No one knows mate.
If I were you I would figure out a way to get a 3.55 or 3.55 downgradable PS3.
(you can use my tool: http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=41685 to try figure out the FW version without even turning the PS3 on)
(I have both (2xPS3's 1 OFW 4.21, 1 3.55 CFW) and a x360 and ihas burner)
PS3 is so much easier to back games up on a hdd, my 360 discs get lost or damaged all the time recently.
Why cant you buy a PS3 off ebay (I didn't understand that part)? or private sale? there must be people selling used consoles in papers or magazines locally?
When a new DEX fw comes out we will have to see what sony has messed with to see if the PS3gen method even still works.
One day a better DEX method for playing back ups will come out for 4.XX DEX but it will always require you to have a PS3 start out on 3.55 to obtain mtldrpwn/eEID0 key etc.
