PS3 RSOD - Red Screen of Death Fix is Now Available

Sponsored Links
165w ago - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developers RobS and An0nym0us have made available a PS3 RSOD (Red Screen of Death) fix for those experiencing the issue on Sony's current-gen entertainment system and gaming console.

Download: PS3 RSOD - Red Screen of Death Fix (NORSOD NOTHEROS Patched PUP) / 355-NOTHEROS-RSOD.rar (Mirror) / PS3 RSOD - Red Screen of Death Fix (GAMEOS RSOD FIX)

Below are further details via PS3 Dev Wiki: RSOD Fix

The RSOD Fix - Observations about RSOD:

Seems to appear mostly on consoles with Samsung NORS (CECHLxx-CECH20xx) May be caused by an error being thrown while writing to NOR (this is theory) Mostly caused by a corrupt area of flash called VTRM

The original RSOD "fix" was actually a CFW patch to bypass the RSOD. basic_plugins.sprx was modified to ignore the error condition to allow the console to boot. While this worked, certain things like trophies still didn't work correctly.

The actual RSOD fix occurs by the VTRM area on flash being rewritten. The ability to do this is already built into the firmware, it just needs to be called.

Steps from GameOS:

1) Install the NORSOD patched PUP so that you can boot.

2) Install the rsodfix.gnpdrm.pkg package, and run it from XMB (REDACTED)

3) Run rsodfix.

4) Reboot and install whatever firmware you want
