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.

Very strange... Got about 3 friends also cannot play online or dl stuff from psn. Maybe the security hole is fixed here? Dunno. Too dangerous for me right now anyway.

Will stay on xlink until a proper 3.56 CFW is out.

Well that's ok i guess. I trust you, no need for pictures here. Like i said before it works not since 2 days now, before it does.

And for Xlinkkai it was just a hint that you can play safely with it. Also the compatibility is ok right now. And well, you wont get banned on xlink ever. Anyway, its up to everybodys own choice what to do.

I'm telling you I'm on Kmeaw and I just played Uncharted 2 online to test, still working. I'll upload some pics to you. And I'm playing over PSN and not Xlink.

Well, ok , true. Sometimes it works, but that's a very rare event for me right now. But to be honest, sync your trophies if you cannot play online is...

Online gaming wont work here since 2 days. (on my original it works fine btw) But anyway, since we get a chance to play via Xlinkai i wont set myself into that danger of being banned someday.

Much more games work now, not all for sure but enough to have fun:

Really? I can download stuff from the store, sometimes it gives me an error, but I restart the proxy and it works, also online gaming.

Ok, but its verry restricted right. You can access PSN and sync your trophies , but that's it. NO online gaming and NO downloads of the store.

Thanks for the video, Its a question i was going to ask myself. when i downgraded i lost my PSN login info, when i then upgraded after it remained blank, as you would expect.Now when i try to sign in, its telling me i have to upgrade before i can register.

Anyone know a way around this ? The firmware works great for games from both USB and HDD so im going to stick with it , but id like to be able to stay online as well if at all possible, obviously without going to 3.56... unless thats the way to get it all working.

Ohh BTW - GTA5 works diskless with this... someone asked about that scenario earlier.
