Cage, what makes you feel this way?
Obviously he doesn't know who is Rogero, or what he has done, that is the most probable answer of why he doesn't trust the CFW. If he does "know" Rogero then I don't know why he doesn't trust the CFW honestly xD (beta testing was over long time ago).
I have done several installations of Rogero CFW's and haven't found issues, I even changed HDD and followed the proper procedure and didn't get any problems at all.
People who usually don't update at this point is because they are scared of doing something wrong and messing their PS3.
The only way a user can get problems with any firmware, is if they don't read and follow each of the installation / preparation instructions.
Staying in CFW 3.55 at this point is like the following analogy:
"If you have sex without the proper protection (condom), you can get many deceases or even worse if you have sex (with a woman) she could get pregnant."
By this analogy some people will be so scared that they will not even try to have sex (even when they want to).
So, right now people are like:
"If you upgrade from CFW 3.55 and you don't follow the proper procedures, you could end up having different problems with your PS3, or even worse it could get bricked."
Again, people get scared, prefer to not have sex...oops, not upgrading to the latest CFW (lol xD) that allows you to basically do everything you do on 3.55 (plus more) but without having to waste your precious lifetime doing patches, looking for them (wasting bandwith), etc...
