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.

Why you want to use your USB JB? It's complete integrated in warninkoko v2... You have to replace the modified eboot's with the original one...

Can I still use dongle USB JB in waninkoko v2? and what about my backups that use modified eboot? Do I still need to restore all my backups to original eboot? sorry noob question here.

Liked this at first but for some reason I had a lot of freezing issues with WNK v2... switched to Kmeaw since most stuff is made for Kmeaw anyway, no more freezing.

works great for me. Now playing off my old PS3 only 6 of 15 games do not work. Not having a working blue ray hinders some of my back ups from playing.

Hi.. I have installed the v2 and im using multiman 1.15.1 and its working perfect no more black screen on any game... my ps3 is a CECH-A00A and i get this one day before release day on Japan.

So it is very old and still working fine... before this i tried the kmeaw and just freezes a lot... so for me this one is very stable... the only problem till now is the psn games.. they are not installing... Error 80029564... anyone have a fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

for the amount of time it takes to do an update to 3.55 - it's a safe bet.
