Yea, it really seems like flipping a coin with bricks. You're right that most people updated for piracy or access on PSN but really only a true daredevil or complete retard will still want to try out this firmware.

i flashed mine 3 times with waninkokos while messing around and no brick, but i ended up going back to normal 3.55 with geohots exploit
many people says it's buggy, how's that "buggyness"?
If you use the correct method and verify the MD5 of files, is 100% safe!!
Remember, only 16MB Nand.
I installed in 5 Slim Consoles and no problems to report !!
aw man... if you dont know what you are talking about, please shut up!
NOTHING is 100% safe when it comes to flashing, especially in this case!
whats up with all those waninkoko fanboys?! every advanced dev in the scene says the same thing including mathieulh and wanin HIMSELF! he made a big mistake releasing this!
and even if your console boots a few times, that doesnt mean it wont brick after a few more reboots.
just look at the code...
oh well, just do what you want. i warned you several times.
no risk, no fun, eh?
"many people says it's buggy, how's that "buggyness"?: slow and constantly crashing xmb, brick after few reboots, bricks after flashing, freezes, and so on...
this apperantly doesnt apply to every single ps3, you might get lucky. i like russian roulette, dont u?
if i install Waninkoko's cfw play a game, and then restore to ofw. will i still be safe on psn and future updates from $0ny?
its ok to update
do it, i just updated my 250gb slim
16mb nand is fine
He tested with 5 PS3 but some dude in this forum bricked 5 PS3 so it's up to you.
PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55 Compatibility List. Let's help people to know if CFW is compatible is his console. http://bit.ly/gZq6Zt
To make everybody happy... WARNING! CFW 3.55 can brick your console. Do NOT install it except you're 100% sure it works in your model.
And of course I feel bad for bricking hundreds of PS3 unexpectedly.
And I repeat... I tested it, my 4 testers tried it, no issues. Nobody else wanted to test it. I did all I could with my resources.
