NO!! sony will have to service your PS3 and place it in service mode to restore it to the previous firmware. Once you upgrade a firmware for the PS3 your stuck with the upgraded firmware unless you send it to Sony to roll it back! Putting the PS3 back to restore to factory settings will not fix your problem!
NO!!!!!!!! you have to send your system in to sony to have it serviced!!!!!!!!! but without a receipt good luck trying. hopefully they will send out an update later on that will allow you to do so like Microsoft did with the XBOX 360.

- This error is caused by an issue with updating the PlayStation 3 firmware by USB drive. Ensure there are no problems with the USB drive. Download the firmware update to the USB drive again to ensure the firmware file is not corrupt. Try the installation of the firmware again. If all else fails, update firmware over the network.
it may be bad sector on HD or bad firmware update... first thing I would do is try to rollback firmware or reupdate firmware... Then take a look at the HD.... you may also try resetting it back to start on settings menu however you will lose everything saved. Other than that you may want to look into replacing the HDD in the PS3.
Cardinal Rule ....1
NEVER update any FIRMWARE.....
Cardinal Rule ...2
if in doubt refer to rule 1
You CANNOT rollback firmwares once loaded, Firmwares are programs written within a CHIP inside the hardware.
You can rollback Drivers and update them also, but Firmwares are not of the same nature.
for example if you have a MP3 player that has a specific Firmware, the firmware is specifically programed to run that hardware(MP3 player), once you change the firmware the hardware will not be able to recognize the firmware and viceversa.
Deleting the game data and reinstalling via the disk after installing the new firmware update seems to allow play to continue, when nothing else does. Although after about 45 minutes I had a 2nd hardlock and had to delete and reinstall again. I think played for another hour with no issues.

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\*your user name*\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates. Delete the firmware you don't want, in your case it'll be "iPod_188.8.131.52". Turn off the internet (turn off the router/whatever). Connect the iPod, then click Restore. As iTunes cannot connect to the internet and get the newest firmware (1.1.1), it will use the latest firmware in that folder, rolling you back to 1.0.2.
Do you still have the CDs that came with that disk ? Well, you had the best mp3 player, hard to find, the YH-925 with a FM. Wow that's great. You need to find a program like Eraser, and format completely your hard disk. On the back of yor player says your model number and year, based on this you can find your previous firmware in case you didn't make a backup. Good Luck !
