PS3 wont update to 3.56 NEVER BEEN HACKED
PS3 wont update to 3.56 NEVER BEEN HACKED –
so my ps3 has never been hacked, and is asking me to update it to 3.56 or newer because it won't boot to anything besides recovery menu. when I give it 3.56 it says its corrupted 8002f225 and a couple other errors if I keep trying. I have tried both 3.56v1 and v2.
anyone know what to do?
Try a different thumb drive. Try 10 of them if you have to.
I've tried all of the ones that I have, and a quick google search shows that the official playstion forums are bombarded with this same error.
funny, i sold my first ps3 because sony bricked it with an update, and the next one i buy came already bricked by them, a year and a half later
Where did you get this PS3 from? Has it been possibly downgraded from 3.55? If so, the 3.41 update file that is used for that downgrade has been modified to report as 3.56. So, if this is all true, you'd need to downgrade to the 3.41 provided in the DGF.rar and then upgrade to an OFW. Now, if I'm wrong, then you'll be permanently stuck in service mode. So, be damn sure this is the case before doing anything.
Download this app on your PC and drag + drop the pup files onto it.
Once you get an MD5 code from it, compare it to the ones on this site..
Ps3OsRels - EurAsiaWiki
Otherwise, keep trying different USB keys and try formatting them to FAT32 in "My Computer" and then add the PUP files into the right folders.
USB:/PS3/UPDATE/UPDAT.PUP - Is exactly where your files should be (although you seem to have that part right).
Also, what Chesh said could be right, but don't rush into downgrading unless you know you're okay to.
i got it from a guy on craigslist, for my modded 360 =[
he said it "hasnt been turned on in a while and probably needs some updating"
i got it from him the day 3.56 came out...
so who knows, i might end up taking it to someone else on craigslist that can repair and jailbreak
i dont care if it gets stuck in service mode either, as long as it works
That's just it, if it gets stuck in service mode, there's no way to get it out and you can't run anything while in there. Sounds like you got scammed.
stuck in service mode allows you nothing might as well be turned off, as for not on in a while he was full of shit. It actually sounds like the HDD upgrade issue they were having w/ 3.56 (the reason for v2)CALL SONY

Hrm, if it's the HDD upgrade issue (is the HDD stock for the PS3?) what you'd need to do is pull the HDD from the PS3, format it on your computer, put it back in the PS3 and use the 3.56v2 firmware on a thumbdrive to install. Get 3.56v2 from the EurAsia link above.
no idea if it's stock, its a 40gb so im guessing it is. I have already tried formatting it in my computer and using v2.
