    Hi .just got this console in for repair .im very good with repairing actual hardware faults but never worked on motherboards /pcb before
    After a Google search I've seen various reasons what may cause this fault but not sure what the code means .i have no history of this console so not sure what caused it.anyway question is is it worth the time repairing this ?what would I need ? I have knowledge of ttds and R4 cards so assuming it just needs a modded card placed in when booted up ? Any advice be great or a link to a video that I could follow if it's worth doing

    This error corresponds to "NAND not found"...

    I thought the blue screen was giving you advice on how to die.

    No, your internal NAND chip has been disconnected or fried.

    The blue screen of death can also be caused by the corruption of FIRM0 and FIRM1.

    Looks like the classic GW brick screen, yet bootrom error could be caused by other things too. You would need a NAND backup and flash it back via a hard mod, soldering a few wires to the MB and a SD card.

    You're probably better off selling the parts. If you don't have a nand backup, you might as well purchase a new one.
