Sony Blocks PS3 Proxy Methods, PS3 Firmware 3.42 Issues Arise


188w ago - A few days ago Sony released PS3 Firmware 3.42 which plugged the PS3 JailBreak exploit, and today they have blocked PlayStation 3 proxy connection methods amid reports of 3.42 update issues.

As of today, to connect to PSN and use your PS3 online users are required to update to Firmware version 3.42 rendering the PS3 Firmware Bypass and DNS methods useless.

Additionally, garyopa reports via Product-Reviews.net that some users who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.42 are now experiencing various issues, to quote:

"There is numerous reports of 'Sound Problems,' they seem to be the biggest problem, with sound cutting in and out. Also reports of games like COD:MW2, Battlefield 2: Bad Company, Madden 2011 in crashing or not even loading at times.

Of course with every new firmware update, there is the series of reports of 'bricks,' the PS3 just looping, or frozen forever after the update."

there are always people reporting that there ps3 has been bricked after firmware updates but it can be understood with the ps3 having so many different hardware moddels its laways inevitable that there firmware wont work properly with all these hardware models.

and i would like to say i didn't see the firmware bypass block coming but sony has that down like the back of there hand now.
