    My best guess is this update relates to the ps store and how it reacts with both PSP and psvita as well as the PS3 it self and does not change anything with the code regarding other the hacking the software

      If they’re trying to stop PS3 from accessing PSN, only idiots will update. SEN Enabler FTW.

      I think the update is more to update the blu-ray keys so it can play newer discs

    Oh, zero research for patch notes, really? First things first, it “fights” against CFW/HFW/HEN. 2nd one are newer keys for Blu Ray discs (mainly movies).

    I have not been able to get online with my PS3 sistome since night before last and would really like to play with my friends online what is taking so long for it to be updated?

    • spok says:

      well if you are using Hen that was available next day after the update – PS3 is still the best console with biggest game/stream library, MM/ShowTime, etc.

    I need my PS3 updated please let me know what’s going on all i get is please wait-wait for how long?

    • Hell_AleX92 says:

      stop whining and wait or build your own 4.88 CFW.

      otherwise update to 4.88 OFW and buy your games legally ._.
