Need to downgrade to remarry bluray drive, need help on how to do so
All day I've been searching the web constantly on how to remarry my newly bought blu ray drive (bought a ps3 that had one with a buggered up logic board and wires).
I was quite annoyed to find that there is no official way to do this, especially when I only want the damn thing to work so I can get on the PSN store, get PS+ and download some games.
I now know that I need to downgrade. however I need help on everything I need and what to do to do so.
So far I've found out that my PS3 is a CECHGXX (A Phat 40GB model) so it can be downgraded.
I also know that there are things such as the E3 flasher, but that is a NOR flasher if I'm correct and my model needs a NAND?
Can someone please help me clear this up so I can get this done as quick as possible, any help will be greatly appreciated so thanks in advance on anyone who does so!
Also I'm completely new to the playstation modding scene, other than my psp I've done nothing else to do with custom firmware and homebrew. Didn't even have to downgrade my psp so I have no idea how it works. Putting any information in a newbie friendly format would also be incredibly helpful!
