The web is filling up with reports from users who have found their Playstation 3 blocked after you upgrade the firmware 4.45 .
It seems that the unlucky users have experienced a brick the console after running the update of the operating system . Many have tried to boot the system after the upgrade, but without finding any positive result. Furthermore it has been attempted the recovery operation of the original file system but the maneuver has turned only in a loss of time.
Ironically the update 4.45 would ensure greater stability of the operating system, as well as add some notifications Achievements.
We are waiting for the official character of the situation by Sony. Meanwhile we recommend that you avoid updating your Playstation 3 , although some users have confirmed or network that you have already performed the procedure without encountering any problems.
The problem seems to occur only in the case where the user has replaced the original hard disk. Obviously it's a hypothesis, therefore renew our council not to upgrade until further notice.
