I have soldered and unsoldered the infectus 3 times as a matter of fact. Its not an easy task. Hense the CAPS in the warning. Now if some person who has not held a soldering iron in their life is going to attempt this let me clarify it for them again "DONT DO IT IF U R NEW TO THIS"

I dont expect nor need donations as well as I wont do it for any 1... I got other things outside of the gaming world on my plate.
This was just my suggestion. AKA my 2 cents
Take them or leave them is up to u.
I thought this idea could help some that are fully capable of doing this and not cause more ppl to now bitch at me which is what disgusts me some times with non thankful members that have no skills.
yes this infectus route is defintly for folks who have good soldering skills and the right equipment. including kynar wire, sold station & lots of patience - weed (optional as can cause diversions).
hi sorry for bad english
my ps3 is fat 60GB CECHA12 Fw 3.55 offical sony
before installing cfw Waninkoko i make backup save and ftp dev_flash to pc then open my ps3 and remove nand from main board and reading with universal programmer (xeltek model : 580U) and save backup
nand as flash0 & flash1 in binery also i Do this multiple times for sure got a clean and accurate dump by md5 comparing them for differences
after soldering two nand to mainboard try to installing cfw Waninkoko ps3 stop installing
and give me error code 8002F057 and reboot but not power on green led for 2 secound
and flashing red light no more
now i deside to open again ps3 and remove nand and reprogram with backup nand
before saveing to my pc but after reprograme ech nand with correct backup and solder to main board and reassembling ps3 not turn on again green led for 2 secound and flashing red light why ?????
please help me if i mistake
It certainly helps to have a hot-air station and a tsop 48 clip attached to the infectus like what I have.
this helped me when i had the worsted brick, had 30 bricks already always i get it running again, if you dont get out of that loop you can try to disconnect the battery , ( this helped for me when i had red screens with warnings , discinnect the battery and then turn the cable of the battery and push them on the other two unused pins, turn console on, hit power button till it get green, turn of with big power button, then disconnect battery of the earlyer unused pins and let them unused again and turn the block of the cable and use the other 2 pins where it belongs ) only do this when nothing else helps.
hope it helps someone
i have hot-air station and i Expert solder
my only problem about after removing nand and reprogram with backup
and resolder to ps3 mainboard but not working (stay green 2 secound + flashing red light)
i backup nand before brick and reading 2 time and compairing md5 and save
in binery (for example i save as flash0.bin & flash1.bin)
also before brick save lv2.bin and ftp dev_flash to my pc
problem is after brick ps3 and reprogram nand with correct backup before
brick ps3 not working
sorry for bad english

Maybe someday some dev will come up with a simpler noob freindlier solution for backing up and recovering the nand without any fancy soldering. Something like Bootmii on the Wii, its like idiot proof.
