is the usb you have for sure properly formatted for the ps3 to read it? (aka fat32 not fat16 or similar) Sponsored Links
i had the same problem once and formatting the usb fixed it.
you could try service mode to install the pup also although i do not have any first hand experience with it.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong - but I believe in recovery mode (which, you want to use) the update file needs to be in PS3\UPDATE, vs just on the root of the usb drive.
SUCCESS. I places 2 copies of 3.41 on a dvd (one on root and one in \ps3\update\ps3updat.pup [just in case]) and it reinstalled.
Homebrew working from JB again.
PS: Drive was formatted as FAT32 already.
