Quick question. Basically I'm trying to update a PS3 for a friend that doesn't have net access but the first time I tried, it couldn't find the update data. Now I went away and read the PS3 site and seem to have found that you need to place a PS3 folder on the device that contains the update in an UPDATE folder. However when I put this into my PS3, admittedly up to date, it just says "no applicable data found". In comparison, doing it through the net informs you that you have the latest firmware installed.
Basically I want to check that this stuff works on early, non upgraded PS3s as my friend is a considerable distance away and I don't want to get there to find the thing doesn't work.
