Hard drive upgrade question
Update: My issue is resolved!
I have a pretty simple question.
My PS3 has a 250Gb Hard drive, and I want to replace it with a 1TB HD. I'm on Rogero 3.1. I went through the E3 flasher process, so putting the new 1TB HD on the E3 Sata doc should be fine.
Will it work if I just format the new hard drive to fat32, and then copy the old 250Gb hard drive contents onto it?
Or is there something else I need to do?
You will have to use the backup utility in the system settings of the xmb. To backup your hdd to an external hdd.
Then install the new hdd, and when you turn on the ps3, it will say it needs to format and install firmware.
Make sure to install Rogero cfw at that part, if you have not dehashed your console. If you didn't dehash and install any other firmware, you will brick.
Then after you have the new hdd installed and firmware installed. Go back to the backup utility and restore your backup of the old hdd, from the external hdd.
I would suggest dehashing the syscon checks on your console. The downgrade procedure is not complete until you do. You can do this by following the guide below from the spoiler "Qa flag".
I'll have to think hard about whether I'll try this because I'm in a botched install of Rogero cfw 3.1.
So - when I ran through your method in the QA spoiler, the "Toggle QA" beeps and returns to the menu. I went to Network settings and pressed down on the pad, L1,L2,L3,R1,R2. And I now have the Edy Viewer, *Debug Settings and *Install Package Files under the Settings menu. - Was this the dehashing you meant?
Just to double check, right after I did the Toggle QA steps, I tried to downgrade to OFW 3.55 again, following your guide with condor - but in the recovery menu I got the message "Connect storage media that contains update data of version 4.11 or later, and then press the START and SELECT buttons at the same time."
So, right now, I can play backup games, but I can't downgrade (or restore the old bios apparently) with the condor updater or with the E3 flasher. I get that error message about installing 4.11 or higher. So... yeah I don't know if I can mess with anything. I'm probably lucky that I don't have a brick right now.
