About to make the switch
Only cons I can think of is Asbestos heeds to be run from PKG, not from USB Dongle.
Actually, you don't need to make a backup of your saves and seek for "special" OFW for your region. Use multiMAN instead of Gaia. I updated my PS3 through recovery menu (got error from XMB).
thanks for the replies gonna make the switch after i finish homework in the mean time if anyone can think of cons would be greatly appreciated
another question.. will the backup managers i already have and black box and snes and fceu all get deleted once i upgrade? i do want to get rid of them anyways
Nothing will be deleted or corrupted if you make it right. Cons.. you've bought your dongle, now it will be useless =)
I just had the same questions and worries but updated to 3.55. It was a great experience.
I didn't backup anything and lost nothing in the process.
There are two things not in the guide there that I did also. After I had installed CFW 3.55 and after multiman, gaia and blackb0x ftp were on there.
1. installed BDEMU.pkg you'll need to install this else multiman will give a bd emulation error. Once installed that's it though. (you can skip installing or reading about lvl2)
2. Move all my games from the laun12345 directory to dev_hdd0/GAMES directory. I had to do this because I had backup manager 1.0 installed and having that was conflicting with multiman. Uninstalling it deletes the laun12345 directroy.
This only needs to be done if you still have backup manager still
I'm unsure if this needs to be done for openmanager too or if you have games in OMAN.
This is simple, open multiman. press select+start this will put it in file manager mode. On one side navigate to your games directory the other to the directory above.
Highlight a game and press O. This should move your game to the other directory. You'll have to do this for all games.
After that's done I deleted backup manager and open manager. (triangle, delete from XMB).
Now the only programs I have there are multiman, blackbox ftp and gaia.
this is the bdemu-355KM.pkg I used. I got it from some thread on here.
