[Answered] Help me on my PS3 CECHA12?
Here is my previous post as to how this issue started:
"Hello, i have a jb ps3 (CECHA12), that has a non-working bluray drive. it is currently on rogero cfw 4.40 ver1.03. it plays games without any issues, be internal or external hds.
recently, i was able to acquire another ps3 with the same model (CECHA12), it has ylod, but has a working bluray drive.
i tried to swap the bluray drives since i thought they were the same model anyways, now all of my games on my working ps3 is not booting properly, even multiman.
it just goes in black screen. i thought the cause was the bluray drive so i switched back the non-working bluray drive, but it is still the same - boots up properly, but upon launching of games or multiman - no display, just black screen. and it does not recognize the working bluray drive btw.
i read somewhere that i should downgrade from 4.40 to 3.55 in order to re-marry the bluray drive. i read about the method, but on one part, it says i should enter factory service mode, and for that i need a flasher - which unfortunately i don't have"
As racer0018 had advised from my previous post. i downgraded from Rogero 4.40 to 3.55 using the Rogero Downgrader pup - it was successful.
however, when i try to launch the Factory Service Mode Tool ver. 1.02 - it's just stuck on black screen, the same goes when i try to launch QA Toggle.
i'm running out of options, will my ps3 return back the way it was if i just removed the bd drive?
any help would be appreciated, please point me to whatever files do i need to download and install to fix this issue. thanks!
I did have the same problem, above and found if you full power off the PS3, then power on with RED light on, then press power + eject, then as soon as you see the blue light, switch off power, remove Dongle, then startup PS3 as normal. works for me.
Just an update, I have fitted a BD drive from a CECHH03 ps3 to an CECHC03 running rogero 4.40 cfw. and have been able to now read my games disks with new drive in FSM on said PS3.
No need to edit file, just copy all files to usb drive with an update pup lower than 3.30 and your a winner. I used a pup from a game of 2.76 MD5: 7698F1D1D0A4601AA6FE72F784DEA498. and now can read games disks in FSM, but sadly I have now BD disk here to test, so Now making drink ready to take out of FSM and see if my homebrew works now.
An other update, May games all work from disks, and homebrew all work.
over the moon big time.
also I got the NG but it still worked.
