So I decided to go tinker with my old phat CECHE01 PS3 that was dead. I replaced its power ribbon cable and now it is working. System version is something like 4.30 IIRC. No mods, no HAN, it's a legit console that only ran OFW since day one. I want to CFW it and do all the crazy stuff a FAT BC PS3 can do! Also I want to install the Fan Utility because even though I've repasted it with quality thermal paste it still goes pretty loud even on the XMB. What do you guys recommend? I don't have a hardware flasher but is it REALLY needed? There is no other way around, even on these old NAND phat systems? Thanks in advance guys. I'm hyped!
