That is our rule here, some sites require 30 days and 30 posts for links but we only require 2 so not that bad

Good Morning,

I have a doubt , next e3 flasher I've always done but took a slim unlock it by sending a patched bios that has the energy and got the black screen , no recovery comes , just black screen.

My question is how I have three valid backup bios and will it be beyond repair ?

Tell me guys, how to downgrade firmware 3.55 to 3.41, with a broken drive by the E3 Card Reader?

Problem such, the console is turned on, then a black screen, and after a few seconds it turns off, it may have other methods of recovery?

I actually had this question recently myself as I too was getting ready to buy one. The answer I got with a helpful tutorial from playerkp420 was no using the noFSM Method.

That what I was told to do and it worked great. Downgraded 2 PS3's that way:

noFSM METHOD - No FSM dongle needed, and will not format your HDD

1. After making your backups continue here and leave your PS3 on. There is no need to reboot. If you patched your dump with the validation guide in Chapter 1, you can skip to step 8.
2. Download PS3 Flash Tool v4.55.rar (https://www.mediafire.com/?m4rz9g7bgds608i) if your PS3 is on OFW 4.55. Or download PS3 Flash Tool v4.60.rar (http://www.mediafire.com/download/b5u515fy5oo5vbc/PS3_Flash_Tool_v4.60.rar) if your PS3 is on OFW 4.60. Using the one for your firmware version, will allow your PS3 to boot to the XMB. You can still use either if on a lower OFW, but will boot to a recovery screen instead. Where you can install the CFW from there. So doesn't really matter what version you use.
3. Extract to Desktop or where ever you like.
4. Put your bkpps3.bin in the PS3 Flash Tool folder.
5. Drag and drop the bkpps3.bin onto ps3_dump_tool.exe
6. The program will open, validate (Hopefully you already validated above. But at least this may tell you if you missed something.), and ask if you want to patch it. Say yes and wait for it to apply the patches.
7. Now there will be a new file named bkpps3_NOR_patched.bin.
8. Delete all files from your sd card and put the bkpps3_NOR_patched.bin on it, renamed to bkpps3.bin
9. Put the sd card in the flasher.
10. Put all switches down on flasher. And press the red reset button under the esata plug on the faceplate.
11. Press start on flasher, and wait for blue leds to light up 1 by 1. When done lights will alternate flash. [You will need the blu ray drive and the HDD, attached for the next steps. So if you are going to remove the flasher, now would be the time to do so. Rebuild and change the thermal compound, with Artic Silver 5.]
12. Reboot PS3 from XMB or simply turn it on.
13. On boot you should see "please connect controller screen" (If your PS3 is on OFW 4.55 and you patched to 4.55, or on 4.60 and patched to 4.60 you will boot to the XMB. You can Install 4.55 CFW or later of your choice [for easier changing CFWs later on, I strongly suggest using the 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?rdxk89z5tf3kajz), and finish the rest of the guide] from XMB -> Settings -> System Update)
14. If you were on any other OFW than 4.55 and get the "please connect controller screen" then CONNECT THE CONTROLLER!
15. Put 4.55 CFW or later of your choice [for easier changing CFWs later on, I strongly suggest using the 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?rdxk89z5tf3kajz), and finish the rest of the guide] of your choice on your flash drive like this:

[Register or Login to view code]

If you are on OFW 4.55, you have to install 4.55 CFW or a CFW that syscon is changed to a higher version. If you are on OFW 4.55, use 4.55 CFW or higher. I strongly suggest using 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?rdxk89z5tf3kajz), then continue with Qa Flag and Installing OFW 3.55. Then update to any CFW. This will make for easier downgrading back to 3.55 or switching CFWs later. Qa Flag can not be enabled on 4.50, 4.53, or 4.55.

WARNING: If Minimum version checker said your PS3 can only go to 3.56, Do not use rogero downgrader. Use this REBUG 4.46.1 REX with syscon changed to 9.99 (http://www.mediafire.com/download/z0r8p4uzg9e5tg0/9.99_REBUG_4.46.1_REX_PS3UPDAT.PUP). Then install Rebug toolbox from Package Manager>Install Package Files>PS3 Hard Disk. Open the toolbox and go all the way right, and enable Qa flag.

Then you can install any CFW you want, from the recovery menu or using Condor Updater (http://www.mediafire.com/?j498ldqgad9urfi). Then you are done, and would only need to install any homebrew apps you want. First one I would suggest is multiMAN 04.60.00 BASE CEX.pkg] (http://www.mediafire.com/download/brnmbfbw7kvdrw9/multiMAN_ver_04.60.00_BASE_CEX_(20140712).pkg).

Get either Rogero 4.55 v1.00 from here, or REBUG 4.46.1 LITE or REX CFW, or Habib 4.60 or REBUG 4.53.3U REX COBRA. Always download CFWs from a trusted place and check the md5s of any firmware you are going to install, with this tool: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1dlp5qk0jvibu4e/PPC+_2.5.0.1_FINAL.zip

16. Insert into the right usb port of the PS3 and follow the on screen instructions, hold start and select. Or install from XMB system update if the PS3 was on OFW 4.55.
17. You will now boot to CFW.
18. If you went straight to 4.50, 4.53, or 4.55 CFW, Install the CFW again from System Update in the XMB. This will fill both ros0 and ros1 in the flash, to the same version. I have experienced some errors, when not installing the CFW 2 times. And is why I suggest using the downgrader pup and continuing with Qa Flag, etc...
