PS3 Update 4.87 Patch Notes:
Those who want to download the update via USB, you can do so here.
Unfortunately, all the update does based from the update history is that “This update improves system performance” and that’s it. However, comments from the homebrewing community mentions how this is another patch to patch out exploits for jailbreaking the PS3.
That’s pretty much it. If you still use your PS3 to game or as a media center, just know that there is a new patch.
