Why does my Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim (500GB) only display the option to install/download version 4.66 or later - there does not appear to any option to download an earlier firmware than this.

I have already tried restarting it but I'm only given the option to install/download version 4.66 or later. What's the problem? Why are earlier versions not available?

  • you would have to factory reset the playstation and download a custom version of the firmware. You will not be able to play most games online after doing this, why do you want to rollback? Is it to "jailbreak" the playstation by any chance. – Panomosh Mar 30 '15 at 13:11

Sony does not allow downgrading firmware versions, you can only install the newest version because that is all they offer.
