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:


If someone who updates their non-Slim PS3 with it can check if the new Bootscreen is now in it that would be appreciated.
