    Hi,

    I have a ps3 slim which was on 3.73 and i was messing with it and the e3 flasher.
    I now have the option to upgrade to original 3.73 in which i tried with the hard drive back in the ps3 and the e3 flasher out.
    It loads but then i get the error 8002f157.
    How can i fix this?
    I read i need the original hard drive that the ps3 came with as the one in it now is 750gb.

    All i did was whilst ps3 is in standby hold down the power button and ps3 will power on then you will hear 2 beeps and ps3 will shut down.
    Hold power button down again and you should hear 2 beeps from ps3 then release the button.
    After pressing a button on ps3 control you will get a menu and you can select what to do from there.

    Cheers
