Patch 1.36: FAIL!

Honestly, this is just..I don't know whether it's funny or sad or what. But as most (if not all) of you will soon come to find, when trying to update Home to 1.36, rather than updating, it'll just reset your PS3. So before I even tried patching mine (I actually for got until I saw this), I saw this on Twitter:

#PSHome - for those having difficulty patching to 1.36, there is a workaround posted on the forums now:

What?! A "workaround"? Haha, are you serious? Basically, for some reason, if you try hitting X to start the install process, it will just reset your PS3. What you have to do is wait for the HDD light to not be lit up anymore. They say wait for it to stop blinking, but mine was just lit up solid, and the time it took for me to wait for the light to go off was similar to the time it takes to load into Home. Oh, and the patch is on 5210KB.

Anyways, here's what the patch is supposed to do:

Patch Notes Improvements
  • We have reduced the time Home takes to start up. After installing and loading the patch for the first time, subsequent loads will be significantly quicker from then on.
  • We’ve also improved the 3D audio positioning for stereo and 5.1 surround sound.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed a bug that could cause large files to be improperly cached.
  • Fixed a bug that would prevent you from changing the size of the cache under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when taking photographs.

It does seem to be faster jumping from space to space, but the initial start-up is still pretty slow.
