To quote, roughly translated: OFW 4.60 FERROX (Dual Boot) By Alexander!

Alexander is working to correct the original Bug Games FERROX CFW 4.60, but in the meantime there is another small gift, not of little importance. I'm talking about the OFW 4.60 FERROX (Dual Boot). The CFW DUAL BOOT primarily have been issued by Habib.

These "CFW" are nothing more than the OFW "unlocked" that allow the downgrade. The utility is simple, we can go online installing it as if we had a real OFW (Only for consoles NOT banned) (So nothing and Homebrew Games Backup), but at the same time, we will install a CFW 4.XX to return to using Homebrew and Backup.


  • Disabled ECDSA in LV0 loaders. (Isoloader)
  • Disabled ECDSA in SPU PKG (spu_pkg_rvk_verifier).
  • No function for CFW'S enabled. So, no nothing Homebrew and Backup.
  • No QA FLAG Enabled.
  • Possible Downgrade, installing a 999 or a Downgrade 4.60 CFW [via XMB].


  • The Games Original work.
  • Downgrade done with the 4.60 FERROX 1.00, Via XMB.
  • Do not be installed on Console Player with Broken or Absent.

In spite of all we do not recommend the use of this OFW, 'cause we're not 100% sure of the countermeasures taken by SONY antiban, even if the odds' of banks, however, are minimal compared to a normal Custom Firmware.


If anyone can, just tell him to disable only isoldr ecdsa check plus make file with same filesize if he can (openssl etc).

Update: CFW 4.60 FERROX 1.01 [BD EDITION] By Alexander! (via openmodding.net/Thread-Working-CFW-4-60-FERROX-1-01-BD-EDITION-By-Alexander?pid=94303#pid94303)

After much hard work and a lot of testing at the end of Alexander was able to fixare the bug that did not allow games to start giving the original error 800XXX17. Now you can rest assured the original game works perfectly. Unfortunately still have not updated the Different Backup Manager, but we have heard that it is in the release version updated Gamesonic Manager. Below I leave you download.

Well this was some bull! I downgraded my PS3 from Rogero cfw 4.21 back to cfw 3.55 then I installed this file OFW466FERROXDB.PUP and the result, my system is now on Official 4.66!! How did that happen??

My system was not plugged into any internet connection, no disc in the bluray player, and the MD5 showed the correct numbers that OFW466FERROXDB.PUP was legit. But now my system boots up and shows official 4.66 in the system info and all the cfw icons are gone.

Please, please someone tell me that I have to boot the PS3 up in a special way to get to the CFW and my system really is not crap now. If it is I want to know how that happened???

Update: Never mind it appear I can downgrade it back with the Rogero downgrader. I have not been in the scene for well over a year, it would sure help if some operating instructions were posted. How about a good old fashion "Tutorial" for us noobs.
