first off, you cannot install notheros or any other unpatched firmware in factory service mode. it will fail on bluray installation process.
second, this lv2diag.self does nothing at all. it is useless with a real rsod, this i can asure you.
the only thing that helps is the pkg made from the users from downgrade irc channel. but if it is a hardware error, it will return.
i would try to run the pkg, and then do a factory service mode install with another firmware that is bluray bypass patched (rogero's for example). but the pkg will only work on that notheros. after this you can install any other firmware. though, as i said, it maybe return as of hardware=nor corruption.
a real fix would be replacing the complete nor chip
sony has put this error in lv0 if a nor corruption is assumed. i think if somebody can patch this error routine, it will also work without problems. but here i am assuming
lol m8, you got your shit crossed up or something. the pkg tool is old and no longer the recommended way of doing it. you can read that on ps3devwiki
as a matter of fact here is a link
and who the hell told you that you cant install unpatched firmware in FSM :0
go ahead, get into fsm on your ps3 and install 3.55 OFW in FSM.
oh and btw to set shit right, notherOS IS a patched firmware. why the hell you think its unpatched? there are many patches in it ^^
i also have a notherOS downgrader pup i use for RSOD console on 3.56+ when i downgrade them. works a treat tbfh.
it will fail with bluray error on me. so it is only me or maybe my console? and these rsods are not hardware related.
notheros is a standard otheros++ pup with dev patches. you can build it yourself easily, but it has not bluray update pkg removed. the only difference is basic_plugin
weird this lv2diag self never has worked for my rsods...
to the OP.
if you already have rsod pup installed...
grab that toggle qa.pkg and run it.
once you do that run the lv2diag in fsm
then install 3.55 OFW
if 3.55 OFW install without rsod, then your good hopefully.
if it does work.... stay on 3.55 CFW for a few weeks or a month before updating to 4.30 CFW.
hope it works out for you :)
well i wish you wouldn't try to bust my balls on something that you've only tested on YOUR console.

yes if the rsod is hardware related then your best bet is to find out whats causing it and fix it.
you can get it from more than just 1 thing also. eg hardware causing it and software too.
not only that but different software corruption will cause it.
ok op. listen to this guy and mods delete my posts. i do not want to talk to such users
as i said, my posts should be deleted as i am only drunk and don't know what i am talking about :shhh:
