PS3 Help

I had my PS3 system fixed because it got the YLOD. When i got it back, i tried playing a newer game, and the system needed to update, and it tried, but it said it needed to install the other os. But I checked on my system and it says I already have it. Should I install it again? I hope someone can help me.

Re: PS3 Help

Was the system trying to update via disc or internet?

Re: PS3 Help

The "other OS" is what they called the feature that allowed you to install Linux (or something else I guess) on the system, alongside the usual OS. But, it was removed a while ago.

Did you have Linux installed on yours?
