Download: Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.7 (CEX) (170 MB - 178,830,064 bytes) / Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.7 (CEX) (Mirror)

To quote: v3.7 changes

1- Updated the Passphrase to allow PSN/SEN access without the need to use any other tool, just install the CFW and connect to PSN/SEN. Credits to eussNL and the PS3 Dev Wiki for the valuable and always up-to-date source of information.

2- Added a fix in the CFW for the old Black Screen Titles that needed: USB Mount (Rogero Manager) / Select+X (Multiman) to run from external HDD.

Now the same titles can run from internal HDD fine too with this CFW. Credits to Deank for his continuous efforts on Multiman and many other PS3 tools/fixes.

MD5: 8f8166b25d6bed891f292c77de5c4b28

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:

  • Updated the Passphrase to allow PSN/SEN access without the need to use any other tool, just install the CFW and connect to PSN/SEN.
  • Added a fix in the CFW for the old Black Screen Titles that needed: USB Mount (Rogero Manager) / Select+X (Multiman) to run from external HDD. Now the same titles can run from internal HDD fine too with this CFW.
  • Built-in system version spoof to 4.25 to prevent accidental system updates.
  • 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.

Original Features:

  • Kmeaw patched Lv2 with necessary patches to allow Peek/Poke support (same games compatibility as Kmeaw CFW)

Aw that sucks. Maybe I should think of a way to put a lock on disk port to not let it accept or recognize disks or something >_>

I don't think so, I guess you'll just have to decline each update you get from a disc.

I see. There isn't any way to keep the ps3 from at least noticing or ignoring the update and just not let it play?

Some games will update because of the "PS3_UPDATE" on the disc which already has the update. You could delete the "PS3_UPDATE" folder for backed up games and that will stop it from asking for updates too. Not sure if it will connect to PSN though.

You could change the version of the game to the latest one in the Param.sfo file to stop it updating. I've done it with a few games to play online.

The game itself will ask for a patch like 1.01 for example. But it will not install the newest firmware automatically.

Does the spoofer prevent newer games from updating the ps3?
