Ps3 crashed while updating
Every project on Git Hub comes with a version-controlled wiki to give your documentation the high level of care it deserves.It’s easy to create well-maintained, Markdown or rich text documentation alongside your code.You can create an sd image of your current sd card with win32diskimager (if you're on windows) Note: images created this way can only be written to a micro SD card of the EXACT same size or bigger.As an example you may not be able to write an image of a 64GB micro SD onto another 64GB card. But if you do plan on using ur PS3 to play PS2 games and will need the extra slots, GET IT. To be honest I still have not bought a PS3 game just yet I have been playing PS2 games mostly.If the problems are true and you decide to get it than don't update it and just wait for the next update, that could be the best solution.
I dont even know if I'll be able to sleep with all that anxious I'm having now. Yes the 60gb's have more features BUT more and more are getting this freekin YLOD. if backwards comp is what your looking for just use your ps2, if the card inserts are what your looking for... PS I have a 60gb that has the YLOD and it is like having a girlfriend you love and everythings going well then the **** just dumps you without telling you why... Also is ther any know problem using 2.42 version in PS3 60gb? BY now as I could read on the thread you posted, its not all 60gb that happens to crash on the update, according to a message telling that 2 friends were updating at the same time and one crashed while the other kept playing with no damage.
My only advice is buy the ps3, and do not update it till the next firmware comes out. Sony is not claiming responsibility for the problem as of right now.
Mind you DVD and CDs still work perfect, its just the blu-ray discs that are giving trouble. Go and buy it, then wait till the next firmware comes out.
The only reason Sony stopped making them is because it cost them a lot of money to make them, but they are still the best ones.
You should get the 60GB while you still have the chance!! The rumour that you have been hearing is that the 2.53 firmware update is making the older models stop reading blu-ray discs.
That's because actual real usable space may vary by manufacturer and in some cases even with the same manufacturer. if you don't want to create a sd image you can just back up your bios, roms, and configuration files from the samba shares You can use Rpi-clone, a shell script that runs directly on your Raspberry Pi.
