PS3 Firmware - downloading it manually

Post  toprharley on Wed Sep 02, 2009 1:48 pm

In case anyone wants to manually download the latest PS3 firmware update before it is available on the Playstation website i.e. so they can stick it on a flash drive, open up this text file URL -

http://fau01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/list/au/ps3-updatelist.txt

The page displayed is a text file.
Code:
# AU/NZ
Dest=89;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=3.0000-;
Dest=89;ImageVersion=00008751;SystemSoftwareVersion=3.0000;CDN=http://dau01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/au/2009_0901_c049de7a6a4b03d53e7f9fde04e0fc08/PS3UPDAT.PUP;CDN_Timeout=30;

Within the text file there is a download URL:
http://dau01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/au/2009_0901_c049de7a6a4b03d53e7f9fde04e0fc08/PS3UPDAT.PUP

Copy and paste this into your address bar and the download will start. It's 150-odd MB.

NB: the above download URL is for firmware 3.00 and will change with future firmware releases.
You must use the text file to find the current/latest download URL.


This is legit - the text file displayed contains the URL for the latest update as used by the PS3 itself.
I have used it several times previously.

CLARIFICATION:
The text file URL is constant, but the contents of the text file (i.e. the update URL) varies with the latest release.
If you note, the update URL contains the date of the release, so you can use this as a double-check.

dau01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/au/2009_0901_c049de7a6a4b03d53e7f9fde04e0fc08/PS3UPDAT.PUP

Also, the current version is there: SystemSoftwareVersion=3.0000

INSTALLATION:
Once you have downloaded PS3UPDAT.PUP, copy it to a flash drive in the path \\PS3\UPDATE\

Plug the flash drive into your PS3's USB port, go into your PS3 XMB and go to System Update and select the local install option.

Probably because you already have a file name psupdat.pup - one of the previous updates and so it numbered it Wink

I say 'i think' coz there is another link that says patch.

Okay so from what I gather this is a 167mb update that is currently useless?
The only addition this seems to have is the new recommendation feature which isn't live yet.

Goddamn it Sony.

Took about 30 seconds to do on the PS3. It seemed very small.

Okay, safe to say that either Tom has posted the wrong link or the manual file download is a different file from the automatic.

ie, using the automatic method the playstation takes into account your last update and only downloads the needed files instead of including the lot.

Yeah... There is another link for a patch which is only 35mb or something.

Topr used the link I posted and it worked fine.

.41 indicates it isn't a full update.

@Brad - typical that there are no noticeable differences. Maybe something to do with the problems Luke had, could have been dodgy firmware?

Like I said, there is a patch link as well. I can post it but probably no point if it took Luke 30seconds.

It may download necessary files like you said

Every update is there for a reason, whether it being a change to the firmware in prep for a future big update. Who knows?

Who really cares anyway? The updates never take long.

They used to take me over an hour and a half through the ps3 so yeah, I cared.

Yet to try an update through the new net, possibly won't be a problem anymore.

Still like to keep this link updated for people with slower Internet.

I'm referring to the many people that complain about the updates. The PSN is so much better now than what it was at launch date, and that is because of updates.

Nearly everyone in BSK complains when a new update is out, and they all have amazing internet speeds. Complaining for no reason.

two things i noticed as far as menu changes - after you've updated to 3.41, if you go to the "Update via storage device" with the same firmware on your memory stick, then it offers you to reinstall - not sure if this is due to dodgy/failed firmware updates in the past??? Previously if you had 3.xx installed, it would only tell you that it was already installled...

Also, there is an option under "system" to enable auto-updates. It's funny coz I thought this was one of the special things the "plus" gave you.... pig
