You should be okay if you don't format it, I just deleted all my games on my hdd and all the unofficial games and programs on my ps3 and I have not had any trouble and have got 1 of my 2 frree ps3 games already.
I think im gonna go legit too
theres not much going on in hacking new firmwares and I want to be able to play uncharted 3 when it comes out (and also the incentive of free psn games going on right now...)
That's what I decided too. Maybe by the end of the year I'll have a reason to go back to CFW, but as the scene is now, CFW isn't worth giving up online for imo and it's most likely that U3 is going to be unplayable on cfw just like Portal 2.
After messing around with my PS3, i noticed i got tired of all the stuff on it, i have around 30 legit games and around 10 i downloaded to try, i noticed that there was not 1 game i played more then 2 hours and today i was sitting there, like, what the f**k all those games and i don't know what to do, this suxs, i have a pc to use emulators, i have my wii to use emulators, why do i need it on my ps3 anyway, so i decided to remove all the stuff and update to the newest OFW
and for the 3 hours i play on my ps3 in a month, i better stick to ofw anyway.
