It says in the guide, it is normal to sometimes get a black screen instead of the connect controller screen.
Since you did not see that, I bet you did not read the guide close enough. And are doing something wrong.
Did you cut the power from the switch or pull the plug? Then use the dongle.
The PS3UPDAT.PUP file should be inside PS3/UPDATE
Make sure the pup file is named correctly and in the correct file path.
Or try to format the drive with the Quick box UNCHECKED.
Or try a different flash drive.
Oh trust me i read that dam thing word for word front to back at least 10 times because i knew it was missing something from before, and i have never had a issue before until the TUT was changed.
Thanks anyways i ended up figuring it out myself (not much activity on the forums)
problem is that there is no downgrade process what so ever in the TUT like there used to be, i personally don't see how it can work without have the downgrade.bin file but whatever i made my own instructions to keep that i know wont get changed
And i did get the black screen no hdd activity no wifi activity nothing.
tried writing the patched bios backup and then booting.... nothing tried multiple things and had no result until i brought the downgrade.bin file into it.
Also tried inserting downgrade dongle in multiple times after flashing etc.... no dongle activity until i did downgrade.bin
