PS3 REBUG 3.55.2 or any CFW issues need help
PS3 REBUG 3.55.2 or any CFW issues need help –
ok i have a quick question maybe the answer or solution is simple however i cant figure it out as i'm new to PS3 hacks(I have modded every other system from dreamcast and ps2 to xbox 360). figured i'd add that part to let you know i'm not an idiot but maybe when it comes to the ps3 hack.
ok i got a console that had OFW 3.15 i updated it to OFW 3.55 then i installed kmeaw's CFW for 3.55 I installed multiman and tried to load it but got a black screen and it never loaded.. Next i installed Rebug 3.55.2 and tried to install Multiman AND Snes9x emulator and the same thing black screen on both and nothing ever comes up.
Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with this PS3
I heard that a failing Bluray drive board can cause it not to load anything however i have no problem installing OFW or CFW so it must work. also i have no PS3 games for the system as i just got it today. Also they have a DBD Bypass for OFW and CFW so i would awesome that a Blu Ray drive is not need to just load packages.
Mind you all these PKG files install just fine but dont load.
Please point me in the right direction, I know one of you PS3 CFW masters on here can help me in 2 seconds lol I'm getting frustrated.
Have you tried .pkg's from different sources and for different firmwares, sometimes if it's for a different firmware it will still install but will just hang at black screen when you try and load it. it could also be a bad download. Let's hope its not a hardware problem.
If you want to, upload one of the .pkg's your trying to install and I'll try it on mine, just so we can rule that out.
i would think so but even the PKGs that come with Rebug 3.55.2 dont work but if you can upload one of the pkgs you've installed and got to work it would let me use the process of elemenation to track down my problem
i've checked the checksum of the kmeaw CFW before install BTW

hey i found out after an hour of research that its the bluray board. i tried to load a movie in the drie and nothing happened so i looked up the issues people had after the 3.00 firmware update and saw that that update killed some bluray boards so now i'm about to try a bdb bypass firmware from a thread in the technical forum.
if this works then i'd like an admin to sticky that thread and i'll bump that thread until you guys sticky it. I'm not trying to be annoying but i'm sure there are people who have this same issues or thinking of buying a ps3 with a bad blu ray board. this would also explain how i bricked a system i had about 4 months ago because i got it after someone ripped the blu ray drives power connector off the motherboard. thanx in advance to Polki333 for at least trying to help me and to Warren and Acergy for making those threads and uploading the firmwares
ok this didn't work. as a tid bit my ps3 will finish the update but stop at like 67% but the firmware boots. i dont get an error or anything it just jumps to the end
