Rogero CEX-4.30 v1.00 Details
- Compatibility problem with some PS3 models is now fully fixed.
- XMB Icons problem from in-game PS button is now fixed. (Using the Patch included in the package: “PS3~dev_blind.zip”)
- PSN/SEN access is available as long as the current “passphrase” still the same.
- Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
- 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 4.30 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.
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
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 may not fix your bricked PS3 **
3- The QA flag must be always Enabled on your PS3 for safer upgrading/downgrading operations. Link —->toggle_qa.pkg
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
- Updating from CFW3.55/4.21 to the CFW4.30 v1.00 should be done using the following steps :
1- Proper Way ( CFW4.21 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.30 )
---- 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 CFW4.30 v1.00.
2- Alternative Way #1 ( CFW4.21 --> XMB Update --> CFW4.30 )
---- You can try updating from CFW4.21 to CFW4.30 v1.00 from XMB by using the "System Update --> Update via Storage Media".
---- If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the Alternative Way #2.
3- Alternative Way #2 ( CFW4.21 --> Recovery Menu --> CFW4.30 )
---- You can try updating from CFW4.21 to CFW4.30 v1.00 from Recovery Mode.
---- If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the first Proper Way ( CFW4.21 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.30 )
