145w 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."

This sucks so we have to wait just to play online i am really gettting sick of this. I don't want to update because it probably brick my ps3.
-- Sony can keep patching the ps3 with frame ware updates, but the scene will keep one step ahead just u wait we will never fall and never give up. You can't kill the scene it is more powerful then you think it is.
This goes out to anyone who is fed up with sony and there stupid tactics. First take the Linux away and now we can't even play online. Never loose faith in the scene they will be head of Sony no matter what.
