The fault seemed to be related to machines whose hard drive had been replaced, but other problems reared their head even if your PS3 continued to work.
The frustration this caused gamers was made all the worse by the fact Sony announced they were going to keep everyone waiting until June 27 to issue a fix.
However, if 4.45 bricked your machine then the process of getting it working again is a little more involved.
First up, you’re going to need a USB flash drive with at least 168MB of free space on it.
I don't want a fanboy/bias one though, or at least not ones that claim everything that isn't a PS3 is crap, those ones just piss me off.
I subscribe to quite a few RSS feeds, but most don't seem to have many PS3 posts. For both, an RSS feed is not essential, but HUGELY preferred.
I can't get a PS3 online due to having dial up, so my best bet is downloading them on PC. Can I download them by PC, shove 'em on a USB stick and install them on the PC?
No doubt I could download them, as everything is on the internet somewhere.
Please note that however you cannot install older firmwares version, like for example you have a 3.50 console and you want to install 3.42 or 3.41 firmwares files.
It can only be done with downgrading which requires you to have a special USB device. Depending on your situation, you may need to install the PUP from the PS3 recovery menu.
