PS3 Update Center 4.86

 

We decided to put together a page explaining the proper processes in updating your PS3. There are several different methods for updating. You can update directly from the PS3, you can update using data on a game disc, or you can download the update file from your PC and update using a USB drive or memory card. Downloading the file directly from Sony’s servers to your PC is generally the fastest way to grab the PS3 update file. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us, or just ask in the comments below.

If this information looks familiar, like maybe from the PlayStation forums, that’s because Ftwrthtx wrote this for us.

Be sure to download the proper file for your PS3. Japan’s update file isn’t the same as the US or EU update file.

If you are stuck at the wavy screen update again via Safemode.

Here is the download link. Note the region:

Update using a PC Required items

  • PLAYSTATION®3 system
  • A wireless controller
  • A USB cable
  • A PC with Internet access
  • Storage media (Memory Stick™, SD Memory Card, CompactFlash®)* or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive
    (At least 130 MB of free space required)
    * An appropriate USB adaptor (not included) is required to use storage media with some models.

Update data download procedure

  1. Create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data.
    Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the storage media or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
  2. Download the update data from the above links and save it in the “UPDATE” folder created in step 1.

Notice: Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3™ system will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.

  • Location: Save in the “PS3” folder > “UPDATE” folder
  • File name: Save as file name “PS3UPDAT.PUP”.

Update procedure Notices

  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system or remove the storage media or USB device during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • During an update, the power button on the system front and PS button of the controller are inactive.
  1. Insert the storage media or USB device that contains the update data in the PS3™ system.
  2. From the home menu, select  (Settings) >  (System Update), and then press the button.
  3. Select [Update via Storage Media], and then press the button.

  4. The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

 

  1. Start the update data.
    Press the button to start the update data. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.
  2. Confirm that the update was successful.
    After the update has been completed, go to Settings Icon (Settings) > (System Settings) > [System Information]. If the [System Software] field displays the version number of the update, the update was successful.

Hint: You can delete the update data from the storage media or USB device after the update has been successfully completed.
