Bailey... So I soldered both connections (SBE and SBCE on the E3 Clip to their respective points on my DYN-001 MOBO) and severed the A&B. After doing so i followed your tut and downgraded my PS3 to 3.55CFW > then dehashed using QA menthod > installed 3.55OFW > then installed 3.55CFW Rogero (one provided in the FSM downgrade).
Here is the part where I am getting stuck. I am now on Rogero 3.55cfw (used the PS3UPDATE.PUP that is in the FSM folder. Added it to a USB stick while on 3.55OFW and updated). The next step in your tut I am to "go into the E3 Flasher programs folder then files for dual booting folder and then 2012.01.05 update and drag & drop the update.bin (this is the dual boot one) file to the micro sd.
" I did that and the UPDATE to the E3 took. All the lights turned BLUE. I waited an addtional 15 seconds and press the RESET button underneath the ESATA cable. I also checked the TF it was blank. So far so good...
Next (and this is where i am stuck) in your INSTALL CFW TO THE E3 FLASHER NOR CHIP
. I set the switches as
1 down / 2 UP
/ 3 down / 4 UP
/ 5 down / 6 down and power on the PS3. However when I power on the PS3, the E3 Flasher turns on, I can hear the HDD spin up, but within 5 seconds the PS3 shuts down, beeping 3 times quickly and i get a RED
blinking light (blinking in 1 second intervals).
What did I do wrong and how should I proceed?
Thanks in advance. (on a side note i've tried everything and many other tutorials. However at this step after downgrading whenever i flip the CFW up i get a blinking RED light.)
