Sponsored Links
203w 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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, if i update i can use any method of jailbreak until a patch is released for 3.42.

I don't care about playing online, but is there a way to play offline without updating? I bought Split Second and couldn't play it without it asking me to update and I never updated because I wanted to keep otherOS.

As i believe it, when the game asks for a game update ("update to v1.1" or similar etc) - that is stored on the disc and is not relative to the fw, in which case you can just update the game.

If it specifically asks for fw >3.15 then you will have to find anything between 3.21-3.41 to update to so you can play it unfortunately.

Hi peepz, just think about something but don't have time right now. About spoofing the MAC adress of th ps3 by using the ftp and change it to the router's one or pc one. I don't even know if we catch and change or implement things with it??

just a thought..

I hope this JB thing doesn't end up just being the same as the JTAG Xboxes. While there is a good scene for JTAG items, only those who didn't update their firmware were lucky. A year later and there's still no method for the rest.

That said, i've already got a blackcat and teensy and have been enjoying my new found freedom.
