NEVER a wise idea to update PlayStation Firmware in order to make use of such things as PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW), downgrading, homebrew, Webkit exploits, etc today Sony pushed a PS3 System Software 4.84 Firmware Update live and developer @esc0rtd3w reported on Twitter that despite emulators being updated it appears there are no 4.84 Webkit patches and the PS3 StoreHaxx still works on 4.84 OFW for those who still own a PlayStation 3 console.
This follows Sony's previous PS3 Firmware 4.83 update from last October for those keeping track of PS3 OFW revisions in the PlayStation 3 scene.

Like usual, there currently is no official changelog at the moment and if anyone tests out PS3 version spoofers for PSN online access and to help avoid bans let us know if they're working or give THIS tutorial a try... although historically PSN works for a brief period (a week or so) after each PS3 Firmware update goes live.
As always, we'll revise this article when Sony updates their page with the official PS3 System Software Update 4.84 changelog alongside additional confirmation from PS3 scene developers on this latest PlayStation 3 4.84 Firmware version update.
