I'm back from a year away and I tried to update my PS3 80 gig to Version 3.41. The upgrade loaded but when it got to the info on ..loading this upgrade will PREVENT you from being able to use other operating systems like Linux the screen FROZE and my controller would not let me say YES or OK the X (enter) was not functional. I had to shut the darned thing off and reboot...but unfortunately it brought me to the VERY same screen.
Finally I turned off my internet, rebooted the system again and was able to choose internet disable which gave me control of my machine again?
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
Could the FACT that this PS3 has not had an upgrade since perhaps June or July of 2009 be a factor. In other words would I need to go through ALL those upgrades so that I can use 3.41?
Thanks....because this is a bit 'beyond' me at the moment. I thought I had fried the player for a while?
