Dark_AleX with yet another kick to Sony’s jimmy… That’s right, read ‘em and weep — a generic 2.71 downgrader!
What differentiates this downgrader from the others? Well, if you use Homebrew Enabler (Revision C) and FW 2.71 you’re now able to downgrade to any firmware version you see fit: 1.50-2.60. And, better yet! TA-082 owners can easily downgrade/upgrade between firmware 2.50 and 2.71. I also won’t fail to mention FW dumps are unnecessary; only the EBOOT.PBP update is required.
From the Readme.txt:
This tool enables a 2.71 running HEN C to downgrade to any version from 1.50-2.70 or to reflash the own 2.71.
Theoretically, TA-082 users could downgrade to 2.70/2.60/2.50.
This downgrader is safer, faster, and a lot easier to use than the previous downgraders. It also makes a clean firmware install, since this time there is a format of flash0 (just like sce updaters do).
WARNING TA-082 users: DO NOT attempt downgrading below 2.50. Use at your own risk!
