PS3 Bad Memory flash Bricked Fix
Updated my 40gb cechg01 from 2.76 to 3.40 and it stopped installing at 65% it shut down now it wont boot xmb only Safe mode and i can't really do anything in it. i do restore ps3 it says "Hard Drive Could Not Be Accessed" i have tried 3 different hard drives at this point i am more than certain that it is the onboard nand flash and it needs to be re flashed. anyone know a way of going about this? i could really use the help i don't have the money to send it in for repairs! thankz

The Infectus Mod is the only way to date for swapping your PS3 NAND, however, you must have installed it beforehand and backed up your PS3's flash... as each is unique to the PlayStation 3 console, so someone else's would be of no use unfortunately.
The other issue with the Infectus is it only worked on older PS3 Firmware versions up to around 2.20 so in your case that wouldn't help.
You could try a PS3 Hard Reset or using the Restore function before sending it in:

What do you mean by "Safe mode"? Is it the recovery menu?

Mine did this - Its a brick so I bought one with a faulty lazer works well... after repair.

In another words - bless Sony for the gift of "optional" FW updates.
