the first one seemed to hit slims, the second one seems to hit phats, but i dont think the brick rate on the first one was exceptionally high, and its a lot lower on the second one. infact i've only heard of 2, theres probably more but considering how many successful updates there has been on both versions.
i'd say it was pretty successful, and both did come with warning only to try if you have a hardware flasher. and common sense itself tells you to wait untill those that do, have tried it.
its just a shame there was any bricks at all. it would have been one hell of a finger in the eye for sony.
Personally i love my Rogero 4.21 V1 but it would appear i was just very lucky.
I thought the FAT versions were safe but it seems like they aren't... i recommend to totally skip this CFW and do not install it if you wish to keep your PS3. I waited until a better version come out but it seems like this version isn't any better.
