I still have a problem, if you help me i'll be grateful forever!
what i did
I installed CFW Ermac 4.30 v1.4, it worked fine but some days ago the hdd filesystem got damaged and ps3 asked me to auto-fix it, i sed yes but it failed so i used the "restore PS3 system" (format hdd and restore default settings) option of recovery menu.
doing this put my ps3 in semi-brick (not the situation i was talking earlier, that's another one xD)
Now my hdd is no longer recognised and at every startup my ps3 asks to install 4.30 fw and to format the hdd. i tried every firmware (4.25 dg of bluedisk, 4.30 ermac\E3\rogero\rebug and even 4.30\4.31 ofw): all of them are accepted but the ps3 always hangs at 99% while formatting the hard drive
solutions that didn't work (i already tried all of these things)
1) apply e3_downgrade from this guide \ enter in fsm (until here i succeeded) \ installing the 3.55 via FSM
2) patching my dump with flowrebuilder following this guide \ enter in fsm (until here i succeeded) \ installing the 3.55 via FSM
3) patching the dump using rogero's PS3_Nor_Dump_Auto_Patcher_v0.01 \ enter in fsm (until here i succeeded) \ installing the 3.55 via FSM
4) Applying the "Patchv1 by Three Musketeers" and format the hdd (still fails)
Anytime i try to install 3.55 or any other PUP using the Lv2diag.self it fails generating a 0 byte log file, is it possible the reason is that none of my usb are compatible wit this file? i remember i already used one of them to install 3.55 OFW (on another ps3) when i bricked in DEX2CEX
I'm sure my ps3 is in FSM as i tried launching preloader 3.1 to dump the nor and it worked perfectly
i tried 2 differents Lv2diag.self (these two) but none of them worked
i really don't know what to do! Please if you have ANY hints tell me, i'm desperate!
i can also say ps3 had 3.50 as factory firmware
