I live in canada :S, i will try to do it myself anyway, thanks tho. Learned by my mistake, once i unbrick im good to go. i will make 3 dump compare 3 dump with my good one with the hex editor to see if they are valid and try again.

If you can't find a friend or family member that knows how to solder....
I can unbrick and downgrade your console for you. Take a look at my reviews in my downgrade service thread below.
I wiill try again usng transparent tape nstead of electrical tape.

I checked some video on you tube and i don<t feel comfortable with soldering yet, i will try solderless and if it doesnt work, i will have to practice my solder ...

Then i started watching videos and practice on the burned Mobo, after a year now i use only soldering option because it is more reliable. but need practice a lot to understand how it works
Make sure to use Solder iron not more that 30 Wat (i have 20 Wat Solder iron) and buy a good one with a fine tip
0.6 mm solder wires
Flux will help a lot
Ground points need more heat to attach the solder to it
Also, is it possible that i got a YLOD that happend by coincidence at the same time i was flashing ? I didn't replace the thermal paste yet, was waiting after im done downgrading when i will take off the E3 flasher and rebuild my PS3. PS3 did not shut down itself tho but just wondering if it could be possible..
