the worst RSOD imaginable please read and share
hey all. ive just aquired the 1st sealed playstation 3 ive ever seen off craigslist. its a cechk01 16mb nor version. it show rsod this isnt a post about rsod caused by missing pieces or update loops. this is the rsod that has no solution that i can find
when i first got it i tried all options in recovery. rebuild database just prepared then back to rsod
installed 3.55 ofw through recovery. goes to 43% then slams to 100% in an instant. ive seen this described in some of the unbricking posts. after that it reboots and goes strait to rsod.
i get in service mode with my droid and downgrade. it works completely. the log says success the whole way.
it reboots to rsod.
the only thing i havnt tried is poping the battery out of it. as i said this is the only stickered ps3 ive got.
ive tried many firmwares (bdb 2.30,3.15,3.55 kmeaw and even that wierd ps3 setup files one) it has the same result
yes ive tried another hdd. ive formated drive in another ps3, yes ive formatted it as primary on a pc. same result
this is the one true hard RED SCREEN OF DEATH not a bad update, not waninkokos mess up, something else
please dont reply about your loops and update errors and not having a bluray drive and whatnot. and of course dont tell me your ps3 went green yellow red. lol these post ruined every other brick thread ive read. everyone who has described these symptoms has gotten buried in flamewars and bad english posts about ylod or broken disc drives lol
if anyone has this problem and has fixed it please lend a hand
these are the exact symtoms that differentiate this rsod from any other.
RSOD before any video shows
updates jump to 100 percent just after 43%
while in service mode Violins play and swoosh shows for 3 seconds but RSOD before ps3 logo
service mode downgrade works completely but same RSOD
