Bricked Ps3 Phat With 3.56 Fw
Posted 15 April 2011 - 01:13 PM
When I got it, I tried to enter service mode with the usual power button trick but no success. Then I formatted his HDD and when I turned it on, it went to the main service menu.
I formated the HDD and restore defaults. Still in service mode. Then I tried to update the ofw to 3.60 to test of the NAND is ok, and there I got an issue, while the installation seemd to be 100% on reboot.... black screen and nothing was wrorking again.
I tried reformat the HDD on the PC, no success
Tried to enter service mode with all the available tricks, no success
Tried the usb stick with the .info boot files, no success
I don't have jailbreak usb to try anything, and I wonder what else is left to try. Any ideas?
P.S. Someone says that removing the internal battery might reset the boot procedures and be able to exit service mode later. Should I open the PS3 and try?

Update: I removed the battery as I was suggested on another forum, no luck. Still the same. No success
P.S. I think this section is about general hacking too, so I post on write section of the forum.

1) Is it running OFW3.56 as per your thread title?
2) Is it in actual service mode? (Big red box on the screen).
If yes to both of the above, your friend is out of luck. 3.56 PS3's can only be taken out of service mode by a qualified Sony engineer. Also, you cannot update the firmware to 3.6 from service mode. That's how you're bricking it. You cannot downgrade from 3.56 either.
