Why do you want to jailbreak your PS3 or a new one anyway?

3.41 has been done. Its a matter of time before someone finds an exploit with firmware 3.42 and above.
Wow you made the wrong choice. I kept my current ps3 on 3.41 and will be buying a new one around or before christmas. I have watched the console modding scene too often to even try to update once a crack has been found dont update past that magic point. My Wii was sitting on a lower firmware until waninkoko released his oh so wonderful patched firmware updater. I havent played online for almost a month now due to the simple fact that I want to keep my PS3 hacked. My buddy just bought a new PS3 brought it over and we found that it had 3.40 on it. We simply updated it to 3.41b and that was that. He wont update it unless there is a custom firmware out to bypass the lockout of the psjailbreak. Modding isnt for everyone. When it first starts out it is always slow. Its like a space shuttle. It takes a ton of force to get that heavy son-of-a-bitch off the ground but once it takes flight its gone. Get a second ps3 keep it in the closet until you really want to jail break it otherwise the new ones will come out and will be unhackable and you will be crying like a baby later.
Why do you think this? The hole that the jb used isn't there anymore.

i agree with some of you that said 3.42+ firmwares will never be hacked, just like 73xx+ firmwares on 360. but the there is a good chance that hackers will be able to patch 3.42+ firmwares to add the code that allow the JB to run, i.e. CFWs. so this means that 3.50 wont be broken, but 3.41 can be modified with the extras on 3.50 to be called 3.50cfw. this is bad news and demonstration of poor patience for those that want JB and still updated past 3.41 and hoping for 3.42+ FWs to be hacked as well. chances are nothing past 3.41 will ever be hacked.
i think people will eventually figure out how to decrypt the firmware package on ps3 in controlled manner, as they did on psp. from there, it's a matter of decrypting individual files and looking for exploits there - there always are some security holes. easier or harder to find.

at this point sony is way ahead of us. most firmware functions are unknown or untested, and there is no 100% safe way of unbricking the console if something goes wrong.
and we can be certain that every exploit will be patched in days time, and analysis of new firmware will take a while, once proper tools are developed and tested.
As long as the scene doesn' slow die out like the psp scene did. Then it shouldn't be that difficult to keep up with Sony. Right now they have access to their OS and files. All they need is a way to decrypt files and they're set.
I have a feeling a year from now, people will be on their jailbroken 3.80. It needs time don't expect much in the next few months.
