Re: [FEEDBACK REQUESTED] 4.25 Firmware Update Issues

Sep 14, 2012

I have a 74 gig PS3 Don't remember if I had 4.21, but I think i did.

System freezes in game, in youtube, in amazon, in netflix.

SO ANNOYING!!!

This started IMMEDIATLEY after the 4.25 update.

I want to roll back to 4.20, but cannot find a link to download it onto my jump drive to install that way. Can you please post one in the meantime so we are all  not driven crazy by this and it doesn't dmage our systems?

Finally! Someone acknowledges the problem. I tried to call Sony shortly after the update, and was blown off by a supervisor, telling me there have never been any issues with any updates. Obviously, two things happened. Either the supervisor was completely ignorant of the company's history, or I was flat out lied to. Either way, it's not good.

 

I have the original 60gb big backwards compatible PS3. No alterations have been made. I don't have the unit with me, as I've already taken it to get it fixed since Sony wouldn't help. Model number, I believe, is CECHA01. It uses a wireless connection and all mandatory updates had been applied up until now. After 4.25, my PS3 would not read any type of disc.

 

Now I'm curious if Sony is going to offer to have these units repaired at no cost to the consumer. They should, in my opinion.

My Slim PS3 is working as good as ever after the 4.25 update and I am loving the updated cloud storage as well.

I just was required to update in order to use Amazon Instant Video.  THe update looked like others, but when it rebooted it came up briefly , but never got to the main screen.  Then it shut off with a blinking red light. 

 

I have a PS3 40 gig that I upgraded to 320 hard drive.  It was on the last forced upgrade..... not sure if that was 4.21 .

 

What do I tell support when I call?  I just had to have my box replaced less than 2 months ago because of the YLOD.

 

I did the update over WIFI.

So far with my 120GB PS3, there aren't any problems.

I finally got it to come up for a couple of minutes by canceling out of the system check.

Then it pretty much locks up and goes to the YLOD.

 

Will a manual upgrade via USB key fix this?

I have a 320gb slim model and ever since the update my PS3 won't even read my games.  It plays my CD's, DVD's, let's me on the internet & let's me sign in but IT DOESN'T EVEN READ MY GAMES!  What's going on?  Did the update break my PS3?
