If your PS3 is downgradeable, then try downgrading it.

I tried to place it in service mode with a dongle and reinstall the firmware with the old downgrade method ( PS3UPDAT.PUP + LV2DIAG FILE 1 ) but it failed and now i also have RSOD . The PS3UPDAT i used was KMEAW 3.55 with the no bluray patch .
Help , what should i do ?
So i think this thread sound about right for me
I have a CECHC PS3, that was bricked via a bad 3.55/3.50 CFW (not waninkoko). Would this fix that, or is it specific to the errors specified in the first post? Thank you
Don't Feed the Trolls.
Hello all, I'm having issues with my buddies slim PS3. I figured I could fix it but really have just taken steps backwards, but now I'm back to my initial problem. Here we go.
The PS3 keeps stalling at 99% of the update, I'm using a flash drive, and the recovery menu. I've plugged in the hdd to my pc and reformatted it multiple times using NTFS, FAT32, both quick and full methods. Update just wont go. Even tried letting it go over night.
My problem is i don't know what firmware it had, plus don't think i wish or can downgrade it. Plus the OP said switch power supplies, how would you accomplish this with a slim? You think its the hdd, or replace the eject reset switch?
Any thoughts guys, I'm 9 hours in, torn apart external hdd, and google overloaded.
Just to recap. is a waninkoko brick still can not be unbricked unless used soldering and stuff?
Help Please –
I've recently purchased a ps3 on 3.55 that i thought just had a bad blu-ray drive, but it turns out that its the controller board on the drive. So here's the full story, I work in a cell phone/game system repair shop, and a guy came in with a ps3 that wasn't reading the games, so we told him the price of how much it'll be to fix and he couldn't afford it so the store offered him some money for it but I gave him a lil more for it, and then I was going to pay for it to get fixed. So then it turns out that the controller board is bad on the blu-ray drive but the actual lens isn't bad and the game tech guy said that I'd have to re-marry the blu-ray drive to another(working) sub-board. So he put my old drive back in with a new board. He also was able to downgrade the firmware to 3.41
So now i've got an un-married controller board with the original blu-ray drive on firmware 3.41, I'm wondering what i need to do to get it remarried. I've read up about using a service jig to downgrade to 3.1 or something, and then that'll remarry it, or will updating it to 3.55 do the trick? i'd like someone who might know the answer help me out please.
PS3 Black Screen via HDMI, Can't Access Recovery Mode
PS3 Black Screen via HDMI, Can't Access Recovery Mode –
I have a slim ps3 that is stuck on a black screen when booted up. My TV thinks it has signal but it's only a black screen.
I already tried resetting the display settings and tried to access recovery mode. Nothing at all.
The problem began differently, the screen would go black randomly and then changing input and going back to that one would fix it.
I tried using a different HDMI cable, different input, nothing works.
I don't have any other cable to plug into my TV (the original ones) so I can't test that either
Any ideas ?
You should have downgraded to the firmware you were in before the loop started. Ive done this maney times to get out of a loop.
