    I'd say - unless you're for example after Move support or 3D gaming - NO!

    Because - there might be much more vulnerabilities present in 3.15 FW than in 3.41 so you could be able to install CFW or run some extra homebrew which might not be possible (or at least not right away) on later versions of FWs ...

    Hmmm I wonder if you used the USB Firmware loader with the dev_flash from 3.01 on a 3.41 machine, if it would let you "upgrade" to 3.15...?

    Perhaps. But aren't there WAY more devs working on 3.41. Aren't we likely to have breakthroughs there first? And those breakthroughs might not even work on older fw's right away, and it could take a long time before they get ported.

    Anyway, I've told my friend to hold off on upgrading. I'll wait a little and see what happens.

    sadly no.. because even if you are running ur dev_flash via usb with jaicrabs loader... and you have for instance 3.01 running from USB, when you start the update the ps3 will reboot and no longer be running from the dev_flash on the usb drive or be jailbroken at this point so the update pkg will still see that your on 3.41 (or whatever you happen to be on)

    I have now updated the first post with the 3.10 and 3.15 update from KaKaRoTo in case anyone needs it.

    Wow, big thanks to KaKaRoTo!!! I think the best way to figure out how was OtherOS disabled would be to add support for 3.21 and compare the differences between 3.15 and 3.21...

    It would be awesome to use that info to enable OtherOS in 3.41 but I think probably after 3.21 Sony keep crypling the frimware and slowly removing the now unnecessary OtherOS stuff which would make it a lot more difficult...

    I have higher hopes for Marcan's work on AsbestOS to be able to use Linux on 3.41 which also removes the access to RSX limitation...
