no, you tiggle FSM with a the dongle (if were are both seeing the same dongle that is ;D)
then after you toggle FSM (your ps3 will turn the power switch off in the back, put the dongle in the right most usb port, then power and eject it like it were an old style dongle jailbreak, the console will turn on, then back off after a few secs.take the dongle out then.
then take the RSOD fix.pup and a certain lv2diag (i will post later) and put them on the root of the usb stick. insert the usb stick in the right most usb port. turn the system on and you wont have any screen output, but the system will stay on, while it is on, it will install the RSOD fix.pup that was on the usb stick. the ps3 will shut itself off after its done. once it is doen, take the usb stick out and quick format it.
then use the exit FSM lv2diag ( i will supply this one also) and put it on the root by ITSELF. put the thumb drive in the same right most usb port and then boot the ps3. it will turn on and then off. you have exited FSM now. take the usb stick out of the usb port and boot the ps3.
then continue the fix's tutorial, i think there is a pkg or something you install.
alternate method is to get in FSM and use the RSOD lv2diag.self instead of the RSOD fix.pup and is actually recommended to use instead of the RSOD fix.pup.
which ever way you wanna do it, although it is recommended to use the RSODlv2diag.self instead of the RSOD fix.pup
but to answer your question "Now, what does it do exactly, as pertaining to my situation?"
answer : it will attempt to rebuild the part of the flash that is corrupted, thus not allowing it to boot correctly. if you run both fixes and still nothing, then you probly cant fix it. but hey its worth a shot if its on 3.55
Do you recommend a dongle for this and beginner jailbreaking?
Preferably under $30.
you can get an e3 card reader from modchipsdirect for 10 bucks i think. and the psgrade hex is free. i have it also so you can get that from me too :P

Just to verify, this is the correct item? modchipcentral (dot) com/store/e3-card-reader-e3reader-jailbreak-e3card-usb-dongle-canada-usa (dot) html
I have also added you as a contact.
Also, while I remember, my main interests with the jailbreak is the ability to install basic PC mods to games like Fallout and Skyrim (Don't know if Skyrim can play, but whatever), and maybe dabble in some alternative sources for retail games if I ever buy a BluRay writer.
I've jailbroken my iPod many times, and I know jailbreaking unlocks too many possibilities to predict them all, so I'd love for it to be pretty easily expanded on.
Can you recommend a jailbreak for it?
This is completely new territory for me.
Don't worry though, I have enough experience from other stuff that I should be pretty competent.
well, if your looking to create mods for games, your best bet with that would be to talk to someone who deals with that kind of stuff, maybe make a new topic in the appropriate category/forum.
but i dont really think modding is a choice of a CFW/MFW, because your modding the actual game files, any CFW allows you access to the game files. i suggest you get on rogero v3.1 or kmeaw CFW and go from there.
Well I know for a fact from xbox modders that Fallout 3 is set up exactly the same as on PC and that any mod that doesn't require FOSE will work (Retextures. Stat changes. Simple stuff). And for the most part, it's just adding files to the data folder.
But can you verify that that is the correct product before I place the order?
i cant verify anything unless you post something for me to verify ;D

anyways, from modchipscentral here is what you need for FSM.
That is the link I posted, but apparently did not go through due to a low post count. :/
Sorry you had to hunt it down, but thanks for doing so!
I'll place the order tomorrow, maybe.
I don't feel like ordering something while using Teamviewer for iOS....
I live in the states though, to answer your question.
