    Hi there
    First I'd like to point out I'm a complete noob at this sorta thing so I understand if this is tedious to you veterans I'm trying to install CFW on my phat nand ps3 I've been following mr Mario's video which I have now seen probably isn't the best video to watch I've got as far as trying to dump the nand onto a USB however when preparing it fails at 100%
    I then noticed after that when installing the hfw in safe mode as the xmb wouldn't let me it would get to 70% and skip I've tried formatting my console and installing the hfw twice like I saw on the forum however the exploit initiation keeps failing for the dump I'm pretty lost can anyone help me?
    Cheers Dan

    Please read this guide thoroughly, for the full process on how to jailbreak your PS3 from HFW 4.84. There's been enough discussion about MrMario's YT tutorial today, so to keep things simple stick to first-hand information published by the PS3Xploit team. Hope this helps.

    Don't follow Mr mario guide. It's bricking users, because it's missing VITAL steps (like backing up your flash, and checking your files before flashing, and checking your dump after flashing before restarting, etc)

    Ask @shab about mr mario...he's one of the "victims"


    The BEST guide, is the one ON THE PS3XPLOIT SITE. it's NOT a video. It's WRITTEN and requires the ability to READ.
    It doesn't skip steps and has been written by the people that made the software and know everything about it.

    But in the end, it's your console...if you want to break it..go ahead... follow a youtube video...

    First of all, this is in the wrong section, it belongs to PS3 Jailbreak.

    Secondly, it's ok if it jumps from 70 to 100, that doesn't mean it failed. The way to check if it go installed is by successfully running the needed exploit tools. If flash dumper always fails it may mean it didn't install correctly, if you get it to work it means HFW got installed.

    If anyone knows another way to check that it may be more helpful.

    Edit: nvm thread has been moved to the right section

    requires python 2.7 to be installed (not 2.8 or higher)
    once that's done, you should be able to drag the dump onto the pyps3checker and it will produce the desired results
    EDIT: You can also "post a new thread" with the title "Please verify my dump" and a content of something like: "Hey guys, having probs getting pyps3checker working, any chance I could have someone verify my dump before I reboot?" (don't trust someone with a super low post count)
    You can usually see developer or moderator in the title on people that are trustworthy (generally).

    But do not reboot if you've flashed, and have not verified your dump. Otherwise it's a bad road ahead :)

    You might have to dump again, make sure usb is attached to ps3 when dumping (then look for dump.hex once it says completed)
    The important thing is not to reboot until you know for a fact your flash has no errors.
    and the only way to do that is to verify the dump.

    The NAND dump should be (I think) 256MB in size (compared to NOR which is 16MB) so make sure you have sufficient space on your USB drive. Also, make sure the drive is plugged into the USB port furthest to the right i.e closest to the BD drive.

    Also...nand can take a little bit to dump...i can't remember how long off hand..but someone said it was quite a while. I think it's because they have to communicate through the chip that talks to both interleaved nand chips. I could be totally wrong on that... i'm not an expert with nand stations. I'm more of a nor guy :D

    Is it possible for you to try with a different USB stick? I had a similar problem myself, and using a different USB stick resolved the issue after a succession of fails.

    No worries mate, you're still in the early stages of the jailbreak so not a lot can go wrong - just take it slowly, one step at a time and I'm sure everything will work out nicely for you and your PS3. :)
