Re: Problem after update to 4.45

Jun 21, 2013

As frustrating as this is (my 1tb PS3 slim is affected) Sony will do everything in it's power to correct this. It's just good business sense.

 

The more information they give out, the more hassle they'll get.

 

The only sure thing they can say is that they've fixed the problem.

 

Wait and that will happen.

 

Remember, Sony is a multi-billion dollar corporation.

 

Nobody employed by them will be allowed to say anything without being vetted by the Public Relations and Legal teams.

 

We can't expect blog updates from the tech team, that simply can't happen.

 

In big buisiness like Sony and Microsoft everything happens behind a virtual legal firewall.

 

I just pity the poor guys/gals working hard to fix this. So much money is involved that it must be horrible to be responsible for fixing it.

 

Anyway, just my two cents.

 

Babble.

Re: Problem after update to 4.45

If someone has the original 4.45 firmware update file I would love to look at it.

There seems to be a bunch of .pup reader/viewer programs.

I know 1,800,000 lines of code is alot to look over, but I'm sure I can narrow down the problem quicker than Sony...

Compare 4.41 to 4.45, the computer would do 99% of the work for me. The updates are broken down into different files

but while the .pup file is encrypted it looks like one big scary file.

WHERE ARE YOU 4.45 FILE!

Just saying.

Quick solution that I suggested a couple of days ago in the Russian and English Forum Europe: recompilation Sony programmers 4.41 as 4.46, giving people the opportunity to enjoy the PS3, and only then look for the cause of the problem. But no one listens.

It doesn't exist on Sony's site, but there was at least one third-party site hosting a copy of it.  It was linked here earlier, but that's hard to find now amongst thousands of other posts.  I'd like to find it too.  If this issue doesn't get a real fix by this weekend, I'm going to want to try swapping back to my old drive.  For all of us already on 4.45, swapping requires having 4.45 to load on the new drive.

But 4.41 doesn't include any code for removing 4.45 features (which after all, didn't even exist when 4.41 was written).  Sony has to first find the problem so they can write a patch to remove it.  Previous versions don't remove it.
