For those who just signed in to PlayStation Network, PS3 Firmware update 3.42 is now available to download.

Mate all you have to do is google that mswinsck filename and download that file... then place Logans and the ocx file in the same folder.

LG5Tool is working for me as well. Although I have Win 7 x64 and was receiving an error. All that is needed is the file mswinsck.ocx and place it in C:/Windows/sysWOW64 and then everything worked perfect for me.
i am stuggling with this the tool don't work on win7 64bit.

i copied both files in the folder but nothing that mswinsck does not exist in that folder i download the file and copied it there but still no joy. what should i do next?

Run-time error 5@

invalid procedure call or argument

this is the error i get as soon i sign in. it signs in and then this error shows up

I think nobody knows yet... It seems many know the existence of that log, but nobody have any kind of real info on it.

We need more infos, where is it, when is it sent, etc... As I said in another thread, we'll have to wait for Devs to tell us.

What they are getting at is not that the FW is stored on the HDD but the LOG file that sony looks at to ban the consoles from PSN? Where is that log filed stored at?
I've been trying to get a good answer to this since the jailbreak was released.

All I want to know is where the log file is stored? I've gotten conflicting information from this site and a few others. Some people say hdd, others say flash, none of them are devs. Really wish a dev would step forward and at least say something about it...

Augh my stupid brother updated so his stupid friend could play DJ Hero. FML, here's hoping they figure out the payload for 3.42

Sorry about that. I will not let anybody touch my PS3 no matter what. If someone want to then I have to be here to make sure not to updated FW. Now, you are stuck and hope someone will work around it. Maybe not.
