Alright, here's the skinny, Got a CECHB (20gb) model here that I had initially rescued, and just set aside. It had 3.50 OFW then. More recently I was prepping it to run some of the 4.* CFW's, and everything turned on and seemed fine. However, I would then get an error around 65% of the way through, and it would fail in this constant update loop. Upon reading about this, it was indicating a failed bluray drive. Checked the ribbon cables, and the like. Followed iFixit's troubleshooter to determine that basically the drive's logic board is hosed. SO I know about that. However, in my attempts to try and at least get it operational with a firmware that was supposed to bypass the BD drive check, I now get a new error code, that indicates a corrupted NAND. Oh, boy... So, I ask you... what are my options? I do have a basic soldering iron and some tools for that, true. But I had never soldered on an actual console before. I would imagine I need something that could allow me to reflash the NAND fresh and restore it somehow. For obvious reasons I don't want to simply submit it to $ony and pay them $200 to get one that's been OFW'd out, if I even get the same model back. I also am wagering I'll at least need a new bluray board, and somehow be able to remarry the drive, assuming I don't need a whole new drive altogether. So, about how much is this all going to run me if I do it myself? Or is there someone capable of doing what's necessary to bring this 20gig back from the dead, for a reasonable price?
