NEW DOWNGRADE 3.6+ BY INFECTUS AND WANINKOKO BRICK FIX
NEW DOWNGRADE 3.6+ BY INFECTUS AND WANINKOKO BRICK FIX –
You may have to read the title of this article a few times to soak in what I just said. Spanish hacker and PS3Hax member, dospiedras1973, has released a method he has been working on for 2 months to downgrade 265mb NAND PS3s, aka Phat PS3′s from firmware 3.6x. His method requires fancy flashing, and the use of the Infectus mod chip for PS3…so it requires soldering skills and is no “easy feat”. This also fixes the Waninkoko brick that many people had issues with a while back.
To quote (translated):
Hello, I’ve been working on this project about two months nowsince I’ve gotten to work as public so that everyone can use,this tutorial is for consoles with 256MB NAND flash does not mean it does not work in 16MB in itself is changed almostthe same in those with normal flash, but because even I havemy fat ****ing 16mb 80GB I have not been able to neither prove nor verified.
Nougat (the phrase I owe to some forero around here that I really liked the expression):
With INFECTUS flash0.bin and we get our nand flash1.bin asin the tutorial to repair bad lukin nands do the same process until we get our dump flashfinal.bin 256MB
nand we open this with a simple hex editor and look for this part editor
“00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 6F FF E0”
ay you will see that just under a very similar line, I find this datain the offset 000C0020 may vary according to the nand andthe party starts here:-D
EVEN replace that line with the file if you use the hxd1patchcos.bin get in the first 0 of the line -> right click and paste writing before you have to have an open 1patchcos.binhxd in hex and copy its contents to can paste .[ps3hax.net]
“00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 40″
and in the same way as the first patched patched this alsocojemos 2patchtrvk.bin pack the file and replace the entire contents including the “00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 40”
then we take the option we use reescramble flowrebuilder thisdump so we rebuild our flash0.ECC.bin and flash1.ECC.bin
and flash the result, when you finish you will notice that the PS3 now has a nice on but black screen, it cojemos ourfactory jig to put it into service mode and put it in factory, thenthe typical cojemos lv2diag of yore and the pup you please
(NOTE: the first pup that metais will stay in the console as the minimum version that you can downgrade then, if you want tolose 3.55 to 3.41 then you will have to put the pup up to 3.41before 3.55 or 3.55 will remain in that if cost will not rewrite thedump again to downgrade to lower the pup that you put thefirst time.)
then you put your factory lv2diag to leave the service and you’re good
Note: this applies to repair the brick Waninkoko NAND NOTDONATED plates even sem-001 (tested) (and stepdowngrade xD)
all channel # irc-hispano darkps3 for supporting me for so long
to donate the INFECTUS austaquio32 to achieve to continuewith my project
to Nodial2ne paid for the help locating files in the nand
to robs1 for helping throughout the process with ideas tomake this possible
and everyone who was patient and not by private haunts mexD
Download files you need for downgrade HERE.
Below is a pic of the infectus modchip install (so you can get an idea of kind of soldering skills required):
Maybe not the way some of you were expecting, but nevertheless, here it is! Infectus has been around since the start of PS3 so you can do some searching on old guides (disregard the old downgrades tutorials), and install videos. No doubt you will be seeing new and fresh tutorials from us related to the install, and full step by step, noob friendly guides on how to do this. This obviously enables a huge chunk of the scene that left or don’t have access to CFW to once again come back . Slim PS3 owners, hold tight – there just might be light at the end of your tunnel too.

Though very specific and very technical. this is great progress. Hopefully it is made obsolete by a new CFW.
Now we have 4 threads for this. Yes it nice and dandy but no need to open new threads for the same thing. Waninkoko bricks could've been fixed for a long time now, hence the technical discussion thread CECHA01 + Infectus. But, kudos.

This is really not new material. The Infectus chip has been available as a downgrade for a while now. The only thing really new is the un-bricking part. I'm not so sure that's even new because I don't follow everything!
The unbriking part is old too. Some guy just discovered a different way at fixing the bricks and downgrading that it just had to be front page. Honestly, it seems that the other "old" way is quicker.

Sadly I downgrades are all you can look forward to, unless someone at Sony manages to leak the new keys
