nor chip ?
hello I have a fat with rsod I also got a slim that was droped and will not turn on. as far as I can tell the red screen is something to do with the vsh in the nor chip have anyone tried to take the nor off a fat and replace it with one off a slim I think other then the blue ray it should work and if you have a good bin dump from a fat you could flash it to the new chip to clone systems I guess. or can you just put a new nor chip on and flash it with a good dump bin. just thinking it sucks to scrap to ps3 if I could use one to fix the other :-pray:
i hearded that these chips where unique for one console . Im not sure though
you can swap it, i am not really sure about from a fat to a slim, but i would say its possible.
just dump the old NOR, desolder it, then solder the new NOR on and flash it.
or you can off-board flash if you have the correct setup.
you might have to run the rsod.lv2diag to finally fix it tho. if the data or NOR is corrupt, then when you dump it, it might be corrupt. but rsod.lv2diag should fix it.
also, what firmware is the rsod ps3 on?
