OK i got the ps3 back up and running, it was a HDD issue, after removing it I re-partitioned it and formatted to FAT32, it doesn't really matter as the ps3 will format it before installing the new firmware. I was then able to install Rebug 4.46.1

Thanks haze67 for taking the time to reply

wendywitch you can go into Recovery but any PUP is giving corrupt errors?

this pup's LV0 is a total mess, it starts with the "Applying LV0 ECDSA Disable patch on LV0" that isn't used for DB-OFW, but it's totally patched wrong! thus u can't even extract the loaders from it:

"failed to verify header of lv1ldr" ... Either use PS3MFW, or check PM and give it a shot.

did you try all Downgraders? incl the HABIB999DGR? it's 355 so only use it when the PS3 can go 355, report back if it takes this PUP and how is someone gonna fix this from 455 and the FSM dongle?

i'm sure it won't trigger FSM on it, should it work u must go to 431 or 355 anyway to EXIT FSM

ps: oh and its lame releasing stuff like this, when it's the easiest one to make lol

to those posting, no one is crying or moaning. In the original post there was no mention of it not being tested or requiring a Flasher, that was only mentioned in the next release, yes I did jump too early. clearly!

I'm just looking to try and sort the issue out. so if anyone has some relevant information that would be great. stuck in recovery and getting error trying to install any CFW or 3.55 OFW.

because they see a new 'CFW' & are like, OMG must install this NAOOOOW, skip the texty part as there wont be anything useful in there, only read 4.55 CFW, and then BAM!!!! ps3 broken

And then cry online because so-and-so broke their ps3.
