Although he didn't specify it, as expected the PSP update also patches the user mode exploit hole found in GripShift [Register or Login to view links]
That being said, do not update if you have a TA-088 v3 motherboard on your PSP-2000 Slim or if you have a PSP-3000 and wish to run homebrew code. Sony has now added a check that automatically detects the savedata as corrupt, and will refuse to display it on the list of available saves.
