Happy gaming,
Scar

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

uk.playstation.com/ps3…29/

Well it was breakneck when I started the d/l and began this post, slowing down a bit now.

Crap, shoulda waited until my d/l was done before posting that. :P

FAIL!

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

Its still downloading, albeit a bit slower.

Original Poster

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.

Thanks MYWIFE now i would edit the post until mines downloaded

spammed..to give us few a chance :P

















jk.

lol.... my download died at about 75%.

Ive got a bad feeling about this... and of Sonys servers hosting the firmware.

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.

Same problem thats stopping me from updating, but try on your ps3 as mine has just shot up from 50% to 100% in like 10 seconds

Installed now.

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.

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)

Your right, EU is 2nd in line for switch on, Half the bloody americans are online as i type,

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.

Updating through PS3 internet update should be quick now anyway, their website is now also dishing out the firmware at full throttle.

Banned

Grabbing it now.

2 PS3s to update and I'm guessing the speed will be pish in the morning.

Hosted it again here for anyone that may want it and has troubles or if servers die.
