omg tell me this is not happening
i have a fat ps3 on 4.31 rogero cfw and i just bought a 1tb hard drive and switched it over for more room and if made me reinstall cfw again wich all worked out fine and i used the new 4.40 cfw
I was now on 4.40 cfw with my shiny new 1tb hd but my saves wouldn't load even though i did a 1 to 1 multiman file transfer , they had to use same profile but mines banned
So this is what freaking happened
i reinstalled old 60gb hard drive wich still had rogero 4.31 cfw to back up saves so i popped in my usb thumb drive put 4.40 on it and at the screen that says that file system is screwed ect ect
reinstall update press select start "wich i have done 3 or 4 times exchanging other friends hd's"
i pressed select start and let it work and for some reason it didnt take me through usual steps of accepting and all those usual steps wich it always does
so it works and i go to start multiman and its corrupted wich was weird then i go to system info and it says 3.74 firmware!!!!!
i had FFXIII-2 in drive wich has built in update but didnt think that mattered cause 3.74 is a way lower firmware then 4.31 wich was on there installed already
So my question is how in the world did it pick 3.74 firmware over my rogero 4.40 cfw that was on usb wich i had used a hour before to update other ps3 cfw and i thought there is no way to go to a lower firmware??
so how is that possible it downgraded to ofw?
and since 4.40 cfw was already on the ps3 and the internal hard drive has all the files used is there no way i can recover somehow besides e3 flash? i used toggle qa if that helps at all and i have a backup of hard drive
