now ,are we still in postition to try to have a good bios dump backup ? using progskeet for example , or we lost that chance by writing on flash ?
Does your technician know what he is doing? Why would he just patch the dump and flash it without validating it? It sounds like he is a rookie and is rushing things.
There is still a chance, as long as he hasn't flashed a bios from a different console.
You have to try and get a good dump. Then validate it with this guide
. I wish I could put the clip on for your technician, so you can fix your console.

I never had much success with soldering the wire from tristate to ground. I always use the sbe point on the ribbon.
I know others say it works, but I tried it once and it didn't work. So I always solder the wire from tristate to sbe on e3 ribbon. And it will stay on with switch 1 up.
I like to stick with what works for me.
Note - Take a look at the first page. I have been using Rogero's nor patcher to do the downgrades now. It seems a lot easier. And haven't bricked one yet with it. It seemed that once every 20 times or so, I was having to unbrick and try again, when using the e3_downgrade.bin.
