    EDIT: So I found this nice seller on modded PS3's, bought one, but it's coming with this weird "Habib" firmware which I've never heard off. Should I change it when I get it or should I just leave it as it is?​

    Bumping because I changed the whole question but couldn't change the title.

    Also, if any mod sees fit to delete this thread, please do so. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Habib is another firmware by and/or related to Rogero, which you should be familiar with. If it works, why not keep it? I've heard better things about Rebug, which is why I plan on installing it on my PS3, but which is better is subjective.

    Yeah, I know there's no absolute better, what I meant was what's different about it, you know? What does it have that other lacks and vice-versa

    Here's a very detailed guide from a guy at ps3hax, who also posts here on GBAtemp: http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=55639 It's what I used when making my decision. Seemed pretty clearcut.

    Nice! It does seem like Rebug is clearly the superior choice. But it does sound kinda complicated to go from Habib 4.50 to rebug 4.46... I'm kinda of (completely) a PS3 noob. This downgrading thing kinda scares me =(

    Habib/Rogero/whatever firmware other then Rebug are just quickly pushed out.

    Better to wait for a firmware which is tested more.
    Which basically comes down to Rebug

    But hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    But let's say I wait for Rebug 4.50. In that case I can just install one over the other?

    Don't worry, I've pretty much asked the same questions here.

    Habib and Rogero are often hybrid CFW. That means it mix some files from previous OFW. They showed up faster than Rebug.

    Rebug is built from scratch from the same version, and is more stable than other two. Use Rebug whenever possible.
