3.55 CFW corrupted data?
3.55 CFW corrupted data? –
i installed a backup manager/file manger on my 3.55 CFW and it didnt work so i deleted it, but it didnt delete and all it did was leave a app that is corrupted and it wont delete, how should i get it off ??
delete dev_hdd0/game/GAIA.... or dev_hdd0/game/OMAN..... or dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608 depending on what it was. I'm not 100% on the actual folder name for the first two, but they start with those letters. 1st is Gaia Manager, 2nd is Open Manager, and 3rd is multiMAN.
If that doesn't work and you still get a ghost icon, then you need to trigger your PS3 to reindex the database. You can do that from the recovery menu
thank you. but my homebrew app that did that was open manager and it wasnt in my file manger as OMAN, it wasnt in there, if i trigger my ps3 to reindex the data base will it mess my CFW or version of my ps3?
What it does is rescan your various folders like /game /theme, your savegame folder, trophies, etc. There was an error somewhere when you deleted it and the info in the database file wasn't updated properly. The only thing that's a little annoying about it is if you've sorted your PSN content items into folder categories, you'll have to do it again but it doesn't mess with anything else. You just have to do it from the recovery menu. Turn off your ps3, hold the power button down until your ps3 turns on then back off. Wait a few seconds, then hold the power button again until it asks you to plug in your controller. It will do a cycle of beeps and takes a few seconds to come up. You want to do the option talking about reindexing. Don't mess with the other options
only thing I have to say is be very weary of using recovery menu options. The 2 times I've tried 2 different options on 2 different ps3s it left them worse off then they were to begin with. Recovery mode is a last resort only in my opinion.

It's safe and as far as I know the only way to get rid of ghost icons that won't delete through the xmb without opening up the database file in a hex editor and deleting it by hand, but that's a little complicated for a lot of people. That's why I said to only run the option that says to rebuild/reindex the database
i went into recovery mode and clicked rebuild the data base and the ghost icon is still there, should i try rebuilding the data base again? any other time i deleted any homebrew apps they delete just fine im not sure why there was an error in deleting open manger.
It should have fixed it. It's possible you may be experiencing early stages of a hard drive failure. How old is the drive and do you keep your PS3 in a well ventilated area? Does your fan on your PS3 work well and it's free from dust? I would say to go ahead and reinstall the app, then try to delete it from the XMB by selecting it, pressing triangle then delete
well i just got the ps3 last tuesday and its an 80GB hardrive fat and the fan works well bc the ps3 never gets hot or overheated, the ps3 is in a tv stand next to a 250GB fat that gets very hot that has a lot of dust on it, thats the one i use to do mw2 CL's and slim and the stand has 3 levels , its on the bottom level and it doesnt have any dust, yet.. but when i delete other homebrew they delete fine.... if the hardrive does fail, and i have to get another, will it update to the current firmware? or mess with my CFW?
That's the original drive. I know a lot of the phats had overheating problems. You should try to reinstall the app, then delete again. If that doesn't work and reindexing/rebuilding the database didn't work, then there's probably some damaged sectors on the drive. You can try to recover and still use the drive, but it would have to be checked for errors and reformatted. But if you do have the extra cash and can afford it, you can grab a 1TB drive from Amazon.com for around $100 or less. If you do end up replacing the drive, you'll just need the 3.55 firmware pup on a thumb drive so you can reinstall the firmware after swapping
