PS3 Firmware Update Issue
ok. I have a demo ps3 at firmware version 3.60 and it will not let me update it to the latest one. I cannot downgrade it because I have no idea how to do it correctly. I have found guides on how to do the downgrading but, it must be done by soldering. It is also costly from what I have read online everywhere. I was thinking about sending it to Sony to fix it and get a different one back or should I just throw it out? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
You should be able to update it. If not, send it to me =D. I will cover the shipping cost.
You should not have any problems going from from 3.6 to 4.2. Here is SONY's page to the update 4.2. It details how to update. Also, you can GOOGLE the specific firmware and download it and install it off a flashdrive. But, be sure to have it formatted in the FAT32 format, otherwise the PS3 will not recognize it.
Best of Luck,
