Need serious help.. PS3 in a firmware brick.
Need serious help.. PS3 in a firmware brick. –
Hi my ps3 has become bricked from going back to OFW 3.55 from gitbrews OtherOS++ 3.55 CFW. I can only access Recovery. Black screen in AV mode, and Blue screen in HDMI mode.
I can not do any of the features in Recovery they all result in either "HDD can not be accessed, or Incorrect HDD, or 8002F271 error when trying to do system update". I have reformatted the HDD multiple times on PC to both RAW and FAT32, even bought a new HDD and tried to see if it was a bad HDD. Also I can confirm it is not the HDD, it works perfectly on my PC. As well I have tested for both bad heating and or any burnt or non working components. Have also reset the CMOS, not as if it would do anything but reset the time stamp.
Does anyone know how to fix this or is my system completely screwed. I have a slight feeling that the OtherOS CFW screwed up my system's NAND. My system is also a CECHG01 Fat unit. Please any tips and or help would be much appreciated. Has anyone had this same issue.
Also I am pretty sure I can not get into service mode. As I believe I actually have no HDD info now from reformating, as well as if the NAND is corrupted it will probably have NO COREOS and GAMEOS.
Thank you once again for any help or guidence.
The same thing happened to me last weekend. I didn't troubleshoot as much as you did but my PS3 boot to a blue screen and when trying everything in the recovery menu I either got an error saying hard disc couldn't format or the 8002F271 error.
After panic set in and a bottle on wine in my belly I downloaded the factory mode hex for my teensy++2.0 to see what would happen. Luckily my PS3 booted and downgraded to 3.41 (then 3.40) successful. After that back to 3.55 then 3.55 kmeaw and everything seems to be working again.
I have a 60gig launch PS3 and other then losing everything its much better then needing to buy a new PS3. So hopefully you have access to a dongle to try that out.
Thank you so much. I currently don't have a USB HEX device. But I looked into the teensy++2.0, and I will most definitely get one. Luckily enough I live in Oregon, which PJRC is located in Portland, Oregon. So shipping will be no time. Also this might actually work due to the fact that the firmware never made it past 1% of the unpacking part of the PUP file. Which I might actually still have the COREOS and GAMEOS available on the NAND. One quick question is do you have a link to the files you used?
Thank you again. Specially since it is almost impossible to get you hands on a 3.55 compliant unit or lower. Specially since there has been 0 confirmation on the COD black ops bundles actually having 3.50.
dongles, iPods, TI-84, psp, androids, ect... USB hex device (dev board) is not the only thing to use for downgrading
Edit: I'm also in Oregon, I have a few extra dongles!!
