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.

  • For details about Updating from CFW3.55/4.21 to CFW4.30 Please read the Update Guide below
  • For details about Downgrading back to CFW/OFW3.55 Please read the Downgrade Guide below
  • For details about Recovering from a Brick please check this thread: Brick-Recovery Procedure from CFW4.21 back to CFW3.55

Rogero CEX-4.30 v1.00 Details

  • Compatibility problem with some PS3 models is now fully fixed.
  • XMB Icons problem from in-game PS button is now fixed.
  • PSN/SEN access is available as long as the current "passphrase" still the same.
  • Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
  • It was tested by hundreds of testers on all PS3 models (FAT & Slim) and no problems were encountered.
  • 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

ATTENTION:

1- This CFW doesn't have LV1 checks disabled and can't be installed on Downgraded PS3 consoles unless you have Dehashed/Reset Syscon Properly (if you're not sure about your PS3, Dehash it anyway to avoid any risk) Link: Dehashing Tutorial

2- Always make a NOR/Nand dump using multiMAN or memdump before installing any CFW to have a recovery backup in case of any bricks. Having a valid NOR/Nand dump is an essential step before upgrading, because you will always have a way to recover (using hardware flashers) when you have a valid dump.

** A Hardware Flasher alone without a valid dump may not fix your bricked PS3 **

3- The QA flag must be always Enabled on your PS3 for safer upgrading/downgrading operations. Link: toggle_qa.pkg

4- Always use the Recovery Menu while installing this CFW to avoid possible bricks (XMB update works, but Recovery Menu is safer).

6- Please Check the MD5 of the downloaded PUP file before installing any CFW to avoid possible bricks.

7- DO NOT HAVE DISC IN PS3 WHEN UPDATING FIRMWARES..As the PS3 will take the UPDATE from the DISC First.

8- You need to already be on 3.55 to install this. Installing from any firmware other than 3.55 will simply not work




Downgrading back to 3.55 is always possible using the following steps:

  • Download the Downgrader PUP: Downgrader PUP mirror / Downgrader PUP
    Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
  • Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
  • While on Rogero CFW4.30, go to System Update from XMB and install the Downgrader PUP.
  • After the Downgrader PUP installs you'll be on a hybrid CFW3.55 that will still shows ver4.21/4.30 from system settings.

Enable QA flag by following these steps:

1- Download the Rebug QA_Toggle package from here: toggle_qa.pkg
2- Put the "toggle_qa.pkg" on USB and Install it on the PS3.
3- Run the "Rebug Toggle QA" from XMB, the screen will go Black and you will see HDD Led activity then if all went fine you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and the PS3 will Restart back to XMB.
4- If you want to make sure QA flag was set, go to "Network Settings" then apply the following key combo (all at the same time):

L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down

You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.

  • Now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" Link: Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
  • Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
  • Once you're back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install any CFW 3.55/4.21/4.30.

Useful Hint: you can simply use CondorStrike's Updater package from XMB to enter Recovery Menu directly from XMB without going through several restart/shutdown sequences. Link: Condor Updater v2.0




Updating from CFW3.55/4.21 to the CFW4.30 v1.00 should be done using the following steps:

1- Proper Way (CFW4.21 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.30)

  • Downgrade back to ver3.55 using the guide above.
  • Once on Rogero CEX3.55 v3.7 you can update again from Recovery Menu into the new CFW4.30 v1.00.

2- Alternative Way #1 (CFW4.21 --> XMB Update --> CFW4.30)

  • You can try updating from CFW4.21 to CFW4.30 v1.00 from XMB by using the "System Update --> Update via Storage Media".
  • If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the Alternative Way #2.

3- Alternative Way #2 (CFW4.21 --> Recovery Menu --> CFW4.30)

  • You can try updating from CFW4.21 to CFW4.30 v1.00 from Recovery Mode.
  • If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the first Proper Way (CFW4.21 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.30)

Changing/Upgrading the HDD while on Rogero CFW4.30 should be done using the following steps:

  • Download the Downgrader PUP: Downgrader PUP mirror Link: Downgrader PUP Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
  • Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
  • Swap the current HDD with the New HDD, Turn the PS3 on, follow screen instructions and let it install the Downgrader CFW.
  • After the Downgrader CFW installs you'll be on a hybrid CFW3.55 that will still shows ver4.21 from system settings.

Enable QA flag by following these steps:

1- Download the Rebug QA_Toggle package from here: toggle_qa.pkg
2- Put the "toggle_qa.pkg" on USB and Install it on the PS3.
3- Run the "Rebug Toggle QA" from XMB, the screen will go Black and you will see HDD Led activity then if all went fine you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and the PS3 will Restart back to XMB.
4- If you want to make sure QA flag was set, go to "Network Settings" then apply the following key combo (all at the same time):

L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down

You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.

  • Now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" Link: Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
  • Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
  • Once you're back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install any CFW 3.55/4.21/4.30.

Hi, I am a newbie when it comes to jailbreak a ps3. I have downloaded this CFW in my USB key and it detected it with the CFW in my super slim 4k. After reading User Agreement, I see that it says that it's unauthorized to install software or put hardware that will make me have cracked games.

But I think it's saying that as default. Then I read that there is Stealthman, Toolbox and mutliman stuff. What do they do? And will I be to install a software in this CFW that will make me have free games? Help me quick pl0x! Thanks!

I formatted my system but it got interrupted due to power failure and the ps3 asks for a software update file? My ps3 was jailbreaked and was running rogero cfw earlier. Thanks

Can i use this file as a update without risks?

yes you can do that via recovery menu without a flasher (its much dangerous to do things via flasher, even in downgrading process, that's why a good NAND/NOR backup is necessary before doing anything on flash) but I dont see reason why you need to downgrade (except if you want some homebrews that only works on certain firmware version) specially if you use your PS3 mainly for backups

Hello, basically i wanted to update my ps3 cfw i am on Rogero 4.41 v1.0 but is it fine to update over cfw, i haven't done this in a while since new games are coming out and required the 4,46 fw i need to update or is it best to not to because since there's a few stables cfw so what would you all suggest to do? the best alternative ?

also once i update can i revert back to some other cfw like if i am not satisfied can i revert back to Rogero 4.41 or i have to use a flasher to get back to stock and re do the whole process again.

I had the same problem with rogero 4.46 so I went back to rogero 4.40 and the problem was gone. My ps3 is banned so really no reason for me to update anyways.

Hi All,

I have 2 PS3 with the same Rogero 4.46 v1.01 and the latest MM 04.46.03.

When I try to update a game within MM, it finds the update. When I go to d/l it, I get this error message on ONE of the machines.

"Please attach USB storage device to save update data and try again!" This happens on all games, regardless of whether it's installed internal / external or game disc.

Doesn't matter if I do exactly what it says or not. It won't go any further. Any suggestions? The other machine works fine for updates...

Don't get it...

Thanks!
