Hi i'm in the same situation. I had mostly problems with backup, i didn't know how to get the bkpps3 bin. What i did was rename one of this the three files, (bkpps30, bkpps31 and bkpps32) to bkpps3. After that i tried to restore and failed, and it seems i did get ylod aswell :/ starting to regret starting this
My ps3 is fat, CECHH DIA-001. I have asked help from there i bought my E3flasher and they said i might had put E3flasher wrong side on the nor chip, i followed a guide with motherboard DIA-002 so i might have to switch side on e3flasher. anyone who knows if thats right thing to do?
Hi i might have i clue to solve ylod easy, have been searching a lot. In my case i think i got YLOD for not put some thermal paste when i opened my ps3 to intall e3 flasher. (opened it like three times)
In my opinion you will need follows: 1: Thermal paste, 2: Heat-gun, 3: smooth toothbrush and 4: Somthing liquid that cleans good.
Open ps3 take of E3flasher, heat up the motherboard in my case (DIA 001). After you have heat up the motherboard so much that you barley can hold your finger to motherboard. Notice do not heat it up to much then you damage some important things in motherboard. Next step is to put thin thermal paste on the 2 core's, make sure it covers whole area on the both core's.
Now just pray to god for help ^^ and you maybe able 2 boot up to xmb, lets press (')
Hi forgot to tell after E3flasher gone you do this things first. (Clean those places with liquid that needs to be cleaned and important to take of all old thermal paste before put some new.
