19w ago - Following up on his previous release and the recent work from Szalay, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer Rogero has updated to Rogero CEX 4.30 v2.04 which includes the original Install Package Files and updated App_Home to IPF that no longer requires restarting.
To quote: 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.
From deank: If you ever feel sad and want singstar back - just press [Triangle] and [Delete] the new [IPF] and XMB will bring SS back. You can also get rid of the standalone installPKG and you'll have a legitimate IPF now (using the ID of Singstar - so no worries there!)
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 v2.04 Change-log
Added the new patches that allowed the return of the Original "*Install Package Files", Credits to Szalay and "hidden Man".
Updated Dean's "*Install Package files" on [app_home] to the latest version that doesn't requires a PS3 Restart anymore.
All the previous features of version 2.03 are all preserved.
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
You can also Install the new stand-alone XMB application from Deank --> [* Install Package Files] to have it showing permanently 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: No more corrupted data error messages while Installing from XMB or Recovery Menu. The CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over any OFW3.55/CFW3.55/CFW4.21/CFW4.30. 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.
The CFW have both noBD/noBT patches to allow installation on consoles with broken BluRay Drive or Bluetooth board.
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).
Current 3.55 homebrew applications can't be loaded on this CFW, applications must be re-signed properly for FW4.21/4.30

were you spoofed when you installed this? you shouldn't have installed this considering you didn't/couldn't go to recovery mode. these aren't legos, you have to follow directions and even then, it's not always gonna work and if you mess up, you can't exactly start over easily.
i can't exactly talk cause i've bricked a console before, but i learned from it.
cosoledev, is scetools useable on firmwares higher than 3.6? i checked the keys button and it only went up to 3.6, not 4.21/4.25. i haven't tested the game yet just out of laziness. i haven't turned on my console today. i don't exactly get what lv0, lv1, etc. is exactly, but i know that's where keys are possibly. so, thanks for any help provided.
Hello everyone, I just tried the upgrade and got bricked. My PS3 now turn on but give no signal. I had a CFW 3.55 ( not sure which one) so I tried to install this through XMB. I know it was stupid but I wasn't able to access the recovery mode for some reason.
i'm wondering if this is causing bricks cause people aren't reading it.
there's only one dude that i can look up to that has gotten a brick. for everyone else, they could have a spoofer or something installed. judging by the questions, people aren't reading past the title...
oh, and thanks for the tools. i should be able to patch the game i've been waiting to play a while.
