Should be a simple question. Currently running 3.41 with PS3Break for jailbreaking. And to be honest, getting more interested in making the jump to custom firmware. But I do have some questions, if I may... since I didn't see a particular topic asking about these in detail up top. Yes, it's a CECHA, which is why I'm still cautious. Not like I could just get another one. [*]Is it possible to update from a standard 3.41 to say... kmeaw's 3.55? That is... I put kmeaw's 3.55 (pre-patched or made) on a flash drive, plug it in, and have it run the system update from that. Will that work?[*]While I currently have the consoles on a UPS, the question must arise... in the event of a failed flash, what do you do? Recovery mode? Downgrade (at least my dongle is compatible for downgrade mode firmware on it) ? Send to $ony? [*]Anything I should look for as a sign or error that something didn't go right?[*]Should I uninstall the homebrew before updating? No doubt it will also be prudent to make another full backup.[*]Any lists out there of what stopped working since 3.50? Or at least, what USB devices have the same dongle ID as what was revoked as a result of 3.50? And do either CFW's address or change the revocation list to allow these devices to work again? Supposedly from what fail0verflow discussed, this should be possible now.Why do I want to update? well... One of my roomies does play online and stuff, and regularly gets ps3 games. I've already asked, and he's cool with me borrowing and playing those he isn't actively playing. But many of them seem to require at least 3.5 for me to play at all. Currently, MGS4 is unplayable even when running normally and from the disc. Not sure what all happened, but it also appears that in order to patch the ripped version of it properly, it needs the newest version of GaiaManager, of which IIRC only works on 3.55CFW. Even though in the eyes of $ony I may be a "filthy pirate" I do like to at least be able to use the storefront to download demos and stuff, and sync my earned trophies. I fully agree that online cheaters need to be put in their place, but I also think they're going about it the wrong way. and find it stupid I can't even use the storefront portion without accepting an update.
