    ALL of my installed games (bought ones as well) and homebrews won't start, it will just stay at a black screen. Reinstalling the packages didn't help.
    This just happened for seemingly no reason, I don't really know what caused it.
    Though right before this, I tried copying a file into a game's folder (in /dev_hdd0/game/) over ftp. I can't see why this would cause it though.

    I have also tried restoring filesystem and rebuilding database but that didn't help.

    Try to make an ISO out of the game and run it through multiman

    You need a cobra firmware though

    Make sure System Mode is Rebug and Cobra Mode is Enabled inside Rebug Toolbox.

    I can't start toolbox so can't check but I'm pretty sure both settings is set to this.

    Ok if you can't start homebrew something is messed up, reinstall the same CFW you are on. Make sure you choose the correct type DEX or CEX.

    Trying to install through recovery now, though it keeps getting stuck at Checking...

    EDIT: what the fuck it took 20 minutes to find the one single file on the entire drive. There's literally only one file on it.

    EDIT2: Getting 8002F14E, maybe it's the bd drive? Anyway I can't even try updating with the noBD PUP now, how do I get out of this update loop?

    Yep, it was the BD drive cable. It's almost broken, but squeezing it in the socket worked.
