In a nutshell, PS3 Firmware 4.41 is a minor PlayStation 3 update that will improve system stability. I just got prompted to do a system update. Looks like no online until some PS3 CFW news appears, however, the encryption keys and the passphrase is still the same.

Below is what the Tweet states, to quote: "PS3 software update v4.41 is coming today, it's a minor update that will improve system stability."

As always, more details and an official changelog will be posted once they become available.

Below are some changes from eussNL as well:

A new CFW will probably only be spoofed, and won't have any of the features from the OFW, it won't be until games have to be signed with higher keys will they make a new CFW, I think you should be OK to transfer games saves still, will have to wait and see.

4.41 BLOCKS transfering a save game to the USB

PLEASE CFW stop that from hapening

Most likely its to counter the save game hacks that have been on OFW systems too, not just CFW.

Its SUCKS if your into swapping engines in GT5, I wont update unless the blocking of transferring of files to USB is still allowed, please CFW Team hook us up

the passphrase is the same
