Are you? How do you see the FW on a sales package? (hint: you don't).

-the seller clearly states that the FW is
a)3.55 - in which case the price raises to higher than new consoles,
b)3.41 - add 50 to price in a)
c)3.15 with BC - 2x the price of a new device
I the end you just have to chance it - and I hate to take 200€ chances
Most peoples that keeps on saying that 3.60 cfw is needed here mostly say that because they want PSN access. That means the hacking scene is not for you. I understand those that want a 3.60 cfw for hacking ps3 consoles that comes on 3.56/3.60 stock from manufacture and all. Thats the only good available reason there is and even there. It could wait a few versions to not waste the new hacks that could be used on a firmware that adds something useful. Cloud storage is certainly not in that category since its PSN only its even PSN+ only so...
Other than that, anyone trying to get online on PSN with a cfw needs to learn now to not push their hopes too high. Cause it will hurt them really hard once again when it gets patched by Sony. If PSN is so vital for you and you need cfws at same time. Go at your local pawn shop and buy a 2nd PS3 for hacking, thats the best solution for you. Also, all those wanting to play pirated software online need to realise that theres never gonna be viable solutions. Unless some peoples teams up and creates a custom PSN for that purpose and everything.
Even when hackers/programmers makes a work around to get on PSN, Sony replies back with new firmware and patch the thing. Yeah, maybe you will be able to get on PSN for 2 weeks or so. But when they patch it you will get hurt, so why even bother to try to combine cfw with psn when you know its gonna get patched anyway. I guess you are a masochist...
gonna add my 2penneth...i think were missing the point...the whole point of the "scene" whether it be psp..wii...iphone..pc...is P O C...(proof of concept)....they push we push back!!
lets go back to the psp...dark alek didnt suddenly come up with m33-6...it was a work in progress
g hotz didnt suddenly come up with his iphone fix and that was that....
Mathieulh's wii exploit wasnt job done first time round....
the difference with this "scene"is every1 wants it now,now,NOW!
if i were these guys i would shrug my shoulders and say"**** the ungrateful *******s"
Oh come on now....you know the answer to that....PSN!
