According to Sony, on multiple occasions, a "small number." But compared to the number of people who should have been affected by a routine FW upgrade (zero), it's clearly a very significant number if you visit the offical PS community boards. It's kind of bothered me how Sony has tried to downplay this through PR spin.

Update 4.46 is live. For those with bricked systems, download the update onto a USB and follow these instructions:

Thanks. I just downloaded and applied the fix this morning. Everything is up and running again on my 1 TB, with no data loss. I'm glad I was patient and didn't attempt any band-aid fixes in the meantime.

In spite of getting bricked by 4.45, I'm not turning off auto-patching. That's one of my favorite (non-free game) feature of Plus membership. For system FW updates, you are required to accept the EULA before it installs, so even if it downloaded, you'll have a chance to decline the install until after you made sure it's safe.

Glad to see you're back up with no issues. I read about the problems with the update and declined when I got home that day. I did turn off auto download after that, until I read today the 4.46 is working fine, so I'll be back on automatic. Since the option is there to decline the install there's really nothing to worry about.

It won't automatically patch your system. You have to do that (agree to the terms of agreement, etc) so you'll be fine.

I was lucky, updated to 4.45 and never had problems.
