Oh and all of this was done without the drive plugged in. I'm not sure where to proceed from here. I would like to update it to the latest Rogero but I know updating from the Recovery menu without the Blu-ray drive will not work.
In baileys guide, it clearly states "DO NOT DO THE SERVICE MODE WAY AS I AND OTHERS GET RLOD EVERYTIME IT IS DONE"
I'm guessing I SHOULDN'T try restoring to 3.55OFW or updating to Rogero 4.3 using the FSM method with the dongle?
Is there any way I can update to Rogero 4.30 without using the Recovery menu? I followed your FSM downgrade guide which appears to have worked! System is now on Rogero CFW 3.1. The steps in de-hashing require recovery menu which isn't gonna work for me.I think the drive sensor is bad. The other ribbons look fine to me. I'm just glad to be back on the XMB for now. Trying to figure out what to do now...
What firmware are you on now?
That model you can update without the drive installed. Since the logic board is built into the motherboard.
I would say put your drive back together, and put it back in your PS3. Update to Rogero 4.30 and do the blu ray fix in multMAN like baileyscream suggested.
Make sure Qa flag is toggled on, with the button combo before you update. It should of already been toggled on, because I left it on. But if you ran toggle qa app, then it toggled off.
