    Hello there, I am trying to exploit my ps3 fat but I'm out of luck.

    The usb port 000 is broken so can only use the 001 port for the exploit. I managed to patch the NOR using the hdd method, no luck changing the port to 001 using the usb method.

    Now I am trying to dump the NOR, both usb and hdd methods say the dump has been successful, only to discover that the usb method leaves no file and the hdd method leaves me with a 8kb jpeg that the DumpChecker fails to check.

    I even tried everything using a local webserver.

    Do you have any advice?

    I forgot to add the firmware is 4.82, installed 10 times now. My console is a CECHL03 so definitely a NOR

    Have you already rebooted after patching the nor?
    With the hdd method you have to be sure the image is downloaded the same day. I've seen people have similar problems because of that before.

    Yes, same day. I even deleted and downloaded again just in case.

    Do I have to reboot after patching? I heard that if the patch goes wrong I may brick.

    Anyway, I rebooted and tried to install a cfw but the system doesn't see it. I assume the nor has not been patched if that happens, but maybe I'm wrong

    Okay, having the wrong date on the file is just one of the common errors I've see.
    You don't want to reboot before checking the dump but I saw that it had over a day so I thought I'd ask.
    This is what I was going to suggest trying if you had rebooted.

    And I thought I was lucky finding a 4.55 fat for £5, too good to be true lol

    Anyway, I tried again with the hdd method. Downloaded flash_482.jpg and flashed, downloaded dump.jpeg and tried to dump again. I can see the hdd light blink for 2 seconds, the "NOR Flash dump operation completed..!" message appears, I check and still the dump.jpg size is 8kb.

    At this point I don't really know what to do, I am following the guides step by step too

    That's a great deal!
    Are you using a wired connection? I'm trying to think of why it's saying completed but not doing anything.
    Maybe @esc0rtd3w can give us a hint.

    You should have seen my xbox360 for £3 lol

    Anyway yeah, if I can I always go wired. The weird thing is that it completes the dump in literally two seconds. No way a 16Mb Nor gets dumped that fast.

    usb001 is selectable for a dump path. if this is not working, try re-formatting again or try a different USB drive. i had a flash drive that would not work, in the past

    the hdd dump method for NOR is quite fast, but you will have a 16MB file after. make sure you are saving the JPG from exploit page before dumping. if the date changes from last you tried, you will have to save JPG again so the path is again correct.

    once dumped, the XMB will still show 8kb w/thumbnail, just copy this file to a usb from XMB, using TRIANGLE to copy

    it does not show 16mb?

    please post screenshots

    I was aware of the fact the dump jpg needs to be downloaded every day. I have been trying for three days now and just to be sure I am doing everything correctly I redownload the placeholder everytime before trying to dump the nor but no dice.

    The usb001 is indeed selectable but it completely freezes the console and I will have to reboot. I waited an hour before turning off the console. The usb drive led is not flashing and after the reboot I have no file on my usb drive. I really don't know what am I doing wrong.

    The attached screenshot still shows a 8kb jpeg

    i meant a screenshot of the exploit page when finished :)

    just to be clear, you have an L0x console on 4.82 OFW and you have tried using ps3xploit.com and a local webserver?

    what local webserver are you using? i have only personally tested the python one, but others have had success with other ones, and the ps3xploit site also works without issue

    you are identifying usb000 and usb001 correctly? usb000 being closest to BD Drive

    your usb drive shows up on XMB?

    still no reason for hdd method to not work...hmmmm

    i would try formatting and restoring default settings to start

    I am currently making a video lol

    EDIT

    I am using the miniweb server, downloaded all the files from this forum (version 2.0).

    The usb 000 is the one that unfortunately doesn't work. I discovered it the hard way when I had to swap the hdd and I wasn't able to connect both usb drive and controller together. I had to install the firmware by cdrw.

    I even used the ps3xploit before using my webserver and the usb drive shows up on the xbm.

    Why is everything so difficult? lol

    The video is too big, so I have to cut it to the last part.

    Great, I probably wasted a lot of time lol

    Which one should I use? Please consider I used the ps3xploit website as well. In the meanwhile I will try a system restore

    i would just reformat that thing and restore default settings

    then set homepage to either blank or ps3xploit NOR dump page (http://ps3xploit.com/dumper/index_nor_hdd.html), then open fresh browser, use hdd method and save JPG, init, dump

    it should work fine

    if for some reason it does not work, i will direct you to try a beep test html to verify we have execution

    Just to be sure can you tell me which one should I select? I already went for option 5 but maybe it's not the right one. I also selected option 6 after that

    you can also trigger that in XMB from System menu

    when it boots, it should say Sony Make Believe. then verify you have no data or accounts...its now clean :)
