I can not root now. Do you know the list of IP addresses I should block on the router to prevent updates?

Is there a flashable version of 3.2 available for download anywhere?

It appears that the Sony patch began rolling out yesterday. Thankfully, I rooted my Sony box in time and I am absolutely loving it. This truly is the Google TV we all hoped for when the product was first announced. In fact, I like it so much that I'm interested in getting another Sony GTV for my bedroom. I'm sure that I can pick up one on eBay that is still on a pre-patched version of the firmware. The problem, of course, is if the box is on 3.1 or earlier. According to the root instructions, you must be on 3.2 to do the procedure. I remember when 3.0 first started becoming available there were flashable versions for download for those of us who couldn't wait for the official update to hit our boxes. So the question is: does anyone have a version of 3.2 pre-patched that we can download and flash on a box which hasn't been updated yet?

Thanks -- and thanks so much to the Zenofex and the gtvhacker team for bringing us this incredible root!

I haven't applied the root yet but I'm going to.

I wanted to see what message they would put on this OTA lol.

go into system info & see what version you are on.
I don't think it will update unless you give it the okay to install, so say no when it asks.
If it has been updated than you can not root until they figure out another way around the update.

Don't connect your new box to broadband, go into recovery mode and update right away to 3.2 Exploitable and run the exploit.
