Warning: Be aware this PS3 CFW is still under development, and like all PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware should only be installed if you are aware of the risk of possibly bricking your console. Although not a requirement, ideally it should only be attempted if you have a backup of your PS3 NAND / NOR and a hardware flasher available.
To quote, roughly translated: Hi all, What better than to come back with this kind of news!
Our friend and SGK developer releases today the result of hard work. Indeed, in the shadow he worked to bring us a CFW with features interesting and not yet seen the new CFW 4.xx
The basis of this CFW is based on the REX Rebug CFW 4.21 which is the most stable and most successful of the moment. He added the Debug menu and Rebug Package Manager for our greatest pleasure.
Some files from firmware 4.30 which ensures compatibility for the latest keysets. So you can play your backups favorites without a patch or fix. 4.31 is a spoof includes access to PSN and avoid unintended updates.
Debug menu displayed in setting
Rebug package added

I'll do that right now. I gotta log off tho cuz I need my laptop HD to get it started, Ill post back up in like 20min. Thanks much for the help.
It just keeps getting worse I want to die. I accidentally hit format with my laptop HD still in (my fault, been in a panic over this) lost all my laptop files, gone, and I gotta pay to reinstall windows cause I don't have a recovery CD, and formatted the HD to PS3
Well with Rodegero on the USB the one you said to use, I figure atheist my PS3 should work, but NOPE, same thing Blue Screen of Death, and not its 2 hard drives. I'm tripping, all my lap top and ps3 stuff gone in one day, I'm sitting scarred to do anything I want to end it.
I can't do anything right (been on CFW since 355, held off going to 4.21 went right to 4.31 from 3.55. All I've been doing is GT5 and I feel so stupid, I don't know what to. So I got a friend going to make a windows 7 install disk to hopefully get my LT back up, I'm positive that's just a windows install away from being back up and running minus the last 5 years of my life...
PS3 looks to be a Brick, at least wiping my LT HD shows its not the HD but the PS3 system that's finished, only hope is a Sony Repair.
Both Cables do nothing, 2 hard drives both stuck on blue screen AFTER reforming the HD on both. I'm assuming the cashe on the PS3 is done gotten messed up, nothing left to do.
BEWARE of SGK CFW, it's during auto reboot from updating SGK CFW that I got this Blue screen of Death. The update damaged I assume internal flash memory files beyond repair, and way beyond a simple recovery. I'm thinking Sony will just send me back a refurbished PS3 after I cover the fee.
I havnt had those cables since I moved. UPDATE still not good.
I popped out the HD from my laptop & put it in the PS3, I was able to get the screen that tells me to have 4.40 on a USB and press select & start then again holding them.
I put my PS3 HD back in then held select start, it went through the format process all the way to 100%, the system then reboots to the Blue Screen of Death.
I can get it to format the HD booting with my laptop HD and the blue screen only comes with the PS3 HD, it will also give me the "Cannot start the appropriate system storage was not found" error if I boot sans HD. I'm thinking SGK fried my HD so I'm going to see about buying a used laptop hd at a PC shop later today. I'm so bummed out...
