and u have made e3 guides? u should know ur way..edit... j/k alright yeah bad jokes
i dont want u to do anything..it's ur decision...the patched dump atleast is properly patched with 355 ready for downgrade/fixing a ps3 IF this dump is fromt hat PS3 and IF the PS3 isn't borked/hdd etc broke
checking firmware v in coreos can be done may ways, 1 of them is extract the dump, go into each ros folder and open "sdk_version" with notepad....
goodluck on fix
