    Has anyone got any good reasons to update my ps3 to 1.7? baring in mind the whole homebrew arguement! i think it sucks that you cant even surf the net or play online until you update to 1.7 when i was doing it perfectly fine with 1.6... its such a ass-clownish way to get people to update.

    so any good reasons to do it?

    I would recommend looking for methods to bypass the ps3 update, I would personally recommend the one using a program called ettercap(I could never get the simpledns method to work). Go over to somewhere like ps3news.com for a guide.
    Although 1.7 does have greater PS1/PS2 game support if your non-USA/Japan, and it also has support for downloaded PS1 games downloaded from STORE but they still arent there yet.

    Thanks andrew! i went there and couldnt find a program by that name? could you advise. also with the bypass method can you still go online anyway, visit the store and play online games? i assume you can. iam a total noob to this tho.

    I dont like ps3news.com as they have a huge amount of ads on their site which probably make them ALOT of money. But heres the method I used:
    This is if you have an active internet connection on your PC AND a way to network your PS3 to PC at the same time. It will allow you to do everything an updated console can do, online games, store, everything.

    Heck I even used it to get online with a dialup connection just to get my free copy of Casino Royale.

    Nice one Andrew, i think i will do this untill i know for sure that updating to 1.7 wont hinder any homebrew activities i may wish to get into. i cant belive you got online with a dial up connection on a ps3 lol genius! i wanted to get casino royale aswell but i had already registered my ps3 before. wish i had waited now.
