I am having issues with this ps3.
What happened was my friend bought a ps3 and told me to hack it. I told him sure, and had no idea about the blu-ray not working.
So I went to update from 3.30 OFW to KMEAW BDB SDC 3.55 FW and it went into a update loop, and it originally always stopped at like 60-80%, but after a few times of trying to update in the loop it got to 40%.
What I did was format the HDD to FAT32 directly into my computer - Remove the CMOS Battery
Then Stay on for 30 SEC Then go off
Went to Recovery then update - Tried updating with 1 of the Patch updateBDB but always come up with a message different 800... I even tried a new hard drive.
PS: WHEN I DO UPDATE FROM THE RECOVERY IT TAKES ABOUT 30 MINS TO "CHECKING ...." THEN START TO UPDATE AND FAILS.
Any Idea Anyone cheers
