    Backup manager black screen (Broken Blu-ray drive)?

    Hi all,

    I jailbreaked my PS3 a couple of days ago, with succes. Now I am trying for two days to get a backup manager working. All I get is a black screen. I jailbreaked my PS3 with PSFreedom. I don't know what to do, but my Blu-ray drive is broken, so I can't use a game to start Backup-manager.

    What to do?

    Have you tried different ports of the backup managers? try installing different ones, my preferred is Gaia, you can choose with L2 to boot with or without Blueray drive.

    Firstly can you mention what you are using to JB your PS3?

    Since you've said your using PSF then use PL3 as its the hermes equivalent and use one of the open back up manager such Gaia that supports playing games with broken blu-ray drives.

    Try running something else like pong. If it doesn't work, all you can do is sit and wait for someone to patch the XMB, because it requires some sort of check from the BD-ROM on launch...
