25w ago - Following up on PS3 Firmware 4.41, today Sony has released PS3 System Software update 4.45 followed by reports of mass-bricking (with PSN temporarily closed via Error 8002A308) so currently it is advised NOT to install it.
Beware as it is causing a lot of consoles (mine included) to brick! There seems to be a glitch (pictured below) with a lot of users updating to that firmware and getting freezes after restarting. For those curious, the new update is supposed to allow users to 'opt-out' of the pop-up messages that you earned a trophy while playing a game.
Some reports indicate that this primarily affects those with 500+ GB hard drives, however, it is advised not to update to 4.45 until Sony remedies the issue. Currently they have rolled back to Firmware 4.41 meaning when you boot up your PS3 you will no longer be prompted to download the 4.45 update.

On the other hand, the uniqueness of this, is that just your CFW offers the ability to launch applications in the background and these things, show that when the CFW provide useful ideas and instead locked away, are offered the possibility the dev, they can do things and are more likely to do so.

You try hard enough and you provide the info or you worry your porting (I mean Iris Manager), as did Miralatijera (in 4.31 gave us all the information he could and at 4.40, made the...
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.
