    Hi all,

    So I bought a PS3 Slim with 3.30 firmware. I read that 3.41 (or something like that) is the latest firmware... Now, should I update my console before Sony manage to block out the Jailbreak Jig in the next update?

    Or should I leave it as is?

    I am not so sure about the pros and cons of each firmware revision, and any advice is greatly appreciated...


    Thanks!

    For having a lot of posts on here, ya don't read much do ya? lol. All the Jailbreak threads says that 3.41 is what they use. So update, however I'd wait until the devices actually come out.

    You can't go online unless you update. Also, if you're planning to use the jailbreak released, it doesn't matter if you update to the latest current, since it works on it (although you will get banned from PSN for using it, unless you never go online).

    So, to summarize: Update, but don't update. OK.

    Update. It's almost pointless to have a PS3 with no online.

    Also, the jailbreak is useless. You'll get banned from PSN anyway.

    The device works with 3.41. That isn't going to change.

    Seeing as your not going online I guess it's okay for you to get the Jailbreak thingamabob. But may I ask why your not going to go online?

    No real interest.
    I grew up playing single player Saturn games, I don't really care for multiplayer games.

    And I also wanted the PS3 to play AVIs etc on my TV...
    That's pretty much it.

    And, I also figured that it's now or never. The next batch of PS3s, I am quite sure, will not work with the exploit.

    Quote out of context much?

    Single player games + AVI
    does not equal AVI only...

    the main reason i want a psjailbreak/clone is for ac 1 & 2 which has a shit-load of graphical glitches during gameplay for me due to my phat having a pretty gay disk drive

    Damn modern consoles and their flakey lasers.

    My Sega Saturn and Dreamcast still run @ 100% with no dead lasers... Anything recent, however, seems to be plagued by laser problems..

    to be fair, it may be a sony issue

    phat ps2s had a few probs iirc and some of the psx consoles had cheap plastic parts in the drives that led to them failing from average use too [​IMG]
