I use my PS3 as a media player so it needs to stay connected to my network. In light of the new jailbreak, I'm also concerned that Sony might force a firmware update and not prompt us first, as the new TOS agreement allows.
Is there a way to block all firmware updates through DNS trickery or something like that? I don't necessarily care about the Playstation Network or online play. I would still like to get game updates.
I set up a DNS proxy with a firmware fetch redirect to my local web server to stay on 3.15 until Sony fixed that. On 3.15 though, I noticed with the proxy I couldn't connect to the PlayStation Network. However, now when I use the proxy with 3.41 I still connect just fine to the Playstation Network. This makes me wonder if Sony has changed the firmware check mechanics since 3.15
Thanks for any suggestions.
