I'm getting a new PS3 slim today (CECH-2500) after my PS3 fat (EU launch unit) was bricked by Wanikoko soddy CFW (bummer!)...
Anyway, I'm now trying get a overview what CFW, patches and BM I need for my new unit and ensure I'm understanding everything correctly.
I'm not a n00b reg. the technical aspects (patching, copying files to the correct locations, etc), I'm just trying to get a overview in the many CFW, patches, methodes, BM, etc. that are out there and evolving every day
I'm planning on installing this in this order:
1) Ensuring 3.55 OFW is installed
2) Install geohot's 3.55 jailbreak (via XMB update or service-mode)
3) Install Wutangrza CFW (via service-mode)
4) Install lv2 patch (via Install package option in XMB)
Should that be ok on a CECH-2500 unit - no bricking or other downside?
a) Does this allow me to use the latest backup managers (like MultiMan) ?
b) Do I need to install lv2 PGK (from USB) before each game in BM?
c) Can I still play bluray and DVD movies, and original games?
Thanks in advance
