PS3 Firmware 3.56 Is A Security Update

by Mike Bendel January 26, 2011 @ 7:37 pm

Sony has quietly released PS3 firmware 3.56, a minor update that adds a “security patch.” Vagueness aside, there’s little doubt this comes in response to the recent wave of PS3 hacking efforts which have resulted in several custom firmware variants.

Suffice to say, those who value homebrew access are advised not to update at this time. It likely won’t be long before modified 3.56 PUPs hit the scene, though, given that developers have already succeeded in extracting LV1 and LV2 keys from the firmware libraries.

As usual, the firmware can be downloaded from Network Update or manually via our download section below.
