    Try using the MFW tool to create your own CFW. I think it has an option to disable checking the BD drive. That is the only option I know of.

    Thanks.. i never used it before but i'll see what i can do. any chance of bricking my ps3 using this?

    This has to be done in linux? the blu ray just won't read disks anymore so i can update no problem (just went from 3.15 to 3.41 with no issues)

    There is a version of the MFW tool for windows. I don't remember it creating any bricks, just has a bug with saved games be copied to USB.

    Try the normal Kmeaw update first, if that doesn't work then try the MFW.
