I just fixed a RSOD by going into recovery mode and installing a 3.55 NOTHEROS patched PUP, then installing and running rsodfix.gnpdrm.pkg. Fixed it right up, until I tried upgrading to Rogero 4.30 2.05, RSOD again. I'm going to try and downgrade to 3.55. If it works, maybe you can do the same. My model, however, is CECHL.
Here's the theory I read:
- Seems to appear mostly on consoles with Samsung NORS (CECHL**-CECH20**)
- May be caused by an error being thrown while writing to NOR (this is theory)
- Mostly caused by a corrupt area of flash called VTRM
I know that's not your model, but I think it's interesting. Can you swap your harddrive, downgrade to 3.55 NOTHEROS, install and run rsodfix, upgrade to Rogero 4.30, then put your original harddrive back? Or would it still require a format?
Also, does anybody know if you could swap bad memory out? I've got scrap boards and SMD/BGA rework stations.
Update: I couldn't downgrade. Ran into another RSOD on the way down. So I'll probably get a progskeet and some chipquik. There's a thread here saying people have swapped them before. You just need to backup and dump the memory. I'm guessing that as long as recovery menu works, you can downgrade from 4.30 to 3.55 without running into a RSOD.
