    well.... try recovery menu to see if you can still install a different cfw... as for cfw don't install unknown cfw... either rebug or rogero would be fine really.... what you should have done is install normal 3.55 and do a QA flag that at least could have saved you with a compatibility with other cfw... anyway... a brick cannot be fixed... unless you have a flasher and even then you should have made a copy of the nor chip before installing a cfw... shame really.... if only you came here before installing it i could have told you what to do...

    its bricked... well at least is not bad as red screen... nothing you can do right now...

    it should.. green yellow 3 beeps red blinking that's what you get when you flash cfw that's not been tested.. using multiman and doing flash backup before installing cfw is the best...

    it can be reflashed... but you need a backup of it first... lol plus you also need a flasher...

    nope super slim cant run cfw... you messed up the flash that's why the ps3 cant boot right... see the ps3 has this chip... its only 16mb not big... but it holds the right info to boot up the ps3... even if you pull the hdd out it will still work... the problem is once that chip goes bad either to damage or bad flash the ps3 cant boot... and to do a backup in it state only a flasher can do those cost around 80 bucks... and even then no telling in what state the flash is in... that's why you do backups before installing a cfw... and no getting a different backup from another ps3 will only make it worse..

    Why do people install these crappy MFW's >.<

    Habib, Rogero or Rebug are the only worthy MFW's.

    Yeah these guys need to really do some research before going around and flashing any custom firmware they see. The Only firmware I trust is Rogero and Rebug. Even those I don't go and flash right away until about a few weeks when other users test it out first.
