June 28, 2011 // 9:35 pm - Today dospiedras1973 has shared a PS3 Firmware 3.6x downgrade method for 256MB NAND (Fat) consoles via the Infectus PlayStation 3 mod-chip alongside a Waninkoko CFW Brick Fix followed by a New Method - PS3 Downgrade v2 Supports all NOR Flash from TwoStone.

Download: PS3 Firmware 3.6x Downgrade via Infectus / PS3 Firmware 3.6x Downgrade via Infectus v2 / Waninkoko Brick Fix Guide

To quote, roughly translated: Hello, I've been working on this project about two months now since I've gotten to work as public so that everyone can use, this tutorial is for consoles with 256MB NAND flash does not mean it does not work in 16MB in itself is changed almost the same in those with normal flash, but because even I have my fat 16mb 80GB I have not been able to neither prove nor verified.

Nougat (the phrase I owe to some forero around here that I really liked the expression):

With INFECTUS flash0.bin and we get our nand flash1.bin as in the tutorial to repair bad lukin nands do the same process until we get our dump flashfinal.bin 256MB nand we open this with a simple hex editor and look for this part editor:

"00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 6F FF E0"

You will see that just under a very similar line, I find this data in the offset 000C0020 may vary according to the nand and the party starts here

EVEN replace that line with the file if you use the hxd 1patchcos.bin get in the first 0 of the line -> right click and paste, writing before you have to have an open 1patchcos.bin hxd in hex and copy its contents to can paste.. then we find the second file to patch at hxd we dump on our part:

"00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 40"

And in the same way as the first patched patched this also cojemos 2patchtrvk.bin pack the file and replace the entire contents including the:

"00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 40"

Then we take the option we use reescramble flowrebuilder this dump so we rebuild our flash0.ECC.bin and flash1.ECC.bin and flash the result, when you finish you will notice that the PS3 now has a nice on but black screen, it cojemos our factory jig to put it into service mode and put it in factory, then the typical cojemos lv2diag of yore and the pup you please.

(NOTE: the first pup that metais will stay in the console as the minimum version that you can downgrade then, if you want to lose 3.55 to 3.41 then you will have to put the pup up to 3.41 before 3.55 or 3.55 will remain in that if cost will not rewrite the dump again to downgrade to lower the pup that you put the first time.)

Then you put your factory lv2diag to leave the service and you're

Note: this applies to repair the brick Waninkoko NAND not plates even sem-001 (tested) (and step downgrade )

This method should also work for CECHH and later FAT models - they have also 16MB NOR-flash. Fatties CECHA..CECHG need another method.

Swapping HD and flashing proper image.bin won't take hours. Cool would be to glue a PCB with 16MB NOR flash and connector to HD so you would swap the proper flash the same time you swap the HD

With this method you can use CFW with it's advantages or swap to 3.70 and go onlline.

No, the Infectus downgrade method is for the older NAND consoles. The new consoles are NOR based which require a progskeet or similar to interface with the flash.

No, no, no.... This is simply to downgrade your console to the 'special' firmware versions (for jailbreaking/installing CFW) such as 3.41 or 3.55 (or whichever you choose)

someone needs to figure out how to make something that you can place over the processor and hook in to it with out soldering make something like a bottle cap for it so that all you got to do is place over the processor and lock it over the processor.. it cant be that hard.

think how they got other computers and that might help. what needs to be done is make a mold of the processor and design a cap that locks on the processor and after that more people will buy the mod chip i know this is what everybody is waiting for because they don't want to miss up their ps3 make the cap for the processor.
