    Ps3 cech 3004a cannot boot or even get into fsm after installing exploit by accident. Is there a way to make it bootable again or enter recovery mode?? Now it turns on for 2 sec. and then shuts down.

    If you can get a hardware flasher like an e3 or a teensy you can fix what you broke by using an exploit designed only for cfw compatible systems

    Yes, you patched a hex file to the NOR which isn't meant to be patched in consoles that are not able to get CFW installed,and the patch completely messed up LV0/bootloader, so your console can't even boot. This is the common PS3Xploit brick for non-CFW compatible consoles (3XXX slims, 4XXX super slims)

    There's no way it was installed by "accident", you have to download the hex file to either a usb or your ps3's hard drive, specify the file and also actually hit initalize and flash. You bricked it by not reading the instructions and compatible models in the first place.

    You can't, it's not gonna fix your bricked system, that's what bricked it in the first place as you have an incompatible console. You need a hardware flasher like an E3 or a Teensy

    EDIT: Assuming you backed up your Flash before attempting this.

    I wouldn't know as i've never used one, but i think E3 Flashers are easier(?) because its a ribbon clip that clips onto your NOR chip, but don't quote me on that.

    You solder a wire from the Tristate point to any GND point near the NOR chip. This will "revive" your console as it will stay powered on, but it won't show anything on screen. Think that you have the PS3 on a "coma" state, it is unresponsive until you flash a healthy dump to your chip using E3 Flasher.

    How did you get your console bricked in the first place? This is quite illogical
