Brick??? Maybe –
i dunno what i did i was trying to install kmeaw on a fat 80gb cech01 never had anything on it before when id try to install ofw 3.55 said no data or whatever so i just put the kmeaw cfw it would show up in update like it normally would or what I've seen online anyways i tried to install it from there it would copy whatever then try to install but would tell me already had same fw or whatever and it would kick me out so then i started it in recovery mode and went to do system update like my instructions say and it started to install but when it gets to 75% it gives me an error saying to turn off and unplug for a few mins and try again so did that and it was trying to update still didn't give me any options to do anything just strait into updating but everytime at 75% it gives error and its a red screen so i dont know what to do any ideas???
find i prepatched kmeaw one that matches M5 # just to make sure

Theres a way to unbrick a bad update using a modified lvl2diag.self file and a dongle. The tutorial is in spanish and I don't have the link handy now. Search for "naima lvl2diag" on google and you should find it easy enough.
alright i was messing around again but still not sure what i did some how was able to get back into recovery mode i did a system update to reinstall everything and once again at 75% it gives me an error (8002F14E) and to try again if persist call who ever so once again I'm back to nothing on me screen just a "no signal" and ps3 either sits on with green light flashing and my flash drive flashing if i don't have flash drive in ps3 shuts-down after 30sec to a min i still get the beeps to put into recovery mode just nothing shows up on screen
alright I'm back into recovery mode so what should i do now i have a ofw 3.55 on my flash drive which i download from Sony's website should i go head a try it again or anyone have a diff idea??? please and thankyou
If you can get to recovery, flash to OFW using the flash drive and usb closest to the blu ray. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE MD5 HASH OF THE OFW FILE ON YOUR USB FIRST! If your having issues and its cause your drive is going bad or the transfer corrupted a file, it could brick your unit and your already having enough problems.
how do i check the MD5 hash?
