Take your original unpatched bios from when you where on the updated firmware and put them on your sd card and put them in the flasher. Make sure they are named bkpps3.bin . Then put switch 1 up and turn the console on. Then after a few seconds hit start on the flasher. Let the lights all light up. After they are back to flashing alternatively, then leave the console on. Take the sd card out and put it in the computer and put the e3downgrade.bin on the sd card with your bios. Leave bios on there. Then put it back into the flasher and put switch 6 up and 1 down. Then hit reset on the flasher. It is the red button underneath the sata input. Once the blue lights come back on hit start. Wait until the blue lights light up one by one until the alternate again. Then turn off the console by holding the power button down. Then turn it back on, and wait for a few seconds. The turn it off by pulling power or switching the switch. Then put in the fsm dongle and do the power eject. After it shuts off, put the USB with the lvl2 diag from step 1 folder and rogero.pup into right USB port and turn the console on. After it shuts off put the lvl2 step 2 on USB and put in right USB port and turn the console on. After it shuts off, turn the console back on with nothing in the USB ports and it should be fixed.
I do everythin with success, but when i try to use the fsm dongle they dont start, my usb is dead. So i remove the ribbon cable of E3 flasher motherboard. The dongle start, but dont do the service, the PS3 shutdown before the blue light of the dongle show up.
what i can do ?
