• Yay we now have new CFW’s to install on our PS3′s, that is awesome, but unfortunately, that has brought with it a new wave of n00bs, now don’t get me wrong, i’m not bashing n00bs, we are all n00bish at something, but it appears that n00bs in the PS3 Scene don’t like to read information, so this is why i will sticky this on the front page for a little while, so i will get on with things:

    Q.) I’m too afraid to risk going to 4.xx CFW, how can i still have Homebrew ?
    A.) Well this is obviously the wrong thread for you, i advise you read this article regarding Jailbreaking on the stable 3.55 CFW, so go here:
    PS3 Jailbreaking F.A.Q - An Amateur Users Guide - Revised For 2012

     For those of you wanting 4.xx CFW, then continue reading below.

    Q.) I have a 3K or 4K model, can i install 4.xx CFW.
    A.) No any model in which you cannot downgrade to 3.55 or any model that has the new bootldr cannot have CFW installed, there is no timeline of when these models will be hacked or if they will ever be hacked, so go away and try and find a downgradeable model, for the rest of you lucky people with good PS3′s, continue below :)

    Q.) Can 4.xx CFW be installed on 4.xx OFW ?
    A.) NO, NO and NO, you need to DOWNGRADE to a 3.55 Firmware.

    Q.) Can i Software Downgrade from 4.xx OFW ?
    A.) NO, at the moment you MUST, use a Hardware Flasher, like Progskeet or E3, if you are comfortable with soldering, then Progskeet is the recommended device.

    Q.) Can i brick my PS3 installing a 4.xx CFW ?
    A.) Yes, as with all OFW’s or CFW’s you have a chance of bricking, with CFW’s your chances of bricking become a lot higher, when you dont read.

    Q.) Can i brick my PS3 by downgrading ?
    A.) Of course you can, but most bricks occur due to user error.

    Q.) Who is to blame for any bricks ?
    A.) You as the user are, most bricks are down to user error, take your time to read, take your time to understand, take all the time possible and have some patience, it will pay off and be rewarding in the end.

    Q.) Will there ever be a method to upgrade from straight from 4.xx OFW to 4.xx CFW ?
    A.) We are but mere mortals, we are not psychic, the only advice that one can give you is, be patient and wait until the PlayStation 4 is released.

    Q.) Will there ever be a method to Software Downgrade from 4.xx ?
    A.) We are but mere mortals, we are not psychic, the only advice that one can give you is, be patient and wait until the PlayStation 4 is released.

    Q.) So how do i do all this and do it safely ?
    A.) READ BELOW!!!!!!!!

      I really hope that there will be 4.X OFW to CFW method so I can remove this Rogeros 4.30 and reinstall it. I don't want to downgrade cause it works fine but there is just some bugs that I would like to be fixed.

      Bugs like: Inverted DVD icon and the game name is only shown as -. Whats New, PS Home and My Channels cannot be runned gives (Demo mode error) da fuq? Not all games work, some of them just crash or the PS3 freezes.
      I would also like to have original Boot logo instead of Rogero.

      a big note to all who's trying to upgrade to 4.30 cfw you need to have the original eboots of the game to able for it to work in 4.30 cfw... latest game with 3.55 fix wont work on 4.30 cfw

      what do you think guys, If someone managed a way to jailbreak 3.56+ FW with CFW 3.56+ (4.XX OFW to 4.XX CFW) is this affecting to companies like E3 and Progskeet cause their tools are not needed anymore since they don't need to downgrade to 3.55 to install 4.XX CFW? well, I guess this is stupidest question ever,huh?forgive me

      Nice one, GregoryRasputin.

      But these 4.xx CFW's do raise a question, how can they unpack and repack a 4.xx OFW but aren't able to install it on a 4.xx OFW system?

      Like the repack it with the 3.55 keys?

