Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games
I just purchased a used ps3 and found out that it is stuck in demonstration mode 2.80. i found out about the code to unlock it temporarily but want to know if/how i can change to the standard ps3 firmware permanently. i tried to download the ps3 latest update onto a flash drive- did the whole creating the 2 folders, all in caps-but the ps3 said that there was no applicable update on it. So I was wondering if someone could help me come to a solution about it, so i don't have to enter the code every time i want to do something. Thanks!
Visit the Playstation3 website and download the lastest version onto a flash drive. Making sure you dont have any other software/files on the flash drive.
Create a folder on the flash drive in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the flash drive or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Install the playstation update into that folder. "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
Your console SHOULD now reconise the update.
If nothing changes restore the playstation fully to its default status.
