To quote from PSGamer24 and CJPC HERE: "They fixed it and re-uploaded the firmware without telling anybody. The link is the same but the MD5 hash is different.

[CJ@localhost Download]$ md5sum PS3UPDAT-341*
00c835be718fc3d5f793e130a2b74217 PS3UPDAT-341-ORIGINAL.PUP
e07d2b84c9e9691c261b73e5f1aada20 PS3UPDAT-341-NEW.PUP


Furthermore , once unpacked the file dates for every dev_flash archive has changed to that of 7/29/2010 , vs the original of 7/21/2010 - as seen in the images below.

So, Sony did indeed update the firmware without informing anyone, probably a change in a single (or few) SPRX's. - Also, the new Auto Update feature in regards to PS3 Patches was not updated - so it was possible that it was not affected (or, that Sony did not fix it!)"

BTW, i recommend all people to get an infectus, a good way to downgrade.

Sorry pal, but no more. Only the actual version of the flash can be replaced/repaired by backup with infectus.

YOU sir should read a little better. Its NOT about a brick at all! The thing i am mentioning is something much sophisticater! We all know damn well that Sony is trying to get you to buy a new Slim. So every update a lot of Phat die.

The update was installed succesfully! And it run for like a day without any problems.

So you cannot talk about a brick here... The person below me was watching a movie, thus also no brick. Where in my comment did I say brick? The second line... I am talking in general about people complaining about their ps3 'breaking'. It seems like everyone complains about things that are probably a personal issue rather then sony's fault.

I am not specifically talking about the recent HDD upgrade problems, and yes I did read the article. But it seems like every site I go to constantly has these "Sony firmware ruined my life" articles.

This admittedly wasn't the best article to post my comment on. But I stand by what I said.

3.15 Forever! Sony's most stable and full-featured (no b/c) firmware ever created! And, tbh, i'm still hoping for a CFW or whatever.

BTW, i recommend all people to get an infectus, a good way to downgrade.

My sincerest condolences to those with problems. I feel for you! I don't agree however that $ony would intentionally put out FW to the world to break fat PS3's. People won't buy any PS3 if $ony is trying to get rid of fat PS3's.

Like always, there are problems with some PS3's and unfotunately some are costly to repair and in some cases replacement is the answer.

I tried to download 3.41 from our ZA site just to find that there is some sort of "glitch" preventing from doing so, but it seems like THAT was intentional so people don't download corrupt FW.

And again, (hating the part to come up for $ony) they have responded quickly to produce a FW fix.

I have learned yet again to wait before downloading and updating FW. My advice to all:

1. It is best to wait a couple of weeks before updating to see if there are any problems with FW.
2. Backup before updating.
3. Rather download on external media and install from same than to do it online directly with PS3.

Again, sorry to those who experience problems ....

To be honest, I don't even pay attention to the news of firmware breaking PS3's anymore. It seems like every time a firmware comes out someone's ps3 breaks and they get upset, so they complain and moan about it on the internet and someone picks it up as a story.

The fact is every firmware upgrade for every device has a chance to brick your system. Mainly because it's changing the actual structure of the operating system, which can end badly.

So as far as I'm concerned these articles are wasted space.
