How to reinstall 3.55 Kmeaw CFW
How to reinstall 3.55 Kmeaw CFW –
Been running 3.55 Kmeaw it since it came out. Last night I updated MultMman via network and now when I boot I get this error so I want to try to reinstall it.
Do I need to install 3.55 OFW first or can I just reinstall Kmeaw? Will I lose my data on the HDD? Thanks.
Well i said screw it and tried to reinstall 3.55 OFW via the recovery menu from USB. Now it is stuck at 99%.
I'm leaning to my HDD being jacked, I have a spare at work I will grab tomorrow and try that I guess. I'm afraid to power down my PS3 though being stuck at 99%.
Another update not that anyone seems to care. Lol
I reset the console stuck at 99% several times. It restarts the install process and always freezes at 99%. I have the HDD in The PC riunning the mfgs diagnostic tool (Samsung) and so far it has found a few bad sectors. Gonna grab the stock HDD tomorrow and try that out. Good news is that it does not seem like its totally bricked yet since everytime i reboot it at least tries to reinstall the update.
Feel free to throw out any thoughts you may have. At this point I don't really care if I lose all my data since its easy enough to reinstall and i have my saves backed up, just want to get it up and running again!
Best option is to go through the recovery menu, and select all of these in order, and re-entering recovery EVERY TIME after each step:

It WILL delete everything during step 2, but it will guaranteed work!!
Well, ran some tests on my HDD and had some corrupt sectors. Popped the original HDD in, formatted it, and the firmware installed no problem. Good to go.
