I wouldn't install this until people have everything running with no bricks. I mean they play with their normal disc games with no problems online and off. They play with their backed up disc games with no problems online and off and they run apps with no problems.
Same problem, Im pissed :[

Keep up and dont give up, don't listen to others that it's beyond repair because thats all I got to hear aswell.

I need help very fast pls! Im in town with my iPhone rite now and i have to know if I can use a normal external drive usb 1 TB to backup my games?
Yeah, this bricked my US phat 3.41 console. Won't even boot far enough to get into recovery mode now. Thanks for that, Waninkoko. Thanks for really rigorously testing a firmware mod. Good times.
You installed this and bricked and this is how you fixed it?

Goddamn it indeed. Just reporting in that I was able to install it no problems. 300GB slim with 3.55 OFW. Reinstalled OFW via recovery menu beforehand. MD5 checked custom firmware beforehand.
