To quote: 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 CFW4.40 v1.03 Changelog:

  • Rebuilt the CFW with minimal patches needed for similar OFW Stability, also adding full compatibility with multiMAN Tools.
  • All known issues from v1.02 are fixed now (XMB PS2 Game Saves, Sequential Video Playback, Media Server always on)
  • Removed Cinavia Patch used on v1.02 because of some compatibility issues (When DEX4.40 is public it will be added properly again)
  • Added the ToolBox to [app_home/PS3_GAME] to restore multiMAN/StealthMAN launch mode from ToolBox.
  • Updated the ReactPSN patch to work offline without the need to log into PSN at all (Credits to Team Rebug for their original 4.30.1 Patch)
  • Added both 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: 3.55/4.21/4.30/4.40
  • Added the needed patches for the Original "*Install Package Files" Credits to Szalay and "hidden Man".
  • HDD can be swapped/changed and the CFW will re-install without any problem.
  • Patched LV1 to disable LV2 Protection.
  • Patched LV1 to add peek/poke support.
  • Patched LV1 Core OS Hash Check (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles)
  • Patched LV2 to add peek/poke support.
  • QA Flag enabled by default to allow for easier downgrading using Recovery Menu.
  • RSOD screen bypass patch for RSOD machines (it won't fix the RSOD but allows the PS3 to boot fine into XMB)
  • PSN/SEN access is available but it's not recommended.
  • It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.40 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed.
  • The CFW can be used directly for Downgrading with Hardware flashers using the new tool PS3 Nor and Nand Auto Patcher v0.04

Download: mclowmod06.rar

From the included ReadMe File: -ROGERO 4.30 - MCLOW MOD v0.6-


  • only tested on ROGERO 4.30 v2.03 and v2.05 (Update: 4.4 and 4.46 already tested)
  • dont delete the mod installer (Update: 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! (Update: installing packages from xmb now working!!)

HOW TO INSTALL or update:

1- install pkg Mclow mod v0.6
2- go to photo men in the xmb
3- start mclowmod and select fat or slim.. and rogero...... ps3 will restart!
4- AFTER THE RESTART change param.sfo from your applications to change the categories
5- apply mclowslimmod theme

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.
