Turn off ps3 updating
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. Station-General/PS3-system-software-update-4-45/td-p/40712015/page/2I have seen other people on my twitter list successfully update though. =\Yeah wow, this thing apparently is more crazy than I thought.

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.Anyone else got a firmware update tonight and have it mess up your PS3?I've searched and found no info on there being an update and I've been playing online for the past week (Last of Us). All I could find was someone suggesting to take out the HDD and replace it with another one (don't have an extra HDD laying around). Also, if I try to turn it off it just makes a double beep noise and won't shut off. Turn it back on and its just back at the wave with nothing else on the screen.That sucks though duder I hope you at the very least had save backups in the cloud or on a USB stick? I haven't had to update either, but it's been a few hours since I was on my ps3. I even just tried plugging my controller into the system and the controller won't even turn on then. Must not be mandatory though because I never got prompted to update.
Software updates can include, improvements, new settings or revisions, as well as security patches.This is the most exciting thing that I have done today. Looks like I should probably turn off automatic updates before I go to bed.Is this only affecting those with modified hard drives or has it happened to someone with a stock drive?In response to Microsoft turning their consoles into bricks when they're offline, Sony is turning theirs into bricks when they're ONLINE..."In all seriousness though, my heart breaks a little at the thought of all the time folks are going to have to take to get things back into shape. Just checked to make sure my PS3 hadn't already downloaded the update, then turned off the back switch to make sure it doesn't.Reminds me that I should probably update my cloud saves and make a fresh backup of the hard drive. HEY FATE, you know, I never have backed up any of my saves to the cloud.
