Caroline and everyone else, I do not believe it matters what firmware you currently have. Follow the directions posted by Joey Johnson. They work. After you have the good firmware installed you can then do a system update to the current firmware (if you want to). I did what Joesy suggested back when he posted it and I have had no problems using my PS3 normally. I can use all features and update firmware like it was any other PS3 you buy in the store. Here is what Joey posted back in May 2012. (However, I did just notice that his link is dead. You can try this link instead. I don't know if the firmware in this link will work, but the link is good as of today. [http://www.mediafire.com/?kd1q9j9ic1zwc5c|http://www.mediafire.com/?kd1q9j9ic1zwc5c] ) "...i'll just provide you with my already patched firmware so you and everyone else on Demo firmware doesn't have to do the technical work to create it. I'll provide link at the end of this post, One thing to think about, Updating through the XMB(System menu main screen) Does work but in this case it may not detect the firmware, If the XMB system update does not recognize it turn off the system and do the following to put the system into Recovery mode to update. Step 1: Power off system as i said Step 2: Hold down the power button untill the system turns off again and the light is red Step 3: Hold down the power button again but this time the system will beep once, then shortly after it will beep 3 times fast when it does this release your finger off the power button, Look on the screen it will say Hook the controller up with USB, do this then you will have a men of options, this is the recovery menu this is used alot by people who are techical with the system and to fix problems also Firmware updates. Now click System Update and make sure your flash drive is plugged into the ps3, now click start and select at the same time, it will check for the firmware. Now just wait and follow the steps once it in down preparing and boots into system Updater, after it says installing and not to turn off the system you're pretty much set, when its down it will reboot and boot into your new Retail firmware. the firmware file name is already named for you, put in folder structure like this, The PS3UPDAT.PUP is the firmware file "PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP""
