OK, I have managed to install the e3 flasher, and my dumps seem valid (still awaiting confirmation). I am on 4.31 OFW.
Tomorrow I will try to downgrade and install a CFW. I still want to have a half dual boot setup. Right now I have 2 HDDS, the two of em with 4.31 OFW. I'm looking for guidance on how to achieve this with as low chance of bricking as possible.
I've been doing alot of reading to try to figure this out, one post that attracted my attention is this one

and for the semi dual boot you must patch the backup of your CFW 3.55 as in the tut explain!
One last question, in playerkp420's tutorial we need to patch our OFW NOR dump using Rogero's PS3 Nor Dump Patcher but there's no such thing in baileyscream's. What does the NOR Dump patch do exactly, how is it useful and what is the difference between both tutorials?
Thank you very much
