BAD Hard Drive or Bad firmware, 1 - Do a reset " google it" .. if it didn't help 2- re-install the firmware, if u r on 3.55 CFW, try to instal 3.55 OF nd then do ur jailbreak again, Don't update it to a higher one then 3.55. if you did, you will need a hardware flasher to jailbreak it again, i warned you .... but if it is already not jailbroken, nd was on +3.56 u can upgrade ..
You will need an extra 2.5" HDD. use a laptop HDD. So we all know with this error, it won't allow you to enter in the recovery menu because it would try to re-install the bad 2.8 update firmware again and again once it turned on. 1. So what I did was I swapped the laptop HDD into the PS3, it won't be able to read the HDD but it will allow you to enter the recovery menu now. (for those who do not know how to get into the recovery menu, here is the instruction http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?message .uid=39144801) 2. Once I'm in the recovery menu, I took out the laptop HDD and put back in the PS3 HDD. 3. I also downloaded the 3.01 firmware from the PS website and uploaded into my USB drive and put that in the PS3 slot. 4. At this point, you want to select "system update" and update to the 3.01 version.
For some reason, the first time doing this the system froze at 67% with a new error (but i didn't write down the code). So I had repeat step 1 and 2, but this time when I put back in the PS3 HDD I chose "restore file system" without having to do the system update again. Then it gave me another error at around 65% that said the disk is corrupted and tell me to press OK to format the disk. After it formatted, it automatically install the 3.01 version and the system is fixed.
I seem to have a very similar problem to yours on the 60GB as well. I am curently doing the total reformat but it takes a long time to do it and i have to go to work while it is reformating. So anyway if it works i will let you know. me e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
You will have to take a screwdriver to it, and open up the PS3, and remove the CD... once you do that make sure the console will stay on without the cd in the drive, do your update under systems menu then try ANOTHER game

well you have no choice but to turn it off...hopefullly when you reboot the machine it will attempt to reinstall the firmware..usually that is what the unit does. if it freezes again at 100percent it very well could be the 3rd partion sector of your SATA drive....ive seen this before.
Is this when you try a second and third time to download the same movie? Try a different one. Update to version 2.2 (came out last night). It has upgraded reliability for the internet. Hopefully that helps. Good luck!!
