PS3 Jailbreak (CFW 3.72/3.73) is now available to download

Latest PS3 Custom Firmware 3.72 (CFW) aka PS3 Jailbreak 3.72 is now available to
download

UPDATE: OFW 3.73 has been released but is non-mandatory CFW 3.72 will install over the top and revert you to 3.72 if you updated.

UPDATE2:  Playstation base OFW is now 4.00 for PSN access

While Sony taking the firmware version number up from 3.72 to now 4.00 you would be forgiven for thinking there would be a leap in obvious functionality.  However most of the changes in the firmware update are under the bonnet and not straight away obvious to the casual user.

The most notable additions with this firmware are in readyness to allow you faithful Sony users to connect your new PS Vita handhelds to the console.  Making the PS3 more of a media hub in some ways.  How usefull this is remains to be seen as the PS Vita is not released out side of Japan until the end of the year…maybe longer given the past experiences of delayed ROW launches.

As for other features these are limited to some small PSN+ changes and tweaks but being a CFW user most would not be interested in these.

No security patches have been mentioned in this list but be sure that this no doubt means a new key set leaving any CFW lower than 4.xx unable to access PSN.

Hopefully it wont take too long. Will update as news comes in.
