    I turned on my television (Sony NSX 40GT1) to find an update, just curious as to what it added.

    It blocks the hack that allowed you to get root access. With root access you could of streamed blocked sites such as Hulu. Sony would of opened themselves up to a legal can of worms if they hadn't of blocked the hack....

    It can't be just that. The update was 280mb. Anyway, the biggest difference I've noticed is bringing up Chrome is a lot faster, as is starting the tv up.

    Yehp, I believe it is mainly that, a move to block the exploit. It sounds like you are unsure because of the file size. I believe the size of the update can be attributed to it including basically a patched version of the previous OS (System Software v3.2). It is possible that there could be some speed-related side effects, but Sony seems to have listed the update squarely and solely as a security update.
