Firmware 32 Horror Story(Black Screen). Don't fret people..Just fall back!
Firmware 32 Horror Story(Black Screen). Don't fret people..Just fall back! –
So! I saw 32 sitting there and I decided to put it on my PS2 CC2.0 v15. Anyway....it was an almost shit my pants moment. Having read about the difficulties with black screens, I didn't even test my PS2 before reseting three time to get into recovery mode. I popped in the 32 disc, and..........BLACK SCREEN. I started to panic. I immediately restarted.....and BLACK SCREEN. Now I'm about to start screaming/crying/throwing tantrum. I hadn't tested my PS2 for at least 2 weeks, so now I start worrying that my install is to blame. OH NO, I'm going to have to open my PS2 again. Opening my PS2 is NOT something I like to do. 32 tiny wires is something I don't want to mess with on my weekend.
Anyway, I rush to the forum and I read it might work to FALL BACK to 29, as 30/31/32 is buggy ( NOW YOU TELL ME/so thats what the black screens are). I put my old 29 disc back in, after putting to recovery mode, (3 Resets) as my regular booting is now 100% broken (black screen.) Anyway, the cd boots up and I'm able to recover.
People....If you run into trouble with 30/31/32, just fall back to 29. I got really jumpy as I had not tested my PS2 in weeks, and immediately thought it was wires coming loose. Alas it was the firmware, thank you lord
Just wanted to report in, after almost almost having shit my pants.
