Error 8002F1F9 Help, Require Modified pup to bypass bluray
I have a PS bought in the US, manufactured in 2008.
Model Number: CECHE01
Current Original version 4.20.
Warranty: Out of warranty
Problem: Error Update Loop 8002F1F9
1. Tried but Failed Solutions: Searched a lot for solutions online. I have checked and double checked all my internal wire connections of the wifi card and the blu ray.I have also tried switching the ends of the wire but doesn't work still.
2. I have removed the hard disk, formatted with NTFS, gone into recovery mode and tried system update using external usb (FAT 32). Tried this 4 times but same update error loop pops up. I have downloaded the firmware version (PS3UPDAT.PUP file) 4.31 from ps3 site.
3. Update error loop at 74%. So I checked http://forums.cvxgameconsolerepair.c...hp?f=12&t=1951 which says its a bluray check problem. I checked my wire connections again, but it gets stuck at the same error still.
One Solutions mentioned at the above link is to use a modified PS3UPDAT.PUP which bypasses the bluray check.
If someone could please help me get this, I'll owe this to them big time. I've tried searching a lot for a modified PUP but all of them ask me to downgrade to 3.55.
I've read on the sticky thread in this forum that its not possible to downgrade without a hardware reset.
Any advise and direction towards getting it fixed will be highly appreciated.

Try this. Remove the blu ray drive from the ps3, then take out the pcb board from underneath and keep that attached with the blu ray ribbon and power cable /but without the blu ray drive. Then update the ps3 from recovery on the lowest version that it allows (aka the version that it was on before the problems) which in your case sounds like 4.21 or perhaps 4.30. I had the exact same issue with my old 60gb and this seemed to fix it. Lastly make 100% sure that the blu ray ribbon is properly secure (I held mine down throughout the update).
Other than that it could be the blu ray pcb, that would be difficult to repair/replace.
