30w ago - Following up on the previous guide and release of Rogero PS3 CFW 4.21, here is a guide from Elle on how to get online and access PSN with PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware 4.21 using LG5Tool by Logan5.
Follow these instructions and you will be good to go:
1) Unzip the LG5Tool
2) Put the mswinsck.ocx file into the following folder: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
3) Then go to RUN>>CMD (Vista & 7 Users run as administrator)
4) Copy and Paste the following: cd C:\Windows\SysWOW64 THEN PRESS ENTER
5) Copy and Paste the following: regsvr32 mswinsck.ocx
6) You should see the following message saying: "DllRegisterServer In mswinsck.ocx succeeded"
7) Now you can run the LG5Tool so double click on it (Vista & 7 Users run as administrator)
8) When it loads make sure you tick the box where it says: "firmware update" & Click Start Proxy
9) On the LG5Tool you will see the word "Your IP" & after you click Start proxy a ip address will appear next to "Your Ip" make a note of it as you will be needing this on the next step below
10) Go to your PlayStation 3, Go to Network settings >> Internet Connection Settings >> Choose which connection your using Wired or Wireless (For this example I'll be choosing Wireless) >> Enter Manually >> then put your details in >> When your on IP address setting choose automatic >> then when you come to following options do the following:
Set the DCHP host name = DO NOT SET >> DNS Setting = AUTOMATIC >> MTU = AUTOMATIC >> Proxy Server = Use >>
Then it will ask you to input a address, here you will input the ip address which you saw on the LG5Tool (Some may say 192.168.0.4, some maybe different), Port number is: 8080 after doing that scroll across >> UPnP = Enable >>
Then you will see press the X button to save settings click X >> Test connection and When you test the connection the first 2 Ip address & internet connection should say successful. DO NOT SIGN IN TO PSN YET!!
Then (and this part is really important guys) on the LG5Tool UNTICK where it says Firmware update >> After its unticked then you can go to sign in on PSN, If you don't untick it you might have a error on your PlayStation and if you do then you have not unticked firmware version!!

How to Get on PSN Using Yet Another Bypass 1.8 for Noobs Tutorial by MacAmb
Hey guys i just wanted to share this brief guide about using YAB 1.8 to get on PSN because a lot of members and users still don't know how to use it. In this Method PC is required.
1- download YAB 1.8 (above) and extract it to desktop or anywhere.
2- open That Folder and run YABStart and noting will appear just a black screen will flashes .but its thats how its running.
3- now to get your IP for your Active Network Wireless or Lan Go to Start and then click on Run then type CMD and after that type Ipconfig it should appear a list Networks now take a note the Active one and remember it its something like this: 192.168.137.1 and close cmd.
1- Go To Setting and Internet Connection Settings > Custom > Choose either Wired Connection or Wireless > IP Address Setting Automatic > DHCP Do Not Set > DNS Setting Automatic > MTU Automatic >Proxy Server Use :filed the IP Address of your Active Connection IP in Address and use 27 in Port No. you can change it if you want in Config > UPnP Enable > now Press X to save the Setting and test the Connection.
That's it should be all set and working.. some notes: if you got IP Succeeded and Internet Connection Failed then just turn off any firewall and remember when you turn of your PC and turn on again to get on Online just use Step 2 in PC side.

Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene updates and homebrew releases!
Following up on his PS3 Brick-Recovery Procedure, today PlayStation 3 scene developer Rogero has updated his PS3 4.21 Custom Firmware to Rogero CEX 4.21 CFW v1.09 which he hopes is brick-free now yet doesn't appear to be.
Compatibility problem with some Slim models (CECH-25xx) is now fully fixed.
XMB Icons problem from in-game PS button is now fixed.
Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
Many other fixes from version 1.00 for a better performance and added stability.
It was tested by hundreds of testers on all PS3 models (FAT & Slim) and no problems were encountered.
It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.21 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed
Games can be loaded from Disc Icon (with Original game in BD) and from app_home (Disc-less, but not all games).
Current 3.55 homebrew applications can't be loaded on this CFW, applications must be re-signed properly for FW4.21.
1- This CFW doesn't have LV1 checks disabled and can't be installed on Downgraded PS3 consoles unless you have Dehashed/Reset Syscon Properly (if you're not sure about your PS3, Dehash it anyway to avoid any risk) Link: Dehashing Tutorial (scroll down)
2- Always make a NOR/Nand dump using multiMAN or memdump before installing any CFW to have a recovery backup in case of any bricks. Having a valid NOR/Nand dump is an essential step before upgrading, because you will always have a way to recover (using hardware flashers) when you have a valid dump.
** A Hardware Flasher alone without a valid dump cannot fix your bricked PS3 **
3- The QA flag must be always Enabled on your PS3 for safer upgrading/downgrading operations. Link: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/64707444/Toggle%20QA/toggle_qa.pkg
4- Always use the Recovery Menu while installing this CFW to avoid possible bricks (XMB update works, but Recovery Menu is safer).
6- Please Check the MD5 of the downloaded PUP file before installing any CFW to avoid possible bricks.
7- DO NOT HAVE DISC IN PS3 WHEN UPDATING FIRMWARES.. As the PS3 will take the UPDATE from the DISC First.
8- You need to already be on 3.55 to install this. Installing from any firmware other than 3.55 will simply not work
Downgrading back to 3.55 is always possible using the following steps:
Download the 4.25 downgrader PUP: http://www.sendspace.com/file/d9pe9v Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
While on Rogero CFW4.21, go to System Update from XMB and install the 4.25 downgrader CFW.
Once installed, now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" ---> Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
Once the install is finished, you're now back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 (from here it's better to dehash again before installing any other OFW/CFW 3.55)
Updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to the CFW4.21 v1.09 should be done using the following steps:
1- Proper Way (CFW4.21 v1.00 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.21 v1.09)
Downgrade back to ver3.55 using the guide above.
Once on Rogero CEX3.55 v3.7 you can update again from Recovery Menu into the new CFW4.21 v1.09
2- Alternative Way (CFW4.21 v1.00 --> Recovery Menu --> CFW4.21 v1.09)
You can try updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 from Recovery Mode first.
If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the first Proper Way (CFW4.21 v1.00 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.21 v1.09)

Note: Guys... after updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 make sure to delete the GameData of any game that stopped to work now on v1.09 (due to the spoof 4.25 being removed, previous GameData should be deleted and reinstalled again so the game can load properly)
I've already tested the Rogero v1.09, NO BRICKS. I've tested it on the same 3 PS3s that had bricked on the v1.00 version before. Enjoy!
