Sony unleashed a new firmware for the PS3 today – version 3.42. I wonder what new features it adds?
If you guessed â€œNone, it just makes the PSJailbreak stop working,â€ well then you’d be right on the money.
According to the PS Blog, firmware 3.42 â€œincludes additional security features.â€ According to reports circulating on the internet though, what it does is render the piracy-enabling USB-dongles – PSJailbreak, PSGroove and PSfreedom - useless.
For now. According to the people who make the exploits they can be updated to possibly work again on newer firmwares. It seems we’ve entered the same cat-and-mouse scenario that’s plagued the PSP for years, with hackers and Sony constantly leap-frogging each other.
