Is this YLOD or Broken or other
Is this YLOD or Broken or other –
I have PS3 fat. And I downgraded it to Rogero. Later after about a month I decided to change rogero with Kmeaw. So I put kmeaw on a flash drive and installed it from recovery and after that my screen turned black. Now when I turn my ps3 on, the light turn green for about 4 sec then it turns yellow for half a second then it keeps blinking red.
When I looked for Ylod all the people who faced it was while playing not changing CFW. So should I fix this with ylod fix guide (by heating) or others? And if I fixed it with ylod guide which CFW will it boot on ?
I faced system corruption on my pc and smartphone and none of them needed a hardware fix. So although I saw the yellow light I am not sure that it will be fixed by YLOD fix guide. So please tell me what to do.
Thanks in advance.

same thing happened to me when installing OFW 3.55 over rogero 3.55 spoofed to 4.25
however YLOD is a hardware failure where the soldir between the CPU or GPU and the motherboard is cracked it has nothing to do with software its just YOU AND I were so lucky to have while changing CFW lol, some people had while playing a game
i think you should try the heatgun TUT. but be careful
Wish me good luck as i will try the heatgun 2day
the FW it will boot on depends or not ur console finished installing the FW like mine did or not, worst case scenario you get a system brick which might be fixed with E3 flasher or something
I wish you good luck with repairing yours I will try and replay with what happened.
Don't heatgun your console, I get 3 or more consoles a week that have been ruined by this method.
I have also had a YLOD console while downgrading it. Managed to fix it by re-flowing the proper way.
After thinking I decided not to buy a heat gun and I will use the oven fix some people say that it is better than heat gun fix. And will work longer.

So looks like the problem isn't from the motherboard. And it is not like the normal YLOD that people face because of playing for too long.
Any help would be appreciated .
