Congratulations idiot of the year award is yours.
don't lose your hopes.
3.56 will be hacked soon and please don't compare 3.55 cfw with jtag.
3.56 OFW --> 3.55-jb , Providing all evidences

PLEASE READ BEFORE FLAMING:
Before you all start flaming, linking me to this thread which I read page by page & post by post, please note that the reason of me posting here is the amount of trust I give "like everyone's else" to this forum and its credibility.. & I'm ready to provide the original PUP file that I tried, if anyone is interested..
Ok, here is my situation (screens are provided too, they are from my PS3).. I have a PS3 with 3.56OFW installed. My cousin came to me saying that he found a JB for this firmware and he gave it to me on a USB.. So I tried it, and here are the results:
It said that a new update is found and its 3.55-jb firmware made by geohot..
I didn't update my PS3 YET because of the "3.56 = no jb" threads I read through out this forum.. So, is there any harm of trying out this JB? will it brick my console? & if it successes, can I install stuff like everyone else (ex: package managers, etc) ?
Sadly that 3.55-jb file is one of many if scam files from one of those scam survery or paid for better access sites!
The old saying their is a sucker born each minute is still true!
Three things will happen if you try to install this!
1: your ps3 will just display corrupted data near the end and return to your 3.60fw ( if you are very lucky, if so buy a lottery ticket you will win!)
2: it just a joke 3.60 original firmware with the text files changed (most likely, not the case it normally 1 above or 3 below)
3: it is really a modded kreaw or ps3ita firmware and since you are 3.60 you get stuck forever in an update loop or your machine will rsod after install, in that case you your only hope might be to try the recovery menu install or use service mode which will make it even worse!
I'm currently on 3.56OFW not 3.60.. but it doesn't make any difference since the result is the same..
Thank you so much for your kind reply.. I think i'll be waiting like everyone else..
Interesting read. –
Currently running 3.60 OFW on my ps3. (Stupid yes, Idiotic yes.) I've had friends bugging me to play games online with them and up until recently had no real desire to run modified or custom firmware on my ps3. Was scared of losing blu-ray playback. So upon further investigation I find that there is no way to play backups once you are past 3.56 OFW.
I am a huge gamer. I have been modifying consoles since the psone. Even temporarily repaired my last 360's RROD. (good ol' penny trick)
Since then my new 360 is not modded as I do not want to get banned I play more 360 games online than I do ps3 due to the wonderful chat system xbox live has. I don't mind paying for live, I think it's worth it. I had a wii that I modded myself as well, but my ex took it with my old ps3.
I have decided after much deliberation that I most definitely want to modify my ps3 so that I can play backups. (that's why my psp is modded lol.)
What I would like to see is people saying "we know it's a problem and we'll try to find a way for people who are on 3.56 or 3.60 to play backups."
But all I seem to see is people asking or begging for a way and getting responses like "it's not gonna happen go sell your ps3 and get a new one, piss off" sort of stuff.
I can understand how frustrating is can be to be in my situation, and how frustrating it can be to be on the other end as well. To be constantly bombarded with requests and demands for information.
The bottom line is, those unfortunate enough to be on OFW 3.56 and above need a solution. I can admit to being a gaming addict. I always need the newest thing, I burn through games like crazy, especially since play times with games seem to be getting shorter nowadays. There is no point for me to pay 80 dollars for a game that I can beat in 8 hours. (I can do that in one sitting) so really it's a waste.
Sony is just a big bully IMO. I don't agree with some of their business practices, and I don't feel like supporting them because of that.
All we can do at this point is hope.
what about exploits on those FW?

I know there a good bit of people that play thru games just to beat them and then never play them again, so if thats your case, then renting could be a good solution for you...I get bored with alot of games quickly and sometimes scared to try new ones. Some games like Mortal Kombat and God of War are games that I know I will enjoy and have no problem buying them, others I would demo on PSN while we had it.
I agree that Sony is a bully as well....releasing 3.56 was NOTHING more than to keep CFW users off their network, it brought no new features at all, at least 3.60 brought cloud saving to PSN+ users....but still, you shouldn't be FORCED to update to access PSN...I know Xbox forces updates to use Live,but it doesn't render back-ups unplayable on flashed drives. I think 3.56 should have never been released and 3.60 should only be required for PSN+ subscribers since it brings something new to them...I mean really, the way Sony has been releasing firmwares here lately, people are gonna find themselves getting new updates every time they turn their system on...what's next, on Sony's list? I would say something about what COULD be next but I dont want Sony seeing this site, taking the idea and then shutting down this site!
As of 1/26/2011:
3.60 Now Live!
PS3 80GB Non-BC >> Waninkoko 3.55 >> Kmeaw 3.55>> Sold!
Sure-fire way to prevent PSN Bans: Update to OFW!
There is some hope for downgrading 3.56 and 3.60.
If we create a GameOS app like graf said and found an exploit for 3.56 and 3.60, we could downgrade.
