I believe you will need your E3 flasher in order to fix your problem.
I have never seen a RSOD that will not enter recovery menu. He must be doing it wrong.
With the ps3 on:
1. Hold power until the ps3 shuts off.
2. Hold power til it turns on and shuts off again.
3. Hold power until after you hear a beep then double beep.
BTW - Recovery menu and factory service mode are not the same. A RSOD PS3 will enter recovery menu.
And since it was the spoofer that caused it, there is no reason to use RSOD fix. Installing OFW 3.55 from recovery menu will fix the problem.
Also the nootheros pup is not recommended and can make the situation worse.
