    “software downgrades for cfw compatible consoles”

    3.55 is still required to use CFW, as the CFW uses the old keys that were leaked “back in the day”.

    The software downgrade allows any console which was shipped with 3.55 or lower, to downgrade in order to install CFW, without the need of a hardware flasher. Greatly expanding the potential units for the average user to use as a CFW system.

    @ Raptor according to the article not initially due to 3k and 4K metldr. They will work on a henkaku type exploit afterwards. They advise to not update past 4.81.

    That´s so *** great as a have a CECHA01, that no one does the hardware downgrade. Playing PS2 games in native way will be awesome

    Does This mean we get a USB device type b for the vita? Aka psplinkusb or vitalinkusb?

    I just checked my ps3 and it’s a ****2011 model. I bought it used like 3 years ago, it has 500gb hard drive. My question is with the new terms of agreement I accepted (because I also have a vita and ps4) how can I avoid anymore updates on my ps3 if by chance another update arrives while I’m downloading some of the games I’ve bought? I’m asking because if I remember correctly it said in the new terms sony could automatically install new updates…
