Honestly as it stands it's all a mess IMO. I'm waiting for a huge CFW release, I don't have the patience to deal with dongles and BD burning. That defeats the main reasons why I use CFW, not having to switch discs and faster loading times.
Not so sure about these cause eboots might be made anymore since the dongle isn't being made. From what I heard is that they will be coming out with a new one soon. Also e3 is suppose to have something coming out. Thanks
