Black Screen When I Try Boot Anything
Black Screen When I Try Boot Anything –
I'm new to all things PS3
I picked up a PS3 cheap on ebay with the intention of Jailbreaking it, it was on 4.46 Ofw without a blu ray drive in it, after a bit of research and a lot of swearing I found out I would need it downgrading, now, not being the cleverest of chaps I got it done by a chap who knows about these sort of things and am now runnnig Rogero 4.46.
Here lies the problem
I've followed a few tutorial regarding multiman etc and while they appear to install fine whe I try and run for example multin man I am met with a black screen and a lot more swearing
Could someone possibly please point me out to where I'm going wrong?
you need a blueray drive , and remarry it to your ps3 board

I've been told that a remarry isn't possible on the 4.46 cfw I have or am I really just being stupid?
you need alogic board that works with your ps3(40gb and 60gb ps3 logic boards won't work) , and then downgrade to 3.55 (since you are on cfw 4.46 , it easy to go down either by installing the pup downgrader , or just use the qa flag extra
Brilliant! I'll get on it straight away, guy I got it off took logic board out of an 80gb one
Thanks for the help!
I would suggest you read THIS FIRST! http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/Remarry_Bluray_Drive
'Cause your gonna need some things, things which you likely may not have... Like:
A FSM Jig (i.e. A Factory Service Mode Jig - e.g. a PS3 Grove / Jailbreak etc... etc...
A BlueRay Movie that matches your Region... A/B/C to finalize the marriage process.
Taken from the Wiki:
Remarry guide for 3.55 firmware
1. Have the console on a working 3.55 firmware
2. Download the Remarry files (remarry-3.55.rar) and unpack to root of USM Mass Storage device.
The following line is already changed from 1 to 0:
# Install Systemsoftware
# 0 = 実行しない
# 1 = 実行する
This will make sure the drive init PUP is not installed, thus preventing RLOD because of syscon hashes on downgraded consoles.
3. Download official firmware <=3.30 as drive init PUP and put it root of USB Mass Storage device
Content of USB Mass Storage device should be thus be:
MD5: C48E5EBFC00ABD89094CB73A2B0BEA59 - SHA1: D229AC694910272DDEA9276B9FD4A2664800638C - CRC32: C2D0A2B0 - CRC16: 5327
MD5: 9E3C9024E9243478D21C78E1C9DF2376 - SHA1: 922EA202CA2EA36EBF2B5054605E17409B9A56E6 - CRC32: 93F18A95 - CRC16: EA0D
MD5: 33E8D3C12349CFD203930FD0C237054D - SHA1: F660FD6EBEB12DC7F52B4E707A1F0D1BD05DF9F3 - CRC32: 85701A9B - CRC16: B75B
4. Put the service mode JIG/dongle/PSGrade into port 0 (closest to the reader) and get into factory service mode.
5. Put the created USB Mass Storage device from step 3 into port 0 (closest to the reader) and run.
Drive Init Executing means it is starting the remarry process
Drive Init Failed with big pink letters 'NG' (No Good!) means the process failed. Most likely solved by fixing the communication issue with the drive.
6. After you run the initial remarry process, do not take it out of factory service mode.
7. Put a BD movie disc in and run it on the PS3. (This restores your DRL files!)
8. Then you can take it out of factory service mode.
9. Launch as normal.

I've collect all my stuff together, E3 card reader etc, can successfully get into FSM but when I attempt any sort of remarry I'm get stuck on [Drivie Init] Executing
I've tried a few logic boards (BMD-006) so I'm thinking it's either that I don't have the actual Drive or a problem with the ribbon is faulty or is there something else I could be missing?
