    PUP SHA1: a4f155711bbb031022d0c531d70a0b7a180b7aca

    From his page, to quote roughly translated: This PS3 CFW is installed directly into the NAND has been tested in different models of console (FAT and Slim, reported in the main post) and without any bricking or similar problem.

    The testers have reported a high stability in the CFW and the same compatibility with games that could be obtained with different dongles.

    The main core of the payload is based on Hermes, also has some features of PL3 and supplementary code and improved by Waninkoko.

    Attempted to create an application that enable / disable the payload, so that after leaving a manager backup Blu-ray was functional. After some testing has not been able to be operational, it would be desirable for the various backups managers were in charge of implementing such functionality or may be added in a later CFW.

    I have a couple questions for those who installed.

    1. I have 3.41, If I install this will my signed psn games still work?
    2. Bluray movies still work since payload is integrated?
    3. Do we use 3.41 signed homebrew or 3.55?
    4. As stated above can it install unsigned packages?

    Hope the DNS trick will last some time, so the devs can work in peace on the 3.56 CFW

    Using ps3tools and IDA with xorloser's plugin you can easily see it's PL3 with nothing more than load-alignment into 3.55 lv2 SELFs. Also if you're going to use other peoples work, that works, you shouldn't attack them when your lack of knowledge ends up glitching your implementations.

    Sits back and waits for the brick reports to roll in... "improved by Waninkoko"

    You should be able to just install wani cfw v2 over the top of any ofw/cfw without any problems. I will be installing it later today over the top of wani cfw v1.
