>> [PS3] TRY THIS! (BF4 freezing/crashing workaround) <<

[ Edited ]

Players,

 

After a deep search on the net about  the freezing/crashing issues on BF4, i found a solution that stopped my game to crash. After i did the following workaround, i still didn't had to restore the file system on my console.  TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK, but it worked for me.

 

1- Delete all the profile/game save, the game data and the 1.05 patch (The patch is inside the BF4 game data, so deleting the game data may delete the patch)

 

2- Verifiy if your firmware is actualized (Today, its in the version 4.53)

 

3- Install BF4 game with the console disconnected from the internet

     When the game begins after the install quit before the "press start screen". (So the game don't crate a profile save yet)

 

4- Connect the console on the net and enter in the game. (this should make the patch 1.05 install)

     When the game begins quit again before the "press start screen".

 

5- Start BF4 and play

 

After i did these steps, my game don't froze yet and i didn't restored my file system since then. The online problems (invisibility bug, black screen after the mach, reset weapons, etc.) persists, but you don't have anymore to listen the 3 beeps and waint 5~10 min to restore your system. Just quit the game and enter again.

 

Hope this solution helps someone, i'ts worth a try!

 

Regards,

erreik

Does this delete of all the stuff you have unlocked in multiplayer?

This is an outdated method, please try the following workaround from the community member MorningTimeCloud:

 

1. Turn off Playstation 3.

2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.

3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps

4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.

5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button

6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

7. Select Restore File System.

No it does not. I deleted all my game data and it didn't delete any of my multiplayer unlocks.

I already tried the recovery file system on PS3 safe mode  Apollo_v7... Didn't work

 

As said it's only a workaround for the avids fans. After some time (Hours, days, i dont know) playing the same problems returns. For me, after 3 days playing a lot, the crashes returns.

 

I'm not playing BF4 anymore since the time of the post.

Some players may have their issues fixed by using ERREIK's post. Some / Most may not since this is an older method for a older patch. If this method does not work, Please create your own thread and explain it very thorough of what your issue is and what you have already tried and we will try our best to solve it. 

 

Thanks.
