ehh how have i managed t end up on 3.66--trying bluray bypass
ehh how have i managed t end up on 3.66--trying bluray bypass –
ok long story short,2 ps3s 1 works but drive none responsive-would let me install cfw and pkgs but wouldnt let me run the pkgs or loaders ,ps3 2 ylod--drive mint--both uk 60gb machines
anyways figured id remarry new drive to old machine after some reading,then realised id need some form of dongle
so i saw the bluray bypass firmware and thought id have a play with that and see if my firmware wasnt installing something properly,anyway i tried KMEAW+BDB+SDC+3.55+FW thru xmb but no dice,so tried recovery,just locked up after a bit
booted back to xmb
after more reading i figured id have a go at qa flag downgrade,nothings happening,try recovery and it says the firmware file over 3.55 blah bla,nowt happening,figured id try xmb goes to system settings and im somehow on 3.66,ive not downloaded a 3.66,not connected to net im completley baffled here,i got the link from here and no bad comments saying it was iffy,i really dont know how this has happened,
not sure if its relevant but i still have all the fba rogeros and such showing up in xmb--cant launch just goes to black screen
any ideas,have i loaded some sort of spoofer into this,or has someone stuck a 3.66 file in something
id really appreciate some ideas here,cheers guys
Ummm did you download a spoofed 3.55 firmware that says 3.66? If that is the case as far as i know the only why to downgrade is via recovery.
Don't Feed the Trolls.
no not that im aware,just the files in the pack mentioned above,it doesnt recodnise any updates in xmb at the mo,and in recovery it just hangs while searching for update,im well puzzled here too
have you tried service mode with a dongle?
Don't Feed the Trolls.
aaarrrgh,i decided to to a system restore from recovery menu and now i just get a looping blue menu telling me system settings are corrupt and press x to format and restore,but that just keeps looping around,
im completley blagged here--have i fecked the damn thing
Firmware before this happened.
Without those 2 pieces of info, you won't be able to get good help.

You cannot run any pkg without a working and married drive, this is why you couldn't QA flag your PS3. You have to downgrade via service mode.
As for that blue screen, I have no idea what it could be, maybe you could make a picture of it?
Also, if recovery menu asks for 3.55 or higher, you installed a 3.55 FW spoofed to 3.66, which isn't a problem.

PS2 Slim SCPH-70004 - FMCB 1.8b
ok seems i may have had a brick of sorts,booted into recovery,put official 3.55 ofw on a freshly formatted usb stick,and tried updating thru there ,after what seems like an age it detects the update and attempts it,it then gets to 77 percent and errors out with 8002f14e,which i believe is a hard ware error,which would tell me that my logic board is fried-what threw me off was folk saying pkgs wouldnt run on faulty hardware,id taken this to mean they wouldnt install or run,wheras i can install them fine-means i swapped lasers for naught tho lol
right if i could ask for a little help here,im not even sure the drive in this machine is the right drive for the console originally,but i do have a know working one(logic board) so i can remarry assuming i can get out of this loop
what is the service mode jig i need,ive read that a psp can be used,but i dont have one,
.my plan of action so far is get a firmware installed on this thing so i can access xmb again--will try a brb 3.55,then i need to downgrade to 2.30(i think)but im sort of lost here now--im not one who enjoys asking for help,but im lost here could somebody tell me what i need/need to do to get this machine running-official or modded im not really fussed id just like it working
EDIT:ok getting exactally the same result with the bluray bypass firmwares gets to same point and same error code
just read elseware i can use android phone for service mode,is this right--ok after more reading it appears my phone isnt supported
all help appreciated
is it worth me getting a jig,since i can even install any sort of update at the moment,there all failing
