how about instead of just saying dont follow this guide like the rest of them do. you actually point out how and where this guide is wrong.
it covers everything the downgrade any E3 guide does and more. (you know the guide posted on the wiki) only i do it a different way round.
and i dont cover pointless bits like hdd serial numbers.
i also link the verify page on the wiki and say go there once the checks here are done.
no other guide actually shows what to do. they just give the basics then links back to the wiki with a "here you go figure out how to do it attitude"
i show them how to use the tools.
then when they go to the wiki they have a good idea of how to follow it.
if my guide bricks then tell me where and i will change it.
i dont do it for the devs i do it for the everyday people.
and what the hell is wrong with my rear usb mod??
geez your just out for me arnt you!!!!
lets see you have ago at gregory raspuntin for his rear usb guide. no? didnt think so

but makesure everything is plugged in
Hey guys, I was just wondering if someone could help me.
I'm thinking of buying a E3 flasher (not the limited version so I wont have a dock)
I'm nervous because it doesn't mention anything about flashing a slim without a HDD attached, also I was wondering if I could do the "fastest method" of this guide if I am on 4.31 OFW, I have a PS3v Dongle that I have set as a down grader as well as a PSP-1000 with PS3Jig on it, so which one should I use if I have to use the "fast method" and not the "fastest"
I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to respond, I'm new to all of this but generally a quick learner, my main priority is knowing how to flash without my HDD of my PS3 slim actually connected.
the part where you get the shield from off the cpu and gpu, must of been where i messed up the connection to what i think was the gpu
i did not start to relise this until after i had connected the nor clip to my samsung nor chip and was noticed that when i tried to update the e3 flasher firmware that i had no lights at all on the e3 flasher after turning on ps3 and wating
then i took the e3 flasher off to test my ps3 and found i had no audio or video, i thought it might of been unrepairable because i thought i cracked the motherboard trying to separate the cpu and gpu thermal paste sticking to the shield
i let the ps3 sit for a few hours then it started up, and would freeze, i got happy thinking it is probably just the gpu solder balls
i have a AOYUE 968A+ and i followed this guide ... PS3 YLOD FIX Reflow with hot air gun - YouTube
i bought the AOYUE 968A+ rework station about 8 months ago and never used it, i also had got flux, leaded solder, solder balls , jig> i guess taht is what its called) and screens for reballing xbpx and ps3 chips, and i bought a arm lamp that i used to position the air gun
i followed that guide 100c for 5 minutes 210c for 10 minutes on each chip and now its working again
im glad i damaged the ps3 gpu connection , gave me a reason to use the AOYUE 968A+, i had bought it to reflow my old fat 3.55cfw ps3, but decided to i wanted to learn about downgrading nor and not nand at this time anyways
glad i bought it now tho, i got a hot air gun but its much safer to be able to set the exact temperater
i still plan on finishing the downgrade, its a 120gb 2000 DYN motherboard, i got lucky when i bought because i bought it before i knew that newer slims cant be downgraded
i thought about getting into repairing systems but i just imagine alot of customers might want to rip me off
i get ripped off enough sometimes just trying to buy a system let alone offering a service
I have seen a solderless progskeet can that be used to downgrade the ps3? also is there a video tut or is this the only tut around
Hardware Hacks are the way to go!!!
it took me about 20 attempts to update the e3 flasher but finnaly got it after adjusting the clip on nor
currently trying to back up the nor but keep getting error failed to initalise nor
i will keep trying to adjust the clip , i read some people taped nickels on it to hold it down
has anybody succesfully downgraded with progskeet v1.21 and nand clips?ANY advice or help would be great.I have tried the 2 latest bitstreams,i am powering the nands from the progskeet..do i need to use external power?I am just having a hella time.I have tried on xp and 7THANKS!!

THANK YOU FOR THIS GREAT GUIDE!!!I successfully downgraded my 2501a this afternoon,Couple of steps i stumbled on but it was my own fault for having 2 usb same in computer.
FIRST POST MAJOR UPDATE
's PPC+ MD5 & DATE CHECK TOOL (DCT)
Remarry drive has been completely re-done
All files are included (linked to my skydrive instead of github)
All hash checks for the files are included
MD5 check tool is included
NOW STOP GOING ONTO #ps3downgrade AND SAYING THESE FILES DONT MATCH THE WIKI HASHES. THEY ALWAYS HAVE!!
IF THEY DONT MATCH FOR YOU THEN ITS A CORRUPT DOWNLOAD
Cleaned up the post and moved the "recycle your old flasher" to a new thread in the buy / sell section on ps3hax.
Removed the individual links to the trusted downgrader own pages and added a link to
's trusted downgraders thread.
There are more people listed there and it keeps this guide less cluttered
Added links for the upcoming TEENSY++ 2.0 NANDway & InFeCtuS guides
I just bought a progskeet 1.2 to downgrade my nand ps3, but the shorts test from winskeet tells me there are quite a lot of shorts.
Hmm seems i can't post images yet: It tells me there are shorts in DQ13, DQ14, DQ15, GP0, GP1, GP2, GP3, GP8, GP9, GP10, GP11 and GP12.
I can't detect anything wrong on the progskeet's board, and i've seen some topics on other sites that it's a problem with winskeet. Is that true? Can i just use it to downgrade my ps3 because it's just the winskeet software that thinks there are shorts while there are none?
Anyone got some experience with this?
