It works like that: Press button and hold, you hear one beeps and ps3 turns on, you still hold the button and hear two peeps, the ps3 than turns off, dont release the button but move finger a litle bit, you will hear again one beeps and ps3 turns on, HOLD BUTTON and you will hear now 3 beeps and PS3 turns off NOW release button and ps3 will boot into rescue menu.
Hold the button for the whole procedure.
Every time i tryed it it need to be done for two times.First step you hear only two beeps but for the second time you than will hear 3 beeps.Belive my and dont give up.
To formatting hdd cant work becouse all necessary data will be in the NAND and only extracted to HDD.Even it is corrupted PS3 will say HDD neeed to be formatted.I dont know what goes wrong but theorie and logical thinking sayes that formatting hdd will not solve the problem.
the weird thing istha before i formated the ps3 hd, the erro code appear in the tv (error 8002F14E), after formated the system wont even stay on, so the nand falsh is some way cross with the original HD.
Im trying to make a full formated on that hd in another Ps3 (almost 4 hours of foramting) after that ill put back in tha bricked Ps3 and see wat happens....
