1500°

First let me tell you the following explanation is not a theory or any rumors, it's actually how the USB dongles work to allow different things.

Cobra / True Blue Part 1

Both dongle use syscall / payload (after a big investigation, both dongle also follow the work of graf_chokolo and the functionality of the dongle can be ported into a CFW (not a good idea from some devs I guess)

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.
