To quote: This CFW4.21 is almost the same as the 4.30 version except it have some add-ons that can't be added to ver 4.30 currently:

1- It does have the default "Install Package Files" node on XMB. (no need to have multiMAN installed before using it)
2- It does have LV1 Checks Disabled and can be used directly instead of Rogero3.55 v3.7 while downgrading with Hardware Flashers.
3- It does have the Proper Cinavia Disabled Files for the users who needs it.

This CFW was tested on most PS3 Models by different testers and no problems were encountered. But as any CFW release you must install it with caution and by following proper instructions, No one will be held responsible for any damage caused.

Rogero CFW4.30/4.21 v2.00 Details

4.30 v2.00

  • Rebuilt from scratch using OFW4.30 files only (no DEX/SEX files) with official XMB and full features working as in OFW4.30
  • All known problems like XMB icons sorting and Demo Mode issues from v 1.04 are now all gone with the use of the official XMB.
  • Removed the classical "Install Package Files" Icon from XMB to have a 100% original XMB (no DEX/SEX files used).
  • Installing Package Files can be done from multiMAN 04.12.00 (XMMB Home column or MMOS File Manager).
  • Patched LV1 to disable LV2 Protection.

  • Patched LV1 to disable SYSTEM MANAGER INTEGRITY CHECK (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles)
  • Patched LV1 Core OS Hash Check (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles)
  • Patched LV2 to add peek/poke support. (for both LV1 and LV2)
  • Patched VSH to enable ReActPSN compatibility (Allow Unsigned act.dat and *.rif files, Disable Unlinking/Deleting of act.dat)
  • Spoofed the system version to latest OFW version 4.31.
  • PSN/SEN access is available as long as the current "passphrase" still the same.
  • Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
  • It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.30 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed
  • Games can be loaded from Disc Icon (with Original game in BD) and from app_home (Disc-less, but not all games).

all CFW are the same thing except on some XMB modifications, which is doesn't matter anyway when it comes on homebrews and game backups.

I just discovered that Amazon Instant Video does not show up automatically even on OFW (whenver it was released). I just bought used PS3 Slim with OFW 4.46 and didn't see Amazon Instant Video under TV Video/Services on XMB until I signed up for and created PSN userid and went to PSN Store.

I didn't have to select from PSN Store, but then backed up and realized both "My Channels" and Amazon Instant Video were there under TV Video/Services after accessing PSN. Running Rogero 4.46 v1.01 on another Slim....

I'm going to try to find out how to "take a chance" (temporarily removing all homebrew/Multiman/Showtime/etc), renaming /dev_hdd0/GAMES to ../JEAUX (sp?) and trying to connect to PSN long enough to get Amazon Instant Video. I won't be accessing PSN for online gaming. Any tips appreciated.

I searched for the past couple of days and don't see anything except one unanswered question about the new Amazon Instant Video Service on any CFW 4.46.

I'm running Rogero 4.46 1.01 and have Netflix under TV/Video Services, but no Amazon Instant Video. Does anyone know if any of the stable 4.46 CFW releases have Amazon Instant Video? Maybe Habib 4.46 2.05?

Thanks

hey thx for the news... can you pls fix the NOTES section in the description...

only tested on ROGERO 4.30 v2.03 and v2.05 --> 4.4 and 4.46 already tested
don't delete the mod installer to delete back up your backup copy first then delete the installer via xmb (triangle)
package manager from xmb isn't working because rogero cfw but normal pkg installer still working fine! --> installing packages from xmb now working!!
