PS3 Firmware 4.20 Released - It Might Block PSN CFW access!
Last night, Sony started rolling out the new v4.20 firmware, which adds support for their new wireless headsets, and adds some 'save file' features for Playstation Plus members, but sadly for those running CFW v3.55 using either 'F*ckPSN' or 'Team Rebug' release, there is mixed reports of being blocked, so maybe Sony did some other background internal changes, we will update this news post once more info is found out!
From the v4.20 Update information:
You can now copy and delete multiple save data items at one time. For Playstation Plus members, you can now upload and download multiple save data items to or from the online storage at one time.
In the "System Auto-Off" setting, where the PS3 system can be set to turn off automatically, the setting method has been changed to meet user needs. Check the setting options in [Settings] > [Power Save Settings].
From the EU Playstation Blog:
Tomorrow we will be releasing a new system software update (v4.20) for PlayStation 3 which will include a few minor updates in order to strengthen functionality and improve your overall experience.
Firstly, we have revised specifications for the power-save mode in compliance with SCEE regulations. This means that the system will now, as default, be set to automatically turn off after 1 hour of no use.
These settings can, however, be manually adjusted via ‘System Auto-Off’ in the Settings on the XMB.
Also, as mentioned in our previous blog post, system software update (v4.10) added a feature that enabled you to hear your own voice through the “Wireless Stereo Headset” when playing multiplayer modes. This type of audio feedback is known as “sidetone”. Based on your comments, system software update (v4.20) will improve “sidetone” audio performance by giving you the option to select one out of five levels for microphone audio or give you the option to turn this feature off completely.
For those of you who use the “Wireless Stereo Headset “to watch Blu-ray or DVD movies on your PS3 system, this system software update will also enable virtual surround sound functionality giving you a superior audio experience.
We have also improved saved data management. You will now be able to select multiple saved data items and delete them or copy them as a group.
Additional details will be available here tomorrow once the system software update is live
It is amazing PSN for CFW has lasted 28 days so far, but it could be Sony has decided to block it, but we need more reports from users to know for sure, plus 'Team Rebug' is doing some tests also so we will update this news post once we have more solid info.
Yes, I was told that it works fine because that mean , Sony did not fix the authentication process which those people like you are using. The passpharse is not changed. Credit goes to romaan. I wont test it because I dont care about PSN.
