Working guide on unbricking your ps3 due to this (not guaranteed, however has helped quite a few)
Page 66 I have a guide that may help some of you.
Page 78 Karl0s has a guide that may help using a jb.
Testing more atm, will report back. Far as I know the firmware at this point, may or may not affect the console itself, however is primarily placed on the hdd. malfunctioning unit's after bricking here seem to read from a WIDE variety of problem's on the HDD after a failure, resulting in some very colorful errors (yellow light, ect). This should help quite a few though, and I'll report back with more before long. I'm testing now to pass the 256mb version's (A,B,C,D,ect) on Waki's CFW, very close.
