I'll try swapping out the USB hub for a diff one and see if that works... its weird cause i've done this several times before and never had the YLOD
well i have the flasher installed and all.. but i keep getting these errors.. i keep solving the error only to be confronted with another. i have a valid dump and have updated the flasher, but nowhere after that, because i get a "cannot read the TF card" error
is your TF card in the whole way? In my experience you need to pull the metal cover up, it's on a hinge so it should open relatively easily, but mine broke so I have to hold it on when I want to do something with it. the end of the TF card should be sticking out a teensy bit beyond the metal cover.
I'm having a similar issue. I have CECH 2001a and just replaced the laser. Worked fine but eject mechanism wasn't working. Reset that and now the new laser won't read disc. All ribbons are connected firmly. Not sure what to do now
