    Okay so I recently got a ps3. It's a 21xx.
    But my questions is, should I go with dual booting OFW and CFW using E3, or just go with an ODE like Cobra, or3k3y?
    I want to be able get online sometimes, but i won't be doing it often, and if i got with dual booting have have an extra hard drive, so I wouldn't have to get one.

    the answer is that ANY cfw (either ODE or dual booting) is not ban proof even if you dual boot traces of the cfw still linger on the ps3 when in ofw mode sony can detect dual booters and still ban them golden rule never go on SEN/PSN with a hacked ps3 or risk being whacked by the all mighty Ban Hammer

    I know it is possible to be banned no matter what, but i'm still wondering what the better method would be. I mean either way, even if i do get banned, i want to know which would be better to use in the long run.
    Like, more features, better support, ect.

    CFW is CFW, and ODE is ODE. They are completely different thing.

    ODE is more simpler, provided you are on OFW and are playing copies ripped by ODE.

    I'd say Downgrade with E3 to 3.55 and install the current version CFW you like mainly ODE'S (PS3 wise) are to get pira......i mean homebrew on non downgradable (3x/4x and later released 2x's) ps3

    I know they are different. that's why I am asking which would be recommended. Because personally, it seems like going with CFW would be better, but i want more than my own opinion.

    Bahaha, Yeah, Homebrew, and 'Back-ups'.

    So going with an E3 Flasher would probably be the better choice, no?

    If you don't want to get banned online, ODE w/ OFW gives you the highest chance of staying unbanned.

    If you want homebrew, OtherOS, HDCP disabled, etc, CFW all the way.

    Well what about the how dual booting thing?
    Yes i know there is still the chance of being banned, but shouldn't it be lower?

    Dual boot should also work but it is more of a hassel.

    I'm using CFW and I'm not banned. I'd only go online for PSN and disconnect when I'm playing games. I also don't use reactPSN to mess with my PSN.

    I know it's more of a hassle, but form what i have seen, using E3 limited, it isn't too bad.
    And That about what I would be doing, but i want the dual boot, because there is sometimes that i would want to play online with friends, hence the dual boot. So i can go back to OFW when i do.

    Dual boot once set up is pretty simple. Just a flip of a switch and swap hdd's.

    I personally like it for going online, or having CFW

    I don't have an ode, and only know about it from reading up on it, so can't really comment on that.

    Cobra ODE 4.30 has solderless installation on CECH21xx , it's pretty easy to install it yourself , you don't even to touch the motherboard , and no soldering required ( the ODE must be 4.30 version , not 4.20 or 5.10 )
    E3 Flasher can be a little tricky to work with , i dont recommend using it yourself if you never opened a PS3 before . And even if it's used by an experienced modder your lack of experience could make you update to a newer firmware and delete the CFW

    So i recommend ODE for the ease of installation and the fact that it's not disabled by future system updates

    Personally I would go with E3 I love my cfw I can do whatever I please with my ps3 now :)

    I have Rogero 4.55 and everything is smooth it has online access but I bought another ps3 for online use I got 120gb slim for 60 bucks at a pawn shop. They are usually $100 bucks here where I live. It had a missing controller which I already had lol
