Default Re: Sony: Removing ps3 functionality to make you safer

Never used it but I am disappointed that they took it away. I liked knowing that if I wanted to, I could have another OS.

It's weird I feel the same way. I setup a proxy server to access PSN, but it seems like such a waste. I never used it once since I bought the PS3, I did set aside the 10GB of space when I upgraded the PS3 HD, I still didn't use it, but now that sony took it away, I don't want to upgrade and lose it. The yellow dog linux iso has been sitting on my HD for almost 2 years.

There's some reports that this update breaks PS3. I don't have a link atm but you can google it up. I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate. Mine works perfectly fine (which is good).

Yeah I heard that it has broken some original 60GB PS3 models (like mine). But there have always been reports of firmware updates breaking PS3s so it's always hard to say if it just was a coincidence or because something in the firmware was responsible.

I am continually amazed at how long ps3 updates take to install.

The update worked fine, I have a slim, so it didn't change much.
