I'm also getting an error message "The data is corrupted. (8002F2C5)".
I had the same problem ("corrupted data") after trying it with two different memory sticks. I ended up doing a quick format on one making it at FAT32 (not FAT or NTFS) and I was able to load the Update PUP from the native PS3 System Update menu right away. Didn't even have to bother with Recovery Mode.
this might be a stupid question, but does this mean that these new PUP files will do the same on fw 3.55 as what we are able to do on 3.41 or have things not progressed to that stage...
sorry if that is a silly question but i find it difficult to understand the programming side of things.
thanks in advance
1 - Make sure you are on official 3.55. You can install the official 3.55 PUP onto any CFW 3.55
2 - Make sure PS3 language is set to English
3 - Install this from the XMB, not recovery menu
Ok, so I think I fixed the problem with geohots app crashing.
#1. Use the correct command-line:
ie. make_self_npdrm elf self contentid --> make_self_npdrm blackboxftp.elf EBOOT.BIN BB0011111
#2. Make sure the elf your using will work. I was using the elf that sony sdk creates, but geohot tools didn't like it. Take the self sony sdk creates, unself it, and make_self_npdrm works.
The next step is to pkg the files, and obviously the sony tools don't like the EBOOT.BIN I'm supplying now. A little help here is appreciated. What command would I use with makepkg (usage: makepkg [key suffix] [version] filename.pkg dir_with_files). I tried makepkg retail 3.55.0 filename.pkg dir_with_files.
Opps, contentid actually looks like this --> IP9100-BB0011111_00-0000111122223333. Also can't use makepkg as it's for firmware, gonna download PSL1GHT for cygwin.
Dont know if this is been posted already. Cannot find it so here it is: blackb0x's PS3 FTP Server v1.2 for geohot's 3.55 jailbreak.
