv2diag.self file_1 and patching PS3 downgrading in the PS3 Firmware 3.55 update.

Here is his Tweet, to quote: "First downgrade from 3.55 to 3.41 successful, Thanks to Xtse! Method not yet ready for the masses because of risk of bricking the ps3."

Currently this is all the details available, but we will update this post as more surface as always!

I got my wires crossed. I was thinking of the famous 3.5 Jailbreak.

Yes there is. If you are more fortunate than i am, and you happen to have a Slim which serial number doesn't end with 2500-25xx.

Here's a pretty good tutorial for it:

Don't know if this has been asked before... I apologize if i have repeated a query.. So let me get this straight.. If I had an older generation of the Slim.. And I accidentally updated it to 3.5 from 3.41.. Is there a chance for me to downgrade with the E3 reader?

Thanks all for the help.

3.5 is downgradeable since quite a while with one exception: The new PS3 Slims with CECH 25xx that block the downgrade.

I happen to have one of those, so i'm pretty excited about getting signed apps and CFWs that allow backups.

I wonder what ever happend to the team that said they had a 3.5 downgrade about a month ago? One big scam to make sales?

KaKaRoToKS owns.
