    You don't need to downgrade when you swap HDD. Grab Rogero 4.40 and put it on your USB flashdrive --> PS3.

    Swap the HDD, and PS3 will ask to reinstall firmware.

    I'm too on Rogero 4.40, with multiman etc.
    I'm currently waiting gor a Samsung 1TB hd.
    So just to be sure and not make something stupid.
    Before swaping disks, do I need to make a backup or something? And if yes, from XMB or manual via ftp?
    In case a system backup is proposed, after the swap do i need to restore first or install Rogero ?

    Edit: At another forum one person wrote :
    The backup must be done on external hdd i guess, right?

    A backup is only needed if you want to keep your saves/trophies.
    And yes it must be done on an external HDD.
    You can also just backup your saves manually but i have never do so so i can't help you with that.

    I tried backing up the saves manually to copy them to another profile, but I got a nice prompt "Save not for this user".

    If he changes the HDD without making a backup, he will probably have to create a new user and will have the same problem, unless he unlock them with Aldotools' BruteforceSaveData.
    I don't know if it can also transfer/unties trophies to the user account it was created on.

    I'm a ps3 noob and have a 750 gig drive on the way from new egg for my PS2 BC fat. I don't have anything I'd really miss on my stock drive. I recently moved to Rogero 4.46 + Cobra, not sure that detail matters at all. Any advice on how to best proceed?
