Yes, there are.

Also I had a few bad clips on ebay. Looked nearly like the original one, but broke after 3 applications.

Thank you!

Just an update, still getting an error but ive made some progress.

Well ive managed to install the Rogero 4.55 CFW and i get the little Rogero Boot logo on startup so im assuming its "Jailbroken".

However now when i go to install the packages shown under the ps3 store i get this "An error occured during the install operation. (8002AE32)". And also "an error occured during the start operation" when opening the one directly above it titled */app_home/PS3_GAME/

Any ideas on what i might be doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My console model is: CECH 2001A

Install images after backing up with E3 Flasher and installing CFW are attached...

Thank you!

Hi, i have a ps3 model CECH-2001A on 4.55, im trying to go through the downgrade process this is my first time working with a non 360 console so its all new to me.

Hardware: E3 Flasher w/o esata station.

Issue: When i set all switches down except for the 3rd switch it goes through the process i believe 3 times then starts flashing left to right which as far as i can tell is supposed to be a success. When i go to put the SD card in my pc the sd card is blank?, i have tried multiple cards from 2gbs to 4gb cards and all have the same end result.

I did notice that after doing the backup, and power off the ps3 then settings all switches down except for the 6th switch for unlock, then it goes to the 2nd led staying lit, which as far as i can tell is from the sd card not being seated properly, i can assure you it is.

Can anybody please offer some kind of advice here? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!
