September 6, 2010 // 10:19 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 Firmware Update 3.42 is Now Available, Details Incoming

Yup. Sony somehow blocked 3.15 from working I guess. I can't get anything working with 3.15.

If we bypass the update, via this hack, we could stay on 3.41 and STILL play online? Plus, we could play backup games offline?

Just want to make sure I understand.

Put it in the same directory as LG5Tool, no need to register the component with regsvr32

Awesome, it booted that time. Much appreciated. Backing up a game right now so I'll have to wait till it done and reboot the PS3 so I'm not caught in Jailbreak mode lol.
