    I tested a couple games on Rogero 4.40 v1.2 discless and they worked.

    v 1.02 is not an "experimental" or "beta" CFW and not in its "initial" release. It's a fully functional CFW just like the final 4.30 v2.05. Rogero has gained a lot of experience with CFWs and by now one would expect him to have released a final CFW that'll work with everyone. So far I have not seen reports of anyone who's had an issue updating.
    You're a beast and that's that. I like guys who know there field very well.

    1. Is it difficult/tedious to resign PSN games? (As i have dozens installed already)

    2. I have fixed eboots for most of my games, will MM fix these by itself?

    3. How easy will it be to play PS2 iso's? (Didn't think this was possible until recently but still not sure how to go about it)


    one more sort of unrelated, I only have a stock 80GB HDD. If i upgraded to a 500GB would it be any different since I'm running CFW instead of OFW?

    Thanks!
    1) Yes, in your case, resigning A LOT of PSN games will be tedious. But, since your HDD is only 80GB then I'll assume that you have ~60GB of PSN games which is very little data. Ergo, my advice: delete all your PSN games and re-download them already resigned for Rogero 4.30 v2.05. The games will automatically work on the newest Rogero 4.40 v1.02. Since you have only about 50GB of games - it'll be quick to download them.

    2) Yes, ALL your games fixed for 3.55 will work right away on Rogero 4.40 v1.02. If not, all you have to do is: 1) delete game data (this won't delete game saves), 2) update them through the latest MultiMan. - Done.

    3) .ISOs have better compatibility working on Rogero 4.30 than 4.40. But it's recommended to update to the latest 4.40 because this way all latest games requiring 4.40 FW won't need to be patched anymore.

    4) If you want to upgrade your HDD you should for higher (1TB = $89 on Amazon); this way you won't have to upgrade again in a couple months - because 500GB can run out very quick. Just follow my tutorial on how to do that.

    It's never safe to go online. Whether you're on CFW 4.40 or 13.37.

    You will always eventually get banned. So play all of your games offline and that's it. If you would like to play online, buy a separate ps3 on OFW.

    NO DON'T UPDATE to 4.40 You will have to download new updates that aren't for 3.55 Fixed eboots most of them won't work so I hope you got the originals! Online will get you banned even with unban app and the like it can't unban you MAC address you will have to get a new modem for a new MAC address and it will just be banned again once you get caught again! 3.55 is much more stable 4.40 just came out its just a prototype and when you think about it 4.40 really doesn't offer anything that exquisite except you don't have to fix new games anymore in your case please stay on 3.55 Trust me I got two ps3's one 4.40 and one 3.55 I wouldn't give up my 3.55 one if my life depended on it!!!

    McDuffy sorry for the two-day late reply. You should've PM'ed me.

    All your data is stored on your HDD so you need to backup everything first. Find my tutorial on how to swap HDDs.

    I say you should first swap HDDs, re-install whatever firmware you already have, and THEN you updateto 4.40 v1.03.

    You know NOTHING. All 3.55 patched games work immediately on 4.40. ALL OF THEM (except TB patched games). ALL GAMES on 4.40 work without any patches.
