    You need a downgrader. A harddrive with 3.55 installed doesn't work.

    not for a 3000 model. The 3000 model cannot be downgraded therefor there is no way to exploit it. I would trade it for a 2000 or a phat with a lower firmware. If you get a phat or slim 2000 on a firmware higher than 3.55 then you will need the hardware flasher as listed above.
