Which recovery methods have you tried?
Just calm down for a second, I had the same problem using the spoofer, and I hit the X button more than once and it red screened, then nothing worked after rebooting. What you need to do is enter recovery mode, with system off hold the power button until it turns off again, then quickly press and hold it again until you hear the first turn on beep, then 2 quick beeps, release button. You should have a menu to reboot ps3 or reinstall firmware, etc.
I had to reinstall the OFW 3.55 first, THEN repeat the procedure and install kmeaw's again. Make sure you go back to OFW and don't double install the cfw!
Also note: this will not erase your homebrew or backups, but it will reset all your certificates to default.
erm well none becasuse when i turn it on the screen doesnt come on so idont know which methods u can do with out the screen on. could you tell me please ????
That is shit mate ... happened to me last week when I installed the 3.56 spoof. What exactly happened is that I accidently pressed the PS button on the controller while installing the spoofer. Then my console freezed and I got the AC plug out ... then just a beep and green light, but nothing onscreen.
What I did was install the original 3.55 firmware and then install kmewa CFW through recovery mode. If you don`t know how to go to recovery mode ... google it ! So after that I started the console and received a message that the hard disk is corrupt and need to be formated .... that scared me alot, cause I have over 400GB on my HD ... but there was nothing I can do ... so I pressed OK ... a bar appeared and when it reached 100% the console restarted and I couldn`t believe my eyes ... nothing was formated ... the console started working as normal again.
Saw that advice to just press OK when it asks to format on a youtube video. There were other suggestions to just format it through recovery mode .... but I`m sure that way you couldn`t save what is on your HD.
That helped me ... for other people when they press OK the bar reaches 100% and after restart it asks to format the HD again ... that`s a nasty loop and there is nothing you can do, but format the HD through recovery mode in order to get your console working again ....
Hope you are lucky as I was and don`t have to do that , cause all your saved data will be gone + all your backed up games etc. !
Hope that helps !!!
ok thank you xpyrx.. but when i turn it on the hdmi cable doesnt reckenise the ps3 its got no signal so if i do this i dont think it will still go on the screen ?
thank you corp 1 but when i turn it on the hmi says no signal so it thinks its not connected to the ps3, i dont think if i do the recovery thing it will get the ps3 back on the screen ?
Mine was on hdmi cable and it gets no signal because you broke it with the spoofer like I did. Follow instructions on my post and you'll get it back into a menu with 6 options, choose system update, insert your usb stick with OFW 3.55. When its complete everything should boot up normally, then install your cfw again.
same thing happen to me. just reinstall what ever firmware your using. if you can still see recovery mode i bet its your problem to.
