    make sure update file is in right folder and named correctly.

    Make a folder named PS3 on usb. Make folder inside it named UPDATE. place the file in that folder and name it PS3UPDAT.PUP.

    if it doesnt work try the other usb port. it should be the one closest to the disc drive.

    yes, i do that all good but dont recognise...
    dont knew what i missed..
    can do this on regular OFW 4.86 or need to install HFW first?
    i do HFW before patch (dont see the deference about OFW and HFW, looks same )

    oh man wait...
    i make folder named UPDAT not UPDATE
    damm it...
    i am off now,will try again tomorow, thank you much,hope it works

    sometime people name the file PS3UPDATE.PUP also but its PS3UPDAT.PUP (no E!)
