    Ok so i notice there is a new firmware for super slims called PS3HEN v2.3.1 and i thought why not upgrade from the fat ps3 which makes a loud noises from the fan from over heating and get me the super slim, but would i be able to mod games and run multi man/webman, replace the psid if it gets banned and mod on the super slim? and do the exact same stuff on the ps3 fat

    Homebrew for HEN needs to be resigned to 3.55
    Multiman working fine.
    I've not personally tested game mods but I beleive they can work. Again must be resigned to 3.55
    CFW is still king though. You will get a better experience with proper CFW.

    Ideally, if you can find an early model slim that's compatible with CFW, get that instead.

    I have phat with CFW and late model slim with HEN. I use the slim more because it doesn't run as hot as the phat. But I wish it was full CFW compatible

    Super slims never had 3.55 firmware. So that model lS NOT CFW compatible.

    Recent developments allow for direct install of CFW on phat and early slims. Look for an early slim cech20xx or cech21xx. These models are slim and CFW compatible.

    A CECH4001B is a First gen SuperSlim like mine, CECH4003A, and is Min FW version of 4.20 and is NOT CFW compatible and cannot be downgraded at all. It is a Metldr2 PS3. You WILL brick it if you tryed to install CFW on this PS3.

    Try to sort out your heating issue with your PHAT PS3 that has CFW. My CECH4003A is nothing more than a glorified media centre now and LAN network play console. As i have 2x CECH2003A Slims on CFW and don't have any intentions of using HEN on the SuperSlim.

    My late slim cech3003 is around 50c when idle and around 60c under load. With manual fan control at 30%
    Right now, firmware doesn't matter as the latest 4.84 can be exploited and CFW installed directly. No need to downgrade anymore or have ps3 on 3.55

    Just make sure you get cech20xx or cech21xx

    We don't know what will happen after 4.84. I mean if a 4.85 come (it should soon to, at least, update Bluray playback), it may not be possible to have a 4.85 HFW if $ony change the keys. So hen will not work anymore on 4.85+. But it will always be possible to create 4.85 CFW for CFW compatible models.

    No need to downgrade.
    But still has to have a minimum downgrade praxis of 3.56 and below.

    You would use psxploit to patch OFW and then install CFW like you would any normal update.

    The are:

    XMB: CELL-50 -55*C / RSX-50 -55*C
    In-Game: CELL-55-68*C / RSX- 55-68*C < dependant on what game I am playing at 36% Fan speed 42% for PS2 games.

    Both my Slims run like this but I regularly clean them out of dust at least 2 times a year and normally replace the Thermal Paste on the CELL and RSX at least 1once a year, maybe 2 years depending on how much each console gets used as I have 4 PS3's>

    2x CECH2003A w/ CFW, 1xCECH4003A w/OFW no HEN, 1x DECH4000 DEX OFW 4.84.

    The factory installed FW, ie the FW that was on the PS3 when it was brand new out of the box, must be 3.56 or below to install CFW as later models had the metldr changed to metldr2 preventing CFW installation on these PS3s.

    ALL PHAT PS3's are CFW compatible.

    PS3 Slims from CECH2000 - CECH2500 models BEFORE date code 1A > September 2010 are CFW compatible.

    Slim CECH2500 after 1A and CECH3000 - CECH4000+ are not CFW compatible.

    NO the current Tools available allow you to install CFW strainght onto 4.84 without having to downgrade. ONly poeple like me who do things old school with Hardware Flashers do this anymore and even then its not need as there are NoFSM patches that allow the install of CFW on new FW versions.
