Hope all of y'all with bricked systems get this resolved as soon as possible.Yeah wow, this thing apparently is more crazy than I thought. Station-General/PS3-system-software-update-4-45/td-p/40712015/page/2I have seen other people on my twitter list successfully update though. =\Yeah wow, this thing apparently is more crazy than I thought.

Just wanted to throw out a not so ominous result from updating.But even when you turn on the controller when it's not near a PS3 it at least has the blinking red lights. https://twitter.com/Play Station/status/347141681042309120I just came across that too!I tried hard resetting the system and it says I have 4.45 I believe. My controllers aren't synced anymore, the thing just boots up (doesn't show that safety disclaimer anymore) and sits there like a screensaver. I would absolutely have gone ahead with that update tonight if I hadn't seen this, that's a huge bummer.Yeah wow, this thing apparently is more crazy than I thought. I think it has to do with incompatibility between the HDD and firmware. I was playing TLOU when just suddenly my ps3 froze. not even my controller would work, wirelessly or with the wire. im now waiting for the official ps3 website to update with the downloadable 4.45Man, that sucks. Station-General/PS3-system-software-update-4-45/td-p/40712015/page/2I have seen other people on my twitter list successfully update though. i restarted the system and I got a error log-in message. I just happen to not be playing any PS3 games right now, or else I'd likely have installed it by now.

I've searched and found no info on there being an update and I've been playing online for the past week (Last of Us). All I could find was someone suggesting to take out the HDD and replace it with another one (don't have an extra HDD laying around). Also, if I try to turn it off it just makes a double beep noise and won't shut off. Turn it back on and its just back at the wave with nothing else on the screen.I updated it and now it sits at the wave screen and is just completely blank. Anyone else have this issue or, hell, even have to update tonight?Um I just signed into PSN a few hours ago to play a few matches of Tekken and it never prompted me for an update to sign into PSN. Not too concerned about that, just hoping there was some reason so I could get it back up and running. Well did find this so apparently there is an update?This is the most exciting thing that I have done today. Looks like I should probably turn off automatic updates before I go to bed.

Is this only affecting those with modified hard drives or has it happened to someone with a stock drive?

My slim still has the same hard drive it came with so would I be fine?



Abuse situations must be lived in and experienced before their internal logic makes any sense. Such people internalized a particular relationship dynamic, namely the complementary roles of "abuser" and "victim".… continue reading »

Dial-up modems, tiny bandwidth and small (and expensive) hard drives made it a tough place to take a hold, and yet some of these sites did prosper. Almost every site in the 1990s used some form of that as their background, and since their real estate was limited, they had to create patterns out of 64X64 pixel designs — sometimes smaller. The patterns are back, of course, but the animation? Now maybe the worst part is how tiny it is on the screen. There's no way that you could get by with an all-text site today, particularly if those were the fonts of choice. But this was a bad idea back in 1997, and frankly, anything that reminds me that dot matrix printers were a thing makes me want to wash my eyes out with steel wool and whatever acid they used to make the Joker.… continue reading »
