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!

SCEE has just said that it can’t firm up reports that a PS3 Firmware 2.41 release is to be made this week, but fell short of issuing a denial.
“I saw them,” said a rep when asked if Sony was aware of the rumours. “I can’t confirm anything at the moment, though.”
We were also told that it’s unknown as yet when an official statement will be made on the status of Firmware 2.40/1, but PR is waiting to hear back on the matter.
CVG reported this morning that Sony customer service is telling callers that a Firmware 2.41 update if to be issued to PS3 users this week.
The news comes in the wake of the pulling of Firmware 2.40 last week, after numerous users complained of system lock-ups.
