On the last section of the E3 Flasher guide something went wrong. I was on the section "De-hashing" and at that point everything was working fine. My PS3 Firmware was on Rogero 4.11 and I installed and toggled The QA Flag and did the button combo on network Settings and got the extra selections. Then I did the step to go to OFW 3.55 then at 24% my system shuts off for no knowledgeable reason. Now my system does not stay on for more than 5 seconds. Nothing loads up on screen. After 5 seconds all lights shuts off completely and the only thing functioning is the eject button when I press it (Which all I get are three beeps when pressed, as if no game is inside).
I have my bios backed up but the system does not stay on long enough for the E3 Flasher to work.
I looked all over the web for solutions to similar problems but no luck. The only thing I hadn't tried was the swap out the HDD on a different system and format it or replace the PSU.
My system is a CECH- 21xx.
Min Vervion Checker said I can go as low as 3.50.

Mother Board: JSD-001
I double checked this wiki ps3devwiki,com/wiki/Validating_flash_dumps and it said my board should work.
Everything matched in the dump as shown in the guide and was good so my system should have accepted the downgrade. I figured it would since Rogero 4.11 was working in the De-hashing step.
Also another weird thing is when I hold down the eject button and plug the power cord in the system stays on for about 10-20 seconds but the fan goes crazy fast and loud.
Any suggestions would be great. Thanks ^^
