After that i tired to power on my ps3 it just keep going on for a bit then turn off.
I got my nor dump (valid)
what should i do? if i need to reflash the dump do i need to solder or not?
I read somewhere that the ps3 need step 1 file.
please help me. i failed at 1 ps3 already don't want to fail my friends either
you need to solder 1 wire from nor tristate to sbe on ribbon cable to keep the ps3 on and flash your original dump back in flash fun mode(1st switch down rest up)

if you use search you will find good guides in downgrade and flashing forums to unbrick your console. Did you try to turn ps3 on with normal usb in right port with the correct files on? Who's guide are you following
