    Yah just looked it up.

    So what happens when you jailbreak and a new update comes out...no PSN? Or you bypass it?

    Sucks that I restarted my PS3, cant play online now :'(

    EDIT: wasn't there an old DNS trick that allowed playing online with the old 3.41 firmware? Wouldn't that work on this situation too?

    PSN access is blocked on 3.55
    there is a DNS hack however expect it to be patched within a day (like always) so dont even bother unless your really desperate to get online

    somebody said they tried booting the FTP app and it doesnt start up and gives an error now

    You go to Network Settings, then internet connection settings, then custom, and then scroll right until you come to the DNS settings. Then you put in the numbers above

    EDIT: I can confirm the DNS bypass thing is working right now, I'm on kmeaws CFW

    Woah what? I thought that wasn't possible, since all the old games had just the old key

    I wasn't even aware that there was a new firmware update. Maybe it just hit an hour or two ago though since my PS3 has been on since about 3pm PST. Will end up getting the update anyways since this PS3 is never going to see the wonders of CFW.
