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 think I'm supposed to make CFW related questions in the release thread, I apologize if I'm not. Anyway, I've got a 20GB first gen. PS3 on 3.41 right now, can I update straight to Waninkoko 3.55 with the modified update or do I need to go to 3.55 first?

I just installed V2 of this FW. now some apps like ps3 doom won't launch it just returns with an error.

is it because the pkg is signed wrong?

Hey there everyone,

I upgraded from Kmeaw's to Waninkoko's v2 because of the freezing issues. I noticed no freezing in the first day, but now it seems that it freezes much more. This happens at random times (mostly in the XMB, hardly ever in game) and I have to get up and turn my PS3 off through the back switch.

Is there a known fix for this, or have I done something wrong? I can play everything fine, but the freezing is getting a bit annoying. I've had to reset my ps3 over a hundred times the last few days.

Works great! I got two PS3's on Waninkoko V2 and PS3 media server is recognizing them both and it works like a charm.

Would there be a way for a CFW or MFW to remove Cinavia protection completely or even without CFW. Cinavia has gotten very pesky and I would believe that since we have pretty much full control of the OS, that we could simply remove the files attributed to it. I am not knowledgeable in coding or programming so I wouldnt know. Any Dev's working on it?

Kmeaws cfw works with PSN without any issues, using gaia manager i havent found a backup game yet that doesn't work.

Now onto this CFW, installed, PSN DO NOT INSTALL, i get a error with every PSN game i try installing, the exact same oes installed under Kmeaws.

Guess i'm going to upgrade over this crap with Kmeaws as its the most reliable CFW out there.

I have 2 D-Link DNS323 NAS boxes connected to my network with over 6 TB of movies on it and i upgraded to Wanin's V2 - media streaming still works perfectly from the nas over cable anyway. Dont know about using the ps3 streaming server though, but i dont see why not.

Does Media Streaming work with WANINKOKO V2?

Thinking of installing WANINKOKO V2 but I would like to keep the ability to stream movies to PS3. I currently use PS3 media server and love it and would like to continue to be able to stream avis and mkvs.
