Ok I have a 60g with 3.15 fw and a 40g with 3.50 fw. Both have the same exact problems. Everytime I try to update them to 3.55 they give me either 8002f2c5 or 8002f225
during update. I have tried reformatting both hdd in ntfs with my computer . I have tried getting them into FSM but for some reason neither will go into fsm using my E3 reader. They both just turn on and never go into fsm. The reader works fine Ive tested it on several other systems. I have tried loading the FW from both the recovery menu and get 8002f2c5, and both from the XMB and stop at 4% with a 8002f147 error.
I have done alot of searching but nothing is working. Usually these errors are associated with the 3.56 update issue but systems firmwares are below that issue so Im stumped.
I will paypal $20 to who ever can solve this issue or give point me to a fix. Im a man of my word so if you figure it out I WILL pay. Both ps3,s need to be sold and will bring alot more money up and running right.
