    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and new to modding ps3's. I've had my phat mgs4 80gb ps3 for a long time now and just decided to get it re-balled recently as it had overheated and died 5 years ago. My main goal was to play ps2 games again as the system is reverse compatible. The only reason I installed cfw is to be able to control the internal fan speed to better cool the system to prevent it from dying again. I followed this tutorial () and had great success, I can control fan speed now and it runs cooler than ever. My only problem is I cant play ps2 games. I know some games have problems playing but this one should work according to ps2 classic emulator wiki page (midnight club II). I followed everything in the video except I installed the only cfw that was available at the time, 4.85 SPY COBRA 8.01. Ps3 games work fine, but when launching ps2 games (iso's or actual disc - i tried both, using multiman, webman, and managunz) the ps3 goes to a black screen and freezes, controller wont re-connect and I have to do a hard restart. Is there anything I can do to get my ps2 games to work, a setting that I haven't seen? Or is it an issue with the spy cobra cfw? (not knocking spy cobra in any way, i understand it was put out fast for 4.85 and there may still be some growing pains) Just really looking to get my ps2 games working again.

    Home Page:
    Which model you have exactly? There was at least one report from CECH-C/E that ps2 games have issue.
    Can you test 4.84.2 Rebug to exclude hardware issue?
    Maybe we found kryptonite for that cfw.

    It is a CECHE01. Damn... the whole reason I did this was to play ps2 games while running cooler. I could try to install 4.84.2 rebug sure, is there a special way to downgrade from the 4.85? im very new to this and dont want to brick my system. Is there a link you can point me towards with some sort of tutorial? or would you be able to explain the process to me?

    update: ran into somebody else online who is having the exact same problem as me, and has the same model # - CECHE, so I wonder if its a model dependent issue? hard to say with just 2 examples, but its possible i guess. Is there any way to get in touch with the maker of spy cobra and ask if this can be looked at and possibly fixed?
