I am also getting the data corrupted 8002F2C5. Have not found a fix yet. I am on official firmware 3.55 and have reformatted and reinstalled several times. I have english selected as my default language and I do not have Kakarotoks custom firmware installed. I have a 60 GB PS3 that has PS2 backward compatibility. Anybody have any ideas?
I have tried both updating in XMB, and using r1 and original. The orginal gave me a different error code than the r1. And for some strange reason my ps3 will not update via XMB. I have had to use the custom menu to do all my updating for a while now.
After formatting my PS3 half a dozen times, and my flash drive just as many times it finally worked. I don't know what I did different, but one thing is for sure. My PS3 would not install geohot firmware via recovery menu. I had to flash it via XMB.

I don't know an awful lot about the ps3 as I don't own one but what is the difference between this jailkbreak and the dongles you can buy? Will there ever be a way of playing back ups with this jailbreak?
Sorry if they sound like stupid questions but I'm still learning all about the ps3. Thanks in advance guys
