It is a clean downgrade.. Through 'Recovery Mode'.. That is how it has always worked..
Cheers mate.. Thought you might like it..
Now I spose I should fix up the REBUG OTHEROS++ PUPS and remove the patch for SS..
Okay. Out of curiosity, is it not a good idea to do a downgrade using a lower version PUP straight from the regular XMB using the QA debug update option? When you say recovery mode, is it the mode where you are shown rebuild database etc and 4-5 other options?
I am just wondering as I always see devs saying install a PUP through recovery, but if this facility is there through QA'ing a PS3 (downgrade in regular XMB), is there any reason not to use it?

No other flags were released, still QA flagging comes in handy all the time.
What other flags are there? Debug I'm guessing but any others?

no downgrading straight from xmb, will error out (no brick or anything) and will return to xmb, it only works from recovery mode (RECOVERY not service mode)
As far as flagging there are others... but people (some) didn't put much effort into searching for them... it was a time that flashers were not as available as they are now, and a brick would kill your machine...
