Sony Blocks PS3 Proxy Methods, PS3 Firmware 3.42 Issues Arise

Sponsored Links
223w 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."

but this also makes you wonder, what do they change on their end to make the firmware bypass not work??!

I loved that saying "all I can say to you is, bring a lunch. You're gonna be here a while." I'm posting that on facebook how do I rep you?

They blocked the firmware bypass back when they released 3.21 to remove other OS. guess they have to modify it for each new firmware they release.

maybe with the ftp server for ps3 we can figure a way to spoof the firmware version... just a thought.
