    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.

    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.
