Need help to remarry BD drive om PS3 4.4 firmware
Need help to remarry BD drive om PS3 4.4 firmware –
Hi guys, my apologies if this question has been asked here.
A friend of mine asked me to help him to fix his PS3. His BD control board is failing, and he bought a new drive including a new control board for it.
I have never used a PS3 in my life, so this is all new for me. As far as I understand the control board has to be remarried to the PS3 motherboard. I have been looking up info on the net but I am kind of drowning in it. At this moment this PS3 has a 4.40 official firmware on it.
Is it possible someone could guide me and help to remarry the drive if this is even possible? I also do not own any jig usb's.
Looking forward for any replies.
The tools that people use to remarry the drive only run on custom firmware. If the console is on 4.40 OFW, the only way to get it onto custom firmware is to downgrade with a hardware flasher to 3.55 OFW. Then install a 3.55 based CFW since the tools to remarry only run on 3.55 CFW.
Thanks, so basically I can either get a hardware flasher or wait untill there will be a tool to remarry the BD on the OFW 4.40?
Controller board for blueray is not easy to break down, try switch laser lens from new blueray drive to old blue ray drive.
if that is the case u don't need to remarry the drive.
Basically, when the drive started failing in the first place, we bought a complete new drive including the control board.
I switched the original board to the new bd drive and it does not work, the drive does not even spin. If I use the new control board with the new bd drive, the disk spin, but are not recognised, that would be the remarry issue. I concluded that the original control board is failing, am I correct?
What model Ps3 does he have? You should look around for downgrade service instead of buying a flasher. Thats how I got my ps3 downgraded to 3.55 by sending my ps3 to someone who does downgrading but it will only work with certain ps3 models. search google for Ultimate ps3 downgrade guide. I got my ps3 slim back in a week. It's on Ps3hax site. They might even remarry the drive for u.
