    So, making a long story short...

    I had this old laptop laying around with a 500GB HDD, while my PS3 HDD was around 200GB...
    I switched the hard drives around....

    Now let's talk about 4.83 if you accidently upgraded...
    - In a way would it be technically possible to take out the HDD of your PS3, put it in a laptop
    - Then start the laptop with a bootable HIREN Boot CD USB pen drive...
    - Reformat the PS3 HDD in the laptop with the tools in HIREN boot CD...
    - Then make a USB Pendrive with x:\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP
    - Put the hard drive back in the PS3, boot it up, and it says no firmware found it installs the 4.82 firmware again?

    I know it seems kinda a hassle, you loose everything on the HDD... but with the 4.83 update you lost it anyway...
    But would it do the trick reverting back this way to 4.82?

    If your devflash already has the 4.83 files on it,its too late.The devflash is basicly where your consoles motherboard stores the firmware files on the ps3's os.

    Also, there is no need to use HIREN Boot CD nor any other tool in order to format a HDD used by a PS3, you can just run Windows install from scratch, and Windows setup will format it for you.

    Just take in mind that you cannot access a PS3 HDD just connecting it to a computer, you will need several tools and keys.

    I know this has nothing do with what you just said but im new to ps3 jailbreaking and I updated to 4.8.3 is it possible to jailbreak ps3 to cfw 4.8.2 and then spoof it 4.8.3? I have never jailbroken my ps3 before and i decided to do it when I get a usb and look at a few youtube videos on how to do it.

    Mabe a e3 flasher from a hardmod if you have the correct model.If it isnt a cfw model then you might be able to install han once you downgrade with the e3 flasher to 4.82.

    In otherwords you need to hardmod if your on 4.83.

    Go look on youtube or google.A e3 flasher requires you to strip the console apart and mabe solder.

    You could hardmod i think to get back to 4.82,either that or you wait for 4.83 to be exploited.

    How TF does anyone ACCIDENTLY UPDATE? Everywhere i see accidentally update lol.

    anyway all you can do is wait but I dont think anyone will bother. They need to find new kexploit and thats not easy or worth it.

    You could get games injected from a CFW ps3 (DTU method) for the time being; those would still work as they are not dependant on exploits.

    He said NON CFW COMPATIBLE PS3. So basically that means no downgrade. Only HAN or injection via CFW DTU is possible on those consoles.

    I am getting a jailbroken console that was ACCIDENTALLY UPDATED ( :/ ) to 4.83. So i will try E3 flasher on it to downgrade to 3.55.

    On the flash chip/s, (nands or nor), also the syscon knows what version you are on, I think also the cpu has a version tag on the key but is overwritten if syscon is flagged to allow downgrade on dech system.

    To Make clear: anyone who has upgraded to 4.83 using either a Later SLIM console or SUPERSLIM using HAN: there is no going back. Till a 'new' xploit can be found. To Users who upgraded to 4.83 on ALL FATS and EARLIER SLIMS: you just need to hardware flash to 4.82 and do the usual procedure to CFW or HAN that you had before and use SEN Enabler to Spoof to 4.83!
