Hello everyone, after a hard disk failure I had to replace the ps3 drive with a new one. Now I have to restore the system completely, but I am unable to. Even the recovery mode is not working. I always get the error that a higher or equal firmware version is needed on the usb stick. I put the latest rebug firmware, which was aslo installed before, on the stick (PS3/UPDATE/->PS3UPDAT.PUP). I appreciate any help, where no flash device is needed. Thank you very much.
