    Hi PS3 gurus,

    I have PS3 with 3.65 FW (model CECHJ02),just want to check if i can downgrade it to 3.55 FW?

    Once i have downgraded to 3.55 FW, can I play my downloaded games ? or do i need another software to help run the game?

    What are the limitation?
    Can i still play avi, mp4, mp3 after downgrade ?

    Appreciate any help from all the PS3 gurus out there....

    thank you

    J

    Hi Whompus,

    Thanks for your reply.
    E3 flasher seems to require a bit of hardware modification.
    can i use kmeaw CFW instead?
    or is there any other alternative ?

    Thanks

    Johnny

    The E3 flasher is the only one available which does not require soldering.

    Also downgraders and CFW are 2 different things.

    Since you are above 3.55 you first have to downgrade, using a downgrader, to 3.55
    Then you have to install CFW such as kmeaw.

    Only other downgraders I know of are teensy and progskeet, and both of those require lots of soldering in wires.

    Sorry progskeet is solderless but requires quite a few ribbon cables.
