ATM I have no time to play at all. But I think I will update to 4.00 in April to be able to play FF13-2. If there's no new CFW until then I will buy E3 and give it a try.
Another question - sorry for being off topic, but did anyone that updated to OFW really get banned from PSN?
I haven't heard any reports of people getting banned when updating to OFW from CFW, but to be safe you can delete all your game and file managers.

As we said sony isn't that bad. It's more likely the scene which then sony have to react. So if we all calm down a bit and don't act like a Geohot "Oh look what i have done dare you sony" i'm pretty sure they wont start hunting us down or banning us.
The only ones that get banned would be cheaters and guys using/programming trainers.

I GOT BANNED for NO reason. My PS3 got banned in the first lot of console bans. My account also got banned for no reason and they wont tell me why either.
$ony ARE The enemy and they do ban people just coz they don't like you. I've had nothing but problems with the PS3 and $ony as they dont care what the problem is as long as they have your money they no longer care about you. You are a number and a cash amount to them, that's all.
One question, i dont have the E3 yet. After the instalation what do i have to do to switch between OFW and CFW. I know i have to change the hard drive, what else?
Already seen it in the manual. Another question... How do i cut the wire without being afraid of damaging the board? And is there a higher quality pic to show which wire to cut?
And in which step do i cut it?
If you look close you will see a trace on the board. Also make sure you use a tester to make sure that the trace is cut.
Trace, tester? Sorry but english isn't my first language?
