It should. I just did this with a drive that came from a completely unknown source and matched it to a system that I have just as much info on.
The Hdd is not even the original.
You would have to go through the whole process though.
That will likely mean anything you have on the PS3 will be wiped, so backup anything you want.
Does anybody know if you can mix-up Blu-Ray drives? Like swap a KEM-410 for a KEM-400? (60GB to 80GB?)
This is a phenomenal step forward! Now those who have broken BR drives can replace them with ease -- if not a little cost

I agree, This would helps others with the same problems to identify this as a fix.

Remember if you have your PS3 on 3.55 now, you will need to downgrade using the modified 355 downgrade files, then put another firmware on before you can begin to do this.
You cannot downgrade using the original Lv2diag and normal Pup files.
Search the forums, you will find it easy enough.
Thanks for helping out the users here.

hey, so like can plp use this if they lost their blu ray when downgrading..
i dnt need it just wondering.
because it says this will restore your drl files?
Cheers! After reading Mark's last comment, I think the problem is the modified 3.41 included with the 3.55 downgrade files. Maybe 3.15 does work? Anyway, have 2.30 now, and I'll post my results.

I'm running the same files with 3.15 right now, and it appears to be working, so just a FYI, the problem I had before was due to the modified PUP (I was on 3.55)
