PS3 HDD head ache after upgrading to Rogero 4.30v1? –
Hello all, my friend has a CECH2504B 360GB PS3 Slim. He had it for about a year. It was running a 3.55 CFW (Neither of us know whose CFW it was, the CFW came in a 2TB game loaded HDD). It was all functioning perfectly. All games worked fine and no problems. One day, all of a sudden, the PS3 started echoing error messages as "The correct hard disk can not be found". This went on for about a week and again all of a sudden the PS3 started working normally. It was once again perfect until about three weeks ago. This is what happened.
I had upgraded my CECH2005A 120GB PS3 Slim to Rogero 4.30v1. I was also on 3.55CFW (Kmeaw). The Rogero update worked perfectly for me. So I guessed it also should for my friend's PS3. But when he tried to install the CFW in the right way (3.55 CFW --> 3.55 OFW --> Rogero 4.30) some thing went wrong. As soon as the 4.30 CFW installation completed and the PS3 restarted, it started echoing an error: "The appropriate storage can not be found". So my friend figured it might be a HDD problem and tried to format the HDD using a laptop by installing windows on it. But it was revealed that the HDD was faulty because the installation wouldn't pass 19% and it pops out an error about the HDD. So he got another clean Western Digital 160GB HDD. And here is what is happening right now.
When you turn on the PS3 with the clean 160GB HDD, the first message that appears is the "Connect the controller using a USB cable, and then press the PS button". Ok, plugged in and pressed PS button. And then another message pops up, and a rather long one:
"The system can not be run correctly. Press the PS button to restart the system.
If the system can not be restarted, you must install the system software.
Connect storage media that contains update data of version 4.30 or later, and then press START and SELECT buttons at the same time.
For more information on how to obtain update data, refer to the SCE Web site for your region."
If I restart the system, its all the same. But if I try to install 4.30 CFW, its reads "Checking...please wait" and then an error pops reading "The data is corrupted. (8002F2C5)". Thats it. Everything I try ends up here. A new download can't even fix this problem.
Any ideas??? Please help my friend!
