Where does the PS3 place game update files before installing?
I'm trying to play my retail copy of SSF4 on my Test unit just to goof around. I downloaded the 1.01 game update on np, but it won't install on 3.20 which is fine. I installed the blackbox ftp to see if I could grab the package off the ps3 and place it on a flash pen, so I can downgrade to 1.0 debug and just install it there. However, I cannot find the retail package and I'm assuming the directory isn't readable without a jailbreak?
I've tried all the possible directories listed and none have it and a lot don't allow me to read the directory.
Is this not possible?
Thanks, I'll give that a shot!
Where do you place install packages for firmware 1.0? I got sitting on the root dir of my USB drive but 1.0 says no packages are available to install.
you need to put the update on the flash drive as so " [root] -> PS3 -> UPDATE " and then put the ps3updat.pup in that folder. Choose system update from the system menu options and then choose flash drive.
and to answer your first question. When the PS3 downloads an update it stores the files in "app_home/PS3UPDATE/" which, you cant access.
Thanks, but you're first answer does not apply to debug firmware 1.0. It does not look in the usb drive for a package to install. I'm not asking how to install firmware, but packages.
Debug 1.0 does not look in the root usb drive for a package to install, my usb flash pen never even lights up (so it's not even searching it). Where does 1.0 look for a package?
Ok just tried it. I burnt a dvd-r with the package on the root, 3.21 picked up the packages this way. 1.0 Doesn't find anything.
Tried with an SD card. 1.0 doesn't find anything.
Edit: Found it! It's the ms duo slot.
+ Rep for ya tragedy, worked like a charm. Installed a retail package using 1.0
