There have been several reports of freezes and such with Waninkoko's CFW, but "brick" is a pretty harsh term, and means something completely different.

That said, it WOULD be interesting to see some video of Waninkoko's firmware glitching. I have to wonder if some of the "undowngradeable" consoles are effected, and there isn't some sort of check that was missed in fiddling with lv2 that gets "hit" with an unpatched check, causing the problems. Clearly, Sony put in some nasty fault modes for would-be hackers after 3.42 to slow them down. This was part of the problem flukes1 was having with his initial attempts to patch lv2.
Working hard on UberCFW, incorporating NTFS, sub-free NetFlix and Blockbuster, PSN cheat system with built-in swearbot and MAC-spoofing, Adding MKV, RAM and BIK movie support, and Xbox360 emu*.
