My question is, what steps are missing ? I find that tutorial to be just amazing! And from what i've seen from wiki page, there was no step left behind...
Your thoughts ?
when i was told about it being in the wiki under "brick risk" while i was in the #psdowngrade channel i was told by the the same person (i cannot remember his name) that he heard i was told about it but i just ignored them. i said this was the first i had heard about it and i then removed the guide from all 3 sites i have control of the guide on.
eussL then told me that when he was looking at it that right at the start it deviated from the wiki so he stopped reading it and issued a warning.
when asking where it was wrong i was given wiki links that i had allready "dumbed down" in my guide.
and the 2 wiki pages that i have linked to at the end of the validate step in my guide.
one is a E3 basic validate steps (i have this in the guide but i do this a different way)
i then was asked by many members here to re-post it as they had done loads of downgrades before my guide and after and had found my guide to cover the same as the wiki only the way i have it was easer to follow.
so after a week i re-posted with a big warning at the start of the guide saying not to follow it i then had a spoiler with the explaination of why it was not to be followed (what i have put above but with more info)
after not finding where it was wrong myself i then added direct links to the wiki at the end of the verify steps.
i have not hidden or tried to hide that the wiki doesnt like the guide but i have tried to find where it is wrong.
i have also not had any help from the dev's about where it is wrong or what is missing / could be explained / shown better.
i have had help from
when i did the progskeet guide
he helped me to understand the workings of the skeet and the "soft brick" de-hash fail when the guys on #psdowngrade told me it was a permibrick (unrecoverable)
he also helped me understand a fair few parts of the wiki including the verify page. (i think i still have the messages between us over on crunch about this)
he was really helpfull
with the TEENSY++ guide (judges had no input in the verify as i beleved this part to be correct so i didnt ask him to check that for me)
he helped me to understand the NORway program and to get the TEENSY++ working on all NOR consoles in a universal way rather than volt reg on of 1 console volt reg off for another and thats just the start of the help he gave me. great guy
but when asked where its wrong over at #psdowngrade i just kept being told to just link to the wiki instead and that the guide is a copy of the wiki (very contradicting & confusing)
