Hello everyone, I'm DarkSideR, I'm from London, United Kingdom and I have a problem with a PS3 that I have.
I wanted to jailbreak my PS3 and I checked for some videos on Youtube. I was frustrated cause all the videos I've found were either fake either with goddamn surveys. And after many searches, I've found this video that worked on firmware version 4.50. The jailbreaking process went well but I expereinced some strange things with this jailbreak.
Everytime I was turning my PS3 on, the system was in "Demonstration Mode 4.5, however, this was not a problem, all I had to do is go on Settings->Security->Pressing the l1+r1+select+squared button and then a box that requested a 4 digits password used to come up, the password was 0000. After I was unlocking my PS3 using this method, demonstration mode was turning off, I could use the PS3 and all it's options.
The problem here is that this was a weird king of jailbreak, no packages were working for it, and the package installer was at Settings, not at Games, like other jailbreak versions have.
So I've made the stupid decision to upgrade my firmware to 4.53 using Settings->System Update. I updated my system legitl, however, after the 4.53 version installed I've noticed that the jailbreak is still on it, and now it requires me the 4 digits password for 4.53, which is not 0000, as it was before.
I've tried to put an official Sony 4.53 firmware on it... i downloaded the firmware from the Sony website, placed it on my USB, but when I try to update it using Media Storage it says "No applicable data was found", and I don't know why, cause the version of it is 4.53...I've tried many things, restore the system, rebuild the system using safe mode, update it via safe mode... but nothing works.
I tried to place another OFW's on it but everytime I try i get "corrupted" or "not found" I'm very puzzled by this I just want to get my PS3 with it's legit firmware on it, just as it was when I got it.
