please, can someone tell me how to exit factory/service mode??
i just test on my ps3 3.41, and now it is in service mode and i need to boot in normal mode.
thanks in advance
12. Insert USB flash drive back into the same USB port on the PS3 and power on your PS3. After 10 seconds it will power off.
13. Remove USB flash drive and turn on your console again. You will be out of factory service mode and back in retail mode with your chosen firmware version installed. You will need to go through setting up settings configuration.
already tried to downgrade to 2.10. Didn't help. Then updated to 3.15 - didn't help. Updated to 3.41 - didn't help.
Even update to 3.50 doesn't solve problem.
Put the *.self from the folder File 2 of the downgrader folder in the root of your USB stick. Plug it in in your right USB port und boot. Ps3 will go off within 10 secs. Next time you turn it on you are in normal mode.
No matter what I tried, my PC won't detect my Ps3 Break. I read in the tutorial that it would be available in Windows Device Manager, though unistalled, but my pcs won't detect it. And then, when I load flip (following the tutorial) it says that the associated DLL cannot be loade. Any ideas?
I didn't know about this.
I'm need some help here I want to update my ps3 to 3.41, what fw should i use? the fixed or the non fixed?
well, i've copied whole folders dev_flash, dev_flash2, dev_flash3 to PC from downgraded PS3 with broken BD playback (FW 3.41) and another my PS3 which never been downgraded (FW 3.41). Compared both sets of all files using CRC (examdiff Pro). There are differences only in 3 files: xRegistry.sys, DRL1, DRL2. I've replaced these files on downgraded PS3 with files from other PS3 and it didn't help.
I'm sure there is something has been written to BD firmware while update and thus messing with PS3 flash files is just useless.
BD firmware is overwritten while update according to log file and there is some region code writting is present in logs on those PS3 with broken BD playback after downgrade.
Unless somebody will dig into BD firmware to patch it (and would be good to make it region-free) we won't fix BD playback!
I'm having problems during downgrading... The power green light flashes and the console doesn't turn off... so I can't proceed to the next step (past only the Lv2diag.self in USB drive to exit service mod) I need help!
I just want to know what is the solution, because now I'm stuck
