Since I have no NAND backups, what if I just erase my NANDs and then flash it with the 3.60 OFW that is here in the downloads section? Will that work instead? I shouldn't get a perma-brick. How do I erase my NANDs and then re-flash it? Anyone know? Step-by-step guide would be helpful so it can be done right, that's all.
infinitie if you do that it will kill the ps3 and NO ONE can fix it because the nand/nor is different on all consoles and it has infomation about the fw but it is not the fw. read up on it before you do ANYTHING because you will basically mess it up and it will be a actuall BRICK
ok, cool thanks man.
Erasing your NANDs without backing up, or at least attempting to backup is plain silly - YOU WILL END UP WITH AN EXPENSIVE DOOR-STOP!!!
If you have a Progskeet and the no-solder slips, what's stopping you from doing this?
first of all, very nice tutorial. Thanks for that. I've tried this tutorial on a cechg04 with 4.00 firmware. But it doesn't work. I only get an Ylod. Did anybody of you tried this with firmware 4.00?
Or did anybody have another Tutorial for 4.00?
Downgrading the 4.00 firmware is the same as downgrading 3.6x & 3.7x (with the NOR consoles)
There are 3 patches for the NAND consoles - 3.41 COS patch, 3.55 COS patch & TRVK patch - have you tried all 3 combinations?
Are you sure you have a 100% clean dump? Does flowrebuilder extract your NAND filesystem without errors?
I've tried the combinations. Everytime Ylod. When i flash back my original dumps, then the ps3 works fine. So, the dumps aren't the problem.
But maybe i make a mistake somewhere. I will try it again. Good to know that it works with 4.00. Because i wasn't sure.
thx, and when it won't work, i will write it here
flowrebuilder said that:
nand 1 = 5 bad blocks
nand 2 = 1 bad block
but the dumps working fine
Open 355patchCOS.bin, select all - copy
Open your interleaved 256Mb dump - go to offset C0020 - click 'edit' - then 'paste write'
Save it as 256mod.bin, de-interleave then flash NAND 1 & 2 with the new files it creates.
hi, have done like the tut with skeet dump, now not shure if the dumps NAND 0 & 1 are ok? FlowRebuilder says ok!
how can it checked 100%, before patching it?
