Open the new PS3 folder and inside create a new folder called UPDATE (all capitals again). Turn on your Play Station 3 console and insert the storage media.

Move the downloaded firmware file into the UPDATE folder. From the Xross Media Bar, head over to Settings and finally to System Update.

If your PS3™ system software version is 4.81 (or later), you do not need to perform this update.

The Play Station 3 system software update may include security patches, new or revised settings and features, and other items which will change your current operating system.

The new PS3 firmware replaces version 4.45, which was released with the same feature last week but made some consoles inoperable.

Users who weren't locked out of the Play Station 3's Xross Media Bar will be able to download PS3 firmware 4.46 through the System Update menu.

In this guide we will teach you how to update the firmware of your Play Station 3 console using a flashdrive.

This is very useful if you cannot get Wi-Fi on your console or cannot get a wired connection.
