And then shortly afterwards Max1985 over at DemonHades has posted a link to the complete package of the previously leaked much needed files along with what seems to be a modded 'lv2diag.self' that seems to be able to finally truely 're-marry' a Blu-Ray drive board on a PS3 console!
Here is short tutorial written up by one of our valued PSX-SCENE members:
As with all new things, doing this totally at the end-user risk, we here at PSX-SCENE have not done any testing on this very risky firmware progress. -- But a couple of facts we should point out, their may be different models which will NOT work at all, due to the fact some BD Drives are designed for Dual-Eye lasers vs. Single-Eye lasers, and IDE vs. SATA drive hookup. -- Also this most likely is only designed for the FAT 256mb NAND systems, as the 16mb NOR and Slim's use a different drive board marriage system. -- And finally DO NOT TRY THIS ON v3.56 consoles, as YOU CURRENTLY CAN'T EXIT SERVICE MODE!
