I have a 60g PS3 that will not boot unless the hard drive is removed. If the hard drive is removed then it boots into service mode.
I did the DEX conversion to this unit, and it went fine with zero issues. Then a few days later it started randomly having startup issues, and within a couple of days it wouldn't boot with the drive inserted..
I believe it to have a bad hard drive. At this point I am tired of having it around.
Comes with 2 controllers, the BD remote, a copy of the stock cex.bin, a copy of the dex.bin, and the per console root key that I extracted back when the metldrpwn exploit was first released.
Will let it go for $125 shipped using the PayPal gift option.
