To quote, roughly translated: Hello, I've been working on this project about two months now since I've gotten to work as public so that everyone can use, this tutorial is for consoles with 256MB NAND flash does not mean it does not work in 16MB in itself is changed almost the same in those with normal flash, but because even I have my fat 16mb 80GB I have not been able to neither prove nor verified.

Nougat (the phrase I owe to some forero around here that I really liked the expression):

With INFECTUS flash0.bin and we get our nand flash1.bin as in the tutorial to repair bad lukin nands do the same process until we get our dump flashfinal.bin 256MB nand we open this with a simple hex editor and look for this part editor:

"00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 6F FF E0"

You will see that just under a very similar line, I find this data in the offset 000C0020 may vary according to the nand and the party starts here

EVEN replace that line with the file if you use the hxd 1patchcos.bin get in the first 0 of the line -> right click and paste, writing before you have to have an open 1patchcos.bin hxd in hex and copy its contents to can paste.. then we find the second file to patch at hxd we dump on our part:

"00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 40"

And in the same way as the first patched patched this also cojemos 2patchtrvk.bin pack the file and replace the entire contents including the:

"00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 40"

Then we take the option we use reescramble flowrebuilder this dump so we rebuild our flash0.ECC.bin and flash1.ECC.bin and flash the result, when you finish you will notice that the PS3 now has a nice on but black screen, it cojemos our factory jig to put it into service mode and put it in factory, then the typical cojemos lv2diag of yore and the pup you please.

(NOTE: the first pup that metais will stay in the console as the minimum version that you can downgrade then, if you want to lose 3.55 to 3.41 then you will have to put the pup up to 3.41 before 3.55 or 3.55 will remain in that if cost will not rewrite the dump again to downgrade to lower the pup that you put the first time.)

Then you put your factory lv2diag to leave the service and you're

Note: this applies to repair the brick Waninkoko NAND not plates even sem-001 (tested) (and step downgrade )

Here is a guide from dospiedras1973, roughly translated: elotrolado.net/hilo_downgrade-3-7x-para-slim-y-fat-s-con-nor-flash_1659475

PS3 3.7x Downgrade for Slims and Fats with NOR Flash

Hello all, I got it at the end we have a downgrader for slim consoles this time is different than it has done with consoles fat, I've got the two flashers progskeet Teensy++ and Al nougat!

We need:


First dumped our NOR flash, the file must accurately measure "16,777,216 bytes" neither more nor less. Draw out several to be absolutely sure of what you do.. cojemos the dump "example josejuan.bin" and we have to introduce it in a file flowrebuilder to make it readable (bytereverse) the option is called bytereverse dump and extract rules. what we do and we will create a file but the extension ends in. bin.REV

Open it with the hxd and took our personal data to the console EID, BOOTLOADER, CSID and METLDR no need to put any more. take them out as follows:

Choose for example in this case to stick our METLDR prepatched to downgrade the image attached to this tutorial

Inside the folder where we put the flowrebuilder. rev also has created another folder called "nombredeldump.EXT" then there are our personal archives of our console and we need to introduce them to catch some pre-patched image that I have since opened the hxd and open the file and metldr downgrade.bin is inside the folder asecure_loader.

Choose the tab on the hxd metldr and copy the entire contents into HEX and enter the downgrade.bin and press control + 820 g write position is that of METLDR. right-click on the first line of position 820 to give to "stick type" and so the same way we introduce others to enter the files are:

  • METLDR: Position "820" size "EDE0" (Note: Correction by dospiedras1973: Correct Offset "810" size "E960")
  • BOOTLOADER_0 Position "FC0000" size "40000"
  • EID: Position "2F000" size "10000"
  • CISD: Position "3F000" size "800"

Then we take the downgrade.bin with saved changes and we put in the option flowrebuilder bytereverse dump and extract rules PROGRAM THIS TIME WE WILL GIVE AN ERROR but is a normal error, if error occurs is that okay done and you create a file named downgrade.bin.REV will be the file you have to enter in the console "flash"

If all went well to finish writing you kindle the console and will press the button or English ps push button NO NOTHING PULSE IS apagais the console and put it in factory service mode once this need to put the correct file system for 3.55 jaicrab with lv2diag of cfw without reader and a special:


Kindle the console with the stick with these two files on the usb device into the far right of the console and shut down one to 10 / 15 minutes, kindle the console without any usb connected to verify that you correctly leads to xmb If all went well apagais the console and you put your lv2diag FILE2 of this pack: http://www.mediafire.com/?b07qrb96iz99ibb

The console will turn on and 20 seconds will turn itself off and CONGRATULATIONS you have your console in functional kmeaw cfw 3.55 100%

you not need hex edit anymore... and "If at any time during the downgrade DISPLAY RED (RSOD) STOP PROCESS IMMEDIATELY I WILL RELEASE A FIX SOON" Please be patient

I updated entire patch method with new v2 with some fixes, now be compatible with all consoles except 2504b DATECODE 1B and 3000 consoles. Write a new method consisting of 6 patches, this time we will use to edit the dump hxd original of your PS3 (make backup)

Steps:

First check if our standards Dump bytereversed, to start patching the original dump.bin file we must first ensure that the beginning of the flash at offset 200 is readable "IFI" if instead you see "FI.I "Your rules need to patch it bytereverse before (a and go back to him to put it in bytereverse the console to be read again" FI.I "when we patched the files and offset's a patch are these

Easy, normal and cojemos the patch1 for example, copy content and paste it patch1 0C0010 writing and so the rest (the file size does not vary after the stripe)

The rest of the downgrade is the same as before, factory mode, and pup jaicrab lv2diag nochecks.pup of the previous release.

Oh wow, this is good news. I was thinking you needed a previous dump of your 3.5 firmware, but if not and essentially any 3.7 can perform the downgrade, that's great news.

That's awesome News ! Hope to see more proofs about it or maybe a update/downgrade *.PUP in the future.

But great process, indeed.
