    ps3 firmware question

    not sure if this is allowed, so please remove if so, im not interested in piracy just homebrew code

    my ps3 needs a firmware update to 3.56 i think , as i imagine theyve updated something over the last week or so due to all the signing codes getting out, i want to play it online but was wondering if anyone knew if this update closes the loopholes in the system, as id sooner wait to see if anything develops as id love to get some emulators and linux rolling on it at some point if possible cheers

    Yes, updating to 3.56 closes the ability to do anything with ps3. As they have changed the keys used which as of now arent out.

    As of right now there is no way to downgrade from 3.56 either

    nobody probably knows but is a downgrade likely to ever appear?

    Not until the lawsuit with Sony is over. Until then people are scared of lawsuits against them for releasing anything

    so what exactly does this update, stops you from doing?

    sorry dont know much

    thats going to take ages im guessing?

    I have got my ps3 running on 3.55 custom firmware,and at the minute I can still play online from changing some dns settings that stops the ps3 from asking for an update

    is it possible to play online on 3.55 without a custom firmware?

    The DNS bypass has now stopped working. To go online you need to update to 3.56 or use xlink kai which has limited amount of users, and only available for certain games

    It was using the DNS trick which was available. But sony has stopped this now, and now requires everyone to update to access PSN

    One of the things is changing the hard drive from what I'm led to believe. Diabolical ,if it's true .
    I'm not putting mine on the net again .

    thanks ricko
