    If you have NAND (old CECHA-CECHG phats), you won't loose the CFW if u format the hdd because it's fully stored on 2x 128MB NAND chips. If you have NOR (newer than CECHG), then only part of the FW is stored on the NOR Chip (16MB) and the rest is stored on you HDD. So you have to re-install the FW when you format/replace the HDD.

    Now, if you have an older version of Rogero 4.30 (v1.xx), you cannot re-install it if you format the HDD. So upgrade to v2.05 before you format. If you're on Rebug, you can format an re-install the CFW without any problems.

    It can't be CECHG because CECHG is a phat, it's proabably CECH-2501B.

    Yes, format it, then when you plug it back into your PS3 it will ask you to re-install your system software, so put Rogero 4.30 v2.05 on ur flash drive and re-install it.
