You still got one more shot, the E3 is not too difficult. If you are comfortable taking your ps3 apart completely then you should not have problems. Depending if your PS3 has NAND or NOR you will have to determine this yourself... soldering is not required for the NOR flashing as there is a device that hugs the chip. as for the usb device I am not sure how it works i believe it has some of their own code that allows you to actually do the downgrade.
i've bricked a console too, it feels awful, sorry yours went. i was lucky last time too cos it was only semi brick and was rescuable with an e3. 2 weeks with no ps3 was a nightmare though. hope you manage to get a flasher sorted and rescue yours
I must have gotten extremely lucky myself. I flashed it from Kmeaw 3.55 in the XMB and forgot I had a 4.25 spoofer installed and active. Hence why I'm currently running CFW 4.21 and reading 4.25. If I uninstall the spoofer will it deactivate it?
I'll do just that. I'm just hoping there will be a release of an updated pkg and I'll be able to deactivate and uninstall. If there's an update to Rogero's CFW whether it be 4.25 or 4.3 or whatever, I don't want that to be a cause of my bricking. Regardless, it's my fault for jumping the gun without double checking everything.
i darent drop down to 3.55 again cos i don't know hiow it would affect the spoofer that i left activated and just deleted. i'm assuming it will be dead cos theres an inbuilt spoofer in the fw
i assume that the install of the cfw wrote over the files the spoofer was using anyway, and if not i think it was rogeros spoofer i was using anyway, so probably same files, i've no idea really, just glad i was lucky
