I have a CECHA model and the metldr on my flashdump is ED AO and then OE D6, the same as listed for the CECHB model. Is this guide reversed?
I've noticed a few other irregularities. Can someone verify this dump from a CECHA01 on Rebug 3.55.2 retail mode NAND dump? BTW, I used memdump for this dump. It looks good from the PS3 dev wiki verification tables, just has some different info than what's listed here.
dude you already created a thread stick with that one please .
No, check out the times. This was done the prior day with no views.
brother if i have progskeet 1.2 version and nor solderless tool
must i also solder wire to motherboard or i wont do solder
i never used Progskeet but i have used E3 Flasher and its solderless i didnto soldered any wire .so i think the same for progskeet .as long as it has Solderless Clip
added wiki links to the verify pages
Concerning NOR Flasher chips is the E3 11 piece "Limited" NOR Flasher package completely necessary?!? OR can downgrading be completed successfully with the 4 piece E3 NOR Flasher kit ?? ??

It is a pain to help people out of the issues caused by guides like this, so I thought I would illustrate this warning.
Furthermore, I suggest following guides written by actual developers and people in the industry (like myself) over at ps3devwiki.com.
Lastly, while I understand this guide may be written out for 'noobs' - it is not enough to be considered safe. If you value your console you should take a few minutes and read the wiki.
Have a wonderful day and best wishes!
Thanks a million! I followed this for e3 flasher on 2101A slim on 4.31 and successful downgrade now on CFW. Not one problem.
Thank you sooo much for the guide. I really understood it well. However, I had one problem.
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- 2501A.
Min Vervion Checker said I can go as low as 3.50.
Metldr: 0x81E: E9 60 0x842: 0E 92
Bootldr: 0xfc0002: 2F 53 0xFC0012: 2F 53
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 ^^
