    ps3 WARNING: Downgrading PlayStation 3 Kills BD Playback

    Downgrading your PS3 MAY in SOME cases STOP you from watching any Blu-Ray movies! (Games still work!)



    Quote by garyopa
    Ok, we need to work on this Blu-Ray playback it is MAJOR PROBLEM!

    I was able to restore one machine I had, by copying over all the files I had in the /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3 back to the HDD, that I had saved before when it was on v3.41

    But that does not help those that were on v3.50 factory fresh or with no previous full /dev_flash2 & 3 backup.

    I not sure what file was that fixed the problem.

    We need more machines, more tests.

    I going start a thread and warn people right now!

    The people having bluray movies playback issues after downgrading, this happens because you updated to a modified PUP (psjb one) which has its /dev_flash3/ tarball swapped (probably to a debug one, debug consoles do not sport bd movies playback) with other CRL/DRL revocation files.

    Having read some posts online, it seems that majority of people who did downgrade, still have a working BD Playback for movies. Interesting. Could it be the downgrade files (modified 3.41 PUP) that is causing the problem?

    *UPDATE to possible fix by Mathieulh*
    Replacing /dev_flash3/ to a backup according to multiple accounts, fixed the problem.

    However, the above method does no good for consoles that came pre-installed with 3.50 as there is no "dev_flash3" to backup from. You can also see what other people are using to downgrade, what consoles they're using and if they are affected over at PSX-Scene (Blu-ray player, does yours still work after downgrade).

    Whatever the case, one must take caution before going on ahead and flashing their PS3's NAND flash. No one wants a big, glossy and expensive brick that can't do anything.

    Aside from this problem, if anyone knows, is it possible to downgrade back to v3.15?

    Yes, I believe you can goto 3.15.

    Yes, you can downgrade to 3.15. See my tutorial on PSDowngrade for the PS Jailbreak. Steps are exactly the same...just using a different dongle depending what you're using

    Oh goody, perhaps I could try this out. Just hope my dongle works with it. (It's a PS3break 1.1 but I think I updated it to 1.3 at one point.)

    There is no 1.3 for PS3Break. 1.1 is the version number of the dongle. The firmware for PS3Break has a different number (current is 1.7). Just like PS3Break 1.2 is the new blue dongle but has a firmware of 1.7.

    PS3Break has just released downgrade for 1.1 and 1.2. Downgrade is a different file from the jailbreak.
