    [Answered] infectus, will this work?

    i have an infectus that im considering on soldering up to my ps3 demo unit with fw 1.93. i want to dump this firmware then get a retail firmware and write it to both flashes. will the ps3 boot?
    Best Answer - Posted by PS4 News:

    I'm not sure if Infectus works on Demo units, however, what I do know is for Retail PS3 units it will only allow you to dump and flash the Firmware from the same console... so you couldn't take one from a friend's and flash it to yours.

    it will completely mess up your ps3. it will write fine.

    the firmware marries its self to the board in the ps3 i believe.. each board has a unique serial/hash

    Kinda like the 360 firmware then? I saw a tut for unbanning the 360 that involved changing the 360 ID through changing the firmware of the console.

    yes, you are essentially changing the console serial # and id to one thats not banned on XBL
