229w ago - Since the release of PS3 Firmware v3.55 there is no sense in keeping the master key a secret any more - it has been released, along with unencrypted payloads, and a promise to release the source-code by PS3YES for a free PSGrade PS3 downgrader.

Download: PSGrade / PSGrade PS3 Hex Codes / psgrade_teensy_at90usb1286_16.hex by littlebalup

Of note, the downgrade hex will only work on PS3's with a firmware of 3.50 or below.

The same team which brought the PSN spoof for online support of jailbreaks now has also brought us a Free Downgrade HEX for the PS3! PS3YES has released un-encrypted HEX files for downloading.

They promise open-source code to be release soon, but find below pre-compiled HEX files:

PSGRADE AT90USB646-16Mhz Teensy++ 1.0
PSGRADE AT90USB1286-16Mhz Teensy++ 2.0
PSGRADE AT90USB1287-8Mhz
PSGRADE PS3YES
PSGRADE PS3YES AT90USB162-8mhz
PSGRADE PS3YES AT90USB162-16mhz

This is the last line from psgrade_ps3yes.hex

Furthermore: A PS3YES flash update and PS3 Downgrade guide have been posted here and PS3Key flashes have been posted here.

PS3YES has stated, to quote:

"Our downgrade firmware is based on the PSGrade project, we will open the source soon.

Support for the following:

PS3YES AT90USB162 8mhz
PS3YES AT90USB162 16mhz
AT90USBKEY at90usb1287 8mhz
Teensy++ 1.0 at90usb646 16mhz
Teensy++ 2.0 at90usb1286 16mhz

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!"

OK I cleaned the mess up some... removed the files evilsperm requested and posts made by dinks who can't follow the clear rules. Also to remind everyone: we don't allow Tweets in the Forum, follow the people's Twitter accounts for those and all files must be attached not hotlinked.

I will attach all of the hexcodes later tonight to various posts here and then put the main download link for them all in the first post.

Awesome. Thanks.

I haven't bought any games requiring 3.5 yet, but eventually I will and I'll eventually be needing 3d blu-ray support as well if the kits for my TV ever come down in price a bit.

It's good knowing I'll still be able to downgrade to run homebrew while being able to play GT5 and watch 3d movies. I hardly ever use PSN so I see no reason I'll need 3.55 at any point soon.