      Not that I need it to be installable on a higher FW, I went from 3.15 to 3.55 and sticked to that. :P

      Thats why for the time being aleast Im happy with 3.55 Rogoro's 3.7a all the games I like to play work.
      The few that dont I can wait.

      what i do is.. im on kmeaw 3.55 cfw download the qa flag install it then i updated to rogoero 3.55 v 3.7 and updated to rogero 4.30 cfw... i definitely not read in tortuga cove that you need to go back to 3.55 ofw after you installed qa flag..

      A (slightly) better question. what else is needed for ofw-cfw solution.

      a ps3 exploit? lv0.2?

      On a side note can't there be some brick protection like on the Wii with BootMii and NAND backup? :P

      If that was in the works, I am sure someone would have front paged it. That would some serious news.

      As for newer consoles (CECH-3k/4k), lv0.2 keys would need to be released/cracked. Perhaps even more than that since Sony no doubt put in extra protection.

      The thing I do not like is how the PS3Devwiki does not have almost anything on Bootldr2 or lv0.2.

      To go to any CFW you need to have the older ps3 (old bootloader) and you need to be on 3.55 (attainable via downgrade given that the lowest FW that the ps3 came with is 3.55 or below)

      All this is well and fine. However the bigger question is. Will these new CFW's work on say v4 or older Phat ps3's. As some cfw's in the past has caused phat ps3's to brick whilest others caused slims to brick. Any info on this would be helpful.

      My reason for asking is I have a 001a model which is the phat 60gb launch ps3. (yes amazingly its still going strong). I dont wanna risk bricking it. As it is on k 3.55 cfw

      For serious? The hard ones to find are the full Progskeet kits for the original NAND PS3's. I have the original 60GB NTSC CECHA01 model, and it took me forever to find a site that sells the kits because E3 doesn't work on NAND.

      Anyway, now that Progskeet v1.2 is out, there is lots of sites that have them. I dunno if we are allowed to post direct links here, so just go to Progskeet's website and then to Distributors, and find one from your country. I immediately found a full kit and ordered it. I can't wait!

      Good info that is frontpaged,
      esp. about the the downgrade from 4.x Original PS3 firmware.
      (Which is not possible)
      There are lot and lots of people on other forums who really think that you can downgrade now from 4.x Firmware since the release of the LV0 keys.
      YOU CAN NOT.

      Still I must say it from the heart. Since there is no way to downgrade from 4.x by means of software (only hardware and certain models) i'm afraid the ps3 scene and PS3hax and "ps3-other fora" are "stuck" with the people who have been folowing the scene from the beginning and wisely didn't upgrade their console and played the waiting game until that USB payload was released ....

      I mean it is already the same "blablabla for a whole year now.
      (like some already mentioned in here) well nwo i'm just ranting, Gonna stop here !

      Anyway good clear info frontpaged.

      Just Shutdown using Menu : Shutdown, or Better do an Backup of you hard disc and format you PS3, you problem to ask for rebuild will disolved.
      Here same problem when i using 3.55 but i do an format, and install 4,30 E3 CFW and no problem.
      Totally stable.
      Remember to sin you trophies before format.
      And make a backup of all you Save data to an pendrive.
      And choose an good game to play on PC because if you do an Backup with installed data from you games, or dlcs, in one HDD of 80gb you can to wait 8hours or maybe 12hours.
      PS3 is a great console but just had 256mb to do hard works.

      Well. if you follow with care no problem will you found, but i recommend you read first all post and the principal post before to install cfw.
      And all will works correctly, no problem.
      In an case of Brick you will take a big problem but you can disolve using progskeet or e3 flash.
      go ahead just download, read tutorial and install. preferable if you don know do a formatation in you ps3 but backup you data first.
      i think with this you dont will found no problem.

      Do you mean OFW 3.55, or a CFW which is 3.55 base?

      You should be able to update from any 3.55 CFW, such as KMEAW, but its best to read tutorials like this: http://www.ps3hax.net/2012/10/captai...ing-from-cfws/

      To ensure you dont make mistakes.

      Also Rogero recommended you install his v3.7 first and then update to 4.30 CFW, So I would follow his advice above all else.

