  1. Hello Steven

    I have tried installing the clip without extra pressure but it failed to read bios even though it was a new clip. I see people using a Glue Clamp. Do you think this will give better results?

    • i had to press it down while reading the NOR, pressure is important as the clip will not stay on the NOR chip itself.

    • you could try moving your hdd closer to the wall socket, this may fix your problem. srry i don’t understand your question

  2. Has anyone came across a problem with the bluray drive after this procedure my bluray stopped working need a fix

    • I removed the flasher from my ps3 as i needed it for downgrading other ps3’s but you can leave it in if you don’t need it anymore. leaving the flasher in your ps3 has many advantages: you can switch between official firmwware(online) and cfw..

      • yes you can. just make switches 1 and 2 are down, the rest have to be up. once you turn on ps3 you should see all blue leds light up. leave switch 3 up and the rest down and press the reset button on the flasher (right under blue leds) and within a few seconds you should see blue leds flashing back and forth confirming the system accepted your update
