This is the link for 4.80 reverter. I used it and it works perfectly fine.

Thanks @babu2002 I added it to the OP now, and below are the details from Prince K for those interested:

GET YOUR PS3 OFF 4.80 DEMO MODE

Link to get your PS3 OFF 4.80 DEMO MODE: To+go+normal+4.80+by+baba0rum.rar (196.58 MB)

V.2 This one is already done for you just put it in your FAT 32 USB: PS3UPDAT.PUP (196.6 MB)

The 4.80 demo/kiosk firmware reverter is located in the post right above yours, once you download it follow the guide HERE starting with 'How to update via USB stick' and you should end up with a fully functioning retail 4.80 PS3 console to play online.

Good luck! :cool:

Welcome @TheHSN! The 4.80 Reverter is for those who are on 4.80 Shop Firmware (also known as Demo or 'SEX' Firmware) and don't want to keep entering the unlock code to use it.

If you are on 4.80 OFW (retail) then the error you received sounds about right as it won't revert Retail Firmware back to itself. ;)

So right now your PS3 is on 4.80 Demo mode, and you tried both of these links and it doesn't bring you back to 4.80 OFW (non-Demo) mode?

What happens when you try running them on the PS3 console?

Error 80029C55 means the following according to Sony and wikis:

80029C55 PS3 Error Code

0x80029c55 - Error occurred while accessing storage media.

The PS3 system is unable to read the system software update file on a game disc or an external media device, such as a USB drive or a Memory Stick Duo.
  • If updating using a game disc, make sure the disc is clean and free of scratches. If the disc has deep or excessive scratches, it may need to be replaced.
  • If updating using external media, download the system software update file again or try another external media device.
That said, did you name it correctly and place it in the correct path (/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP) on your USB stick?
