My console AND account got banned because I went online with it. I did NOT play games online, just was on PSN with a CFW console and they banned me.
So if you want to risk going online to play backups its always your own risk. They will ban you for the smallest thing. As I said I did nothing just have CFW installed and got banned.
It was 3.55CFW that I had installed. The one that if you flashed OFW3.55 there was no proof a CFW was installed at all and they banned me.
Upgraded to 4.53, PS3 possibly bricked help?
I updated my ps3 with HABIB's 4.53 CEX CFW update and my PS3 failed to update. Now it reboots every time into safe mode, and i have tried updating with any other CFW update, but it wont work.
Any suggestions on what to do? And how do i get my PS3 back into "normal" again?
Help will be very appreciated
M8 just 2 posts lower is nearly same thing , why ppl go to 4.53 its pointless and bricks building up , try other 4.53 cfw , try rebuilt database , if console is NOR try swap hdd , otherwise is hardware flasher.
Sorry, i searched and couldn't find the post
How do i rebuild the database, and if it comes to swapping hdd - how do i do that and how can i see if it's NOR?
first i think you should click restore default while in safe mode then reboot then click restore ps3 then use a downgrader pup file or a 4.53 cfw like mine or stevens or someones
Is your ps3 a phat or slim? Slim = NOR
The hard drive is held in by one blue screw on the slim. You need to first lift the small square covering on the bottom of your unit and then you will see it. Once you have removed that screw the front faceplate where the hard drive is slides out to the right.
Below is a video explaining the process:
Hope it helps and good luck
metzen you are right and bit wrong , fat models have been NOR as well in fact all models from CECHHxx onwards are NOR
can anyone please upload the pup?
i cant unzip on this pc.
i'll try it

I didn't include this in my cfw because it gives you controller synch issue if controller not connected through usb cable.
Savedata, iso running etc are cool
