3.55 kmeaw - Recovery mode loop. is there a way out?
3.55 kmeaw - Recovery mode loop. is there a way out? –
Hi, i am a new member here and could use some help.
I was on first on 3.41 with the Ps3Break dongle and was currently on 3.55 kmeaw dongle free.
still have the dongle around (ps3break 1.1)
a couple of days ago i was playing and the game froze., after that i could no longer access xmb
and went to the black screen that says connect ps3 pad and press ps button.
now its on a loop. i tried the recovery file option and all the other options and still nothing.
also tried the update again to the 3.55. it says preparing and goes to 100% but the it reboots to
the same screen.
Is there a way out? i appreciate any help. thank you
Thats really odd. you formatted the HDD too? are you certain the hard drive didn't die on you? can you try another?
Yes.. i forgot to say i had changed it and was playing with a 500gb hdd. but i already tried another hdd, a new formated hhd and ever the old ps3 hdd and nothing.
always the same screen.
Can you enter FSM? if so try installing the firmware from there.
that's the menu with the 6 options right?
also tried that
Factory Service mode is quite different from Recovery mode.

I have the Ps3break v1.1 dongle. will that work?
and if so what do i need to the dongle?
does it finish the update and then loop? or does it stop at a certain percent?
From what I read above. You said you went to update again from the Recovery mode? Yes / No? And what was it that you used for the update?
Was it the Same CFW? or Just plain 3.55?
If so, then redoing the same firmware doesn't get all inner flash/registry.
I have a suggestion. Go to OFW 3.55 boot that up and check it. If all is OK then Redo your CFW.

It says this:
Preparing to update...
Do not turn off your system.
After preparation has completed, the system will restart
goes to 100%
reboots and it goes to the same menu.
connect controller and press PS button
