To quote: This CFW4.21 is almost the same as the 4.30 version except it have some add-ons that can't be added to ver 4.30 currently:

1- It does have the default "Install Package Files" node on XMB. (no need to have multiMAN installed before using it)
2- It does have LV1 Checks Disabled and can be used directly instead of Rogero3.55 v3.7 while downgrading with Hardware Flashers.
3- It does have the Proper Cinavia Disabled Files for the users who needs it.

This CFW was tested on most PS3 Models by different testers and no problems were encountered. But as any CFW release you must install it with caution and by following proper instructions, No one will be held responsible for any damage caused.

Rogero CFW4.30/4.21 v2.00 Details

4.30 v2.00

  • Rebuilt from scratch using OFW4.30 files only (no DEX/SEX files) with official XMB and full features working as in OFW4.30
  • All known problems like XMB icons sorting and Demo Mode issues from v 1.04 are now all gone with the use of the official XMB.
  • Removed the classical "Install Package Files" Icon from XMB to have a 100% original XMB (no DEX/SEX files used).
  • Installing Package Files can be done from multiMAN 04.12.00 (XMMB Home column or MMOS File Manager).
  • Patched LV1 to disable LV2 Protection.
  • Patched LV1 to add peek/poke support to replace hvc 182/183 (multiMAN Direct Disc Access is now working fine with CFW4.21/4.30 v2.00)
  • Patched LV1 to disable SYSTEM MANAGER INTEGRITY CHECK (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles)
  • Patched LV1 Core OS Hash Check (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles)
  • Patched LV2 to add peek/poke support. (for both LV1 and LV2)
  • Patched VSH to enable ReActPSN compatibility (Allow Unsigned act.dat and *.rif files, Disable Unlinking/Deleting of act.dat)
  • Spoofed the system version to latest OFW version 4.31.
  • PSN/SEN access is available as long as the current "passphrase" still the same.
  • Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
  • It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.30 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).

well done, sometimes a little bravery is rewarding, sometimes its a killer. its the chances we take being cfw users.

sometimes it pays off , sometimes it dont, thankfully they all come with warnings and we only have ourselves to blame when anything gos wrong.

Been following this since it started and decided that i would take a chance and risk my 3.55 CFW kmeaw ps3 trying 4.21 Rogero CFW and about ten mins ago it was a sucess and is now working great!

My PS3 is CECH-2103A (came with 3.40 so was never downgreaded, was a out the box right to 3.55 Kmeaw). ive had no problems at all so far but saying that all ive done so far is run MM and try loading Dishonored (which installed fine and is sitting on the title screen as i write this lol).

What i did:

1. Remove all my 3.55 games
2. Boot into recovery mode
3. installed rogero 4.21
4. success
