2.40 Firmware Update Pulled. |

2.4 sounds like an awesome update with most of the major features that everyone has been asking for. Unfortunately there are reports of problems during the installation process, so Sony has pulled the update for now.

Hopefully this will be sorted out quickly.


  • I had no problems when downloading the 2.40 firmware yesterday. With the exception that it was really REALLY slow.

    Did you guys also notice that we now (finally) have the clock displayed in the upper right corner? Just like the psp 🙂

    Mine downloaded in under 7 minutes! ;-P I and my friends have had no problems with it??? Or other updates. Hope SONY know there are people out there trying to bring down the PlayStation brand??? i.e check!!! :-/
    I’ll leave it at that! ;D

    Pity the controller power level overwrites the clock when it shows, but it’s a good start. The shop is a LOT faster too, and it looks like it pre-loads the front page before/when you log on – not that there’s anything much worth getting.

    My system update failed once (‘an error occured – some big hex number), but that’s not unusual, and overall it was faster than any of the previous times. Startdust also seemed to crash/reboot the system when it first tried to update, but it was ok the second time.

    But one downside … i suppose now i’ll have to update again in a day or so.

    I got 2 or 3 crashes trying to update SSHD but thats it. After it finally updated, everything worked fine. hell I have 6 or 7 trophies already.

  • No Crashes here, and the funny thing is, NO DRM!

    I can Play Warhawk with all my PSN accounts not only the one I bought it with from the shop.

    I think this is also the main reason why the firmware is pulled..

    It’s weird hearing about some people out there having problems with “updates”. I for one, have not had one single problem with my system ever ! with anything ! and either have any of my friends. Update 2.40 works just fine for me, and also installed with no problem (it even downloaded quickly).
    p.s. how was the firmware pulled ?? I still have it….can anybody explain please ?

  • Pc

    Maybe it was just pulled so that no new users could download and install it ?

  • Trigga_Tybalt

    2.40 worked fine for me. only problem being slight slowdown when using XMB during a game but then that’s to be expected. also shame that the controller battery icon covers up the clock.
    does anyone know if 2.40 users will be forced to downgrade or do we get to keep it?

  • Trieloth

    Iam sure gald it works for everyone but I would like to get the 2.40 update at some point. Its pissing me off alot. I didnt realize I had to be a crack head and download it right away. Some of use do have jobs.

  • No issues here. Played several SSHD games, everything is fine.

  • Hi Trieloth,

    You can download it from some sites please use google or go to You can then use a usb-stick to update your console..

  • Darrin

    This will blow over shortly. I haven’t downloaded 2.4, but I *did* previously have my whole system die immediately after installing 2.0. I assume this is a similar type of issue.

  • Trieloth

    Humm Thanks for the heads up PaxPacis!!

  • Yeah, here too… Warhawk works on all accounts ^^

  • ehandlr

    Mine works like 6 trophies from SSHD already.

  • AbdulElah

    No problems here, I have unstable connection but I manged to update using my PC (flash memory) and it was really smooth!

    no problems at all…

    I notice that XMB access durring in game. is a bit slower.. right?
