    ps3 Sony releases 3.42 firmware update for PS3

    With the release...I mean announcement of PS Jailbreak and clones and the recent release of the open source PSGroove and ports (i.e. PSFreedom), this was bound to happen. You didnt think Sony would just let run wild on its console right? PS Jailbreak, Jailbreak clones, PSGroove and ports all run on 3.41. However, installing 3.42 will make all USB exploits non-functional as it patches the hole that these Jailbreaks use. So if homebrew is important to you, DO NOT update the firmware. Within a few weeks or even days, there will probably be new exploits. Let the cat and mouse games begin!

    PlayStation Blog:

    It seems the update is mandatory. However, you can bypass it. All you got to do is go into your Network settings, and set the DNS nameservers, to custom/manual and change both of them to:

    File is attached below. How long this method will work is anyone's guess.
