    Hi all,

    I have a problem and I hope someone can help me.
    I am trying to jailbreak my ps3 and following this guide:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/ps3homebrew/wiki/ps3xploit_nor

    All steps are going ok, up to:
    "Patching NOR Flash memory". When I click that, the system freezes after 1-2 seconds, including the moving wallpaper. After 5 minutes I have to press the power-button a long time and restart to get out of that freeze.

    Things I have done & tried:
    - I have installed the HFW 4.84 twice before starting to patch.
    - All MD5-checks verify
    - The USB is fat32 and accessible
    - I've tried patching over the internet (ps3xploit) as well as local running my own miniweb-server.
    - I have set the homepage (either ps3xploit or miniweb) as current homepage, then quit the webbrowser (circle) and reloaded it.
    - Initializing goes fine :)

    An alternative was to go to the nor_hdd page.. but then I get a warning that it's specifically for 4.82 and not 4.84.

    I hope someone has some suggestions for me on how to proceed.

    Some info:
    Model: CECHK04, Fat model.
    Current firmware: 4.84 HFW

    Ok, final update: the ps3 kept freezing, until I tried the HDD-version of the NOR-patch. Downloaded the .jpg and after that everything went smoothly. Hopefully this helps someone in the future. Thread can be closed.
