No games / apps will run!
So I have gone through hell and back with my Phat PS3. It is a CECHA model. So here is what's going on.
I originally went to CFW when 3.55 kmeaw first came out, and I have upgraded to the newest Rogero since.
I have had YLOD twice, so if someone tells me that it may be a hardware issue related to YLOD then I won't be surprised.
Currently what happens is the system boots fine, everything works perfect ... until I try to start a game. The Blu-ray isn't working because I have jittery hands and broke the clip that holds the BR ribbon in place, so I have been working off my HDD. Whether I try to use a .pkg game, or homebrew i.e. multiMAN, the application appears to start, but then it just hangs on a black screen indefinitely and must be usually requires me to flip the power switch to turn it off.
I have tried ALL of the options in the recovery menu, including a full format. I took out my HDD and did a S.M.A.R.T. scan to see if there were any health issues with the drive, but nothing. The only thing I haven't tried yet is to downgrade back to 3.55 and reinstall CFW.
Any help would be greatly appreciated :D
