Now available here at breakneck speeds for anyone (I expect everyones) who is struggling using the PS3 to update.

http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/support/system-software/detail/item370917/Update-features-%28ver-3-61%29/

Well it was breakneck when I started the d/l and began this post, slowing down a bit now.
#12
Crap, shoulda waited until my d/l was done before posting that. :P
#13
FAIL! ;)
#14
Going at 1300 kB/s here, thanks for the link and headsup, "mywife," I always try to download and update the firmware via storage media (usb) rather than directly via PS3.

Happy (soon online) gaming,
Scar
#15
Its still downloading, albeit a bit slower.
#16
turned my laptop off and started d/l update again and so far so good, just hit 50% jags as I write it just went off.
#17
Thanks MYWIFE now i would edit the post until mines downloaded :)
#18
spammed..to give us few a chance :P

















jk.
#19
lol.... my download died at about 75%.

Ive got a bad feeling about this... and of Sonys servers hosting the firmware.
#20
Even if you get the update, you still wont be able to play online since they havent turned it back on yet.

Edit: Spoke to soon. Partial service resumed.

Can someone please help me, cant figure what im doing wrong.

Created a folder names PS3 then within this folder created a folder named UPDATE. Put the latest firmware update into the UPDATE folder and saved to all 4 different usb sticks and memory devices.

All are recognised within the PS3 but it wont find any compatible updates via usb storage.

Driving me mad, what am i doing wrong???

Have you tried replacing the user?

Should be in all caps.

i.e. Z:\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP

Z being your flash card.

Yeh mine jumped suddenly too, but now all installed OK.

Guess EU area has not switched on yet, so you're not missing anything.

I have done it in the past fine.

Just wont find this update... for some strange reason.
#33
Use the checksum checker I posted above and see if it matches the code I posted.

Its quite likely your download from Sony, stopped without fully completing. Resulting in a partial download to the naked eye.

Check the size in properties, it should be:

Size: 176 MB (185,550,328 bytes)
Size on disk: 176 MB (185,552,896 bytes)

If you struggle to update from USB try a different USB drive. My PS3 didn't like my 8gb one yet was fine from a 2gb one I had laying around.

Downloading thro the ps3 now.

Ps3 wont take ANY of my usb devices. A 8gb a 16gb a 256mb and a sony mem stick 4gb in a sony mem card reader. Tried them all. Worked about a year ago.


Also tried the ps3 reset method.. ie... Turn ps3 off then Press and hold the power button till you hear a beep. Let it turn off. Press and hold the power button again till you hear a beep then pause then beep beep. Scrolled to option 6 to software update via storage device. STILL wont recognise them.
#38
Updating through PS3 internet update should be quick now anyway, their website is now also dishing out the firmware at full throttle.
banned#39
Grabbing it now.

2 PS3s to update and I'm guessing the speed will be pish in the morning.
#40
Hosted it again here for anyone that may want it and has troubles or if servers die.
