* Playback of PS3 software titles or Blu-ray Disc videos that require PS3 system software version 3.21 or later.
* Playback of copyright-protected videos that are stored on a media server (when DTCP-IP is enabled under Settings).
* Use of new features and improvements that are available on PS3 system software 3.21 or later.
Finally they did it. :Cry:
But look GeoHot's answer
Today the well-known hacker of PS3 GeoHot wrote in his blog that users should not upgrade the PS3 to the 3.21 version when it becomes available Thursday, and will be deactivated operation OtherOS. As an incentive to users not upgrade their consoles promised it will work on a solution such as a PS3 CF.
It said on his blog published:
"A note for those interested in the recovery and preservation of OtherOS. Do not upgrade to 3.21! Once available (Thursday) we will consider a safe way to 3.21 and you had to keep the operation OtherOS, perhaps something like the Hellcat Recovery Flasher. I would add, some people seem to believe that the CFW would allow some kind of piracy. It will not be so. What I would do is create a custom firmware to version 3.21 will not lose the support of OtherOS. Hacking is not get someone that does not pay, but be looking to just get it paid.
And 2nd I want to say is that we are dealing with whether the companies can withdraw their capabilities and features of advertising, ap'tis their consoles. Imagine, for example, was a bug in Safari the iPhone and Apple instead corrected to utter completely. It may be legal, but definitely not good for the company and its products. "
