    Question [Answered] PS3 in 3.56 service mode help?

    Sponsored Links
    my ps3 is stuck in service mode 3.56. what will happen if i update it to the new 4.21 custom firmware directly from the service mode. Any suggestion except hardware flashing?

    And i cant play games from the original ps3 discs as well. GTA 4 gets stuck at the rockstar icon. what to do??

    Once you enter Factory Service Mode in any FW above 3.55 you are stuck there. No one has figured out a way to get out of it, not since i last heard neways... Time for you to invest in a new PSthree... 4.21/4.25/4.30 CFW is Great by the way ! See you when you get there !

    I suggest your try and go back to 3.55 as updating to a Custom Firmware that is 3.55 encrypted will probably have the same result.

    Remember, the chances of bricking are extremely high so you do not have to listen to me nor am I responsible. 3.56 is highly unstable and you stuck either way.

    Can't you just re-flash the 3.55 dump? In that case you would need a hardware flasher such as Progskeet or E3. Haven't tested this, but a flasher is cheaper then a new PS3, so It might be worth It. I'll search and see if anyone has tried this.
