Hi - if anyone has any ideas or thoughts on the below they would be very much appreciated.
I bought a second hand PS3 without blu-ray drive for use as a media center. Being a noob at this, I went ahead and upgraded from 3.42 to 3.5, and obivously without the Blu-ray drive, the update fails around the 70% mark.
I had a logic board which was supposed to be matched to the mb, and used the blu-ray player from another ps3 connected to the logic board,however either it was not the correct logic board, or there is a connection problem with the ribbon cable into the motherboard (the clip has broken off) but I was unable to get the update to finish.
I have tried different hard drives and managed to get into the restore menu, but can't do anything from there even with firmware on a usb stick.
I'd be happy to get back to 3.42 if I could somehow wipe the upgrade call. But just wondered whether anyone had any ideas or is this one consigned to the bin?
Thanks in advance
