Firmware 2.41 is live

Tuesday, 8th July 2008 08:38 GMT By Mike

The PlayStation Blog is reporting that firmware 2.41 is now live. Sony’s Eric Lempel:

“Hi, everyone. As many of you know, we released PS3 firmware update v2.40 last week, but had to take it offline temporarily because, for a limited number of users, the XMB wouldn’t display after the update was installed. We’ve been able to fix the problem, and I’m happy to report that firmware update v2.41 will be released shortly.

We want to extend our apologies to the PlayStation community for any inconvenience. Now we’ll be looking forward to seeing everyone online and racking up those trophies!”

We’re grabbing it now. Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

    Does anyone whether you have to download older versions first before you can download the newest if you haven’t downloaded any updates for while?
    I haven’t downloaded a update since 2.1 and really don’t want to leave the console running for 24 hours…

    I reckon you should just be able to download the latest one, but I’m not certain at all.

    New firmware is a replacement, not a patch. You can just jump straight to the latest one.

    Oh that’s good. Saves me a good few hours.
    Thanks very much.

    Works like a charm, just like 2.40 has done for the last few days. :)
