Update 4.45, Quick Word of Warning

45 replies 993 views Edited Jun 19, 2013

Seems people are having issues with the new firmware update, where your console completely bricks after downloading the firmware itself. The issue itself appears to be mostly affecting those who have upgraded HDDs for their PS3s as well as those who have 1 TB hard drives. If you don't fall into either category you should be able to install the firmware just fine, but if you do I would hold off on the update if you haven't installed it yet.

I'm gonna attempt to install the update seeing how I havent touched my HDD since I bought my system 4 years ago. Its been said out of the box systems that haven't been modified should be okay to update. Still a bit nervous though :smileysad:

Thanks for the notice. However, I had no issues after installing the new update on my 1934 850kb HD PS3.   :smileytongue:

If you're worried then you're better off just waiting. 

Some people said the model I have, slim 160 gig, worked fine. But I'm still not risking a brick.

Better to be safe than sorry.

Holy crap i began to download it and to install but read this and cancelled the installment..wooow..talk about luck....

To live in the 50's is to not dream of the future. To live in the future is to dream of the 50's. To acknowledge change is to invite it into your life. To live with simplicity is to enjoy the easy things in life...You decide your lifestyle. :smileyhappy:
