    No problem... for those unaware, the last update (2.80) still showed 2.76 on the updater so that is why it wasn't initially a mandatory update.

    Sadly, this one is required to go online with the PS3, PSN, Home, etc:
    Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=3.0000-;
    Dest=84;ImageVersion=00008751;SystemSoftwareVersio n=3.0000;
    If someone who updates their non-Slim PS3 with it can check if the new Bootscreen is now in it that would be appreciated.

    Hrmm... why would people not use the System Update software to update the bios?

    Is there some sort of advantage or patching that I should be aware of before I download and apply this new bios?

    can anyone please iterate on the "Custom Remote Play Settings - Manually set a device (such as a PSP system) to be used for remote play" item? how has it changed, what new options do you get?
