August 2, 2013 // 12:22 am - Following up on his previous version and DvLzTeam 4.41 PS3 CFW v1.00, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Alexander has released PS3 CFW 4.46 Ferrox v1.1 Custom Firmware with the changes outlined below.

MD5 CFW FERROX v1.1: 3FD3C5ACEE791647311F595E5C364A9E

To quote, roughly translated: We also thank all those who curse us and everything else! We make no distinction with anyone. All those who speak ill of us, for better or for worse will always be thanked. A special thanks goes to Acid Burn for his continuing disregard of our work

After extensive testing we finally arrived to a stable version. I thank all those who have supported us with various tests (Always remember to install the CFW Submitted by removing the Blu-ray disc).

For all those who incur 8002F157 error, it means you have not enabled MODE 'ON DEBUG ON via the qaflag and then have to do the deashing on the console. To correct this error: Install CFW 4.21 Rebug or CFW that allows you to [B]activate the qa flag and the mode 'debugging. Upgrade to OFW 3.55 for two times in a row.

That's right, to install RECOVERY twice the OFW 3.55. Proceed with the installation of any other CFW's. OPTIONAL: It is recommended that after a successful installation of the CFW from recovery run "Rebuild Database and File System" for correct operation. (Thanks to franci97)


  • Fully corrected the error in-game icons (thanks to sguerrini97)
  • Reinstated message photosensitive epilepsy.
  • Reinstated the PSN original logo.
  • Further sped up the loading of games
  • Removed the title "LDZ" from now on will be called Custom Firmware FERROX.

This CFW was tested on:

  • CECH-2001A (SLIM 120gb)
  • CECH-2004A
  • CECH-2501A
  • CECH-2002B
  • CECH-2001B (250gb SLIM)
  • CECHG04
  • CECHL04
  • CECH-2004B
  • CECH-2504A Datacode 1A

Normal chances downgrade with flasher and you'll be fine , in case your console will die some day dump eid key while on 3.55 so you will be able to retrieve data from your ps3 hdd

If you are on 3.55 Firmware you can softmod it. If you're 3.55+ you will need to install a modchip and downgrade it.

So, we should wait for next stable version?

You have to jailbreak your device.
