No flasher = No try. Policy to live by
I wonder if it's still worth being on 3.55 CFW if all these supposed 4.00+ FW CFWs come out. Especially with the risks of your PS3 being bricked.
Its worth being on 3.55, let me tell you this with 3.55 you know that things are gonna regardless if you have PSN or not. With 3.55 you have some of the major stuff on there, like cold boots, boot up sounds apps, homebrew, and much more, with the recent release of 4.XX CFW precautionary measures need to be taken, and also not that very much is available at the moment for that CFW only a backup manage, no brew or applications.
So stick with 3.55 and maybe in the near future update your console when its more safer than it is now, agreed that some fixes have been made to the recent CFW in order for it to be made more stable and "brick free" but its only good to those who have a hardware flasher handy with them. Hope this made sense
Titan, they seem to be stable enough to be used by people who don't have hardware flasher. Rogero current CFW is giving minimal bricks and there is a very high chance they're coming from users messing things up. If all you do on your PS3 with CFW is play backups and Showtime (pretty sure thats what most people do), then 4.30 could be a good idea, specially because you won't have to waist time looking for fixes.
4.30 is only a good idea if you want/need PSN on CFW and the ability to play homebrew other than that i don't see the need to upgrade even though its been made safe what you can do on 4.30 you can also do on 3.55
Why do we even care if we aren't able to install this on 3.56+
i dont agree as recent bricks on official 4.21 or may be 4.25 came mainly from u.s and i know they have best internet connectivity in the world..
simply untrue, china and other countries in asia have been testing 100gig broadband for nearly 2 years. i ain't seen anywhere in the us with 100gig broadband.
i think uk probably has the worst in europe, even belgium is more stable. as for the updates briscking due to poor internet its highly unlikely since the update is downloaded and verified before install. installation wouldn't proceed if the file was damaged.
it does not install direct over the internet. oh and please don't install this FW without a flasher (or not at all).

Yeah, the fast we have here is Google Fibre at 1Gigabit.
Because there are people on 3.55 CFW that wish a more updated CFW, also, there are people on 3.56+ that are willing to waist some cash to downgrade their PS3. Lv0.2 PS3 people are out of luck though. Anyway, just because this CFW might not be a big thing for you, It is for others.
