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!

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.
