the Dump extraction should've been done without any errors, otherwise it may lead you to a permanent brick.
after extracting you should have the following output: bkps3.swap.bin and bkps3.swap.ext
if you take the first dump (that you sent to playerkp420 in this thread) and the dump you made after that was patched and flashed back.
dont byte reverse them.
open them both in hxd
go to statistics then compaire
keep pressing f6 untill you get to offset 40010
you should get CS.E on both but you get SCE on the new dump
you will see the same thing at offset:
at offset C0010
the ROS0 the whole lot of this is byte revesed in the new dump but the correct way round in the origional
this new dump is half byte reversed
can you comfirm
also you mention an additional SCE headder in the dump
i have gon over the origional all day but i fail to find it (even searching for the txt string) can you give me the offset please.
and i dont suppose you have a dump from a 3.56 console do you?
i have been putting together a list of what each firmware (based on the sdk_version in both ROS0 + ROS1 folders in NOR dumps) but i havent had a 3.56 one yet (apart from this)
i should mention there is alot more byte reversed sections in the new dump but i have just mentioned a small amount as just this is enough for the ps3 to not boot
