    So I am trying to fix a 8002F2C5 error using an E3 flasher and this guide here: http://blog.jesusanc...ix356SwapHDDENG
    But in order for it to work, you need to be able to get a flash backup. But as far as I can tell, E3 only lets you do that when you are at the XMB, which I can't get to. Is there any other way to get the flash backup?

    Or is there a way to get a ps3 to think that a hard drive is the original one it had?
