4 replies 832 views Edited Oct 25, 2012
UGH!!!! Seems like everyone is having problems, some can sign into the psn and others can't -____- I for one can't even install the update without it giving me an error code or freeze at 99%...Smh I know it won't be fixed over night, but **bleep** is Sony doing? Are they trying to fix these issues?...I have to download assassins creed 3 from the psn store Tuesday

Fix it? They broke it so don't hold your breath. You might need to seek the help of third parties unless Sony wises up.

Too many games, too little time.

I had the problem yesterday and the error 8002F310 which caught the install in a loop. After trying everything and speaking to Sony I had to format my drive and install the update via USB Stick. I was just lucky that I installed Playstation Plus or I would have lost everything.

 

If you have problems and your only choice is to Format I can run you through the process.

 

Cheers

This "issue" has been around forever. The safest thing you can do when updating is DO NOT do it from the ps3, do it from a USB or removable media device. When you install a new update it is just like flashing the bios of a PC, if anything goes slightly wrong (power flux, hdd hiccup, corrupted file etc) you are screwed. This error is showing up to prevent the install from happening due it the conditions not being right for the flash process.

Go into safe mode and install the update via USB/PC method.
