I am trying to update a cechg01 40gb ps3 from 3.50 to 3.55 OFW. The update reaches 69% then fails. It is now in an update loop. I have tried the following things to finish the update...
Replaced the WIFI board with another known working board.
Replaced the HDD with another and swapped a couple different times.
Replaced power supply just for giggles.
Putting it into FSM (which gives RSOD) then out of FSM
The bluray drive is reading all disks just fine or was before the update loop. I've tried multiple times to get this to take the update with out any luck.
I'll try another wifi board but the one I used was a good one. I was in a hurry so maybe I didn't plug it in correctly too. I'll have to check when I get home. After FSM the ps3 goes RSOD and the update will not start from a USB dongle but I can get it out of FSM.
