Ouch. Was that on option 3?
Hey, these things happen
Once the file system corrupt message came up after choosing "restore file system" and it being damaged beyond repair and needing a format, well nothing would work.
Tried all options in recovery menu and all would just hang, including install system software so...have now downgraded and just about to re-install 4.30 V2.0 on final step again....
600GB of stuff gone but there we go, all good now and it's resolved the problem
Cheers, at least I know how to get into the recovery menu now
...probs the issue in the first place, installed 4.30 V2.0 in the XMB first time.
