Downgrade went fine. update went bad (help?)
Downgrade went fine. update went bad (help?) –
Ok so i was on 3.30 and tried to update to 3.55 (orginal) and it failed between 69%-74% (not really sure) and it got stuck into bootloop
so i got out of the bootloop by formatting the hard drive. and could only enter recover mode (ps3 would switch off if i tried booting normal)
so i tried to downgrade to 3.15... green light was blinking for about 10mins so i switched off and looked at the log, and its the bd drive which is broke/****ed
so i got the modified LV2 and tried again. this time it worked..
so ime on 3.15 and then try to update to 3.55 (was not sure it was the bd drive at first) and yes it failed again, so downgraded again to 3.15
then i got the modified 3.55 (bd drive skip) and installed 3.55..
now ime on 3.55 but there is nothing in the game option. all there is is ''install packages'' and the ''app_game'' nothing eles.
what can i do?
i know the laser dont work on the drive but it does take disc's and spins them up. also the connector on the mobo (bd ribbon) is broke and has to beheld down by tape (not always connected)
The BD-drive absent modified CFW takes the disk icon out of the XMB. The only way to get it back is to use MFW to create your own CFW w/ the bd-drive bypass.
can you point me to any TUTs?
