I hadn't been playing on PSN or updating my console ever since the jailbreak news. Now that I finally have some time to play, I'd like to find out if there are any risks of updating my original firmware to a next version of OFW (I don't want to go CFW yet, want to play a bit on PSN for now). I couldn't find any specific answers on that in the sticky FAQ threads, so I'll ask you here:
I heard that in order to downgrade your console, you no longer need an exploit, you can use the recovery mode. Can Sony somehow disable this mode via their updates, making their consoles fixable only with a hardware flasher? Or, can they disable the hacks in any other way in the future?
I only want the answer if you're 100% sure.
