    I'm not sure what to do, I have a NAND console and there's conflicting answers on google.

    Have you ever backed up your NAND or used a custom firmware on the system previously?

    I think you might be SOL.

    Maybe search / post about it on psx-scene specifically. They're more knowledgeable about that stuff. I'm not optimistic though.

    E3Flasher is the way to go in my opinion. Depending on your model you may or may not have to solder anything, but even when you do it's nothing major. The added benefit is that you can run Dual Firmware if you keep the kit connected.

    i believe you need a TSOP clip but I'm not positive. NAND afaik requires some type of soldering.
