Sorry for the late reply severusx, yes, I do have a Slim...I was reading that if I downgrade to a lower fw than 3.41 (ex 3.15), it may work and I tried that as well, but it sits on with the flashing green light when I did that...
I was also reading that we may use a debug 3.15 fw which may help, I dont know if I should be even using it as I am a normal user... if you know anything about it, then I am ready to try that as well...
And about the last update, I am the only user on the PS3, so I did it and I am 100% sure, I was on 3.55, then downgraded to 3.41.

on a usb stick download fw you want put it in a folder UPGRADE and put that in a folder PS3 and should be ok.. if not pull out your hdd plug into computer formatr then reinstall to ps3 and try it that way.

Thanks elser1 and bitsbubba... I will try the 3.40 OFW tonight and I am assuming that I need to put the console in Service Mode with the downgrader and try the downgrade with the Lv2 File one with the OFW...
If that fails, then I am going to format my HDD on a computer to NTFS and then put it back into the console, then try 3.55 OFW n CFW...
Yay!!! Finally, success! Thanks to all the people who answered my question, severusx, bitsbubba and elser1...
I downgraded to 3.40 OFW with the Lv2 File and it worked... then upgraded to 3.55 OFW and CFW...I am soo happy now...thanks again guys!
