PS3 Firmware 4.45 FIX!!!!!

85 replies 46345 views Edited Jun 19, 2013

You first need to wait until tomorrow once sony uploads the fixed firmware to the playstation website.  Once they do you will need to bring up safe mode on your ps3 and re-install the firmware by selecting option 6.  

 

 

Do not do a file system restore it will fail!!!!  You will be foreced to reformat your system.  If you call sony they will tell you to do this so dont bother it does not work. So just wait until tomorrow and re-install the firmware fix.

You may be doing it wrong.  You need to make sure the ps3 is in stand by mode with a red light showing >> hold down the power button until it goes back into stand by mode again >>  Then hold the button down untill you hear two rapid beep sounds and let go

Yes, Safe Mode Access is:

1: Red Light (Standby)
2: Press and HOLD Power Button on Console
3: When you hear a Beep, KEEP HOLDING
4: When you hear a Second Beep, Wait a moment and Release Power.
5: Should be in Standby/Red Light Mode again
6: Press and HOLD Power Button on Console (A Second Time)
7: When you hear a Beep, KEEP HOLDING
8: When you hear Two Fast Beeps, Release Power Button Quickly

System Boots to Safe Mode
Attach USB Cable and Controller
Press PS Button

Warning: No Fix for 4.45 Bricks here yet though! Some Options in this menu will erase your messages, trophies, and even the entire hard drive. Use Only if you know what you're doing or if you've been told to do so.

To Fix the 4.45 Brick: (Most Likely)
Boot to Safe Mode (as Above)
...Wait for Fix/Patch Firmware...
Put on Flash Drive in /PS3/UPDATE
Insert Flash Drive
Select "6. Update Firmware" from Safe Mode Menu
Let Fix/Patch Install..

Verified with Sony online support.

 

If your console is bricked by update 4.41, wait until tomorrow when Sony posts a new, fixed update, then update via flash drive.
