    i updated yesterday , all went well, shut off ps3 turned on today and i get this screen after plug ps3 controller into usb

    "if system cannot be restarted you must reinstall system software connect storage media that contains update version 4.21 or later press start and select at same time"

    its not a rebug screwup but i have a sata harddrive connected as internal w/ a wire connector. has always been a problem if i bump it. have had it happen w/ kmeaw 3.55 before so i just reformatted w/ofw 3.55 then back to kmeaw 3.55 well i bumped the wire and now this message. what am i to do , can i hit start select and update w/ rebug on flashdrive cause otherwise if i have to use ofw then i think its looking for 4.21 now not 3.55 so i would be screwed cause i cant get to xmb screen to downgrade to rebug 3.55 pls help

    you can always try the rebug downgrader 9.99 and see if that helps.

    Punctuation has been invented for a reason.

    REBUG 4.21 IS a 3.55 CFW like all the CFW out there.
