The file must be named "Lv2diag.self" in the root directory. Use the file in the "Lv2diag.self FILE 2" folder of the DGF rar. Put the dongle (this is VERY IMPORTANT) in the FAR RIGHT USB PORT (if the PS3 was laying flat, TOPMOST when standing). Power the unit on. In a few moments, the power will switch to standby (red).

Recovery menu? Hard power off (unplug or switch on back, if you have one), plug in, or switch back on (into standby). Hold the power switch down until it beeps, beeps again, then goes back to standby. Press and hold the power again, until it beeps, double-beeps, then let up.
Congrats. You are now in recovery mode, and can reflash another update.
For newer updates via recovery menu, Place in <DRIVE>:\PS3\UPDATE\PS3PDAT.PUP and go through the recovery System Update. Don't use 3.55, but make sure it's the same as the one identified in the recovery system update screen or above.
