If I am correct the PS3's Firmware stored on either the two NAND, or the single NOR chip(s), is the same thing as a laptop's BIOS, in the sense that it handles the Basic Input Output Systems between the (Hard-Coded) PS3's O/S and the Hardware on the PS3 (ie, Blue-ray, HDD, WiFI, Bluetooth, USB, etc.)?
I figure that my problem is not physically Hardware perse,but actually an error between the POST scan, and the CMOS (Or equivalent, EEPROM, etc.) firmware installed?
In my theory, since I know the hardware to be functioning,yet not communicating with the O/S, leads me to believe it is a result from the botched update to Firmware 2.80 therefore as with safe mode in a computer (or booting into a BIOS menu), entering factory service mode should allow me the ability to push the proper 2.80 Update via USB storage?
Though, i'm not sure any of this is even possible,or correct, i'm just trying to think myself here, if there is a way around the conflict, and if Factory Service Mode is possible with firmware 2.80 would a dongle, psp w/cfw,android phone, or script be able to activate the FSM?
Thank you very much for your continued provided help, I know this has been a confusing, and frustrating task.
Alright, Thank you again for your help, i'm gonna give it another go tonight,and see what happens, i'll keep that in mind, and most likely will be doing that if I can't figure this out. thank you again, you've been very helpful with your responses.
