Just bought PS3 and updated it from 4.41 to 4.46 and now have freezing and more.

 Okay I just got a PS3 a few hours ago that was working fine. Had old firmware and updated to 4.46 after installing a new 320gb hard drive on my console. After I started getting freezing on boot and freezing at the wave without the XMB loading. After searching I found out about the 4.45 firmware problem and about how 4.46 was to fix the bricked console but that most still had this problem. Knew nothing of that beforehand and it to late now. I don't know what to do to fix this. Should I call Sony. I started the PS3 and it said my file system was corrupt so I let it do the restore and now its at only 21% after an hour and a half. How long is that supposed to take? Can I just turn it off while its doing this and plug my stock 80gb in it? Please any advice and info on this would be great.

 

P.S. I cannot use the safe mode menu as I do not have a controller with a home button so those fixes will not work..

What do you mean inserted your HDD? 4.46 messed up your old HDD and you replaced it with a new one? That fixed the issue?
