(i think) it was 5.00 m33 and it took me awhile to find that firmware online still but be careful because i read that it might mess up your psp but i had no problem with it at all and the tut for the jig app is this right here: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-ha...tml#post363368
Thanks, I tried that but still can't get any activity from PS3Jig after the USB driver started message. At least the PSP never bricked with me bouncing around between 5.00, 5.50, 6.20, and 6.60, but the PS3 is still sad and dead.
i think that you might have to get different versions of FW for the psp i know it was a FW that only a PHAT psp was able to go safely and you might have to try a different version of the downgrade files or was it the Lv2diag.self file... (i forgot it was one of those i couldn't get working with ps3jig) for a while and then after i tried everything the last one i tried worked (i even tried it on a 1.0 Phat downgraded psp lol)
Well, out of the four PSP FW versions I tried already, the only one that wouldn't even start PS3Jig and just gave me a black screen instead was 6.20. All of the others started the program normally.
After my last post, I was able to briefly test both the fat PSP running PSPJig and the E3 card reader on another PS3 that boots normally. The E3 turned blue and successfully put the console into factory mode. After trying two different USB drives, I was able to get the system back out of factory mode.
When I ran PSPJig to put the PS3 into factory mode again, the challenge-response sequence appeared on the PSP screen, but the PS3 wouldn't go back into factory mode even after several attempts. I didn't get a chance to try the E3 again yet, I assumed it would work.
Back on the PS3 with the five double-beeps, I tried the E3 card reader again and it still didn't work. I also put in the USB drive with the "get out of factory mode" program that worked in the normal system in case the broken one was already in factory mode from the previous owner, but the drive never powered up before the beeping began so it made no difference.
Scouring around every forum post I can find, there are quite a few other people who have run into the same problem over the years, but there hasn't ever been an explanation and the only suggested solution is flashing. Hopefully someone has unraveled this mystery by now though and they'll wander into this thread.

I have a CECHA01 and a CECHL01. Which one is preferred by fellow modders to mod. Then, which is a better mod, E3, or ProgSKEET? I've read a lot on each one, and I'm not sure which way I want to go. Just looking for opinions to what others prefer and or done.
i think progskeet is better because i already use it for almost a year, only once have cause a problem because my own mistake.
