Need some help with E3 flasher
Need some help with E3 flasher –
I was unlucky with the first version of Rogero's new CFW and got a brick. I ordered an E3 flasher 3K limited (full set) and the E3 Card Reader AVR. I should have it some time around Wednesday and I've been going through reading up on everything that needs to be done and checking that I have everything needed. I'm running into a couple issues and was hoping you guys could help me out
I have a NOR Slim PS3 model 2001A. I've been following mainly the PS3 Dev Wiki info (I can't stand and don't trust anything on YouTube and the E3 guides are very poorly translated)
1) I know I'm supposed to solder a wire for the unbricking process. Nobody has any suggestions on what to buy
2) I have used memdump.pkg and multiMAN's flash dump feature to dump my NOR. They both are identical. E3's flash checker says it's invalid format. I ran through the check list of validating and it seems fine. I know people say the checker is very flawed. Am I going to get a permanent brick using the multiMAN flash dump instead of one dumped straight from the flasher?
3) Is there any way around buying a Micro SDHC card for the E3 Card Reader?
4) I've seen several places talking about needing to reflash the BIOS. Any clue on what they're talking about and where to get it?
I guess that's it. Just trying to get my ducks in a row and a little help would be appreciated
I just tried to use Rogero's NOR patcher to bypass having to solder that wire. It said it is byte swapped and in progskeet's format. Is it still useable with E3 or does it need converted? It's not byte swapped because I manually checked it. Also when extracting with NORUnpack it doesn't give me a bootloader file, but in HXD everything's in order
WTF is going on here?
I used an old cat 5 cable to solder my tristate to the E3 not the flat cable but the point on the E3.
E3 dumps are Bytereversed that's the problem. Use FlowRebuilder v.220.127.116.11 to patch and Bytereversed your dump.
I have know idea about the card reader I used my phone for that.
You can find the BIOS on the top of E3 page of the wiki under "update E3 Flasher" and it can be installed from the Micro SDHC card in the E3 flasher.
PS3 Dev wiki is really pissing me off. Every file I try to download gets a 404 error (not found)
Sorry Everyone, I have had to remove the files from this section due to legal complications. They will be restored after they have been audited to contain no copyright material. Regards, defyboy
Looks like I have to count on you guys to help me out with the necessary LEV2DIAG.SELF files (2 of them), patches, and anything else needed
pm me a list and I'll see what I can do for you.
Thanks man. You said to use flowrebuilder to byte reverse it but when I loaded the one I grabbed earlier it says NAND on every input box. Is it useable on NOR that you know of?
In the one I sent you click the top box and use "Byte reverse a dump." and put your patched dump in the fourth box.
I was slow
Thanks man - I'm all set. Dump is good and ready to be reflashed with E3. Let me know if I can return the favor
