Hi, so I bought an old used and abused ps3 with BR broken. I find out the BR was broken when I was tring to update its 2.53 FW to a CFW 3.55 (KMEAW), got a update error msg at 71% ... The clip of the data cord of the BR is broken. Tried the stochtape thing but didnt work. So I was in a update loop. I ve done a format to the HDD and put KMEAW on a usbstick. I go to the recovery mode, select the update menu and nothing happens. No update. So I tried a full restore, but it did not restore. And it format the HDD each time. the PS3 turn off. The HDD is working good, I connect it to my pc, I can write data on it and delete it after, juste like any external HDD.
I don't know what to do.
Model CECHE01 (fat 80gb retro)
