    Hello to all,

    After my last thread we figured out ,that the problem is my Bluray drive.
    Even though until today the PS3 was working just fine, but i tried to install the OFW , 4.85 just to jailbreak it, as i was guided to .
    But it never completed everytime stucks at 70% saying the usual error with BluRay code.

    So ,now it's keep looping, i can get only into Recovery mode, after i "format" the disk ,and erase the procedure.

    What should i do ? How can i just install any update?

    My PS3 FAT IS CECHC04 , with 60GB hard disk.

    i think you would need a hardware flasher. the flasher would do the jailbreak and then you would install a nobd cfw update.

    this something most ps3 users are not gonna do on their own. best to try to find someone who can do it for you. (i assume flashers are not cheap also)

    even to pay someone is going to be expensive here,when you can find jailbreaked for 60-70€. ready to use with Official Games and controllers.I DON'T want to throw it away so i'm looking for a way to install anything that can help me with the update.
    Because now it's "empty".

    after the format it is no longer possible without a flasher. if it was a slim model you could hook up a blueray drive from another ps3 long enough to install update and jailbreak.

    if you can still get into recovery have you tried restore ps3?

    i see you have checc model so the firmware may still run if you can get it to reset the hdd.

    Yes it shuts down.

    Also another thing that i found ,i can't use the E3 Flasher as you suggested because my Model is NAND and NOT NOR, the E3 Flasher goes into a singular chip.
    The NAND has 2 x Samsung Chips , that cannot be done that way , i need Progskeet or Teenshy 2.0.

    So i need to find another way

    i didnt recommend any one type. ive never used a flasher at all. i understand "flasher" to mean all those types.

    I mean the flasher as suggestion , not a specific one.
    The only 2 i can find are the ones that i told you about.

    No , i cannot do the HDD reset and recovery and shuts down.
