You dono understand. Geohot isn't the guy with the balls. He has make a contract with Sony to never touch a sony product again. If he do he will go strait to arrest. Now he working for FACEBOOK. And the men with the giant balls will be Graf Chokolo. But beside that it seems you have no idea how many work is all behing this. If it would be so much easy to do a 3.72 CFW some one would do. For me Geohot is the same like Waninkoko for the Wii.
I told every one, the whole scene that waninkoko isn't that good but no one hase belived me and what hase he done as it comes to the PS3 ? Yea DAMN right bricked a lot consoles with his custom FW in case he really hasn't a clue. And now....we doesnt have heared a word or something else of him since months. Also for Geohot. He simply added the debug key for PKG's to the 3.50 plugin/driver to being able to install debug PKG's on OFW but hase presented it like he has written a whole CFW.
But you also can get deeper into it and make your OWN 3.72 CFW if it is that easy and peoples only scare about lawsuits
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.
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.
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.
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.
Update: Rogero PS3 CFW v3.1 is nowavailable above and fixes a BSOD bug problem on some PS3 machines after downgrading.
