Sony Updates PS3 Firmware – PsJailbreak Broken

39 second read


Sony unleashed a new firmware for the PS3 today – version 3.42. I wonder what new features it adds?

If you guessed “None, it just makes the PSJailbreak stop working,” well then you’d be right on the money.

According to the PS Blog, firmware 3.42 “includes additional security features.” 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.

    Has anyone tried it yet? I think I’m first going to wait and see before I download it, just in case it bricks my PS3.

    Updates provide extra value? Why wouldn’t you want that?

    Sony added support for patches in the previous firmware – and they using it now – you don’t have to download the whole 200MB update…

    Sorry Lans i live on the other side of the country and no im just getting the regular edition. There are too many of my favourite games comming out early next year like Deus X, Dead Space 2, Killzone 3, Portal 2, Yakuza 4 and Dragon Age 2. I need to spend prudently this X-mas so i can enjoy the fantastic new year games.
