There are consoles that have ps2 backward compatibility (BC). There are full BC (hardware emulation) and semi (software emulation). So, hardware are CECHA and CECHB, and software are CECHC and CECHE.

P.S. This is what I remember, sorry if I'm not right.

3. Restart your ps3 and if you get a reboot or 3 beeps it means SUCCESS!!

NOTE:

1. Don't try to spoof because you will get x.xx but if you did accidentally then you can do a reboot to fix it

2. PS2iso support on NON-BC PS3 ONLY!!!

Thanks for your help addicts93. I've now installed:-

MM 04.53.04 CEX
ROGERO CFW 4.50 v1.01
PSN PATCH 2.22 (STANDARD & STEALTH)

Unfortunately, at the beginning of loading, MM reports that it cannot load the bd-rom, hence now none of the games work.

Also how do i fix this problem? Also how do i use the psn patch?
