program PS3 BIOS.
program from TF.
read 0:bkpps3.bin at 0x00000000 ... OK.
erase PS3 BIOS at 0x00000000 ... OK.
write PS3 BIOS at 0x00000000 ... failed.
Program Nor failed.
i had this the first time right after soldering. the problem was the ugly ******g clip, it simply didn't fit the nor chip after installing like 20 times..
so what helped was massive pressure and ultra massive ducktape -.-"
You could try to dump another bios backup, just to see if your clip is installed well. If you get the 10001100, simply reinstall the clip.