      Hello. Looking for some help. I updated to 4.30 over 4.21. It updated fine no issue. My ps3 boots with the Rogero screen so I assume it updated fine, and shows 4.30 in system info. But I dont have option to install packages fun back up managers. Am I missing something. I'm not new to this I know you all can be harsh on Noobs. Any ideas?

But I dont have option to install packages fun back up managers. Am I missing something. I'm not new to this I know you all can be harsh on Noobs. Any ideas?

      Thanks
      Apparently you didn't read any of the many guides available since Rogero CFW 4.30 (v1.0) was released, none of the guides says to install 4.30 over 4.21.

      Any problem that arises because of what you did, its because you didn't follow the installation instructions, its not a problem with the CFW.

      I don't know what was your reason, sorry if it sounds rude, but apparently, my assumption is, maybe laziness?

      Anyway, the proper procedure was:

      1- Downgrade CFW 4.21 to CFW 3.55 by using Rogero's special downgrade PUP (MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db) via Recovery Mode boot.
      2- Install "Toggle QA" + run "Toggle QA" + confirm QA Flag key combo over Network Settings item on the XMB.
      3- Install Rogero CFW 3.55 CFW (v3.7) (MD5: 8f8166b25d6bed891f292c77de5c4b28) via Recovery Mode boot.
      4- Confirm QA key combo is still working over Network Settings item on the XMB.
      5- Install Rogero CFW 4.30 (v1.0 / Patched) (MD5: 7ADF524594D46EF669F4C64E07462631) via Recovery Mode boot.

      Are you serious?...yes, installing a CFW will "Jailbreak" your PS3, and allow you to enjoy of the many things available on the PS3 Scene, specially Homebrew.

      For more info, look around many, many useful and organized threads on the respective forum sections.

      First of all, you definitely are presenting lack of knowledge of what has happened since the begining of the PS3 scene, so please before you come here with less than 10 posts, and talk non-sense, go read the forum, do some research, take notes, and then come back if you still think the PS3 hasn't been hacked.

      Btw, the statement "PS3 has been hacked", is not a "thought", it is a "fact", what use you find of the available features it provides while hacked, its you personal perspective.

      I can give the latest Wacom Intuos Digital Tablet to a 3 years old baby, a powerful computer with all the digital Illustration programs already installed and registered, but at the end of the day, what can the 3 years old do with all that advanced equipment?...you got it, nothing, because he is not yet prepared and doesn't have the proper capacity and knowledge to use them for what they were made for.

      Hope you have it clear now, the fact that you don't see anything useful on the current PS3 Hacks, doesn't mean it hasn't been done.

      SeeYa!

      Btw, what is the point of trolling with that BS here? if you don't like the PS3 Hacking Scene status, nobody if forcing you to stay around and suffer (or whatever you feel).

      Good luck with whatever you're trying to achieve, clearly is not working.

      SeeYa!

      You didn't do anything wrong, the QA key combo just doesn't work on 4.30, so you cannot access it anymore.

      But you can still downgrade "if needed" by using Rogero special downgrade PUP, if at some point you want to do it, read one of the many verified guides to do so before proceeding.

      In case you didn't see it here is the original Rogero CFW 4.30 post at Tortuga Cove (updates, info, etc are there).

      Hello I never upgraded but went from OFW 3.55 to Rebug CFW 3.55 will dehasing be needed?

      Also I read that Toggle QA PKG needs to be installed. I already have the Debug settings icon under my network settings icon. Within the Debug settings is Edy Debug. Do I still have to follow the steps for a Toggle QA PKG?

      Thanks, for any help

I was here before toggle aq and dehasing was here, so i just don't wanna break my ps3. Is that so hard to understand? Just forget it, if u not willing to help.

      Because what you asked is already answered in this tutorial and has been answered many times on this forum, why not read the tutorial that is written for you, instead of acting like an idiot.

      Yes you are right, this is the "help section", not the "Help im a retard and don't know how to read properly section".

