September 6, 2010 // 8:19 pm - Update: Several users who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.42 have now confirmed (along with Sony directly) that Sony has indeed added 'additional security features' and patched the PS3 exploit used for PS JailBreak, PSGroove and PSFreedom as expected so it is advised you do NOT update if you plan to use them.

For those who just signed in to PlayStation Network, PS3 Firmware update 3.42 is now available to download.

Download: PS3 Firmware 3.42 Update (US) / PS3 Firmware 3.42 Update (EU)

While we can speculate on whether Sony blocked PS JailBreak with it, etc feel free to grab it below and report in the comments any changes you notice and we will update the news accordingly.

PS3 No Update is completely coded in Java. So it WILL work in your Mac.

sell your ps3 on ebay, buy a new one from the store, you might end up losing 20-50 but its worth it in my opinion.

Prepare to shell out some extra cash for a PS3 with < 3.41 Firmware, and/or pray that Sony didn't just patch up one of the most convenient exploits yet.

Lol a friend. Well buddy I'd say you are pretty much out of luck at the moment. Wait for an update from someone to allow it to work on 3.42. I'm sure it won't be that long.

We discussed the log issue in the Ban Wave thread:

Again, the firmware isn't on the Hard drive! You can't change your firmware by swapping hard drives. Therefore the solution you propose is impossible.

Hope that clear things up.

To install game updates, disable your bypass tool (whatever you use), change your internet settings back to original (so disable the proxy from your internet settings on your PS3), DO NOT try to sign into PSN, load up the game you want to update, update it (it will work fine as you aren't using a proxy anymore), once update is complete, quit game, re-enable proxy settings on PS3, start up proxy again on PS3, sign back into PSN, play!

Thanks Wonderkik, but i'm following the Jailbreak scene and I cant really find an answer...maybe i need glasses

What "they" saying is the backup manager leaves some kind of log that online $sony can find if your console is jailbroken or not.

The issue is... imagine... (its a little bit work but...) One harddrive with original firm with $ony updates so they dont blacklist the console, and for online / original proposes only. Other Harddrive with firm 3.41, just for offline use and playing backup games.

The issue is...I really want to try the PSJ but i don't want to blacklist my console

Sory if is confused...
