    NOTE: THIS DOES NOT LET YOU INSTALL CFW/DOWNGRADE ON SUPER SLIMS OR PS3s THAT ARE UNABLE TO DO SO. THIS INCLUDES PS3s ABOVE 3.55!

    A developer that goes by the name Playerkp420 released his Dualboot 4.81 firmware for PS3 on CFW. Originally dualboots could be done by buying a esata station and e3 flasher, but that is expensive and you could risk breaking your console. Now the question most will be asking is. Can I access PSN Store and play online safely? and the answer is YES!. As long as the OFW and CFW are separated by HDD for each then you can play safely. This is a slightly modified OFW that allows you to go back to CFW whenever you choose (CFW 4.81 and above only).

    Thanks for the info! E stata stations are expensive as heck. Luckily I have spare drives to do this. (Sticky this? It's really useful to avoid bans and such)

    You are supposed to have separate hdds. If you use the cfw hdd on db ofw update no homebrew will work. You will just have to install CFW, but by even having homebrew on your OFW side you are at risk of ban. This is 4.81 so as long as 4.82 etc won't come out then no risk.

    Ok. No risk of update the wrong thing, right?
    Still do you need to install owf and cfw again every change of hds? Plus, to play online ofw you will need use your original games or backups?

    If you read the thread, it says this is an OFW. Only difference is it allows you to go back to a CFW anytime. NO HOMEBREW ON OFW. Only when you switch to CFW.

    Yeap. I got it. You will need original games.
    But I advice people to buy another ps3 to play online. Is very cheap now and you will need only switch the console. Saves time.

    No, but in a way it can be. Ban is the only dangerous thing.
