I’m passing the torch. Someone who was sent the .bin file please forward it to those who request it going forward. Thank you. Many many thanks to @ghkent for sharing the file to start out with. Bless you!
But, it is not working for me. I'm still getting Error 008 when updating the software. Tried 2 different usb drives. Tried factory reset from System->Advanced system settings->Factory reset. Tried factory reset from the secret menu (hit home 5 times, fast forward 3 times, rewind twice).
