A Tale Of Two Thousand Bricks (And Counting)
Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating that number but I can speak from personal experience. My CECH-2001A PS3 is among the unlucky bricks after installing one of the new CFW's by BlueDisk or Rogero. It seems that it does not matter what model you have. Right now it's a crap shoot on whether or not you will be among the unlucky paper weight owners.
I've been seeing countless reports of bricks using these new firmwares. Rogero has stated that he is working on an updated version that is safer but nothing is 100% foolproof so take this warning to heart.
IF YOU DO NOT OWN A HARDWARE FLASHER DO NOT INSTALL ANY NEW CFW UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
