This just in from Sony, I received an email from them. i had wrote to them in regards to my PS 3 going down after the 3.0 update.  I was informed by Sony that," Typically, when downloading the update one’s Internet Connection can become unstable-especially for those who use a wireless connection-which results in the loss of data; consequently, the data for the PLAYSTATION®3 System Software Update becomes corrupt during the download process, thereby affecting the PLAYSTATION®3 system in a negative manner."To overcome this issue, you will need to re-upload the PLAYSTATION®3 System Software Update on to your PLAYSTATION®3 system using a USB Mass Storage Device such as a USB flash drive so that you can overwrite the corrupted data.

Has any one else ever seen this? If this true why do they give you the option ....  i have done some research on problems witht he new updates and have found that alot of 60 gig PS 3 went down after the new update and other models. I was more concerned with the 60 gig backward compatable since that is what I have.  Any one else have these issues or am i the only one that suffered from this ...

Sounds like a BS answer.  There is no way they do a firmware load without checking some type of hash/crc/ecc on the download.  In fact I would be shocked if they were using some type of data transport that didn't guarantee end to end data protection.  I would say memory corruption or hard disk corruption after download would be a much bigger concern.

I totally agree. If Sony isn't using ANY sort of hash/crc/ecc checking on something as absolutely vital as a BIOS update...then they're dumber than I give them any sort of credit for. There's no way they're that stupid.

Seeing as how it first downloads the update and then 'validates' the update before installing it, it sure seems like something of that nature is going on.

okay, i see what you're saying, & stand corrected (i'd always assumed there were checks going on during transfer, which would indeed make this seem bogus)...
