    Hi, I tried to install CFW (rebug) On Super Slim Model CECH-4003A with HFW using flsh.hex for NOR (i thought maybe it'll work :D) and i think i brick it, when i turn it on it shows red light then i press the power button it shows green light and start running for seconds then it shutdown, i can't go to recovery mode to install the original OFW cause the PS3 won't let me it shutdown instantly.. is there any fix for that please :(

    Yes you bricked it and there's no fix. Apparently you didn't read the warning for supported models on the flasher writer webpage. Good news is that nowadays you can get another used ps3 for dirt cheap (usually under $50 on craigslist or ebay).

    There's nothing you can do right now with your bricked PS3 superslim.

    Remember, always RTFM before jailbreaking it!

    This what happens when you don't read the instructions carefully, now you just have a 1.8Kg paperweight.

    You are not the first doing that mistake, and certainly you won't be the last, don't bother with a Hardware Flasher, this brick is inreversible.

    The recent Syscon keys has been discovered, so models newer than 2500 Series will have a chance to get CFW in the near future, but for now you'll have to accept responsibility for your mistakes, and learn with them, next time read the instructions carefully, and do some research before doing something you don't feel comfortable doing it.

    Chance of unbricking, for a advanced user, perhaps its reversible, but for the average joe, no chance, beside if he was cautious about it and bothered to read the warnings, the situation could have been avoided.

    His only luck will be if he has any experience on using a hardware flasher, but judging by the situation, I don't see any experience leading with hardware modifications, although i am not judging, so he is better off giving to someone with more experience or just get a fresh board, and don't repeat the mistake, but of course, we all do mistakes and learn though it.

    Yep

    N.B.: a hardware flasher isn't needed for eMMC. Just an hardmod.

    @littlebalup are you referring to using just an sd card to dump and flash the Emmc like on Wiiu? Would be interesting to see. If I could get my hands on one I’d try it. Hell I might buy one just to brick it and see if I could fix it. Are the current tools able to do this?

    This is why hen is a thing.You don't need cfw now to run homebrew if your PS3 isn't compatible with cfw.Where you trying to brick your system anyway already aware of anoughter way of running homebrew,or did you not know about hen's existence?

    Yes. A microSD to SD card adapter, some wires and an external 3v power supply. Just follow the link given few post above for diagram and instructions. My dedicated software tool is not finalized yet but any raw disk reader can be used (HxD can do it).

    No, for NAND it's totally different and requires hardware flasher.

    Yea thanks man. I’ll keep my eye open for a cheap super slim with emmc. I have everything else already. Would be cool if we could get this going and get a guide up for this. Maybe help with your tools too?
