To quote from PSGamer24 and CJPC HERE: "They fixed it and re-uploaded the firmware without telling anybody. The link is the same but the MD5 hash is different.

[CJ@localhost Download]$ md5sum PS3UPDAT-341*
00c835be718fc3d5f793e130a2b74217 PS3UPDAT-341-ORIGINAL.PUP
e07d2b84c9e9691c261b73e5f1aada20 PS3UPDAT-341-NEW.PUP


Furthermore , once unpacked the file dates for every dev_flash archive has changed to that of 7/29/2010 , vs the original of 7/21/2010 - as seen in the images below.

So, Sony did indeed update the firmware without informing anyone, probably a change in a single (or few) SPRX's. - Also, the new Auto Update feature in regards to PS3 Patches was not updated - so it was possible that it was not affected (or, that Sony did not fix it!)"

The FW update has nothing to do with getting the YLoD... The Fat PS3's just over heat too easily... My launch 60gig died 2 years after I got it before the whole YLoD issue became an internet sensation... easy solution though... just buy a Slim and upgrade the HD... it sucks not having BC now cause i still have a few classic PS2 games i like booting up from time to time.

Nice catch, I copied them backwards. They are switched (New/Original) now so the corresponding hash matches the correct word.

Whew, I thought I kept downloading the problematic one because I want to perform an upgrade with slim, and even though I did not upgrade its HDD nor tried to, but I still would like to steer away from it. Thank you for fixing it boss man.

System Software 3.41 (Update)

For those users who are replacing the PS3 hard disk drive: we are aware of the symptoms with the system software update 3.41, released on July 27, and that it will cause the update to stop in some occasions while replacing the PlayStation 3 (PS3) Hard Disk Drive (HDD) if the PS3 system is installed with version 3.41.

To resolve these symptoms, we have released a new version of system software update 3.41 with a very minor change (the version number does not change) on August 2. If you are experiencing such symptoms when replacing the HDD of your PS3 system, we kindly ask you to use the latest data and try again. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, and appreciate your understanding and continued support.

For any other questions, please contact your local customer service.
