Hi,

I tried to JB my PS3 for the first by using Reaper mega jailbreak thread. But I ran in to some issues and I need help in a major way.

Process:

1 Initially I couldnt get e3 flasher to create nor dumps and kept getting errors. After some research I realized that I have attached nor clip in wrong direction.

2. I removed nor clip and placed it correctly. But after that my ps3 was not starting up at all. no power or anything. I figured out that in process I cracked the ribbon of power button. So after several tries I got my ps3 to power up using my PS3 controller by connecting it to my PS3 directly.

After that things went well, I finished the entire tutorial and was able to install Darknet 4.65, installed all the homebrews and I was happy. So after installing homebrews and games I turned the console off, removed nor clip/e3 flasher and reassembled my ps3 properly (without power ribbon because it is cracked) and didnt get to start it again due to holiday.

Last night when I decided to finally turn on my newly JB PS3, it is not starting at all. I know my power button's ribbon is broken so I am trying to power up using ps3 controller but nothing is happening. it is not showing any signs of life.

Can somebody tell me what is wrong with it? I dont think it is bricked because once I connected e3 flasher correctly, after few tries I was able to start my console and entire process went without any hickup but since I removed e3 flasher and reassembled it, it is not turning on at all :cry:

did you put the power supply cords back in and is it showing red light or making any beeps?

He said his cable is broken. 
You may want to use a melmeter to check if power supply is pushing any power to your mobo. You may have damaged the prongs on your mobo that are inserted in your power supply.
