I merged it into the ongoing E3 discussion thread since it revolved around one of their products, as this is where we keep / archive all of the related E3 topics.

If you want to start a new help thread you can when your ribbon arrives though.

So I just opened up my PS3 and sanded down the part of the clip that's close to a resistor on the board (even though it wasn't touching it), cleaned up the clip with some alcohol, added a rubber piece on top, a penny, and another rubber piece and then I noticed that the ribbon had a small tear in it.

I just ordered a new ribbon from eBay. Hopefully it gets here in less than 2 weeks unlike the E3 flasher kit which took 2 months!

As for the log file, it doesn't mention any errors. Everything is OK on it.

BTW, I tried adding pressure with my hands to make some backups before I took apart the PS3 and this time the dumps had 38 dangers instead of 42.

Um, what happened to my thread?

There should be a log file also recorded on the Microsd card. You could send that txt file to racer as well.

You have determination. I remember your post now. But yeah you need verified dumps before flashing back, so do as said above.

Misiozol is right. You need to get a valid dump from the E3 flasher. I know you say that you have enough pressure it sounds like you need to have more pressure applied. When you are making the dump you can apply even pressure with the clips with your fingers.

Please try this again and then run the verifier to make sure you get all good and no error. I used a Sd card plastic piece from a laptop and just applied pressure with that and worked on the third dump.

PM racer and you can also have him verify your dumps for you. Good luck and post back your results.

Wrong , it will produce bad dump as not all addresses will be read !! Not much of options there , either you doing something wrong while dumping flash or your E3 if faulty (inner soldering) and makes bad dumps , be sides e3 is not best option in flashers but definitively cheapest inc. clip , if you have some soldering skills would look for teensy2.0++.

Okay so what are my next steps? I'm sure the clip is making contact with the nor chip otherwise it wouldn't even produce a dump, correct? What should I do?
