Sony releases fix for firmware v4.45 - You may now un-brick your PS3

I saw this:

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/06/27/playstation-3-update-4-46-update-out-now-details-on-unbricking-consoles.aspx

Over at Game Informer, saying that Sony has new firmware (4.46) and a fix to un-brick PS3's that were hit by 4.45. The page with details for the fix is here:

https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4984

And so closes another chapter (well... For the moment anyway) in Sony's ongoing public displays of screwing their customers.

2. I've not seen any reports of anything wrong so... You should be fine

I try to wait a few hours after a patch gets released before downloading it. I have my PS3 set to NOT auto download patches so I can go check the intertubes before putting it on.

3. I do that, too.

That's what saved me from being bricked. Luckily I saw your post before turning on my console.
