235w ago - As a follow-up to the Infectus and E3 Card Reader PS3 Downgrader news, today the PS3 Break Team (and the PS3Key/EcliPS3 Teams) have also confirmed they have a PlayStation 3 Downgrader for 3.50 Firmware consoles incoming.

Below is a picture, and the announcement from their site, linked above:

Currently, news spreads on Internet regarding some brand dongle companies have capable of downgrading PS3 firmware from v3.50 to v3.41.

PS3Break dongle is ultimate testing. It will be officially launched in the next few days! please expect together !

So it appears all of the PS JailBreak PS3 modchip clone devices will utilize the PS3 downgrader functionality, and here is to hoping a free version also surfaces soon.



Rumor: PS3 Master Key / Device Key Finally Uncovered?

You're really a bad boy!

Good thinking batman! Completely forgot about that - just found it on my flash drive.

Can I run the exploit kit with asbestos? I'll try and dig out a tutorial or something.

Why not just load AsbestOS on 3.41, no need to go back to 3.15 right?

That's great to hear, since I have a Fat ps3 (more cushion for the pushin as they say lol)

Just a quicky, I've got most the information on how to do this. Only thing I'm missing is the glitch hardware. Is there something I can do with a PIC 18F2550?

i'd love some confirmation on the slim as it's a pain to back up.

That's good news guys. So what your both saying is basically I don't have to back anything up before I upgrade/downgrade. I have the fat ps3 btw.

Can you confirm that it does infact reformat your HDD? (the e3 downgrader)


it deletes absolutely nothing

when you update/downgrade and turn off service mode the ps3 starts the initial firmware setup - once its done it will ask you to restore the previous data.

done n done

also yeah id love a tripod
