It is supposed to work directly on 3.55.
I will give it a try tomorrow and post result ;)
I hope i wont end up with a brick :)
Im having a bizarre problem:
this launch 60gb was in cfw355,Factory/service Mode is ok but no way to downgrade to modded 3.41.
I used BDB/non bdb with no success.
I put the modded 3.41 pup,the usb stick flash and fews sec later the console turns off (slowly green blinking) and nothing else happens.
So i remove the usb stick and turn on the console just to see it auto turn off few secs later in a solid red.
then i put 3.55pup;turn on and it loads normally and 4mn later auto turns off.I tried with OFW/CFW 3.55 and all is OK.
But no way to do it with modded 3.41pup file.
I even tried put the pup into SD port:failed
BTW the console is a japanese launch 60gb.
Has anyone ever experienced this? :( :(
Don't remember if i've asked this yet in this topic so can someone answer me this:
Now i have a 60GB CECHC02 PS3 Australian (with partial ps2 software emulation) with BD prohibited message that the drl hex creation method didn't fix. I have looked after this console well and tried to keep it as cool as possible to starve of the YLOD, some of the mods i've done include:
1. Cut a circular hole directly under the Fan on the ps3 bottom case and put in a grill
2. Purchased a vertical stand
3. Moved the hdd inside of the vertical stand to keep its heat out of the PS3
So i don't wanna buy another PS3 with BD playback that might YLOD on me at some time.
If i was to buy a second CECHC02 PS3 on ebay or somewhere else with an exploitable FW version and with known good BD playback could I transfer it's DRLs to my PS3 and remarry its drive to my PS3 to get BD playback back?
Anyone tried this and did it work?
We are in same case.
My FAT with 16MEGA (which i use to get BR playback on my CECHC), is overheating.
After 2 minutes, the fan is max speed and shutdown. So it's difficult to follow the indications in the post.
But i will reflow with BGA machine tomorrow, and it will resolve the problem.
(already done on 60gb YLOD real and it works perfectly now)
If i can help you, PM me. :D
What PS3 models has 256 meg and 16meg can't find that information any where.
here is a list of the ps3's with 256 and 16mb.
Ordimans: how much was your BGA reballer because i have been looking for something to do that with because a heatgun just isnt cutting it anymore...
my situation is not a overheat case.
the console is running well in 3.55 but im still unable to downgrade it to 3.41--3.15 :(
This is the first time i see a console refusing to downgrade though...
I can enter F/Service mode normally but there is no way i can install fw others than 3.55 !!
the files for the megaupload link are dead.
the link thats active is in the remarry pdf at the front,its not dead at the moment.
the heatsinks require to be tightened a turn of the wrist on each screw in turn between the four equally, placed some light pressure before reassembly on the board with fingers also before sandwiching the metal plates,it seems to have drawn them square at least on the 40gb model with good contact.
if its spinning up rapidly its likely because the heatsinks are not in contact to various degrees,also the use of a high temperature heatsink compound helps,oddly i found the white compound sold by a chinese seller on ebay gave the best results some of the silver types are too wet this gives a good texture and the results on trying were a lot better.
can someone send me a PM if you need to sauder and about if the links are dead or not? to many damn people replying...
