PS3 Firmware v3.56 Released, Blocks Custom Jailbroken Firmware

It’s been a busy day for Sony so far, what with them launching a new handheld console today already. Now they’ve also released a software update for their PlayStation 3 bringing the version number up to 3.56.

Described as a ‘minor update’, the new update adds a security patch while also blocking 3rd party firmwares from being used.

Sony’s PS3 console has become the jailbreaker’s latest target recently and Sony isn’t taking it laying down.

Clearly Sony is going down the technology route to stop jailbreaking as well as the legal route.
