Where does the PS3 place game update files before installing?
I'm trying to play my retail copy of SSF4 on my Test unit just to goof around. I downloaded the 1.01 game update on np, but it won't install on 3.20 which is fine. I installed the blackbox ftp to see if I could grab the package off the ps3 and place it on a flash pen, so I can downgrade to 1.0 debug and just install it there. However, I cannot find the retail package and I'm assuming the directory isn't readable without a jailbreak?
I've tried all the possible directories listed and none have it and a lot don't allow me to read the directory.
you need to put the update on the flash drive as so " [root] -> PS3 -> UPDATE " and then put the ps3updat.pup in that folder. Choose system update from the system menu options and then choose flash drive.
and to answer your first question. When the PS3 downloads an update it stores the files in "app_home/PS3UPDATE/" which, you cant access.
