    PS3 formatted HDD with data corrupted 8002f157 help?

    Hi all,

    Few days ago, I decided to go from a jailbreaked fat ps3 (with psbreak v1.2 dongle) - back to OFW.

    I formatted the hard-drive and went to update mode - after trying few times with few OFW- I still got the 8002F157 error. It says to enter any FW that is higher then 3.56...

    Any solution?

    Uhm. Try to use service mode, and install 3.41 OFW from a dongle, PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP, if still not working, try with Power kept till 3 beeps, and choose 6 for update. After, go out from service.

    if you have changed your hard drive put the original one back in an try updating... the 3.56 update killed a lot of ps3's that updated without the original hard drive... i just got mine back from being serviced by $ony... cost me $100... i had the same issue but didn't have original hard drive to fix it.

    As much as I understand from forums - even if I have the original HDD but I formatted it - i'm stuck...

    You cannot (currently) downgrade a 3.73 PS3 without the usage of a NAND flasher device.

    Wondering.. Did you use the emergency menu, then tried to update to 3.56, maybe? Why 3.56? Over all, what firmware are you using? 3.73?

    I was on 3.41. Bought Gran Turismo 5 and it asked me to update to 3.56 (through the game disk)- did that, it got to 100% and after words there was a little pause and then the error message "update data corrupted (8002F157)"

    As part of the solution- I formatted the HD - first through PS3 and after I saw that it didn't help- I formatted trough the PC. Now I understand that I shouldn't do that...

    Does anyone here know of someone that sorted this out?

    Uhm. Well, download manually the 3.73 firmware, and push power button till 3 beeps. When you get emergency menu, choose 6, and install from usb your new OFW. Easy, isn't it?
