April 24, 2013 // 8:11 pm - Following up on PS3 Firmware 4.40, today Sony Tweeted news of PS3 System Software update v4.41 with details below.

Download: PS3 Firmware 4.41 Update (US) / PS3 Firmware 4.41 Update (EU)

In a nutshell, PS3 Firmware 4.41 is a minor PlayStation 3 update that will improve system stability. I just got prompted to do a system update. Looks like no online until some PS3 CFW news appears, however, the encryption keys and the passphrase is still the same.

Below is what the Tweet states, to quote: "PS3 software update v4.41 is coming today, it's a minor update that will improve system stability."

As always, more details and an official changelog will be posted once they become available.

Below are some changes from eussNL as well:

I would love to, the few attempts I've made have been a fail, I need a link for a little help guide or something.

On a side note the WiiU got an update today also. Update 3.0. This is the update that supposed to make it faster and a few other little things here and there.

Lucky I have 2 PS3's then, so I'm still showing as online with my OFW one, whilst collecting trophies with my CFW one, and when a spoofer turns up, I'll just sync them to my account.

Heh, too bad I don't get on PSN often enough for them to draw any real conclusions from my login times...

Yeah no need to really worry here. The passphrase is still the same. (Tested from two seperate DEX machines) My "source" tells me the update has something to do system stability with the Vita.... not to mention getting on CFW users nerves.

They want to see who ISN'T or CANNOT login. And then weed you out of the list next time you get online. But if you aren't cheating on Call of Duty or being a arsehole on some other random multiplayer game then you probably can go back to business as usual.

*Same rules as always really.... Don't draw attention to yourself while breaking the law... Snickers

Duh... use multiman and copy it straight out of the folder....
