Since my CECHG01 bricked even though it reached 100% and restarted to then get yellow light, I tried all solutions recommended such as removing cables, hard drive etc. Nothing worked, so i setup a repair service since I pay for the repair service membership.
Anyhow I decided to pop my 320gb hard drive (Seagate 2.5 320gb) in my SATA to USB adapter and try and see if i could back it up somehow to my laptop. I opened up the usual program I use which is EASEUS Partition Master PRO. My hard drive shows up as NEW! with nothing used, formatted or anything.
Unallocated 298.09 GB. I had 6+ games including installed data in there plus all my hombrew and saves. Last I checked (last night) i had 137 gb free. So basically this erased my hard disk too? Loved the research Wanin did. Thanks for the hard work on the ps3 scene. Killing off more JBreakers than sony did. Awesome.
DO NOT UPDATE IF YOU OWN A CECHG01 (Mine was a Spider-man 3 40GB bundle) STAY ON 3.41
