    The RSX rom version is B07 Manufacture date is January 2009. Any safe way to tell if the minimum is 1.60 or 2.30?

    What does it say in vsh in the update menu? It should display a minimum version. If it's "1.00" that probably means you can really go as low as 1.60, if it's 2.30 you know your answer.

    It says 1.00, I just don’t want to blow up a $1400 kit to find out. They didn’t enforce the 1.60 limit after all

    If it's rsx rom b07, downgrading below 1.60 (except on 100.004, which is a version of 1.00 crafted for rsx rom b07 machines), you will brick.

    I’m was aware of the brick issue of B07 but was not aware of the 100.004 thing, was that leaked?

    Don't update to any firmware below 1.60 though or you will brick, even from that special 1.00 firmware
