To quote: 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.

Download: InstallPKG SingStar Replacement PKG

From deank: If you ever feel sad and want singstar back - just press [Triangle] and [Delete] the new [IPF] and XMB will bring SS back. You can also get rid of the standalone installPKG and you'll have a legitimate IPF now (using the ID of Singstar - so no worries there!)

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.

Multiman is the launcher for launching the games, it also adds tools for copying files to your hd via ftp etc

Hy syuz008,

You need the orginal EBOOT.BIN for some Games. New Games must be patched for using on a CFW 3.55. Under a newer CFW normally you become an Error Code and the PS3 go back to XMB.

If you have CFW 4.46 you don't need any patch, only a crack patch or the RAP files installed.

Hope can help

Because of the release of GTA V and next week FIFA 2014 it's good to get you PS3 updated to the latest CFW. Since Rebug has a REX version which most ppl don't want or really need they also made a Lite. Which I am not really a fan of since it changes pictograms of the XMB.

So the next Stablest CFW is the Latest rogero cfw. There are really a couple versions from this CFW but I will give you the most important ones.

I personally use this one: it's the PS3UPDAT_Rogero_CEX_4.46_v1.01_BD_BT_Updates_Enabled.pup

It is the Official Rogero CFW 4.46 1.01 BUT only for ppl with a working Blu-Ray drive and working bluetooth (so when you have the availability to use you joystick wireless your BT is working) This one updates the Firmware from those two to latest version. (And I like that)

If yours doesn't work just take this one: That is the one that doesn't check for your BD Drive and BT.

So after that it's good to have the Rebug Toolkit: to make sure you're Toggle QA is enabled. And you can backup your Flash to file.

Now, only play using PSN Tool 1.0: (Read the manual included)

Because PSN ban risk is high. I recommend the Stealth version of every Homebrew app. Most importantly: Multiman. And probably: Wipe History that changes a file in your system so when Sony Checks that file, it doesn't contain any Homebrew app or games anymore.
