    Just went on my PS3 and see that there is a new system update. Not sure what it involves, but can only guess is is in response to the PSJailbreak/PSGroove. Waiting on this one for a while!

    UPDATE: DO NOT UPDATE! This is confirmed to block PSJailbreak/PSGroove/PSFreedom!

    UPDATE 2: From PSGroove website

    Nice, they got onto it quick. Good. Is that the only update to it?

    I'm kind of curious what all (in how, which won't be easily made public obviously) they patched. Did they remove the capability completely of retail PS3s to be dropped into dev mode using their dongle let alone this pirated wannabe legit dongle or what? Or was it just a direct snipe at these things someone will get into a push and shove fight over making it go, sony plugs it, it goes again...wash rinse repeat. Hopefully for Sony they got smart and just removed the ability to run dev mode in any form legit tools or not on a stock unit. Probably would piss off some licensees if they were going that route instead of a pricey dev kit, but as it goes shit happens.

    Gotta hand it Sony, not only did they patch this exploit quickly, but the update took less than 5 seconds to download. [​IMG] Now I guess we'll see if PSJailbreak was really just a one-trick pony or not.

    Look at the Flag...
    Now the big question is: how many times, before brand new PS3 comes shipped with this update?

    Wii is so great, its the scene that just keeps on chugging.
    I HOPE the PS3 will be the same and that the hackers will find a way to keep the PS3 open. Just look at what the Wii has made possible. I've heard some say that Sony has not *specifically* blocked groove, its just that the code doesn't recognize 3.42, similarly to how it wouldn't work on 3.40 for instance. Don't quote me though.Nevermind, It was confirmed. I highly highly doubt that after all the PSJailbreak team has invested in this that they are just going to roll over.
    *fingers crossed* that this doesn't destroy the beginning of a fantastic homebrew scene. If devs got behind the PS3, it would be an absolute powerhouse, think XBMC on steroids. Literally emulate ANYthing, and play PS1/PS2/PS3 (the last 20 years) from a 2tB hard drive. I mean....woah. A home media center so powerful, it would put XBMC to shame (and I still think XBMC on my Xbox woops my 360/Wii/PS3 in terms of serving up some home theatre, guess thats why I use it as such, guess thats cause its *OPEN*.)
    For the people that said, meh, I'll just update cause I need my online, a workaround does exist it looks like. The proxy thing....forget the name. I would never forfeit the possibility of home-brew for online play. I'd buy another PS3 before that happened.
    Also this is not late in the game for the PS3. Its just 4 years in for what is supposed to be a 2016 cycle. Thats 6 more years.

    If you have already JailBroken your PS3, and are still on 3.41, then use Logan5's Proxy Tool. People have already confirmed it to be playing on PSN with 3.41 still.

    until they patch that in the next few days also
    they did the same thing with 3.15 with people bypassing the 3.21 PSN block using a proxy also

    change your primary dns, on the ps3, to

    Primary DNS: 67.202.81.137

    this will allow online access without updating

    Seems for me like a hotfix just to keep the piracy problem under control for now.
    can't believe, that it's that easy to patch the DEV mode away - this mode is deep into
    the ps3.

    oh yeah - who cares for these shittys ps3 games , with a ps3 you can do such wonderfull things,
    why waste your time with playing games?
    sony could stop this whole mess with releasing an open ps3 - no ability to play ps3 games to prevent
    piracy but oben for homebrew to run the ps3 as media station or emulator.

    Would it be possible for you edit the code section so it doesn't stretch the page? And why code instead of say quote or spoiler tags?