      I wasn't the one who started with the name calling, or swearing. You was....Look you've even done it again with the 'retard'. What gives you the right to do that? I think you need to take ur own advice.

      I've done it now anyway, im on 4.30 custom firmware. All you had to do was answer my question and none of this would of happened. Treat people the way you would like to be treated 'mate'.

      All you had to do was READ and not be ignorant and stupid, seriously one such as yourself, whom comes from the country that invented the English language, should have a far superior knowledge of English reading skills.

      Now stop crying like a little baby and when someone goes to the length of helping people, don't sh*t on them by asking dumb questions.

      I dont give a flying f*ck how i am treated, i do care about how my help is treated though and i care about how my fellow members help is treated, you didn't treat my help and advice very well and you didn't treat the help and advice to the other members who i used in this article.....

      I have spent 4 hours trying to downgrade from 4.21. I checked the MD5's of my files,double checked QA flags etc made sure no discs were present. Yet, when i used Condor updater to get to the recovery menu, it never worked! After coming close to giving up,i decided why not repeat the procedures i have tried and eliminate the Condor step(doing the hold down button method). All I can say is, i am now on Keamw 3.55. So if this helps anybody avoid an issue...Your Welcome.

      No faq i have seen, mentioned any specific PS3 model when using Condor Updater. More to the point, it worked partially. So, i thought mentioning it would be helpful.

      It is highly recommended to downgrade to 3.55 ofw or 3.55 cfw before upgrading. Some have said they went right from 4.21 to 4.30...yet why risk a brick trying it.

      Wanted to make sure. After all there are so many tools and things popping out that only God knows what they do. Last time I checked that Kakarot guy was working on some CFW and it did not allow jailbreaking, so let's say I'm just a bit of a loss with what does what.

      I have my hdd plugged in usb000 and a thumb drive in usb001 maybe that's why I'm getting a black screen...will test out when I get home.

      Update: so I tested it out and yes you are right if 2 externals are plugged in during boot games don't work and boot up with one hdd and it's fine it also seems fine to plug in the second hdd after boot also (for me anyway) but for now I will boot up with no external and plug in once the system has loaded. +1 for you

      For those of you resigning EBOOT's for 4.21 use, I noticed that the content id can be gotten from the EBOOT itself rather than having to use PKG_ContentID.

      So if you no longer have the pkg file, here's a small program I wrote up to get the content id from the eboot file.

      Just drag the EBOOT.BIN onto the file "get_content_id.exe". I included the c source file in case anyone was interested.

      well I'm over my first hurdle >.< looks much more like what i was expecting, got a PSP folder with the update,PUP file in it, a multiman pkg and a showtime pkg.

      I'm currently on kmeau 3.55 and have been for ages, unsure what firmware i started on but was definately lower, have never downgraded or used a flasher, can i go straight from this cfw to the 4.30 one or would you advice going to the rogero 3.55 first?

      Do i need to find all my old orignal eboots, as got most my games on my external? will i still be able to watch .avi and .mp4 through multiman and o i need to backup my games saves?

      sorry for all the questions.

      2: 3.55 cfw rogero v3.7 -> toggle qa-> 3.55 cfw rogero v3.7 AGAIN -> toggle qa still working-> 4.30 cfw rogero

      3: 3.55 cfw rogero v3.7 -> toggle qa still working-> 3.55ofw -> 4.30 cfw rogero

      any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I've succesfully updated my system to Rogero CFW 4.30, but I'm facing some trouble to make 2 games work:
      - Devil May Cry HD Collection;
      - White Knight Chronicles (US).
      I've already updated the White Knight Chronicles and it still dont start: I open it with Multiman, than choose the game and only shows a black screen and returns to PS3 game menu...

      Does anybody is having the same issues? Ty.

      I GET BLACK SCREEN WITH X / Y GAME AFTER INSTALLING ROGERO CFW 4.XX

      On this main thread there is a link with useful tips, if only people could dedicate some time to read...

