Question about 2.50

18 replies 4 views Edited Oct 15, 2008

My internet connection has been kinda wierd lately and randomly dropping connection. Therefore, I don't feel safe downloading a firmware when I could possibly lose connection in the middle of it. Would it screw my ps3 up if this happened?

 

Also, does anyone have an eta for the update via computer dl?

you should be fine since it doesnt delete old firmware and then download the new.  it does a complete download, and then installs.  if the dl is corrupt it shouldnt procede.

Download the Firmware from your computer and transfer it the PS3 using a USB storage.

It issafe because it downloads first then checks for all the data and then installs its not like it downloads and installs at the same time.
