Netflix on PS3 to go disc-free this month

Netflix on PS3 to go disc-free this month In July, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings made it clear that a disc-free version of Netflix was headed to the PlayStation 3 by the end of the year.
Today, Sony says users will be able to access the content without a disc by the end of the month.

Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein had this to say when asked about a timeframe for the new app: "Its this month, but we dont have a date to announce at present."

It was initially promised before Netflix's quarterly earnings, which is on the 20th, so most believe the update will hit the console on the 19th, which is also when the U.S. PlayStation Store updates.

Hastings also said the update will bring about a new UI.

Does anyone know how to run the Netflix app without having to update to 3.42? I got the app to download using a workaround, but it prompts me to update to 3.42 when I try to run it and I don't want to lose my jailbreak capabilities. Anyone know something I don't about this? I've been searching Google for patch methods and the like but have found nothing.
