I have been out of town for work but I have Auto Updates through Plus turned on, should I expect my system to be bricked when I get home tonight?

 You'll be fine. The update isn't applied automatically...it's just downloaded until you allow it to be installed. Don't let it install and you'll be fine.

I expect absolutely nothing, but to play my games with no loss of save data come the 27th. That's all I want, hell, you count me in for a Ps+ sub now for the data cloud.

I understand your frustration, I have been here since tuesday night, I have posts within the first 5 pages. I have been sitting here waiting just like the thousands of other people. And it's flawed logic to think that  considering its a small possibility that can fix your ps3 via a smaller hdd or a fix that sony has assured us will fix this issue. Unfortunately for a lot  people, you included feel empty because of this, and are looking for any kind of half-assed solution probably doing more damage to their ps3's and hard drives. Meanwhile, I'm playing my vita right now... patiently waiting, not a care in the world for 6 more days.


in my case its not a big issue to try this because i am doing it on my original 80gb Hdd my 750 which is bricked is not being touched until sony puts out  the fix and i have it backed up to 250gb external so if i **bleep** up my 80 gb its nothing to reformat  it as everything on it is on the external as well so everyone who has a nother hard drive to test this on are not really risking anything so i dont see why its a bad idea to try 4.45 is already on my system regardless and if it doesnt work then it doesnt work

Just to add my 2 cents.. I have a slim 250g ps3 that I upgraded to 1TB and had it brick on me the night of the update.. I took a chance and replaced my old 250g hdd and it asked for the 4.45 update through usb. I applied the update and let it do its thing and my 250g hdd works fine and has all the items it had when I removed it in favor of the 1TB. will wait til the 27th and hopefully get my 1TB working again but atleast I can watch my blurays and maybe take a few hrs and get Last of Us and Saints Row 3 back..
