PS3 Firmware 3.21 Causing Problems?

With the launch of Playstation 3 firmware 3.21, every PS3 lost the ability to install another OS. But now, it seems that some users are experiencing more problems then just that. After the update has been installed, some users are having trouble accessing the Playstation Network, loading a disc-based game, and some cannot even turn their console on. A few users had freezing issues while updating their console, so some people could not even get to experience the loss of the install other OS ability. There are plenty of people who have not experienced any issues with the new firmware, but for those that have, Sony has yet to release an official statement on the matter.

Has anyone here experienced any issues with their PS3 after getting the new firmware?

You can't blame Sony, each console is different and releasing a near perfect update for every single console would be mighty hard.

@MrAlex: I test and develop software on embedded systems and they are the same price as ps3. They system is expected to run on much different systems compared to ps3. You can blame Sony for not testing enough on all systems. Bad QA.

My friend Ps3 is very wired. When he sing in is very fine, install the game Mw2 it runs fine then when he shoes the play online it loads the players status bar like 3 time but then when he select a game mode it goes to the lobby BANG! it freeze even the button whit the Play Station sign doesn’t work. Oh and the internet doesn’t load, he have to eject and re- install the game disc for the PS3 to recognize it, it freeze when he shot down the system using the controller, the loadings take like forever to finish, and other detail problems.

I have the disc problem. it wont load ANY of my discs no matter what. I thought it might be the laser was broken (even tho I suspected the update from the start) and when I called support (because I have a 2 year old 80 gig) they said it would cost 179 dollars!!! Fuck! I was soo pissed... they better get a new update soon,

I told my friend to make a complete format and upgrade it again or wait for new update. He shoos to format the PS3 V_V (MW2 is addicting you now). But is still slow on loadings.

this update made my system not want to recognize, or even take the disc into the drive. This is the second time this has happened in a three week period. The first time was when I finally decided to update to 3.15, and now with this. Sent it to sony after the first time, and same issue is occurring now(i think it wasn't repaired correctly the first time). Luckily it falls under their 90 day repair warranty and they will fix it free of charge.

Discs will read and launch but after loading save it either freezes after 10 minutes or I get stuck in an infinite loading screen. All other funtionality is fine. I don't want toreplace my bd lens and it be a firmware issue. Damn u sony. You gonna start gettin people to confuse you with microsoft.
