Purposely Bricked My CECHE01 256MB with Factory Service Mode in Update Loop 8002F14E, Recovered w/o my Infectus
I did this with the intention of actually using my Infectus to read/write the nand of my ps3 that will not likely take the heat gun anymore.
Garyopa testing 3.55 LV2diag.self B4 sending a faulty console 2 the recycle bin gave me the idea originally.
My First Post So Any Interest and Comments are Appreciated
I have a 80GB CECHE01 doesn't read disks and I have done a bunch of reflows just sitting around that had 3.55 rebug also a Infectus 2 doing nothing so I started the DG without the drive connected green light blinked green for 45min killed the power was able to get into recovery restored 3.55OFW got (8002F14E) I let it loop until it tells you to power down. NOW the fun part !! stuck my E3 in and (jb) instant RSOD what I had hoped for,
Update 0% RSOD with 3.55,DG files, even DG files patched lv2. I for sure bricked/corrupted the nand so off I went to find how to install the infectus and recover with CVOS v3.1 and a lot of people with 256MB nand bricked/RSOD could not fix then using any suggested method that worked on most 16MB fat, (format HDD,remove battery and so on. when I came home I started taking the ps3 apart removed the HDD and went to format and windows couldn't see it, used disk management to format it and I everything I read said 256MB consoles do not rely on the hard drive for updates and OS and doing just that would not help the RSOD, So I thought what the hell I will try putting the patched lv2 and modified 3,41 and a usb stick it in and hit power..
Now this makes no sense to anything I have read or even the process of factory service mode light sequence !!
The light stayed solid green (meaning in the DG tutorial use different flash drive) But NO RSOD and after 10sec or so my usb flashed a few times 10 more sec flashed a few more (still solid green) by the power button and after a while the activity light on the usb picked up and the console started flashing green, Thinking to myself no way its going finish but it did ????? Put it file 2 and 10sec later shutdown removed it and pressed power and It surprised me with a different boot logo I don't ever remember seeing (black screen w/ Sony Entertainment no fancy XMB wave.
