I own a PS3 Test 40Gb and I have a quite strange problem... I can't do the internet firmware update, though the console acquires successfully an IP adress and I am able to surf the web through the web browser
When I am going into: Settings->System Update the "update via internet" option is in gray and not selectable
Furthermore, I tried to download the 3.21 firmware from Sony's site, put it in a USB key and try to update offline, the result: I can see that the system recognize that FM 3.21 is available on the USB key but it is also in gray.. if i try to press "X" on it a message appears saying that the data are damaged (I tried to dowloadi it another time but same thing)
Yes, I am quite confused Do you guys have some hints?
Basically the same applies to them as with all PS3 Debug Firmware updates... when they are leaked we add the files to the download section. Not long ago someone on the Forum mentioned he had 1.50 obtained through a source that didn't mind leaking the file, but no word on it being uploaded yet. If/when it is we will post it in the Site News though so you won't miss it.
If you mean THIS post, it wasn't actually last July but the one before that... but sadly, the source didn't want those leaked which is why (as I mentioned above) we have been waiting for another source who doesn't mind taking the risk in leaking them publicly.
Generally speaking, sources still working in the industry aren't willing to take the risk so it's often someone outside or who has access through a friend or the press who leaks such things... basically someone with less to lose, such as their career, being sued for breaching an NDA, etc.
