    Arrow (UPDATED)How to downgrade from Rogero CFW 4.30/4.21 to CFW 3.55

    And now since Rogero released his all in one awesome 4.30 CFW, he suggests to downgrade to 3.55 then upgrade to CFW 4.30 if you're on CFW 4.21... Or if you just wanna downgrade.
    This is his new tutorial:
    - Downgrading back to 3.55 is always possible using the following steps :
    - Download the Downgrader PUP ---> Downgrader PUP mirror ---> Downgrader PUP
    Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
    - Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
    - While on Rogero CFW4.30, go to System Update from XMB and install the Downgrader PUP.
    - After the Downgrader PUP installs you'll be on a hybrid CFW3.55 that will still shows ver4.21/4.30 from system settings.
    - Enable QA flag by following these steps:

    1- Download the Rebug QA_Toggle package from here ---> toggle_qa.pkg
    2- Put the "toggle_qa.pkg" on USB and Install it on the PS3.
    3- Run the "Rebug Toggle QA" from XMB, the screen will go Black and you will see HDD Led activity then if all went fine you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and the PS3 will Restart back to XMB.
    4- If you want to make sure QA flag was set, go to "Network Settings" then apply the following key combo (all at the same time):

    L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down

    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.

    - Now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" ---> Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
    - Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
    - Once you're back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install any CFW 3.55/4.21/4.30.

    Useful Hint: you can simply use CondorStrike's Updater package from XMB to enter Recovery Menu directly from XMB without going through several restart/shutdown sequences. --> Condor Updater v2.0

    HEY GUYS!! This is how to downgrade from the new Rogero CFW back to Rogero 3.55 CFW 3.7!

    - Downgrading back to 3.55 is always possible using the following steps :
    - Download the 4.25 downgrader PUP ---> 4.25 Downgrader Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
    - Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
    - While on Rogero CFW4.21, go to System Update from XMB and install the 4.25 downgrader CFW.
    - Once installed, now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" ---> Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
    - Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
    - Once the install is finished, you're now back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 (from here it's better to dehash again before installing any other OFW/CFW 3.55)

    dehashing helps that when you upgrade your ps3, and the CFW fails to install, you dont end up at a higher firmware.

    need help!!

    i download the downgrader and followed the procedure of using the system update via XMB...however, when my ps3 restarted and checked on the firmware, it is still 4.21. i tried to install the 3.55 CFW via recovery mode but it won't allow to install since it needs 4.40 or higher...

    what should i do? thanks for any help
