    I bought my PS3 slim 2 weeks ago. And it came in firmware 3.40 I think. Well I decided not to hack my system and just updated to 3.70 for online. But today I heard out that it was possible for me to dual-boot 3.50CFW and 3.70 OFW. Is this true? And if so can you get banned if you did that?

    I never seen anything that mentioned this before, but it could be real. But like me, I'm now on 3.70 and want to hack my system. (Before I updated, I was on 3.55)
    Hold on I just seen the picture and article for it.

    Oh wow even if I didn't update the only way to dual-boot is with that thing.

    Does this require you to open the console and soldier stuff? I have the PS3 Slim if it matters.

    So for Slim how do you make this thing work? Does the device plug in to the USB or something?

    I was under the impression cracking it open and soldering was required period.

    Yes to#1, to #2 (if you have a slim):

    Yes, it was dumb. If I didn't have a 60GB, I would already have this thing installed and dual booting. I really wish I could buy new games and PSN games (including Singstar content) without losing my CFW. I'll eventually get a slim and my current console will be used for PS2 games and held in reserve for when the PS3 eventually gets blown wide open and when I do, I'll be getting this device (if the scene still hasn't progressed by then).

    You aren't really missing anything from CFW other than free games.
