First off I'm using a Limited E3 Flasher on a 3.73 Fat PS3 (CECHH). I've successfully installed the clip and taken 3 lots of backup files which all seemed to finish fine. The filesize is correct and I've used the E3 Dump validity checker which said it was valid (could be false positive) and I've been following the guide here: http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Validating_flash_dumps
and I don't think much is wrong?
I'm completely inexperienced and would like a second opinion of the file before I go bricking my family's ps3.
Thanks so much for the help. I've already confirmed that this file is identical to the other 9 backup files.
Also can someone enlighten me on exactly what the restore process is achieving? Am I able to skip this process and go on to the Downgrade_E3.bin step. I'm not seeing the process in this guide: http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=33989
It is however in the official guide from the creators.
Are these NOR backups I'm trying to verify needed on my SD card when the Downgrade_E3.bin is being used? I'm not sure.
