What cfw did you put him when you originally downgraded?
if its one where the lv1 check is removed then thats why it worked the first time.
Since you still have his original ps3 dumps, then your going to have to reatch the progskeet and dehash his system.

Anyway, now when u turn it on you get no video/audio & it stays on for aboout 8 seconds, LED goes yellow then beeps 3 times & flashes red until you press the power button again, to go to solid red.
I only now read about the de-hash which I dont think I did during the downgrade(months ago), so I',m guessing this is why its now bricked/semi-bricked? so kinda feel responsible for the brick.
What is the best course of action to un-brick the ps3? I'm hoping not having to resolder the progskeet & reflash. Was hoping for a USB method if it exists at all.I also have backups of his NOR/downgrade.bin if that helps.
BTW, I have tried to get it into FSM via dongle but the ps3 just shuts down as mentioned above.
Appreciate any help.
