I tried all the ideas listed and nothing...system still shuts down every time. I bought the DLC from Gamestop and had to enter a code to download...don't know if that affects things. I even deleted the DLC and tried to play the game and download 1.06... and nothing. Anyone else still unable to download or am I the lone sad sack?
There's something you should know. If you stop downloading the game at all, you can no longer download the rest of the game, not even disconnecting the internet helped. Until they fix this crappy patch, I'm forever stuck at 82%, I hate whoever is behind all this, they must be completely evil right down to the core. I really hate Naughty Dog for refusing to acknowledge there's even a problem with their precious 1.06 patch. Never buying a game off the PSN ever again. Gamestop for life! I'll say this right now, this ranks up there with such despicable acts such as the Aliens: Colonial Marines scandal.
Great find Karrde712, this worked for me too!
Just adding more details since I'm actuall downloading the full game.
On step3, accept and let it download the patch once you see it reaching 100% pull ethernet plug out and let it install without connection, once that is done it will fail miserably downloading the actual game, plug the cable back in and proceed with step 5
Thanks Karride712... You should get a job in customer relations and show ND and PSN how it's done!
No thanks, I'm enjoying my career as an enterprise software architect far too much
Seem you have solved the problem for lots of people, and its an EXACT description of my problem, but the update is now 1.07 and your solution doesn't seem to work for me.
Also your instructions are not very clear.....
I see "O" to sign in and begin download, not "X" and a few other differences....
Same issue here, can't install at all. The timer is 3h 14m for a while, then it starts flickering all over, 21 hour, 15 hour, 21 minutes, 4 hours, 16 hours, and so on. Counter stays at 0.00% though.
Very annoying, this will be the last game I buy through psn, simply not worth the hassle.
