BRICKED downgrading to 3.41 from 3.55
BRICKED downgrading to 3.41 from 3.55 –
sorry new to this game if this post is in the wrong place my bad but maybe someone can help me fix this problem i have. i tried downgrading my CECHE01 80gig ps3 and bricked it. i was an idiot and i didnt want to wait to install the files on the jailbreak dongle so i put in a usb with the downgrade .pup and the l2diag thing just like in the tutorial but i did it with out the jailbreak dongle i just installed it from the recovery menu i believe its called where you hold the power button till it turns off then hold it again till it beeps twice. and now i get solid green light yellow for a second and then blinking red. is there any coming back from the mess up ive done or is it completely cooked. i read on some forums there is a way to do it with a mem stick pro duo cause that light blinks before it goes to yellow and blinking red but no one actually says how or i cant find it. also read that if you use the on/off board from a different ps3 and the power supply from a different ps3 and a hard drive from a different ps3 with 3.55 on it then it will boot up and i can recover it then put my original stuff back in. ive tried everything i can find on the internet aside from the switching parts cause i dont have a second ps3. CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!
Take your HDD out and format it. When you put it back in it should ask for firmware 3.55 to continue. Put 3.55 on a memory stick and follow the onscreen instructions.
i tried that and same exact problem nothing has changed. took the hard drive out and ran it through a kill program a full-zero thing and then put it back in and nothing, same problem. im pretty sure the hard drive works fine cause if i connect it to my computer its recognized no problem and works so.
Tried recovery mode again to see if it'd go in? How about actual service mode?
be sure to put it in service mode before downgrading next time! lol im sure you realize that now tho.
after you get back to 3.55 search the forums and make sure you have the 3.55 downgrader diag files along with the 3.41 pup(which is actually *****). after downgrading to that re-enter service mode and use the 3.55 diag file along with 3.15ofw pup. exit service mode with the provided file 2 and update via xmb to 3.41 ofw. then you can go again via recovery to hermes 3.41. you can prob go directly from 3.15 to hermes but i have the same ceche01 and this is how i did it so i can assure you that it works.
hope you get ur system working again bro
ya tried recovery mode doesnt do anythign if i hold the power button or not still get the same problem and i cant go into service mode cause it doesnt even look for something in the usb I THINK because the jailbreak dongle doesnt even light up.
good advice thanks but do you know anyway to get it up and working again abck to 3.55 right now im just getting blinking lights and cant do anythign about it
just a wild ass guess here: make sure you have the downgrade file on dongle then try different usb slots. i would suggest the one furthest to the right. i dont kno
also im pretty sure the "blinking red light" was what happened on the waninkoko fats. try the lv2diag file 2 on usb in the right port too. thats all i got, chesh def knows alot more
ouch, well thanks for letting us know. I am now going to wait for my Jailbreak Dongle. IF nothing works, send it to Sony :/
ya tried all that cant do anything with a usb the dongle and the usb stick dont even light up i dont think the ps3 even knows its there. starting to think i screwed up the nand kinda sucks really hope someone had this same problem and fixed it hahaha
