NOTE: The attached dump is ONLY for 3.41 consoles.
1. Flash a Kiosk payload to your jailbreak device. 2. Insert the JB device into your PS3, insert a disc into the PS3. Hard power off the PS3 (unplug or back switch), then hard power it on (plug or back switch). When it restarts automatically hard power it off again as soon as you see the blue light flash. Hard power it on once more. 3. Power On button then Eject within 0.2 seconds. 4. Go to System -> hover over Security Settings, hold L1 + R1 + Select + Square, then type in the unlock code for 3.41: 2998. 5. Place Comgenie's Awesome Filemanager, FreeFlash, and the vsh folder onto a USB thumb drive and insert it into the PS3. Install both packages and run FreeFlash. 6. Run ComgenieAwesomeFilemanager. Browse to /dev_fflash/vsh/. Switch over to the right side and browse to /dev_usb00x/vsh/. Press select, circle, then start. 7. Wait until it finishes copying over. Hard reset your console, and it's done!
For those interested, the vsh is from a CECHE01 console, but I tested it on a Demo CECHA01 and it worked.

i've made exactly as i've already written.. anyway, have you rebooted in recovery mode? (see attached image)
to reboot in recovery mode, keep pressed start botton, until you heard a double quick beep... to browse recovery mode menu, you have to plug the controlled with cable.
if you have arrived in this point, select 6 - (system update) and install the firmware 3.41 kiosk (i had previously put in a usb key)... wait the installation complete and nothing else.. when rebooted all the menu were recovered.
i have followed this guide (i've a kiosk CECHH04 40 giga model).. but after rebooting, my XMB, hasn't any menù!!! only the "moving wave"... is possible to recover my consolle? how can i access to flash directory to replace the old VSH directory. thanks in advance.
hi, still me. fortunately, my ps3 is back!!! if someone else should fail the flash update, my experience could be interesting:
1- reboot in recovery mode
2- select system update..
3- the installation of the new firmware, replaces the correct flash directory.
i just want to add: PLEASE BE CAREFUL with Comgenie, everytime I see those dev_flash folders I feel pretty scared that I might delete them accidentally. (Deleting anything here can break your ps3 anytime)
There's two modes, blue screen and red screen, if you don't understand what these are, just read the text carefully, then learn how to back up all the folders on the left via blue screen mode first to a USB stick before doing any modifications!
