However the B*****dious problem lies in creating the dump.
Reason being it gives me this code
1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 Failed to initialize PS3 BIOS Check pads / clip at PS3 board check may not be properly seated.
Now i have opened my ps3 it's lying in front of me naked this piece of s*** with the e3 attached to. anyway having redone the clip about 2 times it's still giving the same crap error code. I can play games with BD fine, just not letting do a damn dump
Anyone else had the same problem, any solution should I throw e3 flasher out of the window or should I hard solder it on?
any help much appreciated
have a really close look and see if there are any compoments on the board that are touching or preventing the clip from sitting flush.
if there are any touching or under the clip then the clip needs these areas carefully scraping or file the areas on the clip so it will sit flush
you also need to apply presher to the clip ie with a clamp (plastic quick clamp from a pound / dollar shop or diy shop) then try again
