[Answered] PS3 crashing help?
I've a ps3 slim 320GB unit.. On fw 3.41. Never downgraded.. I use hermes v4b and ps3 usbjailbreak dongle to jailbreak it..
Everything was working fine.. I got killzone 2 from a torrent to play.. I loaded it via gaia and it was working but when i pressed the PS button the scrolling was very slow.
I thought that it might be that the game is good and uses lots of power.. Then one day i tried to launch via MultiMan and it said that eboot has some problem and ps3 froze... Then i restarted and loaded via gaia and it said that eboot needed repairing or something.. I selected yes and then the game loaded and i could play.. Now whenever with the jailbreak i scroll in the xmb from the video menu to the game menu the scrolling is very slow and is not smooth...
Many a times it crashes and nothing can be done other than restarting while all other menus scroll smoothly and easily without any problems. None of the video files are playing.. Whenever i try to play a video file the screen goes black and nothing happens... However, when the console is started, without any jailbreak dongle, it works fine without any problems apart from this that multiman copies the games to external hdd very slowly.
I want to ask what to do.. I really love my console and i dont have money to buy another... Moreover, i am not upgrading to 3.55CFW so don't give that suggestion... I was thinking of formatting the hard drive once and then restoring the ps3 system from the recovery menu...! What do you ppl have to say.. Please help...! Thanks in advance...
And i forgot to mention that i when jailbreak wasnt put up i copied video files of around 6 gigs to the external and they were copied fairly quickly.. like in 12 to 15 mins...!!

sinnershanky, I know that you said that you didn't want to upgrade to the latest CFW, but bro a lot of the problems your having is due to the fact your on such a old firmware and MM. First off you dont even need to use the dongles anymore with the PS3 the system you are running should atleast be updated to 3.55 CFW NOT 3.56/3.60 OFW.
To pull this off make sure your 3.41 FIRMWARE to the original if needed. To do that you need to put create folder on the USB Stick with name PS3 once you created the PS3 folder go inside that folder and create a folder called UPDATE. The folder UPDATE is were you will be putting the PS3UPDAT.PUP. To further explain the PS3UPDAT.PUP is a firmware file it has to be in the PS3\UPDATE directory on the usb stick for the PS3 to read it. This file can be either a OFW or CFW.
I recommend installing this firmware (http://depositfiles.com/en/files/11eygdt9e
) its the latest NAIMA CFW that was just released today. The reason I am recommending this is the fact you don't even need to do anything like in the past to accomplish getting on PSN this firmware does everything for you which makes the task alot easier.
I assure you its safe I have been screwing around with the firmwares for quite some time now and I haven't had a bricked FAT/SLIM system yet! Anyways if you do decide to install this download the file (LINK ABOVE) extract it with WINRAR OR 7ZIP then put the file PS3 on a usb stick and install.
If you dont know how to get into service mode all you do is with the system off press and hold the power button wait for the system to shut off then release the power button the again press and hold the power button wait for the system to make 2 fast beeps then release the power button.
it will ask you to press the PS button THIS IS IMPORTANT plug your wireless into your system with your usb charger cord that came with your system. once that is done press the PS button to continue go down to system update and select that accept the agreements and allow that to install that will put you on the latest 3.55/360 CFW!
message me if your having issue I will be more than welcome to walk you through them!
