I just got my customers 2nd ps3 of the day to downgrade from 4.00 and jailbreak.
Evrything went fine, bios was extracted and saved in my PC. Checked with Nor dump checker and no errors.
In the restore step (all switches down), it flashed me an error [[i think it was 10001111
Failed to write PS3 BIOS]]--> not sure though
So i felt its the card, i wiped and tried again.. but when i turned on ps3.. it was bricked.....i get beeping red light on power..huh
Now did the usual tri state soldering and i was able to start the ps3 in flash fun mode and i am some wat happy...
When i put the bios(official)(own) and hit start.. it gives me 10001100..do u suspect something.. or its still saying clip not seated properly...any thoughts... i have tried assembling it all over 3 times.
Note: it never completed the downgrade, its bricked in official 4.00fw
** hopefully the backup bios is not faulty because i double checked with nor dump checker and it had no errors**
