Swapping/Replacing BD-ROM Drives
This is probably in the wrong section, but was the closest I could find for the topic.
I have been reading a fair amount about swapping the BD drives in the PS3, but most threads and posts are fairly outdated now.
Simply put, is there an easier way of swapping BD drives now, or do we still need the original logic board which came with the console?
Are we now able to get the keys and use any (compatible) drive as a replacement, much the same as the 360?
A side question: If a different logic board is hooked up, will an update still fail the same way if NO logic board is connected? If the above is not possible (yet), is there the slightest chance a system update will re-marry the logic board to the connected console?
