February 25, 2012 // 8:42 pm - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer Rogero has updated his Rogero PS3 CFW to version 3 with the changes outlined below followed by a v3.1 bug fix.

Download: Rogero PS3 CFW V3 Kmeaw LV2 LV1 Patches 4.11 Spoof Privacy Patch NoBD / Rogero PS3 CFW v3.1 (PlayStation 3 BSOD Bug Fix)

To quote: His new CFW adding 4.11 spoofing, NoBD patch to allow installing without Blue-ray Drive (especially for downgrading purposes), and other fixes. He also hinted about a new Rogero Manager being released soon! Check out the details below.

Usage / Compatibility:

  • Can be used for Downgrade directly using a hardware flasher like Progskeet / E3 Flasher / Teensy++, etc...
  • Can be used for normal system update like any other CFW/MFW from XMB or from Recovery Menu.

Internal Structure:

New Features:

  • Built-in system version spoof to 4.11 to prevent accidental system updates (won't allow going online in any way)
  • NoBD Patch to allow installing it with the Blu-Ray drive disconnected (especially for downgrading purposes)
  • Have other fixes that prevents the Black screen or Payload loading problems encountered on some PS3 systems.

Standard Features:

  • Kmeaw patched Lv2 with necessary patches to allow Peek/Poke support (same games compatibility as Kmeaw CFW)
  • LV1 Checks Disabled to bypass the Syscon hashes for downgraded consoles.
  • Privacy Patch applied to block communications with all Sony servers.
  • Custom Boot Logo.
  • Built-in "Heavy Rain" dynamic theme.

This is a better optimized version of the previous MFW released, This one is a Custom firmware built manually by patching and packing the files and the final PUP package using the well known "failoverflow" public set of tools and having "Kmeaw" as the base firmware unlike it's previous version which was a Modified firmware built using the famous MFW builder application and using an OFW3.55 as the base firmware.

History:

After several days and more testing of the first MFW released for downgrading from 3.70-->3.55 I had some users feedback from #progskeet-support that some PS3 machines are having either the Registry Corrupted/Blue Screen or just a Black Screen after downgrade that required re-installing the MFW from Recovery Menu or reflashing the NOR in some cases.

Further research about the donwgrade V2 patches and the no_check.PUP with some more testing showed that a Kmeaw based LV2 seems to have better compatibility with the Downgrade patches applied to the NOR image then a MFW built with a patched LV2, so I decided to build a new version manually which is a custom firmware that combines Kmeaw LV2 patches with Dospiedras Lv1 no-check patches and having the minimal/necessary set of patches to preserve the best overall stability.

Thanks to the all the beta testers especially Blakcat & Marlboro1

N.B: please note that Rogero Manager v8.5 (to be released soon) or newer are only compatible with this CFW V2 because the CFW have the built in version spoofed to 3.70 and older versions of the Manager (8.4 and lower) can't recognize it and won't be able to load the necessary payload.

Cheers

Update: Rogero PS3 CFW v3.1 is nowavailable above and fixes a BSOD bug problem on some PS3 machines after downgrading.

that was a beta release and never been stable, try running a 3.60 game on it or 3.56, it won't execute

Are you sure? The last update had 3.60 keys and bugs so I was thinking this version will also have them too?

Following up on his previous revision, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Rogero has updated his PS3 Custom Firmware to version 3.6 for 3.55 CFW users with details on the changes below.

Download: Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.6 / Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.6 (Mirror)

To quote: v3.6 Changelog

  • Updated the system version spoof to 4.25 to prevent accidental system updates --> at least from Game Discs ( internet/Sony communication is not blocked to allow future PSN access addition if possible, that's why you see the Update message when you try to Log-In to PSN ) so if anyone Insists to Update... go ahead, it's possible...
  • Please note that this CFW is an update to v:3.4 , it doesn't have any 3.56/3.60 keys like the EXPERIMENTAL CFW v:3.5
    It is so stable and doesn't have any problem with Blu-Ray discs playback because the loaders are not patched like they are in v:3.5

MD5: 894132f31b3814893b4710c0b640c71f

For those following, this PS3 Custom Firmware update comes just a few days after PS3 System Software Update v4.25 was released by Sony.
