Can't run Homebrew apps
I've been using my own PS3 with a CFW for a while now and everything's working like a charm. A couple of days ago I tried to get my friends console to run kmeaw also. Everything went fine, firmware installed, all the necessary pkgs worked fine. We then tried to fix the broken bluray drive in his console. We ****ed it totally up and it ended up being worse than before. But even after installing it back, and trying it out everything worked well on the CFW side.
Yesterday I tried to get back to the console, installed the newest multiMAN etc. but surprisingly enough nothing would run. No one had done anything with the console since weekend when we powered it down and gave up. So I went on to install the OFW again and the install kmeaw and all the rest normally and nothing is happening! I tried to remove the bluray, made everything even worse, the PS3 won't do any system updates without the bluray drive being connected.
So I've done all the cleansing that there is available in service mode and even ran the 4 hours total format through the XMB. And installed all again. And nothing. I even changed the hard drive of the console from a 40gig to a 60gig. All the pkgs install totally normally, no problems there but when I try to run any one of them, the system just enters a black screen, no way out from there other than hard reset. I've tried restarting the console in between, uninstalling the pkgs, installing them again etc. Nothing seems to work.
The console is a 40gig CECHG04. The weird thing is that everything used to work (just games not loading because bluray was broken to begin with) and now nothing!
Do you guys have any ideas? Please help, I've been at this for like 6-8hrs now. :/
PS: I'm using all the same files that work perfectly on my own 60gig PS3! So: kmeaw CFW, lv2v6, multiMAN 1.15 and I've tried running BlackBox FTP and Comgenies Awesome Filemanager too. All end up in the same black screen.
Ok, I solved this problem by myself, just writing it up here, if someone else ends up being in the same situation and is as WTF as I was. The problem was the bluray drive that I broke. I took the drive out but left the circuit board that connects the drive to the rest of the ps intact. Now I can install everything, everything runs smoothly etc. I even can load some games (at least Assassins Creed II so far).
Now I have a problem with Fifa 11 that is working on my other PS3 without a disc. On this one with the broken bluray it freezes up in the "loading trophies" screen and automatically restarts the computer after about 10 seconds. Any ideas on how to fix this?
