Are there any improvements over 2.4 (besides, you know, being able to be installed by everyone.)

Wow, this is a surprise. I wasn't expecting it 'til Wednesday.

They added a step to the installer, no? About turning off the system after update. I don't remember that for the 2.40 one.
I think so.

Sweet. Will update when I get off work. Though, I had no issues with 2.40. Can't hurt though. At least, I hope not. *finds some wood to knock on*

Looks like they went back and changed the foundation of how the update installs. I'm thinking people turned off their consoles or some junk, maybe internet cut outs all that jazz.

The intro screen asks if you want to turn off the unit post install (check box), also, no hitting the PS button to start the update - acceptance was moved to the front of the install.

Thanks! Pretty fast download.

But yeah... out of curiosity, what happens to those that didn't install 2.4 due to the FUD? Don't they still have to dl 2.4 prior to this? (Forgive me if I'm wrong, I never skipped a update so I wouldn't know how that works)

Just a note: the platinum trophy has changed appearance. It looked like a crown before, now it's more in line with the rest of the trophy designs.

I do see a new option when downloading update, it says you can *auto shutdown PS3 after update*
I set it to that to see if it works as advertised. Fingers crossed :p

I think they just optimize the code a bitand relabel the FW. I doubt they have ound out what really cause the problem since its only affect some people. Anyway, wish you all luck, I'll be here at work reading you all found a new hidden feature or remove from the FW. Peace 8)

Oh well, that's enough reason for me to upgrade from 2.4 to 2.41, I guess...

yeah I actually like the way it looks now. I sometimes get this error when viewing peoples profile though (FFFFFF) error has occurred. but that was happening in 2.40 also.

I'm afraid of dl firmware update now. I don't want my PS3 to brick. What will I become without my PS3? :(

Done and played RFOM. No issue so far. Then again, I didn't encounter any problem last time too.

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!

lol, shortly?
