Yeah they pulled the update, im guessing that they will release a fixed 2.40 or possibly 2.41 to fix all of the problems people are having, my only worry is that the problem is the update is somehow corrupting the hard drive, which i dont think can be fixed in any way besides a reformat. Hopefully they can fix it.

I just DL'd 2.40 from the website, put it on an SD, and successfully updated my Jan 07 60gb. Works perfectly.

I tried formatting the hard drive but that didn't work and now it does not even boot up. It turns off after a few minutes and nothing is displayed.
It's out of warranty now so I have to pay Sony 150 to get it fixed. Next firmware update I will wait before I update. I hope they give me a 60gb and not a 80gb back.
