And I checked my HDD and there are no bad sectors and its not failling!
Now that you have restored your PS3 to Rogero v3.1, you should dehash the syscon checks.
You can do this by following the guide below, starting from the spoiler "Qa flag".
After that you will be able to install any CFW you want. I don't know if it will help your problem, but it is worth a shot. Not to mention it will prevent you from bricking it again.
