those flag files have to be opened in hexeditor and put in the corresponding flash regions, eg. in vflash_dump put in 0x04 to backup 4 flash region files. and in vflash_restore put in that same number you backed up, here 0x04 to restore that 4 flash backups.
i have got my first never going rsod on ps3 with this cfw by replacing dev flash files without payload. i wouldn't recommend doing anything on this cfw without active payload. you can even autoload their payload from usb with egea on boot.
too complicated,who mentioned advance.cfg ?
i couldn't understand anything,where is egea file located,vflash dump?you meant dev_flash? 0x04?whats an active payload?
what is this all for anyway, customizing jfw xmb or enabling ps2 games backups? ,could those things be the cause i can't even update to a 4.11 jfw ?
going to try what ps3hen said as he debricked my ps3,but if you think that doing so is going to make my ps3 explode say that clearly :-)
thanks to all
going to replace those files and post results later
