    Slim CECH 2104A - ThanksLizZo, I taggo alone

    Homebrew Tested
    • PsnPatch v2015.11 A - Tested and 100% Working
    • SEN Enabler v5.9.2 - Tested and 100% Working
    • WebMan MOD - It works if you enabled the plugin loader from the Toolbox PsnPatch. Replacing the version of WebMan PsnPatch integrated with the 'latest version 1:43:25 seems to work properly. See Notes and Tips deeper.
    • MultiMAN v4.76.00 - Tested and Working, it needs updating to recognize the CFW 4.78. Lacking the Payload MAMBA not charge games alone.
    • IrisMAN v3.50.8 - Tested and 100% Working. Upload Games HD Internal and External.
    • IrisMAN STEALTH v3.50.7 - Tested and 100% Working. Obviously not recognize the FW 4.78, but not to say that it affects the functionality!
    • ManaGunz v1.23 - I personally works perfectly, even at SNK. Mizio argues that some games misbehave. Maybe some small configuration? I do not know. Let us know if you try it!
    • prepNTFS v1.13 - 100% Tested and Working.
    • MAMBA PRX LOADER v2.1.5 - works great. Upload Plugins and enable the Auto-Loader without problems. I apologize for the false alarm previously written! My error!!!!

    I recommend you give a glance.


    Download the CFW at the top. Rename the file .pup exactly: PS3UPDAT.PUP

    Take a USB formatted in FAT32, and create a new folder called PS3, in this please create an 'other still called UPDATE, and in latter' inseriteci the File PS3UPDAT.PUP, that would be the custom firmware.

    Insert the USB port in the far right of the Ps3.

    Be sure to: Remove any disc from the player of the PS3, Remove any games loaded with any Manager, disable the Internet connection.

    Ok. You can choose to install the CFW from the XMB or by Recovery.

    On the XMB you just go in the 'Settings', then 'System Update' and choose 'Through storage media'. Select the CFW and start the process.

    To enter recovery instead, turn off the console. Turn it back on by holding down the power button until the console is switched off again. Now turn it back on by holding down the Power button until you hear two beeps very close. Then release the Power button! Recovery time from the menu, select 'System Update' and follow the instructions.

    For a clean installation, you can install two times the CFW. You can also go back into Recovery and click Options to Rebuild Database and Restore the File System. You also have an installation that more clean and safe.

    Notes and Tips
    • Use WebMan MOD of 4.78 FERROX through PsnPatch

    We noticed that in the Application PsnPatch, the version of WebMan MOD Integrated is 43.04, and now we are even at 43.25! A little behind!

    Why yesterday I got the idea of ​​replacing the version integrated with PsnPatch latest available at the time, namely the v1.43.25, which brings with it also the compatibility with CFW 4.78! And MiZiO90 put into practice the idea.

    PsnPatch inside also has a 'Plug-Auto-Loader'. PsnPatch downloaded above. Start PsnPatch and press SELECT in the menu. Press the directional arrows 'June', 'LEFT' and 'RIGHT' one at a time. See asterisks appear close to 3 voices 'WebMan Install Plugin', 'Install XMB add-ons for WebMan' and also 'Install Plugin auto-loader'. Well, press the START button and the console will reboot should see a notification of been uploaded WebMan MOD.

    If you do not see the folder WebMan Games on XMB, make sure that you select in the Toolbox item 'Install XMB add-ons for WebMan'. To remove all, come back in the Toolbox and you will see the same items, but this time with words 'Remove' instead of 'Install'. Just press the Arrow Keys to disable what you want!


    1. First, you should know that by enabling the Plugin Loader PsnPatch, will NOT be able to connect to PSN!

    2. In Menu WebMan Games, following this guide, it will only folders PS3 and PS2, this is due to the decision of the Dev KW to integrate a lightweight version of WebMan MOD. But there can be more than enough!

    Load Backup FERROX 4.78

    Right now, we have a few Manager Compatible with 4.78. We tried everything, every Manager! The report can already be seen in the Homebrew Test.

    Then; IrisMAN used to Version 3.50.8 - Compatible with CFW 4.78, and has integrated the payload MAMBA! Use WebMan MOD to Version 1:43:25 - Compatible with CFW 4.78, follow the guide, or use MAMBA PRX Loader you can load.

    ManaGunz used to Version 1.23 - It really should not be compatible with 4.78, but it works great and loads all the games.

    Little Ingenuity

    The Package Manager seems to be allergic to SEN Enabler. In fact, using only some functions of SEN, such as Reboot, the Package Manager is replaced with the folder 'Install Package Files'. Honestly it is very strange!

    Well, I think it is everything. I recommend you read carefully the Guide to 'installation if you are new in the world of modding. And please, also read the notes and tips !!

    I can only thank again Alexander for their work! But the best is yet to come ragazzuoli! Stay here on MaxModding. We will have some nice surprises.
