Re: Problem after update to 4.45

Jun 21, 2013

They would have to write a program that "rolledback" or "uninstalls" the 4.45 firmware.

 

Patching with 4.41 renamed to 4.46 wouldn't overwrite the broken code.

 

So we have to wait for a new patch, or a program that rollsback firmware.

Last time I checked Sony does not want a program that can rollback drivers in our hands.

 

But compairing the two updates and finding the code that was broken shouldn't be his hard, and they should beable to say (facepalm) "we messed up, file was corrupt or messed up, our bad give us 48 hours to fix it"

 

Since there has been no such stuff said, I'm assuming the worse.
I'm guessing their download servers got hacked...

They most likey are looking at the hacked code trying to figure out what, how, when, and who hacked them.

I don't believe that, because I put a old 120GB HDD I got from a friend  after 4.45 bricked my 1TB HDD and updated the 120GB with 4.45 and my PS3 is working again.

For now Sony have removed the update from the website and are investigating it. Those who have had the update will have to wait and see if Sony give away something or release a patch for locked consoles.

Has anyone tried to reformat there ps3 hdd drive in a pc as it should wipe out the old 4.45 update and any other data in there when placed back in the ps3 it should recognise it as a new drive and you should be able update it using a earlier update file

The update isn't stored on the hdd, though, it's in the PS3's internal flash memory.

Ok, so far we know this...

 

Reflashing the firmware with USB 4.45 -  DOES NOT WORK

Reflashing the firmware with USB 4.41 - IS NOT AN OPTION (System won't let you)

Sony Updating the firmware name of 4.41 to 4.46 - WILL NOT FIX A THING

If you are at the scrolling sparkling ribbon screen - SHUT DOWN YOUR SYSTEM AND DON'T TOUCH TILL IT IS FIXED

Has anyone unbrinked a system by;

  1. Boot into safe mode.
  2. Connect a wired controller.
  3. Connect USB thumb drive with 4.41 firmware on it.
  4. Select "6. Update Firmware".
  5. Install/roll back to the currently available 4.41 firmware?

Nevermind, I just saw earlier post that this will not work.
