    If you completely wipe the drive or use a different drive the ps3 will boot to xmb.

    oops lol, posting too late into the night.

    its about a ps3 stuck in an update loop, trying to update to 3.55 ofw. the loops being caused because of a faulty blue-ray board so around 60-65% it fails, you have power off/on and it all starts trying to update again.

    Queston is: Does anyone know a proper way to exit the loop and get back to getting recovery menu back on ?

    so hopefully i can apply an update with lv2diag patch on it to bypass the blue-ray board while it updates.

    try entering service mode as long as its not 3.56 then put 3.55 ofw on a usb install it off that.

    Or if your unable to enter Service Mode, try removing you HDD then switching the PS3 on.. I guess that stops the update loop.

    I think there was a similar issue with the Rebug CFW.

    If you install any retail update (including 3.55) from factory mode you will brick you PS3 again - you will get RSOD.

    Try to downgrade PS3 with jailbreak key.
