Check to see if service mode is enabled.
ps3dm_um /dev/ps3dmproxy read_eprom 0x48C07
To exit service mode:
ps3dm_um /dev/ps3dmproxy write_eprom 0x48C07 0xff
The methods are very similar and a service.PKG should be doable.
I have NOT tested this method, just putting it out here for discussion and possible work around. use the information at your own risk. I take no responsibility for what you do!!.
This is the reason why I hate when stuff are not Open source, especially on the homebrew community and on purely technical stuff like that.
PS3JIG is open source, maybe somebody could use that as a reference to create a tiny PKG file that allows such thing, I don;t want to sound greedy but, I doubt it would be THAT tough, it looks like it just a matter or 4 or 5 commands.

Yes, I read that too, but it makes zero sense really. How can this be done in practice?
