PS3 Official Firmware 4.45 Released Then Pulled - Reports Suggest A Brick Fest!
Here comes another round of updates
to the PlayStation 3. The mandatory
update added trophy notification options and believe it or not "improved system stability." However this update has been pulled by Sony since mass reports came in of consoles bricking.
Users are reporting that once the update has done its thing and reboots, the console will hang while displaying the ribbon. Good news to those who have bricked is that you can still access the recovery menu, so at least that way one can install whatever patch Sony might release. Lets hope it's soon!
About OFW 4.45:
Many are suggesting that the update bricks those who have upgraded their hard drives, especially those with 1 TB HDD's. Anyone here who has experienced a brick due to this update willing to elaborate?
PS3 system software update 4.45 coming soon, Trophy notification options and improved system stability are on the way
