    Question [Answered] PS3 Custom Firmware questions help?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to the scene, but I'm eager to learn. I've read a lot of guides and forum posts, but none of them really explicitly explains these things (probably for legal reasons), but here goes:

    - How do the different CFWs differ in terms of functionality, stability, etc.
    - What is the significance of 3.55? And when can we expect that kind of functionality to say... 4.21 or something?
    - How does Multiman work? Does it trick your PS3 into "thinking" there's a disc in the slot?
    - Is Multiman the tool required to play PS3?

    Thanks in advance. I really appreciate it.

    The differences between the CFW's are slim to none, the stability is no problem anymore if you stay with known dev's. I Like the REX CFW for it debug features which can be handy

    For 3.55 you have to patch every new game and stuff to run and it is a hassle and the new FW also add support for some stuff

    How does MM work in short its mouts/redirects you BD drive to an folder , some games run without a DB in the tray some don't

    MM is the most developed backup manager out there there are others but they mostly work the same way
