PS3 Firmware Update

Right one of the things I have to do with the PS3 rebuild is check them out with a known working hard drive.

So, with a 2.5" SATA hard drive ready - clean - here's the steps I'm keeping to...

1. Format HDD as FAT32.
2. Create a folder called "PS3" on it.
3. Create a sub folder called "PS3/UPDATE".
4. Download the latest firmware from
5. Place this extracted firmware into the "PS3/UPDATE" folder we've got.
6. Insert the HDD into an external USB caddy.
7. Plug this into PS3 and power through...
8. Place the HDD from the caddy into the PS3 itself.

And it anything goes wrong I gotta go back into the Recovery Menu...

On the reassembly front I'm still waiting for the Artic Silver paste to turn up.
