Hello everyone!!! Am stuck with a bricked PS3, i had OFW 3.66 so i upgraded it with 3.72 to downgrade to 3.55 via E3 Flasher, i took a back up of my ps3 bios, i got 4 different files namely bkpps30.bin, bkpps31.bin, bkpps32.bin and E3flasher.log. so i tried to restore with the same bios and from then on, MY PS3 GOT BRICK
i tried soldering the SBE and NOR tristate, and followed the tutorial with my bios still same problem, my ps3 starts and goes off, TRIED with modified bios of someone who told that it can help, but it didnt work too.
Is there someone who have face the same problem and have any solution ? Please help me. MY Ps3 model is cech 3000A, it had 3.66ofw.
Did you try getting the recovery menu? Hold your power down until the unit beeps... keep holding. It will beep twice and then shutdown. Once it shuts down repeat the process and wait for the two beeps. You will hopefully be in the recovery mode.
Whatever firmware you were attempting I would suggest trying to install that same firmware again to see what results you get. I wouldn't try the backup you got from a friend only because the original one you have should be the one your trying. You could always try reverting back to 3.66 and seeing if it will allow withe the E3 Flasher.
i tried to enter recovery mode, but it fails, everytime i keep holding the power button the PS3 shutsdown without the second beep, and it is completely shutting off no lights on ps3. it is not possible to enter the recovery mode i guess.
The 3000x series cant be downgraded cech-2503b was the last downgradable model and if you attempted to re-flash the bios without checking if the dump you made had no errors, the console is bricked for good!
