195w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] has confirmed that PS3 Firmware update version 3.55 blocked access to lv2 kernel "execute" access, however, if you can patch back in a method to lv1_write_htab_entry, you can re-enable this area.

Today Sony Network Operations Americas VP Eric Lempel has announced that PS3 Firmware update v3.55 has arrived and simply adds a security patch.

More details are posted below, and to quote: "A new PS3 system software update, v3.55, will be released soon. This is a minor update that adds a security patch."

As expected, the PS3 Firmware 3.55 update works with the E3 Card Reader so you are still able to put the PS3 in Factory/Service Mode, however, Sony has revoked lv2diag.self file_1 patching the ability to downgrade (via PSDowngrade or PSGrade) or JailBreak PlayStation 3 consoles on Firmware above version 3.50.

Currently it is possible for PS Downgrade / JailBreak users to exit the PS3 Factory/Service Mode and get back to a normal Retail PS3 console using the lv2diag.self file_2.

Finally, although not recommended for PS3 homebrew fans, PS3 Firmware 3.55 is a mandatory update for those seeking to use PSN.

While some have reported the various bypass methods are temporarily working, more promising solutions include PS3 hackers continuing work on decrypting PS3 Firmware 3.50 with version 3.55 next in their sights.

I picked up the Move 320 GB bundle when it first came out and it has 3.40, but the 160GB units I think are probably the safest bet to still have 3.40 on them. You can always return it and try another store worst case scenario

You can still get ps3's on 3.40 in stores like Wal mart, K-Mart, Target, etc. but 3.42 and higher are in the deliveries so if you're thinking of getting a 2nd or 3rd, better jump on them quick.
Ok well I'm going to the store in the morning enough said lol but seriously can't wait to see everybody's thoughts on this issue, as well as great news updates

It was just a question of time, when this comes. But that it is possible to go in Factory Mode is cool. Maybe there can be done more with it.

So looking forward to not be able to play online! -- damn sony always releasing updates all the time, which is complete was of time. Very sad lg5 tool wont work or Dns method, but i am on wired connection, so that might be the reason. Anyone have solution to get online with wired connection without updating?

As now can i jailbreak my ps3 on firmware 3.50 now? If not it's not worth waiting to update!