      Anyway here you have some relevant tips...

      Tips #6 � Making sure game backups are correct

      - Make sure all games are unmodified and without 3.55 patches (SPRX/ EBOOT / SDAT / etc)
      - Make sure you remove all Game updates from XBM->Game Data Utility, to make sure you didn�t install any patched ones.
      - Make sure you activate BD-Mirror on multiMAN for all games, you have to configure each game options with it.
      - Make sure to use BD-ROM emulator (Standard) on multiMAN settings.
      And a new tip that some people reported...

      - Make sure to have only one USB HDD connected at a time, users are reporting problem when having more than 1 USB HDD connected.

      PS: Guys, the reason why I don't ask so many questions is not because I'm different that everyone else, it is because I choose to READ, and research before asking something that might be in front of my face, practically. No offense intended.


      SeeYa!

      i would suggest restoring the ps3, or rebuilding database and if that doesnt work then get a hardware flasher like the e3 flasher or progskeet

      General question for all - has anybody encountered a problem where as a game is loading game data, it stops , then informs you that it was, disc read error - had this with my slim 160Gb CEX 4.30 MM 4.08.01 whilst loading dishonored (proper-duplex).
      Any ideas as to the cause / solution - greatly appreciated.

      FIXED: I have to hit the refresh button Everytime! I go to my Inbox to see what is actually there...
      I deleted my messages, went elsewhere, then back to my Inbox only to find all of the messages I just deleted... so I hit refresh and all of them where gone... so I repeated the process to see if it happens again, it did.. don't know if this is affecting anyone else but hit refresh if unsure I guess

      Question 2: Is there any signs of PS2 compatabilty in the near future?

      AND TO FINISH, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKYOU TO ALL DEVS FOR ALL THERE HARD WORK.........

      Yes! I got out of the 4.21-3.55.pup from rogero Rebug THankyou so much! Used 9.99 downgrader went to regero a2.7 3.55 and then to this new REX 3.55 from rebug! I would say it was very possible to downgrade from a higher ofw if you used this 999 downgrader. TO me this file was extremely helpful I didn't want to pay someone to flash it! Hopefully someone with a flasher would try this out and then we wouldn't need flashers it would be a complete software downgrade from any firmware Glory be to the hackers of PS3s!!!

      Well I just dropped in to say thank you to GregoryRasputin.

      I had a fat ps3 3.55 before but then go ylod..Reballing it didn't not pan as I ripped pads when lifting the rsx chip..

      Anway finally got the E3 after awhile of waiting and waiting for progskeet 1.2, come back here to load up ultimate fool proof guide downgrading tut and I'm forced to view this page..Which I might add was awesome to be forced to view as I was just going to load up a rebug firmware.

      I've successfully downgraded 4.25 to 3.55 and am now running Rogero CEX-4.30 v1.00 / multiMAN ver 04.08.01 / Showtime 04.01.208..I realize alot get worried about bricks but if you read, almost and if not everything is on this site and you should have no problems if you just read enough and follow directions

      Looking forward to my second downgrade tomorrow

      Thanks again GregoryRasputin and to others that made it possible..Also to ps3hax.net for all the useful info I've obtained in as little as 8 hours to perform this install

      Hi, can anyone help with a PS3 Problem.

      I updated fine too Rogero CFW 4.30, was working fine until a game locked up and PS3 couldn't be shut down properly. Now when PS3 boots it's stuck in a loop trying to fix, as it says it corrupt. Is there any fixes for this. Thx in advance, Marty.

      Think I've sorted PS3 out, I just went to recovery menu and rebuilt database. Seems to have worked.

      I had a fat ps3 3.55 before but then go ylod..Reballing it didn't not pan as I ripped pads when lifting the rsx chip..

      Anway finally got the E3 after awhile of waiting and waiting for progskeet 1.2, come back here to load up ultimate fool proof guide downgrading tut and I'm forced to view this page..Which I might add was awesome to be forced to view as I was just going to load up a rebug firmware.

