I updated my ps3 and it will not even start up to the xmb. Just freezes on the default background. Anyone else having problems? I am located in the USA EST, if that is relevant.
Same here. Installed update and now when the home screen loads up it last about 3 seconds and then freezes. There's no way I'd even be able to install a patch cause it wouldn't let me get that far. Looks like a master reset is gonna be needed. Goodbye to a whole week of saved dishonored games!
I'm getting exactly the same. I can navigate the XMB but as soon as I select anything like trophies or a game it'll crash.
I wonder how we'll be able to download the fix for this if we can't even start the system.......
Ive now tried rebuilding the database and reinstalling the update from a usb stick in safe mode but still not joy, just a frozen screen. Ive got a old style chunky 40gb ps3. Do anyone of you have the same or different ones?
done it. and the 4th option too in safe mode. Makes no difference. Rang Sony, who told me that it sounds like it's broke but because it's out of warrenty it'll cost me £110 to fix it! THEY BROKE IT!!
Do you have a spare 2.5" internal SATA drive? If so install this HDD in your PS3 and see if it works fine.
NOTE: The PS3 will format the new HDD thus erasing all data on it. If you have any data on it that you care for then back i up before installing it.
i've been dealing with this issue since two updates ago. So i will tell you my experience with it till they do find a fix. I can usually get the system to run eventually by doing the hold power button thru the video reset then off, then again till the second beep (before safemode) and releasing. It takes a couple tries but eventually it gets up and running like normal. Also i have only managed to really update properly via memory card thru safemode. And you seem to be one of the few that got the full 4.30 update to take. Mine still hangs at 99% even with safemode. But I just want you to know there is hope without reseting your system.
