Checking your PS3 Nor Dump if it is Byte-Reversed or No.
Applying the correct downgrade patches depending on the Dump type detected.
Eliminating the need to byte-swap the dump in order to apply the patches.
Making the patching easier rather then using several programs to do it.
Added new Rogero CFW4.40 v1.02 patches.
Works for any PS3 model with downgradable metldr revision (not metldr2) including PS3 with Minver 3.56
No more FSM is needed for downgrading.
Added detection of non-downgradable "metldr" revisions.
Added support for Interleaved NAND Dumps (now will patch both Nor and Nand dumps)
How to use:
Dump your Flash many times and verify it well before proceeding.
Drag and Drop any Nor or Interleaved NAND Dump onto the executable,
It will detect the dump type and patch it accordingly with CFW4.40 patches.
Flash the patched image back into the PS3 Nor/Nands.
Restart the PS3.
If the PS3 was already on OFW4.40 then it must start normally and you can Install Rogero CFW4.40 v1.02 from XMB -> Settings -> System Update.
If the PS3 was on OFW < 4.40 then you will see the "Connect a PS3 controller" screen, and you can continue by installing Rogero CFW4.40 v1.02 simply by following the screen instructions.
Warning: This program does not check for the dump validity, you must provide a good dump previously checked and verified.
It will patch the dump image even if it's not a 100% valid dump, the program only does some minimal checks before patching assuming that the user have provided a valid dump.

Hi, I flashed my ps3 back to original dump but I am getting no signal from hdd or usb what can I do I verified my dumps with ps3 flash tool and bwe nor validator 1.31 all was fine my ps3 model is cechk01.
Following up on the previous updates from BwE, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer sinsizer has made available PS3 NOR / NAND Statistic Beta for those interested in validating and checking their PS3 NOR / NAND dumps.
This tool works different than other validators. Instead of outputting a full log, it will output an error.log, if validate is checked. But see for yourself.
Always patching 3.55 is recommended to see if the patched statistic is right/green. ckp_management_ID values have to be equel as well as per_console_nonce (should be stated in error.log if not). There is one easy rule! If the error.log contains an entry, your dump is definitly broken!
Ros section is excluded from validation. Why? It's easy to repair, the hole section gets patched anyway and it leads to the rule above.
For NAND all known sections gets checked. But a big part is not or only rarely documented. So the hole part after cvtrm, cell_ext_os_area, OtherOS and unreferenced area at the end won't be checked. It's very important that you have look at the statistics and the “corrupt block count” of flowrebuilder when interleaving.
It's always recommended to check dumps manually with an hexeditor, and using other tools for validation, to be as save as possible! As long as it is not possible to decrypt the full dump, it's impossible to validate it to 100%. Keep in mind this is only beta.
Update: From sinsizer:
Added 4.46 patches
Some small changes
OFFSET: 0xF00896 --- VALUE: 0x20 --- 0x00 BLANK AREA
