Just found this. As I said I'm not sure how accurate these details are so I advise not risking it.

Thanks Ryder15 for finding this;

Please don't say that i've already downloaded it and installed it successfully what is bricking please explain?

Its simple bro. Turn on your system and if it works then you're fine and you won't have to worry what bricking is. But this is what bricking is, I'm not great with the technology behind it but I know that it makes your console useless upon startup and you get a black screen or something and you can't do anything with your console. The reason its called bricking is because it makes your console as useful as a brick.

Thanks to Almighty I am safe smile.gif thanks for updating Mikey

No worries brother. I mean we wouldn't want Aiden Pearce being late to his own party in the city of Chicago that relies so much on him and his creative technological knowledge on November the 21st..

No worries at all man, good gaming.

To anyone saying I'm breaking the rules if I save someone $400 I'm more then happy to break the rules this once, this place has the most activity hence it'll reach the most people and prevent the most damage.

 

Why aren't there more people like you? cookie.gifcookie.gif

Fair play op

So much retardedness in the v forums, well done for having respect and sharing

 

Sony; wtf

I'm an xbox360guy but plan to migrate to ps4.

Seeing this, however, makes me wonder

 

How the hell did they f*ck it up?

What I want to know is how they'll fix it. Replace bricked consoles? Are all game saves gone? Will a new update unbrick them or does it not load at all?

 

I'm surprised and worried - I I buy a ps4, and this sh*t happens, gamings dead...

 

Mind you I survived two RRODs...

I think it will be fixable via the PS3's safe mode which should still work even if bricked. Option 6 is System Update so when Sony releases a fix, you will be able to fix your PS3 with a USB pen in safemode.

Besides this event I think there's only being one other major bricking event in the PS3's history, which was in 2009 I believe. However you're right, none of this is really acceptable whatsoever.

 

No worries, people deserve it.

What does this have to do with GTA V?

Please read the actual post before commenting.

I did, and it has nothing to do with GTA V.

You don't want to warn other people about how they can fck up there ps3? Just this one topic to warn people should be removed?

 

So you want to read yet again another thread about 'what you're going to do the first time in V'/ if CJ will be back/will there be more than one city/ "OMG, new ss leaked!!", etc etc........

 

You think an old leaked and fake screenshot is more important than a little warning to prevent people from fcking up there ps3 and saving them some/ a lot of trouble?

Ok.....

do you think sony would allow that?

 

they would do something about it either recalkl them if it's that bad or release a new update

 

and yeah i honestly don't see why you would willingly post here when theres so many other threads for it that people see aswell?

 

but thats just an opinion

Not V related. We have other, more relevant subforums too remember. smile.gif

 

EDIT: Been asked to elaborate. The firmware has, to my knowledge, been pulled now so no-one should be in danger of this happening to them if it hasn't already. If it has happened already, you'll be better off discussing resolutions in the linked forum (above), particularly in the Official PS3 topic. Regardless, this isn't V related, and while I can appreciated why it was posted here - to warn others with maximum visibility - there is little reason to keep this warning visible now that the firmware isn't available any more.
