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

Pretty sure it doesn't work like that

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

Windows Vista Home.

I want to ask again in case nobody saw it. If you purchase a separate INTERNAL HDD for the PS3, couldn't you technically pull the HDD out, put the other in, use that for offline without updating PSN and put the other back in to run online with the updated PSN? Or does it not install to the HDD?

Why did this turn into a proxy thread? Seems all the firmware update threads end up like that.

Reboot your router. That might work.

I had been looking up how to connect to PSN through 3.15 for months now, but everybody still assued me that currently there was no bypass available, so imagine my surprise when everybody is telling me that PSN Download Manager and LG5Tool still worked.

I have tried both the LG5Tool and the PSN Download Manager, I am still unable to get my PS3 online despite following the guides. I know the proxy in both tools is working as I can see my PS3 attempting to connect through it, and in the case of PSN Download Manager the 3.42 update as well as some random files were downloaded, but my PS3 still insists there is a required update and I cannot connect to PSN.
