Dear members of PS3NETWORK,
I have purchased a used PS3 console (firmware 3.55) on eBay 3 days ago.
I checked the PS3 console, played games for 2 hours and didn't see any problem.
Then I did Jailbreak using the tutorial shown at :
I have followed all steps carefully and I also checked the PUP md5 of the patched PUP (2be5e87a22bf1e7f48e98fcabd38977b).
Then I have installed the modified PUP via the Recovery menu (because my PS3 said I already have the latest firmware) and I didn't encounter any errors/problems during the installation.
I could see /app_home/PS3_GAME/ and Install Package Files menu items at XMB so I guess the installation was successful.
Then I have installed Multiman 02.0.5.00 BASE (20110831-170000).pkg from one of the link shown on this site and the installation was successful.
Then I backup copied "Soul Calibur IV" into internal HDD using Multiman and I could play the game from the internal HDD OK.
Also, I could backup copy "Sonic Unleashed" into the external HDD using the Multiman.
But on the next day, when I tried to run "Sonic Unleashed" game stored at the external HDD I saw "Matrix" like screen coming up like the picture shown below and the PS3 freezes.
After that, everytime I restarted the game the Matrix Screens appeared during the game and PS3 freezes. I tried to go to Restoration mode in order to reset the console but even the restoration mode/program freezes and shows the Matrix screens.
Even worse, now when I press the power button, the PS3 console doesn't even show the screen and USB ports don't work at all - does not even recognize the game controller - Totally bricked.
So, my question is, please let me know what is causing this problem,
Is this caused by using the jail break software kmeaw on 3.55 or
Is this caused by using Multiman?
or is this caused by PS3 Graphics processor unit heating up?
The PS3 version is CECHG02.
Please give me the answers to my question.
