PS3 "Recovery Mode" discovered
 

 
This mode allows you to restore the Playstation 3 after a bad update for example...

This is due to mishandling that our member 1ra2 fell on a "menu recovery". I can already see some hands rose to ask: "but what is it exactly?"

In short, this is some sort of life insurance on your Playstation 3. In case of problems, mishandling, or for example if you turn off your Playstation 3 for an update and subsequently your console does responding to what it is, this mode provides functions that could save your PS3 in case of failure.
In trying to reboot the console and supported a few seconds remaining on the Power button, 1ra2 that fell on this:

It is certainly from the latest Firmware 2.50. A function really interesting and very useful to avoid many peoplefrom having to send thier console after sales service.
In addition our dear member offers a video of his find:

A good initiative from Sony in any case, but why hasn't it been announced in the news? Now it remains to be seen if this method works properly when real problems arise.

As luck would have it My friend at work actually had a broken PS3 (it wasn't letting him access any part of the xmb except the game area...couldn't go to the PSN store nothing)...so we tried it on his...and the menu came up saying sytem restore and asked if we wanted to do this (almost exactly like MS system restore) and we said yes and it came back up..only thing that sucked is everything he saved on his memory card since the day we set it to restore at was deleted...so he lost some game info...but honestly that's a small price to pay for the system to work properly now...


If I had like a ton of trophies or had some game save that I didn't want to lose for whatever reason...I'd make a back up of the game saves on another memory card BEFORE doing this...
