PS3 60GB will not go to Recovery help?
I have an older 60GB PS3. I had a hard disk go bad so I got a new one. I got the recovery menu to come up and then the reinstall hung up at 58%.
I now reformatted drive and even got some older 3.21 firmware on a usb stick. BUT I CAN'T EVEN GET THE RECOVERY MENU TO COME UP.
Is the double beep off and then two beep and quick double peep the only way to get to recovery menu?
Any help is appreciated.

What firmware was your PS3 before you tried the first time?

How to Access Playstation Recovery Menu
1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be promted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
If you were on 3.41, make sure you use the 3.41 (Fixed) PUP located here:

I don't fully follow your question, but I think that you said you had a RSOD on FW version 3.30, tried to downgrade the FW, and now you get nothing at all? Did you try to downgrade to an earlier version of the FW than 3.30? What model number is your PS3?
