    OMG noooooo

    I got my metldr now All linux dumps were invalid, preloader advance did it

    Is there a way to get "make" etc. working on live-CD, or do we have to install it?
    I just used CFW3.55-SPECIAL-otheros++-pub and not the xxxEIGTHxx one which does a separate partition?

    Can i install it anyway?? or wll it overwrite gameos?

    Cheers
    Blade

    Post like these are NOT the ones I want to see. I still haven't even tried converting yet & this just makes me wanna forget it even more. I don't have a flasher either! I think I'm gonna hold off for hopefully an easier solution like in the form of a pkg file or patched DEX FW. It's just too risky for now with the current methods.

    I would also try if I had another spare PS3 but I don't! I have every type of gaming system in our home you can think of & 2 systems of the same console for some. I just don't have an extra PS3 now. I sold my OFW console back earlier this year.

    How did you get the metldr with preloader advance?

    Did you put in an extra option or is it an option there already?

    I used the RedRibbon Live CD and I had to install MAKE to get it working but it still failed. There are a lot more commands missing so RedRibbon wont work. I will be trying to install Debian later tonight.

    The flash dump should be 256MB NOT 256KB.

    I got 2 dumps. 1 from Preloader Advance which is 256MB and 1 from another flash dumper which is 239MB and CEX2DEX says they are both valid and they both dump the same METLDR.

    its is possible to brick your ps3 with this so be careful, you can recover with a hardware flasher, solder the nor tristate wire.. i wouldn't suggest going ahead with this unless you have another way to reprogram your nor or nand chips. all i did was byte reverse my dexflash.bin and use the e3 flasher to program the nor.

    Can't you keep it in service mode and reflash it if it fails? Or is it a total brick and no service mode?

    I got a dongle for service mode if that means anything but no hardware flasher. I might go get one just in case.

    Just a dumb question, we do not need FSELF EBOOTs to run the backup game, retail ones work fine?

    They are both valid dumps yes, but you MUST flash which ever dump back the same method you used to actually dump it (if that makes sense) for example. Flash your Preloader dump back USING PRELOADER ONLY! (safer than any other software method since there's a very slim failure rate).

    From what I've saw, people are bricking their PS3's by dumping via one method and flashing via another. If people are going to do that then they got what's coming for them.
