I just got this old fat ps3 and this is what it says when i start it
i tried to install the update 3.15 via usb but it says corrupted data
I had that same problem with my 120 Uncharted bundle slim. Download your update data again and try to install from recovery menu. If that doesn't work then I've got bad news for you. Somebody might have a better fix, but this is what I had to do after spending 3 hours trying everything I could think of. I took out the hard drive and plugged it into a usb enclosure and attached it to my PC. I deleted the partition, then created a new UNFORMATTED partition. I then plugged it back into my ps3 and let it format the drive there. When I tried to install the firmware that I wanted, everything worked the way it should. If you don't have a usb enclosure, amazon.com sells some 2.5" sata enclosures for around $5 with shipping. If it's your first order, then shipping is usually free, so you're looking at around $2
Well im looking for the UPDATE 3.00 but i cant find it, and well thats everything i can do, i cant enter the dashboard, when i turn on the ps3 that msg is all that appears and theres nothing i can do. If i cant find the update or do something about, im willing to take it apart and attach the hard drive to my pc
any help is apreciated thx
I'm curious as to why you want official 3.00. I don't think you could get any good use out of it. Why not 3.41 or 3.55? Do you know the trick into getting into recovery mode? turn off the console. Hold down the power button until it turns on, then back off. Wait a few seconds, and then hold the power button until it beeps 3 times. From there you can try formatting the drive, doing a system recovery, or updating your firmware from a usb stick
if you do decide to go to 3.41 for dongle use or 3.55 for custom firmware use, you can find the official updates here http://psx-scene.com/forums/downloads.php?do=cat&id=16. Install the one you want (3.41 or 3.55 only) then install the custom firmware of your choice
I did not actually, i'll try it right away. Im looking that firmware cause i read that if i try other ones it will say corrupted data, and it will be fine if i use the 3.00
I tried to enter into the recovery mode but i cant, i turn it on then backed off for few secs, then pressed again and at the second beep it turns off and it doesnt give a third beep.
I don't know where you read that from. I know that it will read corrupted or give you an error if you try to install a lower firmware than what you already have. Since you tried to install 3.15 on a 3.00 system, you're either going to have to redownload 3.15 or update to 3.41 or 3.55. If you can't do the update from the recovery menu, then you'll have to format your drive. Try it first from the recovery menu, but if still no success like what I experienced, then you'll have to delete the partition and create an unformatted one using your pc, then reinstall the drive and go from there. If it was my system, I'd install 3.55 Official, then install 3.55 Rebug with the latest updates
This is how my slim works. You turn it off. Hold down the power button until it beeps, beeps, then beeps again. Your system will be off again. then you hold the power button down again. It will beep, beep, then beep twice quickly and you'll be in recovery menu
K im on the recovery menu, i just press it till i heard the twice beep, now what should i do? format and install 3.41?
