Staying on 3.66 hoping for cfw
Like title says, I've decided to not upgrade to 3.66. Will anyone else?
Also there is a DNS trick that allows me to still access the PSN on this now-old firmware.
How long can I expect to be able to continue accessing the PSN using the trick? Will Sony be able to disable it without a firmware update? Thankss.
The DNS bypass should work for around 1 week (Maybe 2 weeks if you are lucky)

Staying on 3.66 for nothing, 3.70 is coming out, and if that doesn't have support for the new B.T. headset, then there will be another one shortly after.
There is no reason to not update, there will be no 3.66CFW for a very long time, and by that time? We'll probably be in the 3.7x firmwares, if not 3.8 by then. You may as well just try and purchase another PS3 that you an use CFW on.
Eh, but what do I know, I have been right about everything else; only doubted the first 3.41 hack.
3.70 supposedly has new encryption and new keys so it's possible that a 3.6x CFW could be released even though we're on 3.70. Several people have supposedly cracked 3.60 but were waiting on an OFW with new features before they released it. If 3.70 does have new keys there would be no reason for them to wait for another OFW release with better features since the work couldn't carry over so they may be prompted to just release it (y'know, if they weren't just blowing hot air in the first place).

It now says I'm on the latest firmware using the DNS bypass. Does this always happen when you use the trick?
Yeah I'll wait a bit before updating.
If the system thought there was a newer update, it would not let you onto the PSN.

Does Sony end up updating to PSN itself to counter the trick?
PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon)
Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD,
Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working

2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types
" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)
Someone said that Sony might ban you if you use the DNS bypass, so I stopped using it anyway lol
No they won't. There's no reason for them to ban you with the DNS bypass. Also no one has been banned before for using DNS tricks.
