[Answered] Is there a way to remarry the bluray + motherboard controller?
i am using a phat 60GB (CECHC04) with OFW 3.41 installed. The previous owner obivously replaced the bluray drive with a new one, probably because the old one is not working.
Now i know the BluRay drive and motherboard controllers are married, which means my bluray drive is not working and I can't upgrade the firmware because it checks/tests the bluray drive when updating.
Is there a way to remarry the devices? If not, will this be available in the near future?
Is there a way i can actually use my ps3 at the moment? I can't use PSN because of the firmware version (3.41) and i dont want to upgrade to 3.56 anyhow, and i can't use the bluray drive either which kindof makes it a bricked PS3 right now...
Thanks in advance
Actually there may be a way, apparently a few people have gotten the method posted here to work:
Now my spanish is nowhere near good enough to describe the steps that are taken. But just incase your spanish is good it might be worth a look. I think the general idea is it uses a USB payload to first retrieve the new key then a second payload to replace the old key on the mb with the new one (not even close to sure on that though lol) but either way it's looking good for a well documented fix real soon.
