Can't hack ps3 with my Droid--Help!
Can't hack ps3 with my Droid--Help! –
Been working on this for 3 days now. Need help, please?
On my Droid I've backed up current rom, wiped data, wiped cache
, installed a custom rom (CyanogenMod 6), rebooted, rebooted again, rebooted again.
I then try both Rom Manager and power/x to install the files from this page
Motorola Droid - PSFreedom Wiki
I believe I've followed the directions to the T.
On my Droid settings: version 2.2, Kernal version 22.214.171.124-gxxxxx, Mod version says CyanogenMod-6.0.0-Droid, Build Number is FRG22D
On my PS3 I triple checked that I'm on FW version 3.41.
I just can not figure out what I could be doing wrong. Thanks for any help!
Did you switch off your PS3 (remove the power cord if you have a slim)?
Then pressed Power then Eject in less than 1 second?
Yep, don't have anything else in the other usb either, it's a slim btw.

I don't have anything on this PS3 that I care about. If I do a "reset to factory defaults" will it make me update the FW right away? Cause I'm currently on 3.41 and don't want to have to update.
You want to install psfmod. You can find the download for a Motorola Droid here: http://www.klutsh.com/download/7/
It's a recovery image. So, install it just like you would Rom Manager or Amon_Ra's recovery image. Once you've got it loaded, select the PS Freedom (psfmod) option in the recovery manager and follow the onscreen instructions. Doesn't get much easier then that.
Awesome! I'll try it when I get home. I installed Rom Manager through the marketplace so I'm not clear on that.

There's a fastboot command. I believe it's fastboot flash recovery recoveryimgfile.img. If you can find the flash_image script for your phone over on the xda forums, you can do it that way too, but I had problems when I tried to help a user on a Droid Incredible. Took me the better part of the day to find the right flash_image file for him. If you just look at the latest install instructions for any of the recovery images for your phone, just follow them, but use the .img file I linked you instead.
Okay, since I have a Droid user, and probably went through the headache you are having now, I will help
Method 1 (old)
1. root your droid
2. Install Rom Manager
3. Install Clockwork Recovery Mod
4. Backup current System
5. Download the PSFreedom image zip from the wiki (there are 2 links, I made the mistake and download the wrong zip cuz they have the same file name for both link, which was confusing). You will know that you go the correct
6. Use rom manager to load the psfreedom rom, this will still let you charge the phone, but doesn't let you connect the phone to the computer to transfer data. You will know that you go the correct zip from the wiki when it takes longer than a split sec to load the rom. If it loads like in a split sec, it's the wrong download.
7. Plug phone to USB 1 of PS3.
8. On your droid there should be no USB or debug symbol on the corner (that's how you know the rom is installed)
9. power up the ps3 with the power switch or cord.
10. Press power than eject quick.
Look on the corner of the screen. 2 possibilty
1. you see the time/date
a. that is a good sign, now go see if the 2 folders are there. If not, try again.
2. you see "unknown USB device"
This is a good sign that your droid is working. You just need do the power up step again. Most likely you press the eject too early or late.
Method 2 (new and so much better).
1. download the droid image of psfmod from that link the other user post.
2. You should already have rom manager and clockwork mod installed on your droid.
3. copy the image file to your root sd card of the droid. (reload your original rom so you can transfer file from your computer to phone)
4. connect your phone to your computer (debug mode)
5. open the sdk shell app that you used to root your Droid.
6. Follow the SU, etc command link you got from the link. Something like Flash_imag blah blah.
7. If it gives you error while flashing, reboot the phone and try it again.
8. It doesn't really tell you that it's done flashing or successful, and it only takes a sec.
9. exit, and reboot phone to recovery mode.
You shoudl see title like "PSfreemdom recovery mode".
10. Go down to the last option "psfreedom setting".
11. choose your firmware, and press enter.
If you want to load a different payload, go down to the bottom and choose payload from sd or something like that.
O.K. You gave me enough to search and find. I can get around pretty good on these forum's and I'm familiar with xda forums. Thanks for the direction. Please check back after a day or so in case I'm having difficulties.
