92w ago - Following up on his PS3 Brick-Recovery Procedure, today PlayStation 3 scene developer Rogero has updated his PS3 4.21 Custom Firmware to Rogero CEX 4.21 CFW v1.09 which he hopes is brick-free now yet doesn't appear to be.

From his site: For details about Updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 please read the Update Guide below

For details about Recovering from v1.00 Brick please check this thread: Brick-Recovery Procedure from CFW4.21 back to CFW3.55

Rogero v1.09 Details and Changes

  • Compatibility problem with some Slim models (CECH-25xx) is now fully fixed.
  • XMB Icons problem from in-game PS button is now fixed.
  • Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
  • Many other fixes from version 1.00 for a better performance and added stability.
  • It was tested by hundreds of testers on all PS3 models (FAT & Slim) and no problems were encountered.
  • It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.21 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed
  • Games can be loaded from Disc Icon (with Original game in BD) and from app_home (Disc-less, but not all games).
  • Current 3.55 homebrew applications can't be loaded on this CFW, applications must be re-signed properly for FW4.21.

ATTENTION:

1- This CFW doesn't have LV1 checks disabled and can't be installed on Downgraded PS3 consoles unless you have Dehashed/Reset Syscon Properly (if you're not sure about your PS3, Dehash it anyway to avoid any risk) Link: Dehashing Tutorial (scroll down)

2- Always make a NOR/Nand dump using multiMAN or memdump before installing any CFW to have a recovery backup in case of any bricks. Having a valid NOR/Nand dump is an essential step before upgrading, because you will always have a way to recover (using hardware flashers) when you have a valid dump.

** A Hardware Flasher alone without a valid dump cannot fix your bricked PS3 **

3- The QA flag must be always Enabled on your PS3 for safer upgrading/downgrading operations. Link: [Register or Login to view links]

4- Always use the Recovery Menu while installing this CFW to avoid possible bricks (XMB update works, but Recovery Menu is safer).

6- Please Check the MD5 of the downloaded PUP file before installing any CFW to avoid possible bricks.

7- DO NOT HAVE DISC IN PS3 WHEN UPDATING FIRMWARES.. As the PS3 will take the UPDATE from the DISC First.

8- You need to already be on 3.55 to install this. Installing from any firmware other than 3.55 will simply not work

Downgrading back to 3.55 is always possible using the following steps:

  • Download the 4.25 downgrader PUP: [Register or Login to view links] Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
  • Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
  • While on Rogero CFW4.21, go to System Update from XMB and install the 4.25 downgrader CFW.
  • Once installed, now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" ---> Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
  • Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
  • Once the install is finished, you're now back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 (from here it's better to dehash again before installing any other OFW/CFW 3.55)

Updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to the CFW4.21 v1.09 should be done using the following steps:

1- Proper Way (CFW4.21 v1.00 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.21 v1.09)

  • Downgrade back to ver3.55 using the guide above.
  • Once on Rogero CEX3.55 v3.7 you can update again from Recovery Menu into the new CFW4.21 v1.09

2- Alternative Way (CFW4.21 v1.00 --> Recovery Menu --> CFW4.21 v1.09)

  • You can try updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 from Recovery Mode first.
  • If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the first Proper Way (CFW4.21 v1.00 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.21 v1.09)

Note: Guys... after updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 make sure to delete the GameData of any game that stopped to work now on v1.09 (due to the spoof 4.25 being removed, previous GameData should be deleted and reinstalled again so the game can load properly)





I've already tested the Rogero v1.09, NO BRICKS. I've tested it on the same 3 PS3s that had bricked on the v1.00 version before. Enjoy!

On Rogero 4.46 I use PSIDPATCH4.40 and a valid Console ID with no issues.

Use YAB ([Register or Login to view links]) that bypass the update, remember theres a risk of system ban, use PSNope to temporary patch your cfw syscalls that way you will lower the risk significantly.

After I downloaded the CFW, the usually "Playstation 3" option went back became /app_home/PS3_GAME/. Everytime I highlight it, it become Toolbox. My problem is, even after I chose a game in Multiman; it's still become the Toolbox. Please help/

After I installed Rogero CEX 4.46 v1.01 PS3 CFW with Toolbox for StealthMan Out, the usually PlayStation 3 logo suddenly went back became /app_home/PS3_GAME. Everytime I highlight it, it become toolbox.

The problem is even after I chose a game in Multiman, the "/app_home/PS3_GAME" logo still become toolbox. Reinstalling the Firmware didn't help to solve this problem.

Sorry if my grammar is bad, I'm kinda new to English.
