    I have a slim CECH2501a

    I installed the E3 flasher limited correctly for the third time. I was able to update and back up my nor dump. I flashed the e3_downgrade bin turned off the system unplugged the power cable plugged it back in, put the e3 card reader in the second usb slot....however i didnt put the e3 card reader file on it.... so when i started the ps3 by pressing power and eject, it shut down after two seconds. Now when i try to start it it shuts down after 2 seconds. Can i fix this? Is that what i saved the backup dump for? Please help

    Yeah it's definitely bricked. I had this happen to me once. I had to solder a wire from the tri state on the PS3 to the SBE on the E3 Clip. After that I activated Fun Mode, and the PS3 stayed on long enough for me to flash the backup dump I made.

    So that's what you've got to do.
