tried that version 2 m8, no work either.. what i have installed is just cfw either rebug 4.41 with multiman 4.40 or Rogero 4.40 version 1.03 with multiman 4.30 and 4.40 also tried Rogero_Manager_v8.2 with rogero.. is that enough to get ps3 up and running or am i forgeting to install something else ?
is it worth downgrading back to OFW 3.55 then upgrading again to rebug 4.41 could my firmware be corrupt ? sometimes when i turn ps3 on it says files corrupt but when i let it go through fixing files it crashes at 19 % and wont finish repairing files either from xmb or safe mode .. thanx for your patience guys
also if i have to go to 3.55 can i do it over rebug 4.41 ? cheers

Hello Bud, if its possible swap out your drive that's in that ps3, with a small drive just for working with, trust me when I say it helps not needing to format a drive when the ps3 has crashed and its lost the drive inside.
In a nut shell you need to force manufacturing_updater_for_reset.self into the ps3 without trying to use the pup that the file came in, to reset the bd if that make sense.
The instructions say you need your Ps3 on a working 3.55 firmware, but the ps3 I did was also on 4.41. I used the E3 to do in short this below.
4. Put the service mode JIG/dongle/PSGrade into port 0 (closest to the reader) and get into factory service mode.
5. Put the created USB Mass Storage device from step 3 into port 0 (closest to the reader) and run.
Drive Init Executing means it is starting the remarry process
Drive Init Failed with big pink letters 'NG' (No Good!) means the process failed. Most likely solved by fixing the communication issue with the drive.
6. After you run the initial remarry process, do not take it out of factory service mode.
7. Put a BD movie disc in and run it on the PS3. (This restores your DRL files!)
8. Then you can take it out of factory service mode.
Please Note if it displays this, Drive Init Executing means it is starting the remarry process. Drive Init Failed with big pink letters 'NG' (No Good!) means the process failed. Most likely solved by fixing the communication issue with the drive.
Try 1st as it said this ti me and it still worked, go figure, lol
When you load a game from Multiman, it always gets you back to XMB... then you have to scroll up in the Game menu and you'll see a disc icon ...as if you were inserted a real disc... you then select that disc icon and the game should start!
