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.

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!!
