Installed GeoHot, missing everything in Games XMB
Installed GeoHot, missing everything in Games XMB –
Hello all. Kinda sucks that this is my first post, but here goes. Just attempted to jailbreak my PS3 using GeoHot's method. I checked my system before hand and it said it's 3.55 FW, so I read the directions and followed along with what I needed to do. Heard the beeps and when I restarted my system, everything seems to be fine and works, but when I go to the Game part of the media bar, there's absolutely nothing that shows up. No PSN Store, no option for my USB drive, none of my PSN games, or the disc thats in the drive. What's going on? Did I miss something? Is my PS3 now broken? If so, how do I fix it? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
Enter the PS3's recovery mode and try reflashing Official Firmware 3.55.
Okay. Went into recovery mode (asks me if I wanna use HDMI for audio/video and gave me the 30 seconds thing). I just downloaded the official firmware of the Sony site and put it on the USB stick and went to system update->update via storage media and it's saying "No applicable update data was found".
Edit: Nevermind. That wasn't recovery mode. That was just the video reset. Found a quick guide on how to get to recovery/safe mode.
Needs to be in the folder structure: x:\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP
Did you put it in PS3/UPDATE/ ?
create a folder called PS3, then inside that folder create one called UPDATE, then inside that folder put the PS3UPDAT.PUP
Thanks for all that. I got back to the official firmware. I just went to the wrong mode at first. I thought I was in recovery mode when I was just in video reset mode. Gonna re-try Geohot now.
Edit: Okay, re-did Geohot and figured out what the problem was. In the directions, it said wait for a couple of beeps and the system will turn itself off. I took the "couple" literally and shut the system down myself so pretty much cut the installation off prior to it being finished. Seems to work fine now. Install packages shows up along with the rest of the game menu. Thank you for the help and sorry for being stupid. lol.

I was wondering wher u went to get the offcial firmware back and how u did it becuase im having the same problem with mine and idk how to fix it!?! if tryed Full restore of my system to taking out the hard drive and still nothing. Can u plz write back on the forum on how to fix this horrific problem!
Just googled I think Sony Playstation 3 firmware 3.55 and went right to the official Playstation website. They have it up there for people who don't have internet connections or something. Xbox 360 does the same thing. They put their firmware updates up there for people without Live or whatever, so it's not like some sort of trap or anything like that.
