PS3 Firmware Update 4.76 Released Without Any Changelog [Update]

Sony has released a brand new firmware update for the PS3. This new firmware update is numbered 4.76, a .01 jump from the previously released firmware update and what’s strange is that there is no changelog for it yet.

In case you still haven’t updated your PS3, we recommend to do so with a warning since there are reports out there that it can cause issues with some PS3 consoles. It is highly recommended to use a hardwired connection or USB to update to this latest firmware.


We will update this article once we have a changelog but as of right now, there is none. The last firmware update for PS3 was 4.75 and it was a “stability update” as per the support website. It is safe to assume that this latest update is also another one of the stability updates for the console.

Update: The official PlayStation 3 support website has finally been updated with the latest firmware (4.76) and as expected the changelog remains the same for it.

System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

Let us know if you have updated to the latest version of PS3 in the comments below.

    Since I updated I no longer see anything on my TV. Apparently it is working in the background because I can still hear sounds when I press the controller buttons.

    Cool! I let it update, over and over and over for about 6 hours
    total last night and this morning. There is no way to cancel an update,
    there is no way to even get to a recovery screen, either from the
    incorrect method said by Sony staff to the correct way to get to
    Recovery Mode by the customers who have taken apart the product. Re-set
    doesn’t work, multiple button presses of the pwr button doesn’t work. It
    just loops over and over regardless of what i do once it turns on.
    Sadly, the last time an update happen, I rebooted about 40 times and it
    finally took. I wish it had bricked, because this time I’m stupid enough
    to do it a hundred for this 8002F157 just in case it may actually update.
