Bricked PS3 Help
Hello. I just got in a PS3 from a client. He says he had cfw installed without knowing which cfw, and he said that it was working then one day it just wouldn't turn on. when pressing the power button it turns on does not show anything on screen and after 30-60seconds it turns of without beeping, the power led turns completely off. I could not get into recovery menu, it would just turn off if i kept pressing the power button. So I opened it up and I connected the nor tristate to ground, to see if it would stay on, if so it would be bad flash. And it did stay on. So I get my flasher, read the nor a couple times and checked it in NWE nor validator. Everything checks out except for ROS1. ROS0 has a check mark and ROS1 has a warning sign. How could I fix this?
Here are some things I have tried and failed (sort of).
I patched the nor with rogero nor patcher a wrote it to the console. Turned it on and now I got image on screen, but it said something about a serious problem and gave error 8002f2f0. FSM dongle does not work, still boots up to this error.
So then I tried the unbrick tutorial I found on here. Where you flash a nor image, then the console original image, then the e3_downgrade bin, unplug and insert fsm dongle. I get the same error number and fsm dongle does not work. And I do press power and then eject quickly, after disconnecting and reconnecting the power.
I can get into recovery menu now but any option I press will send me to the same error. An yes that is the correct error number 8002f2f0. triple checked. Cant seem to find anything on that error.
Anyways, is there anything I can do to just fix ROS1? I still dont understand the ps3 nand and nor parts as much as the 360's. So I don't know if the ROS1 part is encrypted to the console or not. Or what do you recommend I should try?
Thanks for reading!
Ok, so I have now taken everything that is "per console" from the nor dump and placed it in another good nor dump from a different console. I flashed it on the PS3. When I pressed the power button it would turn on for 5 seconds then turn off with no beep.
Then I took this new image and patched it with rogero nor patcher, flashed it back and the console displays the same error message as before. And I still cannot get into fsm mode.
