    I´ve followed the guide until step 8.
    When I run FSM it just beeps three times and boots into XMB mode again.
    Now I´m not sure what my options are.
    Is it possible to flash back my DEX.NORBIN to console. I haven´t booted it yet.
    Log from FSM:
    firmware version detected: 0x8aac (35500)
    SUCCESS: read EPROM
    ERROR: failed to write to EPROM
    ERROR: SS EPROM write error: 80010505, mode: ff
    factory/service mode failure!


    Please advice.

    I want to avoid data loss during FSM flashing. If I replace the HDD just for the flashing process, will my other HDD work again with all the data accessible? Thanks.

    if you make it to Rogero & you get out of factory mode & you try to update to lower cfw from xmb ( cfw 3.55 kmeaw) it will give you red screen when updating. redo the factory mode but this time place kmeaw 3.55 in the root of flashdrive instead of rogero. my ps3 was then able to complete the update process. after that do the Dehash tutorial.

    Always risk semi-brick if you didnt QA on cex beforehand.

    Now I'm on DEX 4.21 and have a little afraid to go back to CEX because I've done conversions from REBUG 3.55.2 OTHEROS++ (update package 0.7) without wipe my linux region and never use qa_flag.pkg. I have my CEX NOR backup, 355 downgrader PUP, OFW 355 DEX PUP, ROGERO DEX 355, I know how to write to flash with multiman but I don't want to (semi)brick my PS3. And don't want to erase my HDD (because of linux) using FSM method..

    if someone was successful conversion from a similar configuration?

    I think to use 999 downgrader from Rebug after write CEX.NOR with MM from Rogero 3.55 and install 999 downgrader from recovery. (of course, if the console boot up)

    ask for suggestions