      I've successfully downgraded 4.25 to 3.55 and am now running Rogero CEX-4.30 v1.00 / multiMAN ver 04.08.01 / Showtime 04.01.208..I realize alot get worried about bricks but if you read, almost and if not everything is on this site and you should have no problems if you just read enough and follow directions

      Looking forward to my second downgrade tomorrow

      Thanks again GregoryRasputin and to others that made it possible..Also to ps3hax.net for all the useful info I've obtained in as little as 8 hours to perform this install
      im guessing these are what versions i should be on??? is 3.55cfw rebug any good anymore?

      There is a huge f*cking differnce between n00bs and retards and you aren't smart enough to be a n00b, there are many n00bs on this forum and their IQ's are ten times what yours is.

      There are many n00bs whom i have helped and i don't mind helping them, but there is a huge f*cking differnce between helping and spoon feeding and i refuse to spoon feed people as dumb as you.

      I'm not communist and i have no problem with people speaking freely, i know you are hugely retarded, but what the f*ck do you think you are doing now ?

      Why don't you go back to sucking your mommas titties and creating lame ass GTA mods, leaving PS3 Hacking for the big boys with brains.

      Hi there everybody firstly i would like to say "yeah i am nOOb back on the scene" to see what i can do with my ps3 now. And as it turns out the scene has excelled and how much out of touch have i been I have been on a 3.55cfw for a good while now (but my six year old wants more lol).

      Now i have not come on here to ask a question (even though i was on the verge of) but would like to say that everything that gregoryrasputin has said is true (read the instructions as they are self explanary) if i can do it, i think you lot can .

      And to finish i can see why people get confused and are not sure what to but all i can say is life is too short and its not the end of the world, so read the instructions and read them again and then read what people post, because there is alot of clever people out there and they now there s***. So if you do it right it will work as it has worked for me .

      P.S this is my first post on a forum ever and GregoryRasputin devs and posters you are legends

      I read every single word and followed [MENTION=185665]itskamel[/MENTION] 's easy steps.
      Even a total n00b like me managed to go from TBCFW to OFW 3.55 to Rex -Rebug CFW 4.21! And am now able to play all the new games and go online.
      Props to you sir!

      Q.) I'm too afraid to risk going to 4.xx CFW, how can i still have Homebrew ?
      A.) Well this is obviously the wrong thread for you, i advise you read this article regarding Jailbreaking on the stable 3.55 CFW, so go here:
      PS3 Jailbreaking F.A.Q - An Amateur Users Guide - Revised For 2012

      For those of you wanting 4.xx CFW, then continue reading below.

      Q.) I have a 3K or 4K model, can i install 4.xx CFW.
      A.) No any model in which you cannot downgrade to 3.55 or any model that has the new bootldr cannot have CFW installed, there is no timeline of when these models will be hacked or if they will ever be hacked, so go away and try and find a downgradeable model, for the rest of you lucky people with good PS3's, continue below

      Q.) Can 4.xx CFW be installed on 4.xx OFW ?
      A.) NO, NO and NO, you need to DOWNGRADE to a 3.55 Firmware.

      Q.) Can i Software Downgrade from 4.xx OFW ?
      A.) NO, at the moment you MUST, use a Hardware Flasher, like Progskeet or E3, if you are comfortable with soldering, then Progskeet is the recommended device.

      Q.) Can i brick my PS3 installing a 4.xx CFW ?
      A.) Yes, as with all OFW's or CFW's you have a chance of bricking, with CFW's your chances of bricking become a lot higher, when you dont read.

      Q.) Can i brick my PS3 by downgrading ?
      A.) Of course you can, but most bricks occur due to user error.

      Q.) Who is to blame for any bricks ?
      A.) You as the user are, most bricks are down to user error, take your time to read, take your time to understand, take all the time possible and have some patience, it will pay off and be rewarding in the end.

