    That's the basic plan. I'm ignoring his calls, and I've emailed him saying that I can try and Google for solutions, but if he's bricked it and it doesn't still boot up there are no solutions AFAIK.

    An idiot. Thatís who.

    Donít want cfw donít buy. Simple

    Why should you waste your time. He bricked it not your fault.

    So the guy sent me like 8 emails overnight. Amongst them he mentioned error code 8002F334. 5 minutes of reading Google later:

    https://www.fixya.com/support/t25851..._code_8002f334

    So, yank the HD and reformat it and it'll work. Sounds like Sony built some exploit checks into their OFW installer.

    Truly bizarre situation. Does CFW command a bit of a premium? If it does, even weirder.

    Indeed it does. I asked $80CAD for a old fat non-BC system, with the old stock 80GB HDD, and a totally thrashed controller. Basically the most worthless setup a PS3 can get. I can see one on Craigslist right now that comes with some physical extras and nothing looks thrashed for $50.

    The only thing I know about Japanese law is that Judgement is a kickass game.

    Yesterday I sold off a old CFW PS3 I had laying around to a random guy. He's all like "oh I don't even want CFW, can I remove it?" I tell him "yeah sure, just install official firmware from Sony and format the drive, and it's all gone". Some quick Googling now to confirm, and yeah, that's 100% correct. This morning, he left me a voicemail, it sure sounds like he bricked the system.
    God ****ing dammit. Who buys a CFW system, just to do the dumbest thing you can do to it, and then immediately brick it.
    An idiot.

    I feel for wrongly convicted folks but this is up to the Japanese to change or not.
