I have a serious problem (I guess). I have a Phat PS3. I have a RSOD and if I want to go into the FSM to do fix it my PS3 just shuts down after the 2 beeps. I don't think it is my hardware because before I get the RSOD it is as if it wants to start. I can see the initial screen and the wave and goes to RSOD after. I can also turn off the PS3 with the Controller (see the screen to select controller or PS# power off)
One other thing is that I had the PS3 ultimate ware on it. This is the screen I see when it starts up (Black back ground, the wave and the "transformaer" sound) No menu though. and then RSOD.
I tried the PSP downgrade ...no dice. Is there anyway I can get the FSM back? I don't care if I need to rest or flash from scratch.
P.S. I also performed a low level format of my HHD and even reformatted it to FAT32 on my PC. SSDD.
Thanks in advance for showing me the right direction.
