If you haven’t noticed yet, Sony has updated to the latest firmware which is 3.42 version. So, anyone who had PS3 console running the PSGroove, please do not update yet as PSGroove does not support this version. I bet Sony will include a patch to combat PSGroove and your USB port is not even working! Well, i just hope there is a custom firmware around after this.
For those Who wish to update to 3.41 only using a USB stick, here is a guide by Irvysan

This will save you a LOT of time doing it on the PS3 :
Just create a folder called PS3 on your USB stick, then in that create one called UPDATE copy the file there so that the file path looks like:
PS3 > UPDATE > [Update File] (PS3UPDAT.PUP)
Plug in your USB stick!
Then when you go to update, just choose that you want to update from a media stick or whatever it says.
