PS3 Firmware - New Update Will Prevent Other OS and Linux

Breaking News! It appears that a new firmware update is to be released on 1st April 2010 by Sony (and this is not an April's Fool Joke) which will disable certain features on the older 'Fat' Style PS3 Consoles.

People need to be careful and fully aware of the changes this will make to their PS3 console.

system date error. Please check NDS system date

Just change the date before 14 april 2010 and it wil work.
Since yesterday there is a new firmare update available.
See the message below from the manufacturer.

Due to the fault of our R4 team,except R4(I) SDHC V2.0,all the kernels can not work normally base on the date after 14th, April, 2010. The issues are the system date error and when you booting up the consoles, you couldn't enter into the main manu. We are awfully sorry for this. The temporary solution is to adjust your system date before 14th, April, 2010. R4 team will remedy this bug with the latest kernel and do the activity to reward the consumers! The latest information for this activity will be released at www.r4isdhc.com and www.nds9.com. Please pay more attention to this!
