Article: Sony Silently Releases 3.56v2 - Upgraded Hard Drive Bug Fixed –
Oh, typical Sony. If that was your way to fight the hacking scene, then it sure did backfire, didn't it?
Lol, it's proably because they're so busy perfecting there master plan to ban all the JB consoles back in the underground layer.
Sony and their games...
If they think releasing multiple versions of 3.56 is actually HURTING those running CFW, they're sadly mistaken... Sure it may slow down the DEVs for a while as now anyone working on a 3.56 CFW will have to switch gears and start working on the new version of 3.56 (with whatever else they sneaked into this release like the ROOT KIT I've read about having been found in v3.56 which allows Sony to remotely execute code on your console). But in time, a new CFW will be released rest assured and I'm sure they'll slam the lid on this too.
For those on 3.55 and CFW none of these games really matter. They can play their DL'd or BU'd games, PSN games... and with the DNS fix (while it continues to work), even online for those who dare or don't care of the potential implications...
So yes Sony, we laugh at your feeble (yet corporately necessary) games while countless wide-open PS3's continue to operate un-impeded by your actions...
P.S. The source for my "ROOT KIT" information as mentioned above is from an entry on ps3-hacks.com. Whether it's true or not, can't say... just throwing it out there.
I'm not sure if this report is accurate. Or maybe the new firmware is only out in certain regions? I downloaded the current file from http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/ and it still causes the error on a new hard drive. Also the MD5 from the file I downloaded is 2a52196399a4b96ea568aafa65d1a27e.
I run a PS3 repair business and have a customer with a relatively new PS3 that needs a hard drive replacement (his drive was killed when the machine was dropped). Unfortunately I still receive the error code and "corrupt" message when attempting a hard drive replacement using a USB stick containing the update file downloaded today.
Can anyone else report success with an update file? Where did you download it from?
Any One now hot to restore Ps3 OWF 3.56 on CFW 3.55 ory any other
My Ps3 is Runing First 3.56 OFW today i am playng COD online
Restore OFW 3.55 to your PS3 using the recovery menu, then you can use the XMB system update option to get the most current Sony OFW if that's what you choose to do. (It is important that you go to 3.55 OFW before updating to 3.56) Keep in mind, that at this time, there's no going back to CFW if you decide to go to the most current Sony OFW.

yay, to bad it only fixes HALF the problem, it only works if you have the original HDD to install the 'new' 3.56 fw on first, many have already wiped the old HDD so still get 'data corrupted' error trying to use the 'new' 3.56 on their HDD