      Q.) Will there ever be a method to upgrade from straight from 4.xx OFW to 4.xx CFW ?
      A.) We are but mere mortals, we are not psychic, the only advice that one can give you is, be patient and wait until the PlayStation 4 is released.

      Q.) Will there ever be a method to Software Downgrade from 4.xx ?
      A.) We are but mere mortals, we are not psychic, the only advice that one can give you is, be patient and wait until the PlayStation 4 is released.

      Q.) So how do i do all this and do it safely ?
      A.) READ BELOW!!!!!!!!

      Hello friends good morning!!!!
      I'm in Brazil and did the upgrade by following this tutorial.
      All games are working perfectly! All releases!
      Just found a strange behavior. When connecting the PS3 with a blue ray disc within the original console it automatically starts the game. This is typical of the new firmware of SONY or is it a bug?

      Sorry for my bad english!

      might be worth getting it fixed, then if its done right with solder, it would last longer i believe

      I don't want to make a new thread and as this thread is dedicated to us noobs I think it's okay to ask this here: How long do you think it will take (now that LV0 keys are out) for CFWs to appear that can be installed on 4.XX OFW consoles without having to use a dongle to downgrade?

      EDIT: Never mind. When I read the article the first time I could swear I didn't see the point that answered my question. Sorry
      Thanks a lot for your guide.

      I was wondering if the darkeboot fixer can fix eboots that have been encrypted for the true blue firmware. Like, if i have already replaced the original eboot with the true blue eboot, could it fix it back to the original eboot. The game being TomClancy'sGhostRecon Future Soldier.

      So im just now getting back into the hacking scene and need a bit of help, well more like correct information. This guide states that you cannot downgrade 4.xx with software but I've ran across more recent posts on other sites saying that you can. These other sites are inferior to ps3hax so I wanted to verify this before attempting.

      One of the many other sites with this theory:

      You must have took my "ass" as an insult when I was simply using it as an abbreviation of his name.
      Sorry for the confusion.
      I've seen posts about fake CFW, though like I said I have not been on these sites for some time and didn't know if these recent ones were also fake.
      Hence why I asked.
      But if assitch already knew that the CFW in those posts were fake and still made them out to be "legit" then I believe he can indeed be classified as an ass.

      Great guide btw.

      hi I'm currently on 3.41 with dongle and would appreciate any advice as to which CFW is best. Also can I just install the 4. CFW straight from 3.41 or is it best to go to 3.55 and then upgrade to 4.x

      I'm glad some progress has been made, but getting systems on OFW 3.55+ to CFW will be the real accomplishment when it happens, and if it ever happens. It will be like a thunderclap across the whole scene.

      I have a fat PS3 CECHG01. I had CFW 3.55 on it, but when I was deployed to Afghanistan my dumb kids updated it. It's on OFW 4.31 now.

      Kind of sad to see it with the old Regero and Multiman icons still there, but nothing works.

      I guess I will just have to order an E3 Flasher. Annoying...

      hey i have a few questions:

      1) does any one know if i update to rogero v1.04(this is the latest version right?) will the backups in my hdd still be there. i really don't want to re-rip my 10 games again.

      2) and if i have to delete the game eboots/fixes i placed inside to play new games.

      3) also, i'm currently on kmew 3.55 do i have to revert to ofw3.55 to update to rogero 4.30 cfw or can i just update directly from kmew via recovery.

      before you say to use the search function i have and couldn't find the answers to these questions not even itskamel mentions these in his noob tutorial.

      Hi Guys,

      Thanks Gregory for the Work.

      One Question, must i, and if, how to, save my Trophies, before going from
      3.55kmeaw to 4.30CFW?

      Thanks in Advance

      Edit:
      Nevermind, did the Upgrade, worked flawless from 3.55kmeaw, syncing trophies with PSN now.

      Just another thing, how to install packages.
      If i copy them through MM/FTP under /dev_hdd0/packages they are not visible in XMB, also when i plug in an USBstick (tried different sticks) with an folder packages ?!?!?!

