Apparently there's a ton of reports that the newest PS3 update that was released today I believe, 4.45, has been bricking peoples consoles. Don't update.
Source: http://community.us.playstation.com...rt/Problem-after-update-to-4-45/td-p/40712247When I start up the PS3 Slim today, it reported that it required to update to 4.45 (the version that allows you to disable trophy notification during game play). After the download and installation, the system reboot.
But after it display the PS3 logo, it went to the second screen (the flowing ribbon). It suppose to display XB next. but it never goes there. Just the flowing ribbon.
I can not even shutdown the system by press the power button. (It bleeps, but the system didn't shut down.) So I tried unplug the power cord, and plugin again. Still same problem.
Is there anyone from SONY here? Could someone help me to revert to the system before 4.45?
