This got announced at the beginning of January and since the updates came alive today i was thinking to post it. :)

So far we know from sources it has nothing big to do within the PS3 scene as we can see its only a small update for Facebook support on it.

Still Devs aren't sure if any future exploit got patched on the CPU but we're about to find out soon!

People who read this and has more info about.. feel free to comment and will give this an update! ;)

** I will update the OFW list to 4.78 a.s.a.p.

From Wololo on PS Vita Update 3.57, to quote: "The new Firmware 3.57 is mandatory firmware update, which is required for using Sony’s online services, such as the PSN Store and the Chat.

This new version does not only remove the Facebook support from the PlayStation Vita, but also fixes various amounts of exploits!

The first thing that has been patched is the PSPemulator kernel mode exploit, which is required to successfully use an eCFW, such as ARK or TN-V. No kxploit, no eCFW.

Another thing that seems to be fixed is the Custom Bubble Method provided by our good friends Major Tom and Mr.gas, which provided us with fully customizeable Custom Bubbles for devices running firmware 3.55 or below.

It took Sony 4 months to remove the Facebook support, improve the system stability, and fix not only one of the Custom Bubble methods, but also the PSPemulator kernel mode exploit.

Be sure to use the most recent version of QCMA – an alternative CMA for your Computer – which enables you to transfer content without being forced to update to the newest System Software."

If this is done in 2 parts sounds like its patching over Linux then the man update goes overtop to avoid any kind of emu running thro the HV