      This was very dangerous of me, but after owning so many PS3's over the years I went ahead and decided to upgrade ROGERO from XMB and not recovery mode because I had installed petiboot. Petiboot would boot and not recovery menu, so I booted into gameos and then upgraded from 3.55 to Rogero 4.30. I'm just going to throw it out there, that it upgraded without a hitch, but I certainly recommend downloading boot_gameos.pkg and using that to boot into recovery. Thanks to Rog and the team. I waited patiently booting Ubuntu/Gentoo on 3.55, but I'm in the need of occupying my time with something else.

      Put the .pkg files on the root of the memory stick, not in a folder.

      I'm on 3.41 OFW . To install 4.30 CFW I need to upgrate to 3.55 OFW ? Or I can install 4.30 CFW directly from 3.41 OFW ??

      Personally I think you should update to 3.55 first.

      I think logically this 4.30 CFW is based on 3.55, and was conceived around people starting off at 3.55 CFW/OFW.

      Just my 2 cents.

      Hello,

      1) I have some confusions and i would like to clear them all. My PS3 stats that i am having 3.55 Firmware under the software version tab. It means i am having OFW instead of any other CFW? Correct me if i am wrong.

      2) Rogero Manger is there for playing games and i found this information while click on "information":

      Title: Rogero Manger
      Parental Control: Level 1
      Version: 1.02
      Size: 364 MB




      So you got all the info from my side. Now tell me that:

      1) My Firmware is OFW or CFW?

      2) Can i install this on my PS3?

      Code:

      3) If i can that what is the advantages of the above ^ CFW? I am sorry but i couldn't found that what this CFW can do.

      4) Can i play latest games on it without waiting for Eboot/patches/TB?

      5) If i would upgrade to that CFW so will i be able to play my old games on it? 3.55 games i mean?

      6) Can i enjoy the ONLINE GAMING FEATURE using this CFW which I'm lacking in my current FM (I still don't know that is it OFW or CFW this is why i'm using FM)

      Maybe these questions Sounds Noob to you but it would be much appreciated if you could clear all the queries & confusions.

      Thank you

      Hello. I was wondering, I plan on getting the e3 flasher for the ps3 fat model. And my model is CECHP-01. I wanted to know is this downgrade able? I am also on firmware 4.30. I've heard people saying it is doable and other saying no. Can somebody please clear this up. Also the firmware that came with the ps3 when I bought it was under 3.55. Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong thread. any help is appreciated. Again thank you everyone for the help

      CECHP01 is downgradeable with e3 flasher. I have done a few of those. And the firmware doesn't matter. You can downgrade with a flasher from any firmware.

      You must be thinking of the newer slims that did not come with 3.55 or lower new. Like the 3000 and 4000 models.
      But if you are on 3.55cfw, then you are good to update to Rogero 4.30 v2.03.

      can I go from 4.21 rogero cex CFW to 4.31 OFW directly?
      if u really wanna go clean i would go like this just to make it perfect legit again

      downgrade back to 355 first using rogero's 421to355.pup
      install rogero 3.7
      console i think is QA flagged?!
      install ofw355 2 times
      install kmeaw and reset/remove qa flag
      install ofw355 again just to clean NOR/NAND flash with clean ofw355 files
      finally update to OFW4.30

      that way u have clean PS3 with clean ofw files on ur ps3 flash/hdd

      maybe a long way but garanteed it's clean..... and not sure if u can reset/remove qa flag on ofw355, then again i like doing this the long route

      i wouldn't go straight to OFW4.30 from rogero...if it works? maybe someone can verify this....

      totally missed it...incase u have not figured it out, after the downgrader/hybrid, first install rogero 3.7(4.25 spoofed), if the qa flag is set already... then install OFW3.55 via the Recovery , always install the firmware via recovery if a spoofer is enabled, i'm guessing u try via XMB..thats why it wont take the firmware...and reset the qa token, the last isn't required maybe...but i would reset it if u decide to go official again..keep in mind the value drops significant after going clean right
