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 add peek/poke support to replace hvc 182/183 (multiMAN Direct Disc Access is now working fine with CFW4.21/4.30 v2.00)
  • 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).
  • Current 3.55 homebrew applications can't be loaded on this CFW, applications must be re-signed properly for FW4.21/4.30

From what CFW ? If you are on 4.xx CFW it shouldn't be a problem. If you are on 3.55 try to install rogero 3.55 v3.7a first and finally 4.xx CFW.

Following up on his previous releases, PlayStation 3 developer Rogero has now updated his PS3 CFW to Rogero CEX 4.46 v1.01 which simply adds Toolbox for StealthMan.

RB446DKIPF.PUP Download Mirrors:


PUP MD5: aced1947b311c205a3b82f3d26fbf8b3
PUP Size: 194 MB (203,643,442 bytes).

Some additional revisions from Rogero:

  • PS3UPDAT_Rogero_CEX_4.46_v1.01a_no_RSOD_Patch.PUP (MD5: c42b0804f882b28d0db91527415d5222) - Here's a CFW4.46 v1.01a build without the RSOD patch so you can try it out with the same game.
  • PS3UPDAT_Rogero_CEX_4.46_v1.01_BD_BT_Updates_Enabled.PUP (MD5: 6141d035a43a3958779b2aa7bdd4e3b2) - This PUP have nothing changed from v1.01 except the installation script that won't skip installing the Bluetooth and BR drive firmwares, so no worries you'll be fine.
  • PS3UPDAT_Rogero_CEX_4.46_v1.01_Downgrader.PUP (MD5: e66fa806125bd9f0b7698f00324a4cd1) - Here's the PUP that have 9.99 as the built in version, it's basically a 4.46 downgrader, it will install on any version CFW up to 9.99 and will get you back on 4.46, in your case where your PS3 have 3.56 minver you can't use the normal 3.55 Downgrader, so this PUP will be a simple solution for you to get on CFW4.46.

    N.B: Please people don't use this PUP for normal Updates, it will fill your syscon version with 9.99 and you need to Downgrade back to 3.55 and dehash in case this PUP was used, but for 3.56 Minver users the 3.55 Downgrader can't be used, that's why I posted this PUP just to help him install CFW4.46 without going into much details on how to dehash the 3.56Minver PS3.

Rogero 4.46 1.01 PS3 CFW Features:

[*]ReActPSN patch to work offline without the need to log into PSN at all.
[*]noBD/noBT patches to allow installation on consoles with broken BluRay Drive or Bluetooth board.
[*]This CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over OFW3.55 or any CFW ver
