PS3 Firmware Update 2.41 is Now Available!

333w ago - To quote from Eric Lempel (Director, PlayStation Network Operations) via the PlayStation Blog yesterday: As many of you know, we released PS3 Firmware update v2.40 last week, but had to take it offline temporarily because, for a limited number of users, the XMB wouldn't display after the update was installed. We've been able to fix the problem, and I'm happy to report that Firmware Update v2.41 will be released shortly.

That being said, those interested can grab PS3 Firmware v2.41 below!

Download: PS3 Firmware Update v2.41 (US) / PS3 Firmware Update v2.41 (EU)

More soon, when official word is available on a changelog. However, it's presumed this is a minor update, simply fixing an issue in 2.40 that prevented the XMB from displaying properly after installing on a limited number of PS3 consoles.

I've also updated to 2.41 yesterday and I have absolutely no problems running regular DVDs (DVD5 , DVD9) or Blu-Ray Discs for that matter. Might be a problem on your end.

2.41 also contains an extra bonus in that under the 'players met' list in the Fiends Icon there is an added 4th page to the PPCs (Playstation Profile Cards), which details the last game played/met and times and similar.

Furthermore, the update has also changed the image for the platinium trophy. The 2.40 platinum was a crown and now it is a proper trophy.

I have tried to install a downloaded demo from the PSN via the proxy method. Specificallyy the pkg was background downloaded through the proxy when in 2.40 and once running 2.41, the same error 8002AE04 was present when attempting the installation. It is fair to say that as 2.41 is only the same as 2.40 only safer that the problem should still, and IS, still there.

I have a UK PS3 and PAL Region 2 DVDs, I just tried this but no problems. Perhaps yours is a oddity or i'm just lucky, although I haven't heard of this elsewhere over the internet banter.

Since updating to 2.41 earlier today my PS3 no longer likes to play DVD's. The problem is this, the PS3 will display the disk in the XMB as normal but when you hit play the screen goes black and all your buttons lock-out but this is not always the case.

Sometimes the DVD will play as it should but upon stopping playback or removing the disk, you guessed it, it locks out again. I have rang round friends and they are having the same problem, I have also rang Sony who were no help at all (as usual), claiming that I was the only person to call in with this problem.

Now is this just a region thing? I am in the UK and am using retail R2 DVD's. Are any of you having this problem or is it just a few of us unlucky people in Europe?
