Does this mean, if you have a NOR PS3, and you have QA Flagged, it will bypass syscon checks during DEX <-> CEX?
That makes sense.
I didn't brick going from DEX to CEX. But what I did was enter factory service mode on DEX 4.20. I was stuck in FSM and could not install the downgrader pup.
So I flashed my original OFW 4.21 backup, I had from before I downgraded with e3 flasher. Then downgraded.
Funny thing is when I went to dehash, the Qa way. The Qa flag was already toggled on.
I thought it was quite strange. Since I had flashed my original backup, from when I was on OFW 4.21. I just went ahead and finish the dehash, then converted to DEX again.
Is the Qa flag not stored on the nor flash?
