February 8, 2012 // 1:57 am - Today Sony Network Entertainment VP Eric Lempel has announced that the mandatory PS3 System Software Update 4.10 has arrived with details outlined below on their latest PlayStation 3 Firmware, as follows:

Download: PS3 System Software Update 4.10 (US) / PS3 System Software Update 4.10 (EU) / New Web Browser courtesy of ps3hen / PS3 4.10 Core_OS (Extracted)

Hi, everyone. We are releasing a new system software update (v4.10) for PlayStation 3 today that will include a few minor changes that we want to make you all aware of.

First off, once you download the new system software, you will be asked to accept a change to our Terms of Service. In an effort for more unity between PlayStation Network (PSN) and other Sony Entertainment Network services, your "PSN Account" will now be named "Sony Entertainment Network Account."

Please note that this change is one in name only and will not change the PSN that you know and love. You'll still play games online, still have access to the latest downloadable games and add-ons, and still experience a wide variety of movies, sports and music across PSN.

With this system software update (v4.10), we'll also be updating the PS3 Internet Browser with improved display speed.

You can find more details after the firmware goes live here. We look forward to your feedback in the comments below.

Updates: According to, PlayStation 3 Firmware 4.10 now features dropbox support as well.

To quote: "If there’s one thing that many, many PS3 owners have been longing for, it was Dropbox support on their consoles. For those not familiar with the service, Dropbox allows users to upload files from their computers (movies, music, etc.), and then download those files from just about anywhere, and now that “anywhere” includes the PlayStation 3. Dropbox’s main site was previously unusable on the PlayStation 3, but is now fully functional (except for uploads from the PS3 itself, which may cause the system to freeze).

We tested everything from music to movies, all downloaded with no problems at all, and boy were the downloads fast! This is one incredible addition to the PS3 arsenal, and may very well have gone unnoticed by many. With Dropbox offering 2GB free just for signing up, folks will no longer have to worry about portable hard drives and USB thumb drives to move their content to their PS3... how cool is that!?"

The update also mentions improvements to the browser as well as automatic time synchronization with PSN/SEN.

Oh wow, they've changed out the crappy browser for a Webkit based one that actually works. Hurray!

The new features include:

  • The Internet browser has been improved, which optimizes the display of content and increases the accuracy when viewing page layouts. Some sites that previously could not be correctly displayed, including interactive websites, are now supported with the PS3 system software 4.10.
  • Every time your PS3 system to connect to PlayStation Network (PSN) are prepared in the time you can precisely set via the Internet. For this you go into the XMB (XrossMediaBar) on [Settings]> [Date and Time Settings] [Automatic Settings] to.
  • PSN account will be renamed Sony Entertainment Network account. The registration process and the credentials will remain the same.
  • In order to download PS3 system software version 4.10 requires at least 180 MB of free space on the PS3 Hard Disk Drive (System Update) or on removable storage media (PC Update).

Sony PlayStation 3 hacker KaKaRoToKS has also confirmed (!/KaKaRoToKS/status/167468527484284928) that the exploit still is working in PS3 4.10 Firmware. Below are a few Tweets, as follows:

  • Confirmed (by someone in the team) that we can still install the packages in 4.10, but we still can't run apps in 4.0 or 4.10.
  • We don't know if the exploit to run apps in 4.0 (once we find one) would work on 4.10, so my advice: don't update unless you really need to

Finally, in related PS3 homebrew news today cotojestwtf has once again updated his PSN DNS bypass application to Yet Another Bypass 1.3 followed by Yet Another Bypass 1.4 and Yet Another Bypass 1.5 with the changes outlined below:

Yet Another Bypass:

How to use:

here is a link to Kiosk/Shop firmware 4.10 this is intended for that guy who is making 4.00 custom firmware maybe he can extract dev_flash and create install package files on 4.10.. do not install this on a retail console it might just say corrupt firmware or could just brick your system!

this link maybe more useful:

Yeah Dropbox is garbage. Wonder if other cloud storage services are or will be supported...

Seriously... Someone compared 2GB of online storage as a superior replacement for a external Hard Drive?

Since when were external hard drives anywhere near as small as 2GB? This person must be on some crack.

personally I don't care as I don't use the PS3 browser anyway but I've seen heaps of requests for a new PS3 browser so as they finally did it and updated it I guess that is half there, now just someone needs to get it working in CFW.

If the first step is getting the keys then why haven't we already got them? It's been ages now since 3.56 came out so why haven't we got the keys yet?

I don't know if this is how it is done. But to get this on 3.55 CFW wouldn't we have to decrypt the relevant .sprx files and re-encrypt them for 3.55 and then patch the 3.55 vsh.self to use them?

Although what's stopping us doing this, is not having the keys to decrypt them in the first place.
