Thanks, thanks to all of you guys.

 

Hopefully this stands as a solution for some of the people who bricked their system updating to 2.5.

HELP!

 

I did brick my console and I can only see the wavy wallpaper with no xmb.

 

However, did I do something wrong while accessing the menu? I turned the ps3 on standby (red light) and held the power button and heard one beep, which was the display settings being reset. I continued to hold it and I heard another beep, which then lead to the ps3 being turned off and back onto standby. No 3 beeps.

 

Thanks for your help
