    hey i have a fat ps3 that someone gave me and it has this red screen of death on it. i have tried to restore the firmware although it asks for 3.70. i have a jailbreak dongle and pen drive although i dont think this method would work due to 3.70 firmware its asking for. i have tried to boot to the recovery console, have tried ALL of the options with no luck. the only one that partially works is the system update option. it formats the ps3 hd then attempts to install the 3.70 fw. it gets to 45% immediatly jumps to 100% reboots then i get the red screen of death. i have also tried to install a new 80gb sata hard drive and attempted all of the above steps and received the same red screen of death again. is there anything i can do at this point or is it a black brick?

    You might have better luck in the help section as apposed to cluttering a tutorial.
