Checking file system loop
Checking file system loop –
I was on Rogero 4.30 V 2.03. All my backups played fine
I updated to Rogero 4.46 V1.00 and Multiman Multiman 4.46.01 CEX. Ally my backups played fine then as well including new games
I installed my PSN games fine which were below 4gb. Then recently I tried installing a 6.5 gb PSN game. I split the single 6.5gb file on my PC using PS3 Splitter into two using 666** extension and copied it in the hdd0/packages/gamenamefolder/ using an external HDD
Multiman merged the split files into one in the hdd0/packages/gamenamefolder/
Then I could not see the pkg file in the Install package in XMB
So when to the location of hdd0/packages/gamenamefolder/ using Multiman's File Manager
Double clicked the 6.5gb and MM asked if you to quit to XMB to install. Which I said yes
I saw two files of the same name. I clicked on one of them. It started installing which took about 30 minutes. After it completed installation, I hit the circle button to go back. I saw the game icon in xmb but at that point it froze. I could neither shut down my PS3 using the controller or the Power button on the PS3. So I had to manually switch off power to the PS3
Now I am stuck in a loop of the "File system may be corrupt. Checking file system. Do you want to restore? If I choose ok, it goes back to the same message. If I choose back, it checks the file system, then the Rogero screen comes up and again goes back to the "File system may be corrupt. Checking file system. Do you want to restore?'. Tried several times but get the same "Checking file system..............". It is in a loop. How do I rectify this?
And is the 16mb NOR dump from the multiman, same as the NOR dump from the E3 flasher?
Thanks for your replies:
enter service.mode and try like that.
(boot ps3 up, then hold power til it shuts off, then hold power button until you hear 2 beeps then let go. make sure you have a wired controller or a cable for wireless.)create my friend just had this happen to him and i fixxed it this way.)
hope this helps.
The Restoring File system from Recovery Menu (Service Mode) did not work. The same thing - looping.
Tried rebuild database. Did not work either. Same loop
Tried rebuild database. Did not work either. Same loop –
Should I try to restore my PS3 system? Want to check before doing that as I am okay with deleting all data on HDD if it works, but have heard that it can semi-brick/ perma-brick the console?
Where do you heard that? For me sounds ridiculous.
BTW: mM broke fs or you have bad sectors on HDD.
Best thing to do right now is pull the HDD out of the console and clone it onto a new HDD.
The problem will only get worse and will eventually see your console freezing on the boot screen. I'm guessing it's a Slim PS3 you're talking about? Most common fault is the HDD getting bad sectors right at the beginning of the drive.

Well, I was searching google for similar problems and read it in one of the links that the PS3 full restore can cause semi-brick/ brick the console on Rogero (Sorry not perma-brick). I would go ahead and do the full restore but need to know for sure that it would not brick the console
It is a PS3 slim. I did not face any problem with the HDD previous to the install of the 6.5gb PSN game. Everything worked fine. Only during the 6.5g PSN game installation, the installation was very slow and the moment it completed, i hit back (circle) button and it froze. Manual power shut off.
I read by searching google that the PS3 HDD can be taken out and formatted to NTFS in PC and then put back in and that may solve the problem. I am trying to do that for now.
I don't want to buy another PS3 HDD, until I am sure there are bad sectors in it. Just bought 1TB internal HDD for my PC and 2TB External HDD two weeks ago
Any other suggestions or methods, please let me know
That's Safe Mode....

For those who might face a similar situation, and are ready to lose ALL data on the PS3 HDD. This is how I solved mine searching google and tortuga-cove websites
Took out the PS3 HDD by following a youtube video
Bought a 2.5 SATA Enclosure which plugs into USB port for 5 US $
Inserted/Fitted the PS3 HDD in the Enclosure (need to remove metal bracket containing four screws on the PS3 HDD) and connected to a laptop (For some reason it does not get detected on a desktop. Tried two desktops and it did not work, but laptops it worked/ got detected). Went to disk management on the PC, formatted a quick format to NTFS file system
ALSO Downloaded HDD Sentinel software on the laptop and checked for the health/ performance of the PS3 HDD and it was 100% for both health and performance. So there were no bad sectors on the PS3 HDD and the file system should have been broken by Multiman as MEMBER Berion says
Removed the PS3 HDD from the Enclosure and reconnected metal bracket. Inserted the PS3 HDD, had Rogero CFW 4.46 v1.00 (Made sure the MD5 hash was correct for the CFW on the USB before inserting into PS3) ready on the USB port. Turned PS3 on and followed instructions
P.S. I read also that you can take the PS3 HDD, remove the metal brackets and connect to the SATA ports of the PC desktop. (which requires removing the ATX cabinet and connecting inside the cabinet to the motherboard using the SATA cables)
