Some may recall Sony quietly reissued PS3 Firmware 3.41 to rectify issues for PlayStation 3 HDD upgraders, and today Examiner.com (linked above) reports the same remedy may be necessary in the recently released PS3 Firmware 3.56.

To quote: "According to users on [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] Forum, the 3.56 firmware prevents the newer PlayStation 3 models (with 16 MB flash) from being upgradeable to a new hard disk drive. The following models have been affected:

Original PlayStation 3 Model:

•CECHH
•CECHJ
•CECHK
•CECHL
•CECHM
•CECHP
•CECHQ

Slim PlayStation 3 Model:

• CECH-20..A
• CECH-20..B
• CECH-21..A
• CECH-21..B
• CECH-250.A
• CECH-250.B
• CECH-250.A
• CECH-250.B
• CECH-251.A
• CECH-251.B

Apparently this was an old bug that has appeared before in a previous firmware update that was eventually fixed. Hopefully, Sony can fix it again in a timely matter."

Sony must have lawyers on speed-dial! They sue people left and right for the hacks, LG suing them and there has been a case where someone sued (and won) over the OtherOS removal! Keep Sony in court for their BS.

"Some of you may have had your PS3 system bricked by update/virus 3.56 from Sony. So have hundreds of others. Read about it on the Sony forums here: [Register or Login to view links]

We are currently preparing a class action lawsuit against Sony. A petition will be available on that forum and Facebook shortly. Stay tuned."

Thanks for a reply, thought the thread died, haha. Now today I can suddenly upgrade firmware, or whatever, through the System Update, and I'm running on the OFW 3.56 pure OFW. Hmmm.... came up a few hours ago, I'll put in some HDDs and see. I'll reply back in half an hour.
