I tried many ways but somehow i couldn't do it. It's a PS3 CECHB01 on FW 2.60 and missing the Blu Ray Drive n' Controller Board.
I tried a couple of Drives and controller boards i got here and even
tried a fully working bluray drive but nothing !
This PS3 stops updating firmware at about 61 % to be exact. I tried to upgrade to 2.70 ( stops @ 61% & giving that error: 8002F14E )
Also tried the 3.41 and it gives that screen where you gotta agree the TOS, but the strange thing is that there was no text at all and the DualS 3 controller wouldn't respond only charging with usb cord.
I even bought this SONY PS3 Blu-ray DVD Drive PCB Logic board KEM-400AAA a while ago: (eeshops.com/sony-ps3-bluray-dvd-drive-pcb-logic-board-kem400aaa-p-1707.html) it didn't work either.
Any help is appreciated, and do you think in the future, with the scene
progressing it will be possible to fix this ?
Would a future CFW could possibly bypass the need of a Drive in there ?
I would love to even put a normal CD/DVD Drive instead that Bluray crap lol.. or a PS1 Drive haha.
