I went into my attic yesterday and found an old PS3 that I put away for "later", and now that later has come I set it all up.
The PS3 itself works (had to tweak it around to get it to update to 3.41, but it works none the less), even ran the newest Jailbreak on it.
Big BUT here, BUT! it will not launch applications (homebrew) (No error code, just a black screen)
This can be replicated on any PS3 by removing the BD-ROM drive cable from any PS3. Anyone have any suggestions or solutions?
I already attempted to use another working BD-ROM, but the result were the same. (I came across this problem before, and it does the same thing for PSN titles... which pissed me off because that's the reason I bought the PS3)
