PS3 CFW for broken blu-ray drive
i have just resurrected a phat ps3 and the blu-ray laser is dead. is there a way to play my backups i have on my slim on the phat without fixing the bluray? what cfw and what manager if its possible at all.
Try using the 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.
