All apps stuck on black screen. help?
All apps stuck on black screen. help? –
Ok so I pulled my dusty old PS3 out after leaving it alone for almost a year, tried running my PS3key on it again and got frustrated (stopped working which is why I put it away) and then proceeded to check online for new hacks that might make my jailbreaking a bit easier.
Came across the new CWF stuff and since I dont use PSN at all that seemed like a fine idea to me, settled on the kmeaw 3.55 CFW and got that installed successfully and it seems work just fine. I can install packages and see my homebrew alright, and its understandable that i'll need to update all the homebrew i have (kept erroring upon load)
Whats got me frazzled is that with the updated homebrew like PS3OpenFTP and the new Gaia manager etc, they all get stuck on a black screen and dont do anything. did i miss something? is there some kind of diagnostic process I can follow?
Point me in some direction so i can try to get this running! I'm super savvy and patient so please feel free to send me to any already made tutorials i haven't yet found
Thanks in advance for your guys help!
Sounds like you didn't do the patchers. Save yourself some trouble on hunting them down because they are older and probably alot of the links will be down. Try installing 3.55 Rebug and also the updates posted on this site Codename: REBUG . This has everything you need as far as the firmware goes in one update package. after you install the CFW and the updates then run Rebug Selector (included in the firmware) and you'll show as being on 3.73. Also if you do the updates you'll have access to ReActPSN which is great for loading up psn games. You'll be a lot better off in the long run if you do this
Since you say you've been gone for a while I should probably tell you not to install the TB firmware from that site. It is only for the True Blue dongle. It won't work without it. There is also a version on there that supports the installation of Linux, but you should probably just stick with the main release and updates. Good luck
awesome thanks a ton, ill give it a try and report back
ok so just making sure i chose the right one cus it didnt work. running the rebug patch did the same thing the other homebrew apps are doing. stuck on a black screen, have to reboot the PS3 to get it to do anything.
is this an update only? ill try looking more to find a full install or something
bah silly me
rebug PUP file lower on the page.
this is just a patch and will keep kmeaw functionality or is it a CFW replacement?
that is not the right one. that is an update only. You need to install the main firmware first here . I had to install mine from the recovery menu (turn off console, hold down power button until it beeps, beeps again, and beeps twice and shuts off. let it completely power down, and hold the power button down again until it beeps, beeps and beeps 3 times) You're going to have to get the updates on that site as well. the current version is I think. After that then you want to make sure your version spoofer and updates are all current. Everything you need is on that first site I linked you to
Edit: Sorry took the direct link down, but you can find it from the official site I posted earlier in this thread
This is an overly enhanced CFW based off of a good percentage of KMEAW. It is going to end up replacing the KMEAW you have now but doesn't lose any functionality. It adds a ton of them though
