October 21, 2011 // 7:51 pm - A few months back a PlayStation 3 Waninkoko Brick Fix and tutorial were released, and today the Gitbrew Team have released a PS3 OtherOS++ NAND Brick or PUP Updater Error Fix BETA and guide of their own.

Download: PS3 Brick Fix Lv2diag.self / PS3 Brick Fix PS3UPDAT.PUP / PS3 Brick Fix PS3UPDAT.PUP (Mirror)

Below is a brief guide from their site, as follows:

PS3 Beta Brick Fixing

This is a beta tool. It has only be tested on otheros++ nand bricks and some pup updater file errors. This hasn't been 100% tested, though we're looking for people to try it to see what bricks it will actually fix.


1. Put both files into the root directory of a flash drive.
2. Put the dongle into the ps3 while it is off and start it.
3. If the flash drive is activated it can be fixed using this.
4. If it however does not, the only fix for it until a software side is found is a hardware flasher.

Please note this will ONLY work on 3.55 and lower, and in only a small amount of cases.

I believe this won't work for Waninkoko bricks as it has already been discovered that USB does not activate with a Waninkoko brick only the MS PRO Duo slot

I don't think this is for Waninkoko bricks, read the post again but ignore the bit that says "A few months back a PlayStation 3 Waninkoko Brick Fix and tutorial were released"
