    I'm looking to get a PS3, and I had a few questions about jailbreaking.
    My current bluray player is on it's last leg, so a large part of why I wanted a PS3 was to play bluray disks. If I jailbreak it, is losing my player imminent, or is there a way I can avoid it? From what I read, it sounds like it's when you downgrade from OFW 3.55 to 3.41 that the PS3 losses it's player. Are the threads I'm reading from outdated? Because it seems that all the CFW is for OFW 3.55. Is loosing the bluray drive still an issue?

    Also, what are the best CFWs available? I mostly see KMEAW, but I also see Rebug and Waninkoko. Is there any more that are current?
    Would I be unable to play the newer store bought movies and games? Are there regular updates for the CFWs or would I only be able to play whatever was available with my last OFW update?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
