1- (Solved) the ps3 randomly takes me to the (connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the ps button) screen, once i do that, the next screen (The system software cannot be run correctly. Press the PS button to try to restart the system ..... ....) i press the PS button it starts normally, this problem happens randomly (gaming, Netflix...), sometimes the ps3 is doing something all day and no problem, sometimes it works for an hour or something then it happens! again its random! and it doesn't show any errors or anything, it simply closes the game or whatever I'm doing and goes there! 2- (Solved) all my friends on psn are grayed out and have a red x next them, it doesn't show if they are online or offline, also i cant send or receive any messages or friend requests, i can see people requests but accepting them doesn't work, BUT everything works on the PSN app on my phone! Im on (REBUG_4.81.2_REX), (webMAN 1.47.04 MOD) , (CcApi_2.70_Rev6), (R2+triangle to access psn) any idea what causes any of the above problems, btw i didnt do anything to solve it yet! PS3 Update: (Problrm 2) Managed to fix my second issue (Not being able to send or receive messages from my PS3), BY deleting the following folders (using Filezella) /dev_hdd0/home/0000000x/community and /dev_hdd0/home/0000000x/friendim x= all profiles. PS3 Update: (Problem 1) Since i took off my PS3 from the DMZ mode, and after deleting the files (photo.scr and Info.zip), Thr PS3 is running no issues or random error, or taking me to mod! cheers.
