I am stuck on a Fat with Rogero 4.30v1 It won't let me downgrade to try to load service mode to remarry another drive. As the title says I don't have the original drive as it is long gone. (board fried and all)
I have various parts of other PS3s but I am at a loss as to how to downgrade/remarry. Even if it is doable without the original drive board. It has QA Toggle installed, but due to no drive I can't run anything.
System update from recovery complains that I need 4.30 or higher even using the downgraders. I suspect this is due to not being able to load QA Toggle?
Ok, just had a success in the downgrade. Now the trouble of getting into service mode without a dongle. I was able to get into service mode with FactoryServiceMode.gnpdrm.pkg on a different PS3. But that requires me to run a package. Something I can't do without the original board.
If by some miracle I can enter service mode. I will try to remarry just a board. As all my spare parts are drives with dead lasers or motors. Is this at all possible to pair up a board alone so one can use the PS3 driveless?
