[Answered] Upgrading PS3 HD, what CFW should I use help?
I just finally got my first 3.55 PS3 (an 80 gig phat) today, and am upgrading the HD with a 300GB I had laying around.
What I'm not clear on is, what CFW should I use? I'm about to install a fresh 3.55 OFW and then I will jailbreak.
What would you all suggest as the best CFW to use, and why? What exactly are the advantages/disadvantages of them? I've been reading a lot of stuff but frankly it's left me more than a bit confused. I'm concerned about things like losing Blu-ray playback capability, for instance.
I'm not overly concerned about losing PSN access, since I can always use my other units for that, but if it is in fact possible to go to CFW and still play online with friends, that would be a huge plus.
Thanks in advance for your input as I begin navigating these waters!

3.55 CFWs can run newer games just fine, pretty sure you only get issues with the old fixes before we had the newer keys.
CFW 4.xx not only is less stable and have lower homebrew compatibility (most works though), It also doesn't have a proper RSOD fix, so If you get RSOD with it, you'll need buy a flasher to downgrade back to 3.55 and fix It.
Anyway, If you plan on getting 4.xx or 3.55, I'd recomend you to use Rebug CFW, they're very trustworthy and only release groundbreaking well tested CFWs, even If you won't use most of It's features I'd say It's worth It.
