Can't update via PS3/Update/PS3UPDAT.PUP
Again, I always get the weird stuff. I believe my PS3 has become damaged. I have Kmeaw's CFW on my PS3. Today I tried updating to REBUG 3.55.2 TB edition, because I just received my True Blue dongle in the mail.
I forgot that it's a good idea to first install 3.55 OFW, before installing a CFW. So, while it was copying the PUP to the HDD (before it restarted into service/whatever mode to actually install. I know that that was safe, and my PS3 still starts up fine.
I next renamed the files properly so I could install OFW from my USB drive. I plugged it in, and went to System Update. The PS3 didn't do anything. It didn't completely freeze, though. The XMB animation was still running, but hitting the power button did nothing (no beep). I had to hold the power button down to force it off, because my USB drive was not being accessed. (light was solid) I turned it back on.
Here's the problem. Now, no matter what USB drive I use, the PS3 doesn't recognize the update from the flash drive.
Is there a fix for this? I'd rather not service it. I'd expect a service station would format my PS3 with what I have on it.
That, or is there a way I can intercept the download for an upgrade via Internet? I believe I saw something like this.
Thanks for any help.
Is it ok to install OFW via service mode? Maybe I'll try that.
Edit: I guess I answered my own question. lol. I can update via service mode. Then I'll install Rebug from normal mode.
