OK! Problems aside, I have 3.41 firmware with open manager and multiman installed and have successfully copied a few games ( none after november 2010 due to firmware complications). Many of people have told me to update to 3.55 and then get custom firmware to use for backups. However my only problem is I don't want to update to find out that I made a mistake and cannot downgrade to 3.41 again. I am just sincerely confused and have been reading on this subject for months so I wouldn't consider myself a noob I have just never had any success with multiman and therefore dont know how to patch or change firmware from multiman to run on 3.41. With enough nonsense being said, Should I update to 3.55 with custom firmware with better success to run newer games?!?!?!??!! Thank you, ANYONE FOR HELP!!!!
