    I am currently on 3.55 kmeaw, I have been on it forever but have been hearing about rogero and sgk's 4.31 cfws. My question is, is it worth it to upgrade and if so then what is the best and latest cfw that I can upgrade to? Will I lose any features and will I be able to return if I dont like the new firmware? Also, I know waninkoko's cfw used to brick some older ps3s, are these new cfws fully compatible or do I need to check somewhere to see if my ps3 is supported? for reference I have a CECHK01 (phat 80gb).

    I was on kmeaw 3.55 and upgraded to rogero CFW 4.31. It is well worth it. U get to play new games as well as play online. There are guides to downgrade back to 3.55 kmeaw. Just do goggle search. Plus from experience you do get more features. Goodluck!

    good call roycar71, I upgraded to try it out (since it was downgradeable) and its pretty nice. Just through some initial testing I got online and my netflix working finally (in 3.55 it was blocked), plus I got showtime which plays allot more video formats then the standard ps3 video player and good old multiman works as great as ever. If everything stays working as good as it is now then I will definitely not be going back to kmeaw. Im still interested in sgk's 4.31 possibly, after reading a bit about it, it seems more up to date and with more features but I dont know yet, I have used rogero stuff before (rogero manager) and he is a trusted source but I have never heard of sgk so thats kinda a down side.

    If you manage to get to Xbox Live with a PS3 you may be the star of the hacker scene, I think you refer to PSN or SEN as it is called nowadays. As long as you don't update to a CFW that is on the same number than the most up to date official firmware, yes, you can't go online on SEN.
