PS3 stuck in demonstration mode 2.80

I just purchased a used ps3 and found out that it is stuck in demonstration mode 2.80. i found out about the code to unlock it temporarily but want to know if/how i can change to the standard ps3 firmware permanently. i tried to download the ps3 latest update onto a flash drive- did the whole creating the 2 folders, all in caps-but the ps3 said that there was no applicable update on it. So I was wondering if someone could help me come to a solution about it, so i don't have to enter the code every time i want to do something. Thanks!

Visit the Playstation3 website and download the lastest version onto a flash drive. Making sure you dont have any other software/files on the flash drive.

Create a folder on the flash drive in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the flash drive or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Install the playstation update into that folder. "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
Your console SHOULD now reconise the update.
If nothing changes restore the playstation fully to its default status.

Hey there, just bought a ps3 off a mate of mine. Everything works well, but cant change any settings as it keeps coming up "Not allowed to whilst in Demo mode. Also, just bought an adaptor for my memory...


Hold L1, R1, and select simultaneously when the security settings icon is selected in the XMB. Then it'll ask for you to input a code. 5-2-0-2, This will unlock it from demonstration mode.

If it's a PAL PS3, well sorry I dont know the code.

I've got a ps3, it's got demonstration mode. How can I get rid of this mode?


this is what i've found
"I successfully updated my legitimately-purchased "demo" PS3 via Ethernet to demonstration firmware 2.10 after entering the password "5202". However, please note that this is STILL demonstration firmware and must be unlocked at EVERY power-on. (Oddly, the password changed to 2464 after the update.)

Even then, many features, including the PlayStation Store and folding@home, are blocked!! After exhaustive research and effort, including replacing and rezeroing the hard drive (no effect), attempting to update via CF and Memory Stick ("No Valid Update info found"), and physical examination of the logic board itself for a reset button or removable jumper (no such luck), I concluded that there is no practical way to do it. The Samsung NAND flash firmware chip is soldered, not socketed, so essentially not replaceable without extremely delicate work (assuming one could find a replacement chip anyway!)."
You cant really do anything at this point. return it to the store and get a refund.

PS3 Retail Demo Mode


In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2


than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number


1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259

and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode.
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive

so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system!!
