Great, now let's see what's new with this FW.
Thanks for the update.
No problem... for those unaware, the last update (2.80) still showed 2.76 on the updater so that is why it wasn't initially a mandatory update.
Sadly, this one is required to go online with the PS3, PSN, Home, etc:
That "PS3" logo startup is on 3.00 regardless if you have a slim or phat ps3
verified phat ps3s use new "PS3" logo as on slims
Confirmed LIVE, downloading now, thanks.
lol. this is so lame, i was looking forward to this update so much but not i am wondering if their could be a hack for the old firmware at some point. Meh... I'll just update it.
i like the tweaks a LOT =3 cant wait for some dynamic themes!
Hrmm... why would people not use the System Update software to update the bios?
Is there some sort of advantage or patching that I should be aware of before I download and apply this new bios?
can anyone please iterate on the "Custom Remote Play Settings - Manually set a device (such as a PSP system) to be used for remote play" item? how has it changed, what new options do you get?
