    Hi, I had acquired a couple years ago a modded ps3 cech-20xxx with rebug dex cfw, which I cannot precise what version it was, and recently the HDD died and now I am unable to fix it :(

    I purchase a new HDD 2,5 (500gb) which I had formatted to fat32 before install into the ps3, also got an usb stick also formatted in fat32 with the latest OFW 4.84 with proper folder structure (\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP) in the far right usb port.

    The problem it's that the system does not allow me to install it, it says something like "no applicable data found"...

    Also, I tried different usb sticks and trying install the firmware through safe mode with no success...

    Is it beyond repair? or there is anything I can do to fix it?

    The system does allow you to install cause you have a dex kernel and you can't install CEX PUP from DEX Converted Machine you and whyy installing OFW just put your HDD in ps3 and download REBUG 4.84 D-REX and done after that install any homebrew you want and launch your game ....etc

    Try deleting all partitions on the HDD and letting the PS3 create them.

    I've tried the D-Rex 4.84.2 (MD5 9211252d41841461c6299bfad48fa7f1) and Rex 4.84.2 (MD5 0835d81e3c581f3bdfdfbe86fca5e192) just in case it would be CEX, and I had no success... I'm start to think probably my ps3 has a kernel from others CFW, I wished I would know which before the HDD died...

    It's there any way to identify the kernel? Or there is a other way to revert it to the original kernel or even install a HFW?

    The firmware's I've tried to install so far:
    OFW 4.84
    HFW 4.84.2
    REBUG_4.84.2_D-REX
    REBUG_4.84.2_REX
    Overflow_4.84_v1_standardCEX
    Ferrox_4.84_Cobra

    Non of them worked, not even through safe mode...
    The hdd it's new with all partitions removed and the pen drive was already used to update a phat ps3 firmware, so I assume shouldn't be a trouble to work with a ps3 slim.
    I don't know what else I can do
