I got a system update and now my PS3 helpfully reminds me to consult the manual when it boots. Is there an option somewhere to turn that back off?

Edit: In my impatience I had not noticed that the warning goes away automatically even if you don't hit X so this warning is not as annoying as I originally thought.

No, I don't think there's a way to turn it off. It came with the latest PS3 update, 4.0, which supports the PS Vita.

On retail units you cannot deactivate it and it's not going to be deactivatable with any firmware update.
