and finally some info/fixes u can try for the HDD no activity = NO BRICK!
ignore the "dual boot" as that is not the case on ur end..anyway it shows some options u can try to get it running again
Blackscreen with no hdd activity and only hard reset possible (no brick)
remove clip and try again
try getting into FSM with a faster power/eject combo
if you manually patched, check if you did not patch the byte-reversed copy
attempt flashfun downgrade
resolder SBCE -> A / cut A/B properly (dual boot)
restrip contacts on the backside of the E3 Flasher (they must not touch the metal casing) they have to be isolated very good .. they are very sensitive and cause a lot of errors
if the E3 flasher is not connected, also ALWAYS disconnect the clip otherwise blackscreen because of A/B Cut .. (dual boot)
In case your usb ports are still working:
3.55 ONLY: use the rsod/brickfix lv2diag in Service Mode (helped my system a lot .. it booted to blackscreen 8/10 times; after using lv2diag 2/10 times)
if using TBv2 please note, that instead of proper security they used loops to protect their product; try reinstalling the FW via recovery mode
also dont use custom boot logos with TBv2 !!
Reinstall a downgrader prepatched FW
if you have no success with the methods from above solder Tri/SBE and reflash a valid backup via flash fun mode (100000)
my ps3 base is under 3.55 i checked with minimum firmware.
true what you said. i must reflash with bad valid. but i somehow got a god dump after i solder and dumped through flashfun ?
i tried to reflash the good dump but the ps3 start on infinity no hdd activity neither the usb port works.
my ffh s 9.34 where i read it should be around 10.42+ or else everything is in valid point (checked with HxD)
i could even extract it the bin get bootldr and so on
what should i do next ? thanks for answering
