October 24, 2012 // 10:15 pm - Following up on the previous guide and release of Rogero PS3 CFW 4.21, here is a guide from Elle on how to get online and access PSN with PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware 4.21 using LG5Tool by Logan5.

Download: LG5Tool and Guide / LG5Tool and Guide (Mirror) / LG5Tool and Guide (Mirror #2) / Video Demo

Follow these instructions and you will be good to go:

1) Unzip the LG5Tool

2) Put the mswinsck.ocx file into the following folder: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\

3) Then go to RUN>>CMD (Vista & 7 Users run as administrator)

4) Copy and Paste the following: cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64 THEN PRESS ENTER

5) Copy and Paste the following: regsvr32 mswinsck.ocx

6) You should see the following message saying: "DllRegisterServer In mswinsck.ocx succeeded"

7) Now you can run the LG5Tool so double click on it (Vista & 7 Users run as administrator)

8) When it loads make sure you tick the box where it says: "firmware update" & Click Start Proxy

9) On the LG5Tool you will see the word "Your IP" & after you click Start proxy a ip address will appear next to "Your Ip" make a note of it as you will be needing this on the next step below

10) Go to your PlayStation 3, Go to Network settings >> Internet Connection Settings >> Choose which connection your using Wired or Wireless (For this example I'll be choosing Wireless) >> Enter Manually >> then put your details in >> When your on IP address setting choose automatic >> then when you come to following options do the following:

Set the DCHP host name = DO NOT SET >> DNS Setting = AUTOMATIC >> MTU = AUTOMATIC >> Proxy Server = Use >>

Then it will ask you to input a address, here you will input the ip address which you saw on the LG5Tool (Some may say, some maybe different), Port number is: 8080 after doing that scroll across >> UPnP = Enable >>

Then you will see press the X button to save settings click X >> Test connection and When you test the connection the first 2 Ip address & internet connection should say successful. DO NOT SIGN IN TO PSN YET!!

Then (and this part is really important guys) on the LG5Tool UNTICK where it says Firmware update >> After its unticked then you can go to sign in on PSN, If you don't untick it you might have a error on your PlayStation and if you do then you have not unticked firmware version!!

Then your good to go!! Enjoy!!

How to Get on PSN Using Yet Another Bypass 1.8 for Noobs Tutorial by MacAmb

Hey guys i just wanted to share this brief guide about using YAB 1.8 to get on PSN because a lot of members and users still don't know how to use it. In this Method PC is required.

PC Side:

1- download YAB 1.8 (above) and extract it to desktop or anywhere.
2- open That Folder and run YABStart and noting will appear just a black screen will flashes .but its thats how its running.
3- now to get your IP for your Active Network Wireless or Lan Go to Start and then click on Run then type CMD and after that type Ipconfig it should appear a list Networks now take a note the Active one and remember it its something like this: and close cmd.

Note: i have Rogero 4.31 v2.05 and also Rebug Spoofer 4.40 is installed and active.

PS3 Side:

1- Go To Setting and Internet Connection Settings > Custom > Choose either Wired Connection or Wireless > IP Address Setting Automatic > DHCP Do Not Set > DNS Setting Automatic > MTU Automatic >Proxy Server Use :filed the IP Address of your Active Connection IP in Address and use 27 in Port No. you can change it if you want in Config > UPnP Enable > now Press X to save the Setting and test the Connection.

That's it should be all set and working.. some notes: if you got IP Succeeded and Internet Connection Failed then just turn off any firewall and remember when you turn of your PC and turn on again to get on Online just use Step 2 in PC side.

change the target_id of the ps3, that will literally change the PS3's region coding, in reality, PS3 bluray player is regionless and it reads any discs regardless what region the BD/DVD movie is, the only one stopping it is the software.

Also you can just use multiman to temporarily change the blu-ray video region into something what you like until you restart your ps3, this will let you play bd movies without any further complicated software modifications.

Following up on his Rogero CEX 4.46 v1.01 PS3 CFW release, today PlayStation 3 developer Rogero (with help from Swizzy) has made available PS3 Flash Tool v1.00 with details below.

Download: PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #2) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #3) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #4) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #5) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #6) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #7) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #8) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #9)

To quote: This Tool is Swizzy's "PS3 Dump checker" merged with "PS3 Flash Auto Patcher" .

This is an "All in One" Tool now, it will do both the verification of vital Data and the Patching of the Nor/Nand Image.

It will replace Ps3 Flash Auto Patcher v4.46a from now on.

Credits to my friend "Swizzy" the well known coder for his many Tools in the Xbox360 scene

How to use:

Drag and Drop any PS3 Nor or Interleaved NAND Dump onto the "PS3_Flash_Tool_v1.0.exe" it will verify the dump, detects its type and patch it accordingly with Rogero CEX_4.46 patches, all this in less then 2 seconds.

v1.00 (initial release)

  • Merged Swizzy's PS3DumpChecker Tool with Rogero's AutoPatcher v4.46
  • Both NOR and Nand (Interleaved) Flash Dumps are supported.
  • Compatible with Win7/8 and windows XP.
  • Easy operation, just Drag and Drop the Dump over "PS3_Flash_Tool_v1.0.exe".
  • The dump will be checked to verify all sections are valid.
  • When a Dump is checked and found Valid it will Proceed to Patch it.
  • It has 2 operation Modes: Auto and Normal (can be toggled with included Registry Files). Auto Mode: will check the dump and if found valid it will patch it automatically (all in less then 2 seconds). Normal Mode: will check the dump and if found valid it will ask if you want to patch it.
