Below are further details via PS3 Dev Wiki: RSOD Fix

The RSOD Fix - Observations about RSOD:

Seems to appear mostly on consoles with Samsung NORS (CECHLxx-CECH20xx) May be caused by an error being thrown while writing to NOR (this is theory) Mostly caused by a corrupt area of flash called VTRM

The original RSOD "fix" was actually a CFW patch to bypass the RSOD. basic_plugins.sprx was modified to ignore the error condition to allow the console to boot. While this worked, certain things like trophies still didn't work correctly.

The actual RSOD fix occurs by the VTRM area on flash being rewritten. The ability to do this is already built into the firmware, it just needs to be called.

Steps from GameOS:

1) Install the NORSOD patched PUP so that you can boot.

2) Install the rsodfix.gnpdrm.pkg package, and run it from XMB (REDACTED)

3) Run rsodfix.

4) Reboot and install whatever firmware you want

Its safe use this method to fix the red screen?

To install the NORSOD patched PUP is using the recovery menu option 6 (update)?

Then install rsodfix.gnpdrm.pkg in menu xmb run the program afther that turn off ps3 and install a cfw using again the recovery menu right?

Best regards

This doesn't seem to be useful to noobs. Maybe you should add a little more detail on how to do this such as; how to actually install the NORSOD.PUP or How to Install the rsodfix.gnpdrm.pkg package, and run it from XMB (REDACTED)!

Would take people about 3hrs just to figure these things out especially if they're noobs such as thyself. Just saying.

The next is after I edited 4 sectors: [Register or Login to view links]
EE4210, EE4550, EC48F0, EC4F00 Were the only things I found but still did not fix the rsod.

Also EE5090 and EE50F0 Seem to be reversed but I dont know if that wrong so I didnt change. Same goes for EC5090 and EC50FO

I pmd Susoft this and hopefully he can help. I see he has been posting lately. He must be tired of fixing other peoples headaches which I understand all to well.
