For all the users that are having the Singstar Icon on XMB, please know that this is a pure Original FW 4.30/4.31 feature and it seems it is only showing for Europe users when they connect the PS3 to the Internet.

Here's two links to the SingStar problem with OFW4.30 :


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.

This CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over any OFW3.55/CFW3.55/CFW4.21/CFW4.30. For details about Downgrading back to CFW/OFW3.55 Please read the Downgrade Guide below.

Rogero CFW4.30 v2.03 Details

  • 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 previous versions are now gone with the use of the official XMB.
  • New Improved "Install Package Files" Application added to XMB instead of using the traditional DEX Icon, to have a 100% original XMB.
  • Once the PS3 is booted, select the [app_home/PS3_GAME] Icon and It will change automatically to [* Install Package Files]
  • If you load a Game from multiMAN it will still be redirected and shown under the same [app_home/PS3_GAME] Icon
  • After loading a Game, you can restart the PS3 again to have [* Install Package Files] back on XMB

  • [* Install Package Files] function supports:
  • up to 256 pkg files
  • split pkg files
  • sorting
  • queued PKG indication (in red)
  • multipart (split) PKG indication (in yellow)
  • copy/transfer progress
  • Scanned locations: /dev_usb*** /dev_hdd0 /dev_bdvd in /PKG /packages and root folders
  • Split files format: .0 - .63 / .66600 - .66663 / .001 - .064
  • CFW Structure fixed to match the OFW 4.xx Structure:

  • HDD can be swapped/changed and the CFW4.30 v2.03 will re-install without any problem.
  • 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 CFW4.30 v2.03)
  • 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)
  • The CFW can be used directly for Downgrading with Hardware flashers /Flashing from FSM/Exiting from FSM, all works fine.

  • 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).
  • Current 3.55 homebrew applications can't be loaded on this CFW, applications must be re-signed properly for FW4.21/4.30

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
