To quote: RSODfix Lv2diag tool

Last week someone found the *Proof of Concept* (POC) PUP/app in the wiki, awesome-- people are looking in the wiki! But the dev who put it there, did so as a POC and hadn't intended for it to be released yet because it required you to be able to install a pkg and run apps... something you couldn't do necessarily if you were RSOD. Now, we present you with the FULL and COMPLETE solution!

Now, Fixing the Red Screen Of Death (RSOD) could not be any easier with this new tool! There have been methods in the past that accomplished the same goal, but certainly the difficulty of use hindered many from successfully recovering their beloved console. As a further commitment to you never needing a dongle again, we bring you this release to work in conjunction with our second...
 

PS3 Preloader Advance by JaicraB, Restore Dev_Flash via LV2Diag

1500°
121w ago - This holiday weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer JaicraB has released PS3 Preloader Advance, a rewritten LV2Diag.self that allows restoring the Dev_Flash.bin file (to fix semi-bricked PS3 consoles) and has been tested on JFW DH CFW although it should work on all Custom Firmware he states.

Download: PS3 Preloader Advance SELF / PS3 Preloader Advance v2 SELF

To quote, roughly translated: Already available the tool to reset any "/ dev_flash". It is but a program that runs without external modules.

Why we find it being unable to load basic libraries housed in the "/ dev_flash" we must use direct syscalls to the kernel. The compilation is clean STUB external modules, hence it only takes a few KB ...

The function is to load the file "/ dev_usb000/flash1.bin" and write in RAW mode to the "/ dev_flash". But not before mounting the "/ dev_flash" Write mode.

It's simple but effective. There are dangers of bricks, but backup mistake or left unfinished for various reasons.

In principle works in all FIRMS, but mainly is designed to JFW-DH356MA by semibricks problems and instead of HDD when the system stored inside the "/ dev_flash".

But you have...
 

JaicraB's Patched LV2Diag.self, Skip Blu-ray Drive for PS3 Updates

550°
168w ago - Today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer JaicraB has released a patched LV2Diag.self file which allows users to skip the Blu-ray drive 'BD FIRMWARE' and 'Blu-ray Disc Player Revoke List' steps while doing PS3 Firmware updates.

Download: JaicraB's Patched LV2Diag.self for PS3

To quote, roughly translated: I modified the Lv2diag.self with the sole purpose of being able to put an UPDATE without having to rely on the reader. It is one more step to take advantage of flaws in the PS3 controller BD.

The change is based on skip two steps in the upgrade process. "BD FIRMWARE" and "Blu-ray Disc Player Revoke list." Whose patches are:

0x3CF0 offset = 0x419E0044
offset = 0x48000034 0x3C50

This allows you to skip the two functions related to the BD-Drive. Avoid the error and let the system continue to update.

Still not solved the problem without running Hombrews reader. I hope a solution comes soon. Yet the purpose of this is not piracy, but a step to the console without reader scene.

USE

  • Activate Service Mode.
  • Copy the root of the USB Lv2diag.self entered.
  • Copy the root file update PS3UPDAT.PUP desired.
  • Turn on the PS3 with the USB port inserted in 0 (the...
