Default Did 2.40 brick your PS3?

No for me on my 60GB. I also have a 40GB, but I haven't even taken that out of its box yet.

I'm curious how widespread this "problem" is, as it seems to have affected nobody on both NeoGAF and Shoryuken.com.

I think it's Kotaku FUD.

Here is the same thread from Shoryuken.com. So far, it also reports of 100% chance of Kotaku being garbage.

Nope, it worked fine on both of my 60-gig PS3s. Shouldn't I get two votes.

Launch 60gb version updated to 2.40 with no apparent issues. In fact I was looking for somewhere here to talk about it because it found a media server within my network. That was cool in itself, but it also reflects access to my Rhapsody music files which I find awesome! I need to play with this more to see how in-depth this goes.

No problems for me so far. I do have an upgraded hard drive and I wonder if that helps.

Sony was good enough to replace my launch 60GB model with a newer one due to noise issues 8 months ago. My new machine is virtually silent and took the 2.40 update (and all others) without any issues... even though I am using custom themes.

I think that either people are using "home-made" themes that have issues, or the whole issue is mainly BS. Take you pick.

Nope, all four working fine! (80,60,2x40). Actually, it was my little brother who did it I was asleep(SICK) and he came over to play some COD4 and updated for me lol he was the one that told me about the fluctuating progress bars and I was like WHAT!

EDIT: How come there's no way to vote twice on a poll, it would really help to show how stupid this "WIDE SPREAD" bug really is. I understand that it's there but KOTAKU made it seem like it was a guarantee to brick if you updated. What I found funny also was right under it there was a link for the Xbox and it's SUMMER upgrade to have an UI that matches PS3's!
