well the one upside i see currently is that if your jailbreak is currently unusable because youve updated to 3.42 (as i foolishly did) you might as well update to 3.5 and have the added 3d support when a new jailbreak comes out they'll no doubt cover 3.5 as well as 3.42.
If it doesn't allow 3d on non 3d tvs it doesnt matter to me.
I guess it would be too much to hope that Sony forgot the JB patch in this one?
This is one update I will miss (I have an awesome 3D tv WAITING for this xD). Btw, where's the psn update? I want my Enslaved demo.
i care not for 3d would be funny if the jailbreak just happens to work on this one.
I just bought my PS3 last Thursday, a new slim 160GB model that came with 3.40 (just in time to apply JB )
Did anyone confirmed that JB works with previous FW? Do you guys recommend me to update (from USB) to 3.41?
I'm still need a clone JB or Teensy board... Thank you!
I'm trying to get the 3d disc on my ps3... so help me out someone
Here's to hoping the scene was waiting for 3.50 and 3d movie playback before releasing a new version of the hack.
