Recommended GT6 Updating Instructions

It seems that the GT6 updating errors are being caused by players not updating for longer periods of time. Those who keep up with updates seem to have less problems. The following instructions are being recommended to deal with updating errors.

 

PDI is looking to see if these instructions can be further simplified.


 

It seems the root cause of this was that players would let significant time lapse between updating GT6. When finally updating, the patches will download/install properly, however there is a file extraction that occurs while on the main menu warning screen. If this file extraction gets too big, the install will fail (after waiting for a very long time). 
 
Steps to address the “Installation Failed” issue:
  1. Backup save data file to PS Plus or USB drive and delete existing save data file from the PS3 prior to update process *
  2. Within the Games tab of the XMB select Game Data Utility
  3. Highlight GT6 Game Data and press the “Triangle" button and select DELETE
  4. While connected to PSN, highlight the GT6 game disc/game file from the XMB
  5. Press the “Triangle” button and select “Check for Updates” 
  6. Accept the update prompts and begin patch process via the XMB
  7. Allow the first 6 patches to download and install.
  8. Once the 6th patch has finished installing, press the “Circle” button to cancel the download process
  9. Scroll left while on the XMB, and highlight the Settings Tab
  10. Scroll down to the Network Settings tab>Internet Connection and select DISABLE (this step will prevent the title from trying to complete the remaining TPPS patch process)
  11. Boot GT6 and follow the in-game prompts until the main menu appears.  (this step will create new save data which will later be deleted)
  12. Once the initial in-game installation process is complete, press the “PS” button and Quit the game to return to the XMB
  13. Return to the Settings>Network Settings>Internet Connection screen and select ENABLE
  14. Highlight the GT6 game disc/game file and press the “Triangle” button and “Check for Updates”
  15. Once the first patch has completed it’s download/install process press the “Circle” button to Cancel
  16. Repeat steps 10-15 until all TPPS patches have been installed.
  17. Copy save data from step 1 back to the PS3 system (overwriting any existing save data that may have been created during the update process)

Although fairly complex, this worked every time. 


* If you don't have any progress, then you can skip this step

*Update*

I replaced the HDD on my PS3 with a SSD and started installing GT6 from scratch and the updates one at a time. Went well until 1.06 which installed and I was able to play a game.  Downloaded and installed 1.07 through the XMB menu and fired up the game, and it started the in game patcher.

Been showing an approximate time of 30 minutes for the last two hours. Is there any hope of finding a solution to this problem?

@fullerms From a user to user, I don't think there is much hope. We tried to do updates for a long (too long) time, without success. If the game WAS able to run the 1.07 patch successfully, it always hung on the 1.10 update.

 

All in all, it wouldn't be too bad if it only updated to 1.06 and was playable. But on 1.06 we have too many glitches, certain tracks don't load, freezes, etc. These are things we NEVER had on 1.22.

 

In our little piece of the world, we have all but given up on GT6, which is really too bad as it was an awesome game!

I think we are experiencing the "benefits" of Agile Software development which is defined as

@MastrGT Hello, I have been trying for about A MONTH now to install GT6 on 2 different PS3's, and also trying 2 different hard drives and a brand new 240gb SSD.  I've cleaned my, already pristine, disc (and laser on the super-slim).  I've replaced both my ethernet cable and coaxial cable with new ones for my wired cable internet connection.  I've tried over a dozen times to install using your instructions, which I feel are well written and easy to understand.  I've read all 11 pages of comments in this post.  I went and bought the second ps3, based on your comment earlier that a different ps3 would solve the issue.  But it didn't.  All of my updates are failing installing at 1.10 (like many other people).  You've said not to lose hope, but what do you suggest I do that I haven't already?  Most people have said that a second ISP didn't help, and I don't have access to one anyway.  My internet is good and solid typically.

 

FYI:  I do this:

-format hard drive

-setup system

-Download and install the first 6 updates through the XMB

-disable internet

-open GT6 and let it install "in-game"

-save and exit

-enable internet

-then repeat the process but only one update at a time

****crash going from 1.09 to 1.10 during "in-game" install****

 

I realize this has been discussed already in-length, but I haven't read anyone trying as many things as I have and still failing.  Any help is appreciated.   Thanks

At the moment, you can't do anything different to install GT6.

 

Iinquired about if anyone had looked at this issue, but they have not. I will try again and remind them that this is not the way the console environment is supposed to work, but it is still up to them to devote resources to fix it.
