3.41 Hermes v4 USERS READ!
If you are considering updating to a 3.55 CFW, you should be aware that none of them run from a Hermes payload.
I think it all now depends on if you're willing to use Kakaroto's PL3 to run backups and accept its hundreds of bugs and get PSN access at the same time or wait for a Hermes v4 3.55 CFW and bow down as the ultimate.
Waninkoko's 3.55 CFW uses PL3. Very buggy, very unstable. But backup managers work.
Wutangrazas 3.55 CFW also uses PL3 (as far as I'm aware, proove me wrong!!!). So they are nearly equal at this time. The only drawback to Wutang is that it requires the install of a PKG every time on system boot to run backup managers.
They both suffer from various unneccersary freezes and a Hermes v4 3.55 CFW from either Waninkoko or anyone else is clearly the answer to all this.
