  • 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).

go to network settings and press L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 + L3 + DOWN ARROW. August options appear under the network options. then install the OFW 3.55.

My phat PS3 is bricked, but I can access recovery. Is it possible to upgrade PS3 that was on a CFW (Rogero 4.43 I think) before brick to this latest CFW via recovery update? Thanks and any help would be much appreciated. Can't afford downgrade dongle or would have been done that....

Well, it's written on the release notes that, in order to go back to CFW, you need to install a 4.60 CFW or a Downgrader... there's nothing wrong with Ferrox, it's about the DB OFW: you don't have QA Flag enabled since everything's like a normal OFW (except that you can go back to CFW), so you NEED to install another 4.60 CFW or a Downgrader! So... what you wrote is exactly what's expected to be done to go back to CFW.

I don't think a flasher is needed: from OFW DB vX.XX you install the respective CFW X.XX, and from that, if you don't have QA Flag enabled, you just install a 999 Downgrader... or am I missing something?
