i have no idea then, man. sorry - maybe the BDD does have something to do with it.. i'm new to all of this
You tryed your best! and i apreciate it!
im gona search the hell out of it and see what i come up with.
I don't get why you would update to 3.55, especially with a broken BDD?
Well, i got the ps3 on 3.50, it had a broken blu ray drive, the laser is dead, the board is fine. homebrew works as long as the board is hooked up. (this was true for 3.41)

anyways, usps got their shit together, and now has my dongle. so tomorrow ill be going down to 3.41 and see what happens..
btw, after tons of google searches, i found no answers to why 3.55 goes to black screen, and ive found a few people who've had the same problem as me..
I have the exact same problem with 2 ps3's!! Did you manage to get it working?
Maybe 3.55 has additional diagnostic checks when running code?
Try this, run 3.55 official and try running Home, see if that gives a black screen.
yea i am having the same problem too on my fat ps3 with broken bd drive. ca n i downgraade to 3.41 with jsut a usb drive?
ok thanks for your reply i tried yoursugestion, installed OFW 3.55 using recovery menu. formated it and made a psn account no problems

now both these ps3s we got back from YLOD so not really expecting them to last that long anyway just wanted to getthe snes emu going lol
but inshort im wondering did we mix the bluray drives or daughterboards up when we had them appart! Am i right in thinking this would cause this behaviour??
sooo. this currlenty is not working with broken BD roms? is there anyway we can run homebrew on a ps3 with a broken bdrom drive? so the PS# will not boot anything with a busted bdrom not even home ?? what is home anyway i jsut gota ps3 and im new to it. I can successfy get the cfw runing with the geodot patch BUt its all Black screen when i try to run. i have tried everyhting. anyone have any help maybe we jsut need to wait for better programming/.
Yeah, that's the behaviour of an unmatched BD-ROM. If you downgrade to 3.41 and you're still getting black screens, I'm thinking you may have mixed up the drives and/or daughter-boards.
