Just for the record i updated mine to 3.42 and have had absolutely no problems with any games (yet)
Did you watch my YouTube video? It's not heresy when there is video evidence. A console that refuses to boot after an attempted firmware install is not a hardware failure.

Any word on when a repack of 3.42 or a 3.43 is coming out? I've seen first-hand how mutiple (4) Madden 11 discs don't load in 3.42 but function normally in 3.41.
thats what my ps3 has been doing, i have a 120GB slim and have FW 3.4.1 on there with PSgroove.
I went to change my HDD the other day from the 120GB to a new 500GB HDD, installed the new HDD and inserted my USB drive which has FW3.4.1 the exact same one my 120GB was using and now i just get a definete loop.
please press PS to reset, or start and select to load FW.
so i press select and start, so it checks, finds, prepares, once it gets to 100% the system resets and im back at square one.
I tried that 6 times the other day, than got frustrated, removed the 500 and inserted the 120GB and same thing please press PS to reset or start and select to load FW.
So i pressed the PS, reset the system and now its back to normal but dont dare go back to the 500GB just incase it stuffs up my 120GB.
I rang sony today and the stingy selfish tight so and sos want 250 AUD to have a look at it!
Is there any way i can fix this?
Do you have the correct 3.41 FW the one with checksum: e07d2b84c9e9691c261b73e5f1aada20
The first version of 3.41 had the issue you're describing when you changed the hdd's so they silently released a second version of 3.41 with this issue fixed.
Would be nice if someone had a copy of the GOOD 3.41 and stored it online in a file share account, lots of people seem to be looking for it and this case above appears to be the issue of the dodgy 3.41, however I'm assuming and you know what they say.

now im using the same FW but am having problems with it, just seems weird it works, works, works, and suddenly now it does not.
ill try the "good one" linked below and see how it goes.
just a quick question if i install a FW when using a HDD will it be on every HDD i use?
say i use a 120GB and install 3.4.2 than take that out and install a 500GB with 3.4.1 will that work, and will i still be able to use PSGroove on the 500GB drive?
only reason i ask is because i need to get onto PSN so i can download the move patch for heavy rain and resi 5, HR one is out next week, RE5 one is out now.
and from research i have done it looks like there is no way to download game patches without being signed into PSN, even installing .PKG files i hear wont work is that true?
is there any way i can download game patches without being signed into PSN, or a way to get into PSN while using 3.4.1?
No you will get 3.41 as those console packages have already been produced and shipped, they will not have time to put them on to 3.42 and then get out to sellers on time.
