try a HDD from another non 256MB nand ps3. its so sad that sony saved thier few cents by reducing nand size just to keep breaking hdd upgrades and now it even hits moders
Ok I'm gonna give this one more try...tried the E3 card to try downgrade but can not get the ps3 into recovery, can get ps3 into service mode and chose number 6 INSTALL firmware but that didnt work either..just gonna dig out another Hard drive and try
if you downgrade from 3.55 kmeaw than you need to downgrade two times after another because the update still wants 3.56fw. you need first the (in)official modded 3.41pup for fw 3.55 and the lv2diag for 3.55. after that downgrade you need to downgrade one more time but this time with the psjb-team modded pup and go to fw 3.41. after that you can upgrade again to 3.55. did it yesterday successfully...
btw, you don't need to go first to official fws. i flashed waninkoko v2 over 3.41hermes. it is maybe much safer but not needed.
