Thank you sony, I sick of my 360 owning friends throwng this in my face. I dont need homebrew to enjoy my PS3.
It goes to show that Sony is committed to the console and keeping it a viable machine for software developers who dont want to worry of piracy. I also have to things to say on this whole affair.
It was never a righteous hack anywayz, it was always a software exploit. and 2. Being only a software exploit did anyone ever think that it would be any length of time before sony patched this, and how many looser bought a jailbreak at 170? I cant stop laughing at the moment, but you only have silly selfs to blame.

So all in all I am with Sony in whatever endevour they chose to make the my PS3 unhackable, just wish they could do the same with the PSP.

Does anyone think that Microsoft and Nintendo dont do enough to combat piracy?

Don’t worry in a few posts someone will rebut your X-Play argument with “teh bias”.

Isn’t it funny how Sony sure can jump on it and get a patch out to prevent the use of jailbreak but it takes them YEARS “looking at” how to implement cross game chat?

Yet another pointless waste of time PS3 update. If only PS3 was like Xbox when it got updates it actually did something good and added new stuff.

Chuckbait said:

September 7th, 8:16 am

Is this update required?

Orbilator said:

September 7th, 8:18 am

chuckbait, its mandatory.

Big LOL for those people saying ” thanks Sony for keep the jailbreak away” LOL.

LOOk at your very own Ipod, It’s already Jailbreaked! LOL.

hey are you guys going to update the system update page because I cant download the new update 3.42 by the internet because I keep getting the DNS error so am I going to be able to update via storage media soon.

UNIT-TRB said:

I am total cool with patches to thwart hackers. The psp should be enough of a playground for them. As for Linux…it runs on anything, stop using the excuse and put it on your old box that is collecting dust.

I have an 60GB, unhacked, not jailbroken phat PS3…I’ll wait until i know this update won’t brick my system.

LeonBlade said:

September 7th, 8:29 am

Well, good thing I didn’t spend money on making my own jailbreak dongle, now huh?
Sony, I like that you’re trying to keep the pirates at bay and away from the PS3, and more power to you. But me personally, I wanted to jailbreak for a chance to develop on the PS3 with homebrew.

Release something like XNA for the PS3 for free and I will love you for life.
And I wont even care about jailbreaking anymore, I just want to develop for your console!

Oh well, hopefully someday? Maybe this is the spark that starts the fire to a SDK for the PS3.

Dear Sony:

You are really FAST to address the stuff you CARE about, but how about the stuff people post in this blog.share you created?



September 7th, 8:30 am

See? jailbreaking had nothing to do with Linux, so give it back to us, and also give us PS2 backwards compatibility

xSALEMx said:

September 7th, 8:31 am

@post 193, most people didnt even pay for it anyway and now theyve modded their consoles they’ll just refuse to update,its not like theres any ps3 exclusives on the horizon worth updating for and psn is a joke, if i want to play online i’ll use my 360.


September 7th, 8:33 am

September 7th, 8:41 am

I went to share with an idea I posted it twice. yesterday and today. I do not see it there(reason for my second post). Idea~~ Legacy of Kain : Blood Omen Re~make for the PS3. Are there any Kain fans currently online to support my idea?

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

September 7th, 8:47 am

@MarinoBrea +1 ;)

Please sony i really need to download your 3.42 firmware for my USB key, i changed my hard drive and now i cant install Anything!!!

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

September 7th, 8:49 am

btw european server already released 3.42 firmware…

Luis_rules_1st said:

September 7th, 8:52 am

Yeah! New update.
I’ll update & see the changes.

Oh, wait, there R NO changes. Not even 1 that we should care about.

Come on. This is crap!

1.- Most of us know what this update is for.
2.- Looks like we didn’t loose anything this time, but next time, what R we gonna lose? We already lost Other OS. What’s next? USB support?
3.- From all the things posted, U give us nothing. Only a crappy update that works for nothing.

Thanks for nothing.

BettyBlueGT said:

If only updates that mattered were pushed out like this.. Instead we get a security update and a suggested things to buy in PS store..

Rene_Led said:

September 7th, 9:07 am

Hackers are now gonna have to make a Jaaiiilbreak-AC/DC from new security ;)

Zezzler said:

September 7th, 9:08 am

Hopefully my automatic updates has already downloaded and installed this firmware :D

xSALEMx said:

September 7th, 9:15 am

or just not update

Sarno1605 said:

September 7th, 9:16 am

Sony you do realize that they have already figured out how to not download this “mandatory” update. Nice try but hackers will ALWAYS find a way around it. Theirs a video already showing how to be able to sign in and still use PSN without downloading this “Mandatory” update. Once again Nice try. ;D

xSALEMx said:

September 7th, 9:16 am

whats the big worry??? you all scared that your ps3’s might accidentally get hacked and be able to run unsigned code?

Baby_Crimes said:

September 7th, 9:16 am

@Wonder if there will be an update for my PS3 to be capable of reading 3D movies later on…. doubt it though. It’s wierd how it can read 3D games :)

Sarno1605 said:

September 7th, 9:18 am

CyberfreakISO…..put old hard drive in and download update. then put in the new one and it should work. i got that same message before and that worked for me hope this helps.

bone_crusher504 said:

September 7th, 9:24 am

we neeed an update that enables us to listen to music while play
ing any game!!!

NoisyNieghbor said:

September 7th, 9:30 am

Instead of fighting a war they can’t win, Sony should make the same features that ‘PSJailbreak’ can do so people WANT to update and don’t hack their PS3.

– Make an option to install full games on the hard drive OFFICIALLY. 360 can do this, no?

– Give back PS2 emulation for those complaining, but still release HD Collections for the buyers.

If Sony removes any features like how they removed Linux because of hackers, people will just support the hackers even more.

maybe when your company fixes Install failure at 14% (code 80029564) bug then it might be possible download the new firmware update, infact when you get around to fixing the bug, i might even get to download demos and stuff off the psn

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

September 7th, 9:39 am

hanks for your help!
but i cant re-download it
i already upgraded to 3.42 before upgrading my hard drive
everythin is fine when i put back my old hard drive but i really cant put my new hard drive
i even try the link on for 3.42 and it keep saying that it need 3.42 to continue

SkyNet003 said:

September 7th, 9:42 am

I’ll update as soon as i see that this is not breaking other people’s systems.

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

September 7th, 9:46 am

i updated my 2 FAT PS3 and absolutly no problem happen

titoboy666 said:

September 7th, 9:53 am

Sony FTW! Hope the fight against piracy won’t take all your development time and prevent you from adding new features to the system!

Dj_TuCeN said:

September 7th, 9:53 am

its sad how every1 fights over something so stupid =.= homebrew isn’t bad.. to a certain point which also seems to pass that point

there’s a lot of cons and pros using homebrew more pros then cons seriously search and read before you start writing nonsense

its good that sonys protecting the system by limiting our ability of freedom? come on now how stupid does that even sound its like if i was a slave ill be happy? now wtf are you smoking yes its ok i see were sony is going they are trying to get there cash etc. also trying to keep it fair for every1 we understand but please if your going to call it a update do not even say its a update that’s just garbage 2 updates already for things that our so stupid

OtherOS: just cause of geohot

PsJailbreaking: homebrew


Lucky13X said:

September 7th, 9:58 am

And yet, we still can’t have Other OS back. A bit lame if you ask me.

Gitsy365 said:

Fair play to Sony for making life hard for jailbreakers. Let’s not forget the honest people to while you’re doing that. Any chance in updating the browser as it’s God damned awful?
