Would you be willing to answer a few brief questions about PlayStation Forums?
i was wondering witch would be the safest way to update my ps3 .. the the console itself or through usb...i want to update it to 4.31 but i hear about it freezing and then corrupting the console
Go to Solution.
You don't need to update to 4.31.... its an optional update.
yeah ik that i was just wondering what everyone thought on really any update expecially this one .. so would usb or console update be safer
USB/PC and using Safe Mode for the install
I updated mine through iphone tethering, it took 4 freaking hours to complete the download but it worked.
i needed the update because my game needed the update as well. -.-
not a good move doing it with a iphone like that and i would strongly advise against it next time...next time you may not be so lucky and corrupt your ps3
