    HOW I UNBRICKED MY PS3

    1.Download ps3jig for the psp(must be a modded psp) and some files that are used for downgrading lv2_diag.self file1 and lv1_diag.self file 2
    and last the ofw3.55

    2.turn the power off on your ps3 install ps3jig to psp/game run ps3jig on the psp

    3.turn on your power to the ps3 and push the power buton follwed by the eject button your psp will have some stuff on the screen
    and say usb detached.the ps3 should shut off.

    4.then put lv2_diag(file 1)and ofw3.55 on a root of a usb stick

    5.put your usb stick in the far right usb slot of ps3 and turn on the ps3.if you have a light on youe usb stick you will see its working!!!
    when its done your green power light will be flasing again but its not shutting off on its own. hold the power button till the ps3 shuts down!

    6.take out your usb stick and copy lv2_diag.self(file 2).turn on your ps3 you should b on the xmb but in factory service mode shut it down again!

    7.put usb stick back in the ps3 and turn it on.it will shut off!!!

    8.now your out of factory service mode and should use restore mode and reinstall ofw3.55 followed by which ever firmware you choose!!

    I don't think this works for Waninkoko bricks but it might work for those that bricked the Newer 3.50+ (Non downgradable) consoles when they tried to downgrade them.

    Waninkoko v1 Bricks will probably require this method :

    I guess if you have a bricked console you have nothing to lose.

    if you put the lv2diag.self file 1 with ofw3.55 on a root of a usb it should reflash the nand or at least the log said it did i would post it but i deleted it like a dumbass! someone with the winnikoko brick try it and let me know. i posted this on another web site and people r saying it fixd crashes from updating and other but no comfirm on the winnikoko brick

    where did you get the lv1_diag.self file 2 from or do you have to create it somehow with the step1 file?

    all the filesz i used are in the link in the above post. the diag.self files are used for downgrading and keeping blue ray playback intact.just download the link and u will see the two different lv2diag.self file 1 gos with the official firmware 3.55 and then the second lv2diag.self will takw you out of factory service mode
