Two days after we revealed DevHook was emulating the 3.01 firmware, Sony has introduced 3.02. As we later discovered, it appears that this firmware doesn't add any security to the system at all. As with all incremental upgrades, this revision simply increases "system security," making it more diffic...

Firmware 3.00 isn't even available on the US website yet, and it looks like there might be a reason for it. 3.01. Gyuh?
