Anyway where did you hear that corrupt downloads are the cause of these firmware issues?
There doesn't seem to be an edit button in this section so I suppose I have no choice but to post again:
As I thought trying to update with a USB stick that is NTFS format didn't work. It has to be FAT32. NTFS is proprietary and I guess Sony would rather choke and die than pay Microsoft for the rights to use it. Either that or Microsoft wouldn't sell Sony the rights to use it. I don't know, but whatever the case I figured I may as well throw that out there for anyone using an NTFS USB stick, but keep in mind formatting it to FAT32 won't allow you to put on files larger than 4GB.
Edit again - It seems it automatically merges the posts, sorry for being a noob.
