    Alright, I own a slim PS3 on 4.55 OFW. Is there a way for me to install a CFW (I understand Rogero is probably the best) without any other equipment? Is it safe (no bricks)? (I mostly want it to be able to play all of my games with Vita remote play)

    Not without hardware! You would need to downgrade to 3.55.

    That's weird, I saw at least 2 separate YouTube videos of installing Rogero on 4.55.

    They didn't install it on a 4.55 console without hardware. You probably saw them install 4.55 CFW on top of another CFW or from 3.55. It's not possible to hack a 4.55 PS3 without hardware.

    Really? Damn. So if I really want CFW, what are my options?

    [EDIT] I guess now's a good time to ask, what exactly is MultiMAN?

    You need to buy a downgrader. I believe it's called E3 flasher. Don't know a lot about it as I have never had to use it. I just know that it is needed to be able to downgrade. Sorry I cant be more help there.

    Oof. Googled it, I don't think I'm going to be doing that. Thanks anyway though. Does anyone know if there's a chance of a completely software-based, safe exploit for 4.55 anytime soon?

    Well that sucks. I guess my dreams of actually decent remote play have been crushed.

    Many modchip places will have the flashing tool and can perform the downgrade to 3.55 for you for a price.

    How is an ODE installed? Can it install a CFW?

    These are your two options.

    ODE

    Dual-Boot CFW\OFW

    Both are equally difficult to install I would recommend ODE as it might be a bit safer, but it really comes down to preference.

    Alright, if I decide on an ODE, can I do it on my Slim CECH-2001A? Also is it possible without soldering to the PS3?

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    You are in the USA.. it is easy for you to go to the Pawn shop. They have an old ps3 slim or phat that might have 3.41 or 3.55. Test it at the pawn shop before you buy it. I did few years ago. :D

    How likely is an ODE (specifically Cobra ODE) to get you banned?

    Probably less than CFW. Though the risk is always there. Sony has started cracking down on ODE's in the last couple firmware revisions.
