I'll be staying on 3.41 until I or someone here at the scene figures out solution for 3.50 blu ray video I'll be watching new videos on showtime as mkv files. To much working and not available on 3.55 to jump ship. What if, in the future, someone finds the usb exploit could be used for something new:chinscrat
Downgrading from 3.55 sounds a little scary. I've seen a lot of warning signs: "Download files for 3.55 downgrade:
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DOWNGRADE A SLIM UNIT WITH THESE FILES YOU WILL BRICK IT!!! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK"
....I'm on a slim move bundle

how is the compatibility of games between 3.41 ofw and 3.41 cfw with dongle or withouot dongle?
if cfw are the best, which will be the best for games compatibility?
(pls give the download link if can. thanks)
I guess I'm a little off topic being on cfw but I have to say my question is why switch to 3.55? I see no disadvantages to being on 3.41. The only advantage I see to being on 3.55 is not having to modify eboots on 3.50-3.56. With the disadvantages being: possible brick if future downgrade, lack of disc-less support, no third party controllers, no usb exploit list seems to go on and on.
Please tell me again why wouldn't I be on 3.41 with dongle?
I personally prefer hermes 3.41 cfw so no Dongle needed and I can turn PS3 on with controller. Even without these comforts I fail to see why 3.55 is a good idea to someone fortunate enough to be on 3.41;)
I found my issue can be solved by a- rebug cfw 3.41 or b- create my own with PS3MFW Builder
Please if anyone else has any suggestions for Blu-Ray 3.50+ video playback pm me
may i ask rebug 3.41 or ps3mfw support more games than 3.41 ofw with dongle?
From what I know, which is little, the game compatibility has alot to do with what FW, payload, and boot manager, you are using.
I have never had any issues with any games up until these 3.6 games using hermes 3.41 cfw, hermesvD 1.0.3 payload and the newest open manager (nice because of easy to use XMB shortcuts, and simplicity) You can do this on either 3.41cfw or firware flashed to dongle.
I've heard 3.55 has compatibility issues with some older games? Another point for 3.41. I guess payload is only loaded depending on which boot manager your using with 3.55? Does anyone know which BM use which payloads?
