got this and tried installing this I'm now stuck in recovery mode. tried reinstalling rebug and 3.55 OFW but get message "a serious error has occurred contact technical support for assistance (8002f281)."

I've also tried reformatting the HDD, is there any fix, update or any suggestions on what I should now try, or is the ps3 bricked RetroA?
any help is appreciated.

LOL I also think that since the release of Cobra 7.00 (4.46) and 4.53 Cobra (Habib and Steven) not many people will love conventional CFW.

the cobra has been added a bunch lovely things that non cobra can't. Hishamage ? he also brick many system.

I wont gamble here, i will use only tested CFW.

no offense, just my humble opinion.
