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

Does this fix limit internet connectivity in any manner?

Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers sguerrini97 and ripl (aka haxxxen) have made available (via Chipwelt) a PS3 RSoD Fix PKG for all Custom Firmware (CFWs) with details below.

To quote, roughly translated: PS3 homebrew developers sguerrini97 and ripl[a.k.a.haxxxen] have made available a new PS3 RSoD (Red Screen of Death) fix for all CFW.

  • 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.
  • The "RSoD Fix all" PKG is for RSoD Bypass CFW, CEX and DEX 3.55 until CFW 4.65, not with the CFW 9.99 DG PUPs

Steps from XMB:

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

2) Install the rsod fix all.pkg package, and run it from XMB

3) Run rsodfix. (Blackscreen, tripple beep and Reboot PS3 new)

4) when you already old installed trophys to continue to use

Should their first a game with not Trophie installed. It can otherwise happen the Trophielist renewed after RSoD Fix then be all Trophies will deleted!!! Finished... gaming whatever you want

We have all CFWs with RSoD bypass tested and at all CFW the RSoD error has been fixed. Plugged a USB device into the PS3, a log is created:

  • RSoD Error: ffffffff80010505 = cvtrm error Not corrected
  • RSoD Error: 0 = cvtrm is error free

Big thanks to: sguerrini97 for RSoD Fix4.46 and ripl [a.k.a. tpryor & haxxxen] for RSoD Fix all CFW

Special thanks to: dospeidra, an0nymous, nikitis and robs for RSoD Fix 3.55

Finally, from Rudi Rastelli: Here is a better translation:

1) Install a "RSoD Bypass patched CFW" so that you can boot. (Any will do except a 9.99 Downgrader CFW !!!)
2) Install and run the "rsod_fix_all_cfw.pkg". This will give you a blackscreen, a tripple beep and reboots PS3.
3) Important: Start a game which don't have any installed trophies on your system immediatly after the fix, else all already installed trophies will be deleted !!!

Finished! The RSoD error is fixed. Trophies and savegames will work again !!!

Now you can re-install your desired CFW. A CFW with RSoD bypass is only needed to run the fix.

We've tried our fix on all known CFWs with RSoD bypass and in all cases RSoD was fixed. If there is a USB device plugged into the PS3, a log is created:

  • RSoD Error: ffffffff80010505 = cvtrm error Not corrected
  • RSoD Error: 0 = cvtrm is error free

Big thanks to: sguerrini97 for RSoD Fix4.46 and ripl [a.k.a. tpryor & haxxxen] for RSoD Fix all CFW
Special thanks to: dospeidra, an0nymous, nikitis and robs for RSoD Fix 3.55

This is from my own experience with RSoD:

  • Even if the RSoD-fix works in 1st place a RSoD is often caused by a faulty flash chip. Keep in mind that you can't fix a faulty chip permanently with just software.
  • If you have a NOR-PS3 my advise is to make backup of your flash via multiMAN immediatly after the fix and keep it in a safe place.
  • If the RSoD re-occures you need to replace NOR-chip and flash the backup back to the new chip in order to fix the RSoD permanently.

But anyway... thx for the new fix. Good work !!!

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
