[Answered] Frequent PS3 crashing since 4.00 update help?
Hey guys, I'm new here
So when my PS3 was on version 3.xx, there was minimal freezing and seemingly no serious problems. I continually did every update available, just the average user.
It seems that after the 4.00 update, I have not been able to play many intensive games like Uncharted 3, MAG, Motorstorm: Apocolypse, etc. without it freezing up and, after a forced-reboot, "checking and restoring the filesystem". I understand that this automatic check and restore of the filesystem after any crash can be important in the case that a file was being used and got corrupted... but it is quite annoying.
So, I was wondering if there is a way to restore it back to, say, version 3.73. As for backing up data, I have an external USB HDD that I think I can use. As for restoring to 3.73, is there a file that I can put on a USB flash drive and restore to with no other problems (eg. connecting to PSN)?

I've had this problem for over a year with multiple PS3's with a few different games.
it's the power supply getting to hot, and the GPU is trying to pull more power and the power supply is basically not supplying what it should be, so the gpu locks up.
Happened with my PC before I upgraded my power supply, but you just need to keep your PS3 cool. maybe move it to a cooler spot in the room, don't keep it under the TV in a case, etc
forgot to mention that with every update, there are hidden things $ony adds to the background processes table. that or they just break the system little by little.
world domination? I think so.
