Re: PS3 System Software Update 4.41

Apr 26, 2013
I say your best option is to leave it on and hope & preys it goes to 100% installed. Even if it take a day or 2. Better this way then spend the $99 to have it fixed. Not sure what the hang is cause from but leaving the system on and letting it take its time would be worth it to me. I have had at one time my system stuck at 99% but only for like 10 mins.

Im so tired of updates that dont do jack for me. At least back when PSP was getting updates theyd throw in a cool bone every once in a while. Hell my PS3 has been unplugged for a week (longest thats happened since it was sitting in a store) since I got a new phone, cant say Ive missed it. At least the phone has HBO GO and SHO.

I had the same problem, and I got it fixed. Here's what I did.

I bought another cheap hard drive off ebay, and a flash drive. I changed out the hard drive that was in it with the ebay one,  and downloaded the update onto the flash drive from online, and put the drive into the playstation. And when I started the playstation up it told me how to download the update from the flash drive.

After it downloaded it started up and had me set up the playstation like you do when you first get it.

After all that was done. I put the old hard drive back in, and the flash drive. Instead of just going to the install screen, like it did before, it let me download the update from the flash drive. So, now I still have all of my saved data from my original hard drive, and I didn't have to send those **bleep** $100 and be with out my playstation for god knows how long.

 

(keep in mind, I am pretty technologically illilerate, so there is probably an easier way to do all this, but this is what worked for me. I had no idea if it would work, but really happy that it did. Good luck, hope it works for you.)

You would think that sony would take responsibility for this. I mean, we're loosing our systems all because of a feature in the store. I'm having the same problem; I'm getting ready for school now, Imma see what happens when I come back....

 

...But if Sony is reading this; their update is pretty bugged for most users, that's apparent. But what astounds me is that these guys still want to get money from us! Can't you see we need help? We don't want to pay you and have you send back a broken PS3 (Which has happened to most users recently) Find a way to patch this! A BETTER way! Besides, if we wanted to pay over $100, we'd just buy a new PS3.
