  • CECH-2501A [ Working!. ]
  • CECH-2002B [ Working! ]
  • CECH-2001B ( 250gb SLIM ) [ Working!. ]

  • CECH 2004A [ Working! ]
  • CECH-2504A Datacode 1A [ Working!. ]
  • CECH2104A [ Working!. ]

For all those who incur 8002F157 error, it means you have not enabled MODE 'ON DEBUG ON via the qaflag and then have to do the deashing on the console.

To correct this error: Install CFW 4.21 Rebug or CFW that allows you to activate the qa flag and the mode 'debugging. Upgrade to OFW 3.55 for two times in a row. That's right, to install RECOVERY twice the OFW 3.55. Proceed with the installation of any other CFW's.

I remind you that the starting point of this custom firmware is 3.55 Original Firmware or any Custom Firmware.

MANDATORY: It is recommended that, after a successful installation of custom firmware, run:

  • Settings> [System Settings]> [Restore Default Settings] (From XMB)
  • Restore File System (Recovery)
  • Rebuild Database (Recovery)

So, you will have a clean install and you'll be fine (Thanks to franci97 & SonyForever).

If you have not been able to figure out how to downgrade I do not think it's the fault of the Ferrox. Do you have to inform you that before. L 'OFW 4.60 FERROX DB works wonders.

I'm glad you solved

this help me downgrade FERROX 4.60 v1.01 to HABIB COBRA 4.55 v1.03:

1. Install 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP
2. Toggle qa flag with toggle_qa.pkg, or enable with rebug toolbox.
3. Install OFW 3.55 from the recovery menu or use Condor updater.
4. Update to any CFW and enjoy.

3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP in recovery need to try to effect by pressing START + SELECT

I have personally tested the Dual Boot. You need to install CFW 4.60 FERROX 1.01 RECOVERY from XMB or to return to the CFW. Then from there you can do a downgrade to CFW 4.xx

From OFW 4.60 Ferrox DB steps to CFW 4.60 FERROX 1.01. (xmb to recovery) then from CFW 4.60 FERROX 1.01, uses the 999 Downgrader or Rogero Downgrader

qa flag does not work on Dual Boot OFW. The important thing is that you have it enabled (system update debug) BEFORE I installed the ofw dual boot. Otherwise, you need to downgrade with flasher
