Unbricking a Perma-Brick Is Now Possible!
Tutorial soon to fallow. Contribute to make it a great one.
Alright PS3Hax Community. I got a project I'm working on and am in need of your assistance.
The pictures provided below are of my original dump (obviously missing the bootldr) and of my redump that I'm hoping still has my bootldr still intact.
My goal is to (if its still on my NOR and hopefully in my redump) take the bootldr from my redump and add it into a copy of my (faulty) original dump. And thus making it a proper NOR dump... Hopefully.
If this ends up working for me it would be a great contribution to those who are also in this predicament.
So the information I need, from whoever can help, are:
1. Someone to verify from the photos (or files hosted) that a retrievable bootldr is on my redump.
2. Someone to tell me where the BOOTLDR starts (my assumption is 00FC0002) and ends.
3. And lastly when I recompile it. For someone to double check my Compiled Dump to verify its possibility in working.

I have a CECH2001b with a DYN-001 mobo.
I bricked my PS3 when I was installing the patch to downgrade.
I had re-installed the clip and soldered nor translate so my PS3 would stop turning itself off, and hopefully the clip was on correctly enough to grab what I missed last time.
If you have any questions please post. Or if you want; PM.

I should have said something before finishing the post.
The reason why I'm so hopeful that this might work is because of baileyscream's TUT.
The "Check your Dump" section shows that (With my DYN-001 Mobo) The bootldr will start with 2f 3b and the same at its other section.
Which my redump has.
I would still like the input from others on how to continue from here (too worried to just do it without some support and/or input).
