The Bossman Posted January 30, 2011 Share Posted January 30, 2011 It seems firmware 3.56 has a bug in that installing a new hard drive will render it corrupt. The HD isn't corrupt, more like the firmware's corrupt. I tried to install my new Samsung 640GB HD yesterday, turned it on, and it said the software couldn't be run. So, I did as it said and DLed Sonys firmware 3.56 onto a memory stick, put it in the console and pressed start and select, and then it said data is corrupt error 8002F225. Other people are reporting the same thing, I posted a topic on Sonys forum about it --> http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion/Rolling-back-to-3-55-help/td-p/12325397 So, until Sony release 3.57, me and many other PS3 users can't use the console until they release a firmware update that actually works. And no, don't bother mentioning installing custom firmware because it's a high chance you'll just get banned from PSN if you're discovered with it.
