Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.5 with 3.56 / 3.60 Keys PoC


87w ago - Following up on his 4.21 Spoofer updates and 3.55 DEX Downgrader CFW, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer Rogero has released a proof-of-concept (PoC) dubbed Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.5 which includes the PS3 3.56 / 3.60 keys.

Download: Rogero PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) v3.5 (PoC)

Changelog v3.5:

1- Added the 3.56 and 3.60 appldr/NPDRM key sets.
2- Patched many version checks and extended keys table index to activate the usage of newly added keys.
3- Games with Eboots version 3.56 are now working without the need for any patch, the CFW can decrypt the Eboot on the fly.
4- Games with Eboots version 3.60 are still giving an error on load due to some additional 3.60 checks that are being worked on. ("EAUTHFAIL | 0x80010017 | Program authentication fail (Error starting BluRay game)" which may need to be addressed outside appldr)

Important Note: This CFW is released only as a Proof of Concept for adding newer keys to 3.55 CFW. The 3.60 keys are already added to this CFW but some additional patching is needed on some loaders to bring the 3.60 functionality to the CFW.

Special Thanks to eussNL for his assisstance and help with the specific patches and tasks used to build and test the CFW. Special Thanks to glu0n for his awesome reversing/patching skills on the loaders.

Thanks PSN work but ReactPSN not working any one tell me if i am wrong...
I need to know this too, it wasn't working in the 3.6x key POC version either, super wanted it back but the black screen fix added PS1 fixes, this CFW has fixed Legend of Legaia (NTSC) along with the latest MM so I'm without newer activations unless I switch MFW back and forth.

I did that before Rebug supported ReactPSN. Wish Rebug would make an updated CFW (3.55.3?) that tops all others like theres did a few months ago.

weird questions... i'll answer what i can. you install this like any other firmware, from xmb or recovery mode.

This is a cex firmware, not a dex firmware. On dex you can play almost every game as long as it has an update you can patch to make it dex.

If you're sick of this firmware, you can go back to kmeaw, it's very similar to it. You would probably just need to do it through recovery mode.
