IMPORTANT: DO NOT UPDATE YOUR PS3 to 4.45!
« on: June 19, 2013, 10:22:24 AM »
The new firmware seems to "softbrick" (not a real brick though) any console as it gets stuck at the welcome screen.

A patch will be released and for those who already have 4.45 just download it and install it from Safe Mode.

DO NOT UPDATE.

EDIT: Seems like the 4.45 Firmware was pulled, thus 4.41 is the one that is up-to-date.

Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.

Yea Sony has acknowledged the problems and rolled back the Firmware update to the latest stable version which would be 4.41.

Hope they bring out an update soon though. 4.45 contains an update with witch you can disable the trophy notifications, something which I personally would like to disable ;)

Even then its still based on luck. There are also a whole bunch of people that have installed 4.45 without problems, probably just an specific setting where this patch is crashing.

p.s. Wonder when mircosoft will take this minor chance to start an Sony blackmail campaign :P

They're too busy with their own problems.
