Need Help remarrying BluRay drive
Need Help remarrying BluRay drive –
ok so my new ps3 motherboard is in with its bddrive board (CECHE01) and i also got myself a new bluraydrive . its on fw 2.17, i read the instructions on how to remarry it but it tells me i have to get into fsm and im trying but its not working with my psp or a dongle, should i upgrade to a different firmware?
only certain psps work its tempermental. which dongle are you using to get into FSM i used E3 card reader fine with a few consoles but have problems with my 60gb model i used it on 3.55fw using this tutorial HERE
that is the tutorial i am using, and i'm using a psp 1001, i have also tried my cobra usb (but im guessing i have to be on cobra firmware for that?) and an x3max dongle (not sure if that even works but i tried anyway)
uhh wouldn't i have to be on cfw to do this? im on firmware 2.17 (really early one) i mean if i wanted to i could just update to fw 3.55 then install cobra cfw and use my cobra dongle does that work? (updating fw2.17--->3.55?)

just use mfw builder and make your own cfw 3.55 with bluray bypass and lvl 1 2 peak poke and patch install package files then just upgrade to 3.55 and use the tool linked above to get into fsm run the remarry software (or what ever u call it) and make sure u play a bluray movie before exiting fsm...then exit fsm and make sure u can still run a bluray in regular mode...(note when i did it the first time i had to try and run the movie twice before it would run...) then just install any cfw or fw you wish...any questions just ask and i'll try to explain in more detail
wartutor im in the mfw builder and theres a bunch of options in the "allow firmware update of console with broken blu-ray drive" (i assume this is the bluray bypass) do you want me to also remove the firmware and bdprevoke?
let me open it then i'll tell u what i checked
patch lv1 hypervisor
patch lv2 kernel
patch package installer
patch application launcher
add new icons to the xmb game category
allow firmware update of console with broken blu ray drive
well i never noticed the two on the task options not being checked...i didn't check them but u may need to atleast check bdprevoke...ii'm not sure what it means enabling this will remove blu-ray drive firmware...or if you are able to remarry a drive board while it's removed...anyone else know for sure before he does it...another thing i don't understand is removing bdprevoke says it removes blu ray drive firmware but then u have a option for remove bd firmware under it...whats the difference....if noone answers this i would suggest checking them and updating (i think if it's not done right it puts u in a update loop) so probably be safer to check them then if u can't remarry go from there at least u would be on 3.55
edit...right now i'm building a mfw 3.55 with them not checked to see if it patches anything and will let you know the outcome
edit 2...ok without them checked it came up and still said it was removing the br drive firmware but doesn't seem to do anything
md5 of official 3.55 CA595AD9F3AF8F1491D9C9B6921A8C61
md5 of unchecked C652F59BF1F1A45BDB8791866FBB7689
md5 of them checked 3936296634556AA0A64638A369234137
so it's changing something
