PSN Maintenance: New 3.60 Auth System Blocks Access for CFW 3.55

Today, Sony is currently performing "sporadic PSN maintenance", which in the end may cause a devastating result to custom firmware users. Some sites are reporting that Sony has
finally enabled the 3.60 PSN authentication
system. The new auth system was found hiding
in Sony's new 3.60 firmware, which was introduced last week. The new authentication system would mean an end to PSN access for
current custom firmware users. Users with CFW have not been able to get
back onto the Playstation Network since seeing the following message. “We are expecting sporadic PSN maintenance from approx 9am-3pm PST Thursday
03/17/2011. We apologize for the inconvenience.” However, as stated in the message, it appears
maintenance is on going for several more
hours. We ask our users to post their results
when trying to get on the PSN throughout the
day today. We'll keep you posted should
anything develop in this ongoing story.
