    So long story short I was trying to update my cfw on 4.8.5 and after rebooting the ps3 it no longer boots up. It just turns green for couple of seconds then switches off and starts blinking red. I cant enter recovery mode and I cant even get it to stay on for longer than seconds.

    You're going to need a hardware flasher to dump & try to fix the flash.
    Once we know your model number of your ps3 & you have a Teensy++ 2.0 or E3 Flasher we can better help guide you on unbricking your system.

    You should explain more details about what happened

    Btw, remove the internal hdd and try to boot the PS3 without it... and tell us the results

    I did try that and I got the very same result. Green goes on for couple of seconds then it beeps twice and it starts blinking red. I even tried botting it with the CD drive removed, same thing.

    INFO:
    I was on 4.8.5 cobra 8. Something and i wanted a clean jb and to move to a cfw called reffor 8.20 ( definately sure I misspelled the name). So I started by going to recovery mode and resetting default settings and formatting and rebuilding file systems and then the ps booted normally and all went well, after that I realized I no longer have the package manager, thinking my ps3 was no longer jailbroken i decided to jailbreak it again to go to that cfw i mentioned above. I jailbroke it using the web browser and all went well. However, after I rebooted the ps3 the problem started happening.

    I would really appreciate any help I can get. Feel free to inbox me if you want.

    You were most likely still jail broken and when you flashed the hex with the exploit it caused a brick.
    The way to fix it is to make a dump with a hardware flasher fix the coreos and flash it back.

    The people I normally buy from don't have any so I can't recommend a seller. Here is an example of what you should look for.

    Just be sure it's the flasher & not just an extra clip. I've seen that mistake before.
    If you have any doubts just post a link before you buy anything & we'll check it out for you.

    Here is a bunch of great info about the E3 flasher on the devwiki.

    Copy of posts form my profile.
    I wouldn’t think that would be the issue here. It sounds like you still had a cfw installed when you flashed the hex with the exploit. That will brick your ps3 every time.
    It’s not hard to fix and if you already have the case off that makes it even quicker. I’ll try to get this moved to the thread so it’s all in one place for you.​
