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

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:

We are currently conducting investigations to determine the cause of this problem. We will announce further information, including additional updates, 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...rt/Problem-after-update-to-4-45/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

We should put out more data like:

Problem with FW 4.45? (choose one):
* Yes
* No

HDD (choose one):
* Custom (please state GB)
* Factory (please state GB)

PS3 type (choose one):
* Fat with backward compatible
* Fat without backward compatible
* Slim 1
* Slim 2

PS3 Region (choose one):
* US
* UK
* AUS
* JPN
* Other (state)?

My PS3 did just reboot twice trying to update The Last of Us to 1.01 for some reason. So yay updates.

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

Hopefully there's a way to make my trophy notifications even bigger. Or be able to send my notifications to everyone on my friends list in real time.
