[Answered] ps3 3.56 rsod ofw help?
So back in the day i had a ps3 with 3.15 firmware. I updated to 3.41 and used a nand flasher as a jailbreak device. Later i updated it to kmeaw 3.55 and used the 3.60 spoof. I got the rsod on it and fixed it with the downgrade method. (using the jig along with file 1 and 3.41 pup)
My other legit ps3 was on 3.55 ofw and i updated it to ofw 3.56. It got the red screen of death and hid out in my closet for a while.
Today i figured id give it a shot and attempt to fix it. I have attempted the downgrade with no success (i'm guessing because 3.56 disabled the use of jailbreak)
I have taken the real time battery out and tried to boot into recovery mode with no success. I have tried a blank (fat32) hard drive and the system just turns off after about 15 seconds.
So my question is how the hell can i fix this without waiting for the mythical 3.60 service mode jig or 3.60 cfw?
UPDATE!!! i fixed it!
Here's what i did. (i think this will only work on the fat ps3 the slim rebuild the database when it formats)
Format the hdd in another fat ps3
Put the ps3 in service mode
downgrade to modified 3.41
downgrade to official 3.15
TAKE IT OUT OF SERVICE MODE
access recovery menu
install ofw 3.55
install cfw 3.55 in recovery menu
Thanks guys for all your help. I really hope this helps someone else in the future!
