    hello as the title says I have a ps3 3.55 downgraded with rogero downgrader. I installed the original 3.55 firmware but when I try to install any cfw I get data corrupted message. I tried with rebug 4.84.2 Rex and Lite. How can I solve?

    Are you sure you installed OFW3.55? Check the pup MD5. It should be ca595ad9f3af8f1491d9c9b6921a8c61
    OFW 3.55 : https://yadi.sk/d/rcPnGfch3m0Re

    If so, re-install it two times via the recovery.

    I checked md5 and it was correct. I installed again 3.55 but gave me an error. Installed again with error. It always started making the update. So I formatted hdd with pc and now the ps3 doesn’t turn on at all. It gets into recovery but I don’t know what to do

    From what I remember you should have FW (e.g. OFW 3.55) onto USB device.
    One of these screen should be shown:

    So press and hold :but start: + :but select: for few (5) seconds and follow on screen messages.

    Rogero's downgrader tricks the system into the system into thinking it's on 9.99 what you need to do is enable QA flag setting. QA flag is enabled by going to network settings and pressing the same time:L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + Down on D-Pad. Once this is done via recovery install Rogero 3.55 CFW v3.7 and you are just about done. From here you will be able to install 4.84/4.85 CFW's.

    I don't know if he will be able to enable QA flag, because his disk has been wipe out\format on PC.

    So guys after days of trying I gave up. I enabled QA flag when I was on cfw 3.55 rogero 3,7. Then I installed ofw 3.55. After trying to update again to ofw 3.55 as suggested from you, now the recovery menu doesn’t work as before. It stuck on everything I press. I’m going to sell it as not working...

    First thing first.
    I'm not entirely sure why in the first place you used Rogero downgrader?
    Does this console was on higher (C)FW already?

    Can you try to install higher OFW?
    I mean 4.84 or 4.85 OFW?
    https://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/System_Firmware,
    https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/system-updates/ps3/.
    If yes you can use software flasher on it:
    https://www.psx-place.com/threads/p...mpers-v2-0-1-now-install-cfw-from-4-84.23123/.
    4.85.1 HFW:
    https://www.psx-place.com/threads/u...-for-4-85-ofw-users.23094/page-64#post-201157.
    4.84.2 HFW:
    https://www.psx-place.com/threads/u...lash-tools-restored-for-4-85-ofw-users.23094/.

    If this doesn't help, what about install once again Rogero 3.55?

    What about restore system factory settings?

    I tried all of these. Any option I select from recovery menu doesn’t work. It stays for hours blocked. I cannot do anything else and anyway it has YLOD so I’m pretty sure it will happen again

    I say try OFW 3.55 then try CFW might get this fixed just my thoughts BTW.
    AS you was advised above by @littlebalup if you didn't do this maybe flash is corrupted.
    You sure you are on 3.55

    suggestion
    wip again HDD
    USB install OFW 3.55
    install CFW 4.84
    If you can't install after wipe
    maybe HDD is going bad
    maybe fix Low Level format your HDD
    then try again at top

    You’re lucky, this happened to a my friend a few months ago, but his console crashes on when tried to load XMB.
    It’s a memory/flash error (Maybe corrupted) because the console thinks that is still on higher FW, and doesn’t let you update.
    I suggest you to try to use an E3 Flasher to downgrade again. The E3 saved his console (4.50 CFW DEX > 9.99 DW > 3.55 OFW > Reinstalled 3.55 OFW but with E3 > 4.84 CFW)
