Hi i recently asked for help on: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-he...lp-120209.html
I was very happy i had got an answer, i decided to carry on with the process. i compared my flash0/1 from an early dump and one i had just dumped and they were different.
I remembered that the early dumps i had an external power supply powering the chips and the more recent ones i had the flashing red light to power the chip (PS3 powered up). I am going to borrow a psu from work tomorrow to confirm that it is this that has caused the difference.
I have also received an error with both sets of dumps when trying to merge the two using flowrebuilder 3.50. It roughly says "1 bad block was found... flash1 rebuilt created... could not successfully extract all dump files because probably unscramble operation has failed for this dump.
part of files extracted to..."
Any help or suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks.
