After soldering everything for unbrick, instead of dumping my OFW to go back to 4.31 can i just dump the modified FW so i am on CFW 3.55 after repairing ?
u can leave the tristate to SBE wire after unbricking using flashfun mode...only flip the first switch back to "PS3" and only when using tristate to any GND point on the MB, then after unbrick u must remove the wire for it to boot again.
"dump the modified FW"
what u mean with that, u have used a "patched OFW dump" with all switches down? then going by freakalhemist..he unbricked restoring the patched dump 2x after eachother, see i never had a brick like this so in a way i'm guessing there.
important is after fixing the tristate wire, that u REDUMP first making sure the e3clip is in place cuse it get's u nowhere...this is so many times posted it's getting silly for us u know
don't take any offense in it but it's really important and saves alot of unbrick time later on as really i had only one brick..the first...fixed it..and then told myself..this sucker isn't gonna play with my balls...it's just we doing things to fast...the clipping of the e3flasher is most important..after that unbricking should be easy....and always try using the DUMP from wich u bricked on first.
so i would try flashing the OFW dump first, if it doesn't boot after that, the ROS0/1(firmware coreos on norflash) is corrupt and get's overwritten anyways..so first try OFW dump, otherwise use a prepatched 355coreos dump, see above note how the other guy fixed it(= 2x restoring patched dump)
if someone can confirm would be great, always do things at ur own risk, not that i'm talking out of my ass here but each brick well they are not the same but with a valid dump&100% fitted e3 unbrick should work always, then again there are many unbrick guides/ways so i can't say for sure...maybe
or someone can jump in on this
