Jailbreak not working on 3.21 firmware
Jailbreak not working on 3.21 firmware –
PS3 is a 60GB NTSC-J with 3.21 firmware, connected via A/V cable to CRT TV
The PS3USBJailbreak dongle is flashed with "KaKaRoTo PL3 of PSGroove for 3.21(no PSN)." payload.
After the on & eject procedure, the light in the dongle turns green (meaning success)
But the screen is
1. Sometimes blank
2. Sometimes shows default animated background, but no menus come.
What could be the problem ?
Not sure, but is there any reason you don't want to update to 3.41? You already don't have OtherOS anymore. Why not go to 3.41?
Don't want to take the risk of blowing some undocumented efuses if it is there !
You are hard switching the console off first right? You cannot simply hit PWR then Eject.
Also NO other USB devices can be connected.
Power on PS3.
Plug in Jailbreak Dongle.
Power off PS3.
Flick the hard power switch on the back of the PS3 to off. Wait 5 seconds.
Flick it back on.
Press power then eject right away, like a drumming on your desk motion.
OK, I will certainly try the mentioned sequence. (However It'll take a while before I could lay my hands back on the console!)
Meanwhile, the following was what I was doing (along with the observations):
1. Flipped off, the switch on the back side
2. Plugged in the dongle.
3. Switched on the switch on the back side
4. Tapped the power on touch switch, & then immediately
5. Tapped the eject switch
Now the following happens:
Case 1: 'On' & the 'eject' button pressed as fast as possible:
Now, the dongle light flashes & then stabilizes to green. But then the screen remains blank. The wireless controller, does not even register with the PS3 (evident from the 4 LEDs blinking for a while & then going off for good)
Case 2: 'On' pressed & the 'eject' button pressed after a little delay:
Now too, the dongle light flashes & then stabilizes to green. But instead of the blank screen, we can see the animated & wavy curves. The wireless controller, registers with the PS3 (evident from the 1 LED glowing stable). This could mean, that blue tooth services were up at that point.
The crazy thing is, we will be waiting for the menu to show up, but unfortunately it wouldn't. So we are helpless once again!
Would these give any hints on what could be happening behind the scenes ??

Also, there are efuses in the PS3, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EFUSE
Point noted, will ensure that the controller is a mile away next time s3up: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _:joystick1:

I feel that the PS3 is giving a lot of warm air out.
Donno if the CPU is in some infinite loop & so in full load & giving a lot of heat!
Is there anybody there who has jailbroken a 3.21 Fat 60 GB PS3 ???
