PS JailBreak Warns Buyers Not to Update Past 3.41 PS3 Firmware

Sponsored Links
226w ago - A few days back the PS JailBreak folks warned buyers about less expensive clone PS3 modchips, including the x3JailBreak and the PS3Key USB modchip, and today they sent out a wave of warning e-mails to those who pre-ordered the device not to update their PS3 Firmware beyond version 3.41 until it is confirmed safe to do so.

TQCast.com (linked above) confirms receiving one of these such e-mails, and reports it as containing the following notice, to quote:

"Just a friendly update email and some advice for you over the coming days and weeks.

While PS Jailbreak team have told us it should be possible to support future firmware versions on the PS3, it's is not guaranteed, they will need to access any newer firmwares than 3.41 and if needed release an update for the PS Jailbreak to support the newer firmwares.

So we wanted to give you all some advice that if a system update is released for the PS3 in the coming days or before you receive your PS Jailbreak which blocks system updates, we recommend that nobody update their PS3 for the time being.

If a PS3 system update newer than 3.41 is released you should keep an eye on the PS Jailbreak website for news on compatibility with the PS Jailbreak on the new firmware's. Only update your PS3 past 3.41 firmware if the PS Jailbreak team say that it's safe to do."

While this message seems like common sense to PS3 sceners, those new who pre-ordered a PS JailBreak chip and are not familiar with Sony's battle against piracy on the PSP may wish to take notice.

I am on firmware 3.41 and I don't plan on updating..I am fine with using this even though I wont be able to go online anymore. I never used the PSN Network anyway so for me its no big loss at all. For those who actually use the PSN Network then yes its a pain in the but and some might not want to use it, but for me its no issue.

The only thing is about updating games, that these games wont work if they are updated, so what do we do, not update them..if that is the case that is fine as long as the game gives you an option of not updating it.

It works on retail units and actually not debug units unless you get the manager.pkg patched. There is a patched version available but if you have a retail unit you have no use for it.

There are plenty of videos and reputable sources confirming that its actually legit this time.

Yep, it means retail. I think if you've done some reading you could have figured that out yourself. Or maybe it just sounded too good to be true for ya
