Hi there folks,

I got a PS£ DECR-1400A from eBay. The machine starts but on the first screen it prompts me to connect the controller through a USB cable. When doing so on the next screen it states the system software cannot be run correctly. When I download firmware 2.6 from here (260.001 DECR) https://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/260.001_DECR, it states the data is corrupted.

Any steps I am doing wrong? How do you advice I proceed?

What version was it running? I find that on a 1000a trying to downgrade below 3.55 will fail unless it has been downgraded to 3.55 first. They changed something in the dev updates, probably encryption related.

Try using a more recent firmware file.

Dump the HDD first as an .img file before booting, otherwise the data that may be left on that console (read: potential dev builds of games or other goodies) could be overwritten and lost.

A newer firmware file may help you out with your issue, but I unfortunately cannot provide any more suggestions outside of that. But when you get it working after dumping you can Rebug it and dump the EID root key.
