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

I've been hunting the net for info on this firmware and all i can find is on the official us.playstation blog and it just says added security features. the part i hate about these updates is the fact you dont even know what your getting until a few days later.

You agree to install and you agree to the new terms and the TOS dosent even specify. Man $ony will do anything to try and protect this system. i wanna jailbreak mine but im willing to wait it out and see what the scene puts together. i already sacrificed OtherOS to play Red Dead Redemption online with my buddies.

If Jailbreak alows to run Homebrews could it be possible to decrypt the 3.42 FW and make it CFW for running unsigned codes?

Still no changelog , come on $ony, how do you want people to agree an update without knowing what's inside

it works but the psn store is outdated, and it wont allow non usa ip to access the movies menu even though my computer is on a usa ip.
