    [UnAnswered] PS3 System Update using Safe Mode?


    When using PlayStation 3's System Update within the Safe Mode menu, are you able to re-install the same firmware the system is already running? For example, a PS3 has firmware 3.15 installed and it becomes corrupt. If I put firmware 3.15 a USB drive and select System Update while in Safe Mode will I be able to reinstall a fresh version of the 3.15 firmware?

    In Theory Yes. But mostly the PS3 doesn't get corrupt and second if the PS3 really breaks the menu won't save you sorry

    PS: to be safe QA Flag before an update

    Thanks for the reply.

    What do you mean by "QA Flag before an update"?

    Yes you can reinstall same firmware from XMB or Recovery

    If you update to 3.41 or 3.55 CFW and wish to go higher than that on CFW, then run Toggle_qa first.

    If you are having issues with the firmware, then you should run option 3 in Recovery and see if it helps.

    Yes you can definitely put your current firmware you are running on a flash drive and re-install it. Same thing happened to me before and that's what I did.
