As promised, Sony has rolled out a firmware update designed to fix the 4.45 patch that bricked some consoles.
Playstation users last week downloaded and installed the 4.45 update, which was designed to let users turn trophy notifications on or off. According to the PS3 forum, users found that after they rebooted, the installation left their consoles "bricked," or frozen, locked, and unplayable.
Sony apologized to its users, pulled the update offline, and promised an investigation.
The new firmware update 4.46 promises to fix the issue. Sony issued detailed instructions
Wednesday on how to download and install the update and restore your console's functionality.
