Firmware 2.52 is Now Available (Direct Links)

Posted on 05. Nov, 2008 by in News

Sheesh that was quick, I just posted details on Firmware 2.52 and it’s already out! If you read my previous post you would have seen that not much has been updated.

* The playback quality of some PS3 format software has been improved.

* A text entry issue that occurs when using the on-screen keyboard, USB keyboard or Bluetooth keyboard with some PS3 format software has been addressed.


South Africans / Europeans HERE is the direct download of the latest 2.52 firmware, instead of d/ling on your ps3. The American readers of PS3Blog can get it HERE.

How to install direct download Firmware onto Ps3:

  1. Before starting, use your PC to create a folder named ‘PS3′ on the storage media or USB device. Within the folder, create a folder named ‘UPDATE’ (This folder name is case sensitive and must appear in all capital letters). Once the UPDATE folder has been created, download the PS3 system software update (The link above) to this location.
  2. Once the update data has been saved, disconnect the storage device and connect it to your PS3 via the slots under the slot cover or the USB connectors depending on the device you’re using.
  3. Once connected, navigate to Settings on the PS3 Home Menu, select [System Update] and then [Update via Storage Media]. Select the connected device and your PS3 will install the update data stored there.

    Is this the link for 2.50 or 2.52? The heading says 2.52, but the description says 2.50.

    I like for sony to bring an update where you can change the font color to suit the wallpaper i.e bright background = dark font!
