i would first try to get the red power light back on (power on the board)
if the nor / nand has no firmware on it then the light will still come on so dont worry about that part for now.
the ps3 sends in this case +5V (i think it's 3,3V, but devwiki says 5V) to pin 1 if you press the power button or controller to startup the 12V.
the system was bricked and the flasher was attached when he tried to restore power to the mobo.
what if the flasher was not connected properly...
and the bios chip which holds the boot up procedure i think, because power button, leds, blutooth, fan are coming from this chip.
can the bios be damaged from installing firmware? , because if that chip don't start up properly then none works.

what i don't get is since pin 2 and 3 should be ground, that they are not visually connected, i don't have a board like that so i can't test anything, on my 60GB ps3 both grounds are connected.
