If anyone is wondering I have the 1st gen Slim 120GB model.
Because I'm a fucking mad-man I braved the waters and updated and can confirm I successfully did so. 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.
I tried to sign in and then got the "System Update" alert. But then when it was done installing.....i had a black screen for about 10 minutes before I got up and turned off the system. My latest system backup is probably a month old, though at least my saves would have been on PS .
I actually booted up my system last night to play some Demon's Souls and I got prompted for the update.
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 did get a bit worried though because Game FAQs is popping up with more and more instances of this. People on GAF and the Play Station forums all report similar phenomena.If you've got problems, don't reformat your drive just yet; some people on the PS forums tried and apparently it didn't fix anything. )edit: now I see that people who are having this problem are all playing TLo U. @demoskinos: @handlas: i was the guy that complained but i deleted the tweet.Hopefully Sony puts out an update for their botched update soon. I installed the firmware and it bricked my fucking system! I fixed it by forcing the system into recovery mode and formatting my entire HDD. This happened to me once before with a previous HDD. Finally got it to work and for whatever goddamn reason my Last of Us save didn't get uploaded to the cloud. I just created an account just so i can voice my experience as well. I then kept looking and on a ps3 forum found that if this happens data is lost but previous updates have made it so u can connect storage media that contains update data and your ps3 will resume working and you wont have loss of save data.Man, I'm getting lucky seeing these threads; read about The Last of Us autosave bug shortly before I was gonna start playing it on Friday, and I read this as I was installing the update. It would be a real bummer to lose my "Clear" saves in the Hyper Nep games. For some reason, a Go W: Ascension patch was sitting in my games list, waiting to install.Edit: I guess it was further along than I thought, the PS3 just switched itself off. Two things; I do not own that game and I do not have it installed on my system.Happily, the Bedrock edition is offered as a free upgrade to everyone who already owns the Xbox One Edition, and will similarly be free to Switch is still available on a ton of different platform, so when development ends for legacy consoles, you should still be able to jump to a different version fairly easily.We’ll have more details about Update Aquatic as they become available, so stay tuned.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.
