    What exactly CFW flavour did you install ?
    is it cobra or non-cobra ?
    what other tools are installed that ma temper with boot time ?
    What have you installed from psnpatch and which configurations have you enabled ?


    You will not need to format anything.
    If the system doesn't boot, you can always reinstall from the recovery menu and it will reset all installed payloads .

    That depends entirely on the always enabled game - psnpatch does only control the local configuration.
    If a particular game controls the add-ons at the server level, and refuses the local raps, that means you have not bought the add-ons.

    The easiest way is to bought those addons.

    It was my fault for not understanding exactly what I was doing with the PSNPatch util but this was my first time jb a PS3 so I wasnt sure what to do after it froze like that. I tried everything but reinstalling the FW.

    Everything installed fine and after I installed REBUG_4.82.1_LITE for the CFW, the only things I installed after that was mulitiMan and then the latest PSNPatch. But where I really screwed it up was when i had it install all of the plugins I think...still not sure if that caused it but it was the last thing I did and rebooted. After that it kept locking up trying to do a disk check.

    Its fine now but I need to read up on PSNPatch before I try installing that again.

    Yes. You should read psnpatch user guide. Is quite straight forward.
    But usually you should only:
    install rebug.
    go into rebug config and activate cobra
    install pssnpatch
    go into psnpatch config, install psnpatch plugin.
    no other option should be needed.


    you probably have installed the psnpatch "non-cobra" plugin then activated cobra in rebug. psnpatch "non-cobra" plugin may be incompatible with some cfw cobra implementations and may have been the cause of your issues.
    so: FIRST make sure cobra is activated, THEN install psnpatch plugin

    again: read psnpatch manual. it is all there

    ;)

    If it freezes in recovery, it is a problem of your ps3 hardware or the cfw you are using.
    I suggest you to place the question in your cfw support thread.

    you just have to reinstall rebug trough the recovery menu.
    follow the instrutions to install a cfw trough the recovery menu,
    after being in the recovery menu, and start updating firmware, everything is reset. No more hangs.
    take care about enable cobra in the cfw before installing psnpatch.

    Like kokotonix said, psnpatch does not affect emer_init.self which is the executable loading recovery mode.
    Even if you messed up your COBRA installation & installed bad plugins, booting into recovery would still be allowed.
    Something else has messed your system up & the fact it happened after psnpatch plugin installation is a coincidence. You could have a hdd issue or corrupted fw among other things..

    If you are stuck in recovery with no way to get back to xmb or reinstall the CFW, your best option might be to change hdd or try a quick reformat on the pc.. You will need to reinstall the exact same pup for the fw currently installed.

    Yes, I will try to reformat hdd. I hope it helps. I read somwhere that rebug doesn't allow firmware update from recovery. Too bad.

    I don't believe this is correct.. otherwise, it would be a major issue for a lot of people who've soft bricked. it does have update protection for the bd. instead of searching for PS3_UPDATE, it searches for NOT_UPDATE for bd only. I searched for it in the emer_init.self (the recovery menu), and I don't believe I saw any changes to usb updating.

    edit: I just double-checked using 4.81.2 as a base. nothing has changed with usb updates, only bd or bdvd have been changed to NOT_UPDATE and NOT/UPDATE respectively.
