PS3 Firmware Update 3.42 is Now Available, Details Incoming

189w ago - Update: Several users who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.42 have now confirmed (along with Sony directly) that Sony has indeed added 'additional security features' and patched the PS3 exploit used for PS JailBreak, PSGroove and PSFreedom as expected so it is advised you do NOT update if you plan to use them.

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

sell your ps3 on ebay, buy a new one from the store, you might end up losing 20-50 but its worth it in my opinion.

what can i do when a friend updated my ps3 to 3.42??

Prepare to shell out some extra cash for a PS3 with < 3.41 Firmware, and/or pray that Sony didn't just patch up one of the most convenient exploits yet.
