  • Speed ​​of the system increased

Tested on:

  • CECH-2001A ( SLIM 120gb ) [ Working!. ]
  • CECH-2501A [ Working!. ]
  • CECH-2002B [ Working! ]
  • CECH-2001B ( 250gb SLIM ) [ Working!. ]
  • CECHG04 [ Working! ]
  • CECHE [ Working!. ]
  • CECHL04 [ Working! ]
  • CECH-2004B [ 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).

It is not the fault of the Custom Firmware, but backups Manager. Even with Habib 4.60 IrisMan me back FFFFFFF error with BD MIRROR. The FERROX works perfectly, are 4.60 payloads that suck! Before I talk, I beg you to inform you.

If you can not install things and then you complain then do not do it. Rather than criticize those who work for FREE.
