For all the users that are having the Singstar Icon on XMB, please know that this is a pure Original FW 4.30/4.31 feature and it seems it is only showing for Europe users when they connect the PS3 to the Internet.

Here's two links to the SingStar problem with OFW4.30 :


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.

This CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over any OFW3.55/CFW3.55/CFW4.21/CFW4.30. For details about Downgrading back to CFW/OFW3.55 Please read the Downgrade Guide below.

Rogero CFW4.30 v2.03 Details

  • 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 previous versions are now gone with the use of the official XMB.
  • New Improved "Install Package Files" Application added to XMB instead of using the traditional DEX Icon, to have a 100% original XMB.
  • Once the PS3 is booted, select the [app_home/PS3_GAME] Icon and It will change automatically to [* Install Package Files]

  • After loading a Game, you can restart the PS3 again to have [* Install Package Files] back on XMB
  • You can also Install the new stand-alone XMB application from Deank --> [* Install Package Files] to have it showing permanently on XMB.
  • [* Install Package Files] function supports:
  • up to 256 pkg files
  • split pkg files
  • sorting
  • queued PKG indication (in red)
  • multipart (split) PKG indication (in yellow)
  • copy/transfer progress
  • Scanned locations: /dev_usb*** /dev_hdd0 /dev_bdvd in /PKG /packages and root folders
  • Split files format: .0 - .63 / .66600 - .66663 / .001 - .064
  • CFW Structure fixed to match the OFW 4.xx Structure:

  • HDD can be swapped/changed and the CFW4.30 v2.03 will re-install without any problem.
  • 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 CFW4.30 v2.03)
  • 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)
  • The CFW can be used directly for Downgrading with Hardware flashers /Flashing from FSM/Exiting from FSM, all works fine.
  • 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)

  • 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

change the target_id of the ps3, that will literally change the PS3's region coding, in reality, PS3 bluray player is regionless and it reads any discs regardless what region the BD/DVD movie is, the only one stopping it is the software.

Also you can just use multiman to temporarily change the blu-ray video region into something what you like until you restart your ps3, this will let you play bd movies without any further complicated software modifications.

Following up on his Rogero CEX 4.46 v1.01 PS3 CFW release, today PlayStation 3 developer Rogero (with help from Swizzy) has made available PS3 Flash Tool v1.00 with details below.

Download: PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #2) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #3) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #4) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #5) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #6) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #7) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #8) / PS3 Flash Tool v1.00.rar (Mirror #9)

To quote: This Tool is Swizzy's "PS3 Dump checker" merged with "PS3 Flash Auto Patcher" .

This is an "All in One" Tool now, it will do both the verification of vital Data and the Patching of the Nor/Nand Image.

It will replace Ps3 Flash Auto Patcher v4.46a from now on.

Credits to my friend "Swizzy" the well known coder for his many Tools in the Xbox360 scene

How to use:

Drag and Drop any PS3 Nor or Interleaved NAND Dump onto the "PS3_Flash_Tool_v1.0.exe" it will verify the dump, detects its type and patch it accordingly with Rogero CEX_4.46 patches, all this in less then 2 seconds.

v1.00 (initial release)

  • Merged Swizzy's PS3DumpChecker Tool with Rogero's AutoPatcher v4.46
  • Both NOR and Nand (Interleaved) Flash Dumps are supported.
  • Compatible with Win7/8 and windows XP.
  • Easy operation, just Drag and Drop the Dump over "PS3_Flash_Tool_v1.0.exe".
  • The dump will be checked to verify all sections are valid.
  • When a Dump is checked and found Valid it will Proceed to Patch it.
  • It has 2 operation Modes: Auto and Normal (can be toggled with included Registry Files). Auto Mode: will check the dump and if found valid it will patch it automatically (all in less then 2 seconds). Normal Mode: will check the dump and if found valid it will ask if you want to patch it.
