    So i got stuck in the update loop the other day cuz of a faulty BD, i wiped and formated the hdd afterwards put it back in, went into recovery mode and put a usb with a 3.56 OFW, the screen stays on Checking... Please wait. and it doesn't move from there, my USB drive is on FAT32 and is MBR and it was getting detected before no problem. When i go to the Restore PS3 option, the screen goes black and the console turns off, then i turned it on, stays on for a couple of seconds and then shuts off again. I've tried putting another 2.5" hdd but nothing changes. Is there a way i could fix this or is time to say goodbye? Thank you in advance!
