233w ago - A few days back an FLA file and some instructions were posted to compliment the previously released update software for the PSJailBreak Team's PSDowngrade product, and today the PS JailBreak downgrade files have been leaked through a nice but anonymous source on IRC.

Download: PS JailBreak Downgrade Files (167 MB - 175,619,467 bytes) Mirror #1 / Mirror #2 / Mirror #3 / Mirror #4 / Mirror #5 / Mirror #6

Currently work is being done towards a free public PS3 downgrader alternative to the pay version, and based on a preliminary examination of the leaked PS Downgrader 3.41 PUP and Lv2diag.self files they appear to include a modified PUP along with the official Sony PlayStation 3 JIG Files that were also leaked nearly two years ago.

Usually JIG files use a special PUP to downgrade as inside its CORE_OS package is flagged for downgrading, however, this is not the case. It seems that the PUP has been modified to allow downgrading, perhaps via another yet undisclosed exploit... Time will tell for sure!

Let the Console wars begin. sigh, the 360 trolls never stop, and once the ps3 hack is out, they will slowly bow down and get them selves a far superior system, PS3.

^ Ps, why would you even mention the 360s controller and saying its better then the ps3? when we can actually recharge it out of the box & use sixaxis? The shape/feel of it is subjective and to each hes own, but looks aside, come on now, just admit the defeat just like $ONY should to the PS3 Hackers.

Oh and back on topic, Thanks to all that have contributed to this leak/accomplishment, this is trully great news for the folks like me with the 3.5, although i have 2 systems, and the other one is on 3.3x

LET THE GAMES BEGIN.

So using these files and the PS Jailbreak's team PC app can I actually use this to downgrade a 3.5 PS3 if I have an official PS Jailbreak or is this more a take a look at the files to figure it out for the masses sort of thing?

The PS3 is only slightly better than the 360 as a system, but the 360's controller is vastly superior to the PS3's patched version of the PS1 controller.

Sadly both systems are necessary to play the best games, but either one by themselves is still pretty good.

OK too far off topic.

It's nice to see progress, but it's still a ways off from a fully hacked system. I wonder if the ability to decrypt the FWs will allow for future payloads to add features only available in higher FWs. If this would be possible it would be the next best thing to CFW.

I've been on this site since before it was ps2 and i've never posted. But you are smoking crack. The PS3 is hitting it's stride and the 360 is at the end of what it can do hardwarewise. Final Fantasy XIII... beautiful on ps3, drunken tranny on the 360 (ugly thing you don't wanna look at). Red Dead Redemption, constant fragmenting/tears on 360. Near perfect on ps3.

Watch any intro movie on a game from the last year and you totally see the difference. They know how to program for the ps3 now. Dragon's Age glitches like a virgin trying to get her panties off on prom night during the intro movie on the 360. Perfect on the PS3 My ps3 is a cheerleader who can take a whole football team and still have the energy to work a bake sale fundraiser.

I am on my 5th 360 due to RROD even with heat guns, screws, memory pads, every damn thing you can think of. Eventually the solder won't melt right and you are screwed till you swap the innerds with one from SameGtop. Never had one yellow light of death on any of my 3 ps3's. Ya, 3. 1 jb up and 1 downstairs, and one legit 3.50 to avoid the pain of constant recompiling.

And the controller... come the faq on. I was an xbox fanboy, and I said the same thing about the hulk controller with the original Halo, "It really feels good in my hands." But I played every FPS on both systems starting with Call of Duty 2 on the 360. Killzone 2 was bearable, but still felt wrong with the ps3 controller. Then when MW2 came out I got the prestige on 360 and then ended up getting a PS3 copy to play with some friends. I hated the ps3 controller, but after awhile I totally prefer my playstation controller to the 360.

The controller on the PS3 is the same as the PS1 controller for a reason. It fits in big hands and little asian hands "aww penis so smaww", "So smaww." )Chimpokomon. The controller feels good, and if it ain't big enough, put a grip on it and stop griping. My 360 controller makes my hands cramp after playing for hours on end. My thumbs feel like i've been workin over a 40 year old scabby hooker with "the hitchhiker" maneuver.

After playing every major game on both systems... the 360 is a legacy piece of crap... until Gears 3 hits that is. Kinect is fun, but Resident Evil 5 with move support, nuff frackin said.

PS3 has a 10 year life cycle. And they believe in that. They still make ps2 games, and 90% of those titles can still be played online. Xbox titles... hmm, not so much.

My 360 had a 6 month life cycle... but seriously, it has maybe 2 years left in it. I'll be able to sell my PS3's for a phat sum to the mexicans on craigslist in 2016 with no problemo.

K, that was really too long. Apparently I am on crack.

And to the egohot comment... MAD PROPS.... That Frodo Baggins dbag looks like he french kissed a light socket, but seriously Frodo thanks for limerain cause my ipad was a brick without the free games.

hahaha, nice trolling implying the 360 controller is better than anything? Very original!

but this method works only on psjailbreak, or i can use this downgrade on my psbreak?

Now correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't the modified 3.41 count as cfw? Its not as sony shiped, check, it only installs with a special method, check, it does somthing factory firmware does not, check (install on a higher firmware in service mode) check.

BUT if psjailbreak has a special downgrade pup even back to 1.10 they could just change files like geohot did to re-enable otheros and sign it like he did through a hacked linux on ps3. This means its not really a cfw like geohots wasn't a cfw in the "traditional" sense.
