Hi all,

Here is the latest on this issue:

We have identified the issue related to the PlayStation 3 software update (version 4.45) that impacted a small number of PS3 systems earlier this week. A new PS3 system software update is planned to be released on June 27 that resolves the issue. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience.

If there is any further updates between now and 6/27, we will drop them here.

We will also update on 6/27 when it is available, and steps on how to implement the solution.

Thank you
- morgan haro / mochuuu, SCEA PSN Community Management Team, @morganharo

System Software Update] PS3 v.4.45 - SCEA Update [ Edited ]

Hey everyone,

We are aware of reports that the recent PlayStation 3 system software update (version 4.45) has caused the XMB to not display on a small number of PS3 systems. We have temporarily taken 4.45 offline and are investigating the cause of the problem. We will announce when the system update is available for download as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

When we have updates, I'll add them to this thread. In the meantime, you can go to this open community thread to add your feedback:

Q&A:
=====================================================
Q1. I updated my PS3 to version 4.45, and now the XMB is not being displayed and I cannot play anything on my system. Why?
We are currently conducting investigations to determine the cause of this problem. We will announce further information, including additional updates, when ready.

Q2. Version 4.45 has been taken off line, but if users have already updated to the new version and they are experiencing problems, what can they do?
We kindly ask PS3 users to wait for further details. We will announce when ready.

Q3. Were you not able to predict that such an issue may occur? Do you perform appropriate verification tests before releasing updates?
SCE constantly performs appropriate verifications tests for system software updates, and strives to improve and offer quality service.
We are currently conducting investigations to determine the cause of this problem. We will announce further information, including additional updates, when ready.

Q4. How many users were affected by this update?
We are currently confirming the number.

Q5. I read in the web that the PS3 system with 500GB HDD were affected. Is this true?
We are currently conducting investigations to determine the cause of this problem.

Q6. Have you already found a solution to this problem?
We kindly ask PS3 users to wait for further details. We will announce when ready.

Q7. How are the customer service teams responding to consumer inquiries right now?
We kindly ask PS3 users to wait for further details. We will announce when ready.
=====================================================


--------------------
Update: Sony has rolled back to FW 4.41.

--

Edit: People are reporting problems booting up the PS3 after the update
http://community.us.playstation.com/.../td-p/40712247

If your PS3 is bricked, report your PS3 Model and HDD size
DO NOT UPDATE TO 4.45, PEOPLE ARE GETTING BRICKED PS3S

So far, it sounds like people with 1TB HDDs or a large hard drive (greater than 500 GB) are being affected

* Yes

Not that they ever bothered me, but if you can turn off trophy notifications, that would make a few people happy.

Hopefully it fixes the problem of the system getting locked into "please wait" when adding two things to background downloads.

Wait longer before you choose to install the patch.

When the prompt comes up, oddly enough, the games still run in the background, so a lot of processes are still running.

My PS3 locks up sometimes when I start downloading something off the store. Hopefully this fixes it.

256 MB RAM and lots of big images do not go together well.
