Rogero 4.21 CFW has been released

Just been careful when upgrading people its advised to return to 3.55 OFW before upgrading...

HAVE FUN... :Biggrin2:


just for the record I suggest link no.5 as that passes the "checksum" ;)


new link

Don't bother trying to download the packs as the 2 hotlinks just take you to spam and pop up sites, NOD32 has a freak on.....

Getting a few checksums on the downloads.....check it with MD5

Re: Rogero CEX-4.21 CFW !!!RELEASED!!!

looks like the bricks could be due to ones that have been downgraded possibly, i've never gone above 3.55 - but i'm going to hold on a few days, see how it pans out

Re: Rogero CEX-4.21 CFW !!!RELEASED!!!

must be on 3.55 or lower

I upgraded - to rogero 4.21 (HE HAS PULLED HIS FILES DUE TO BRICKS)

My PS3 upgraded fine - though I was on 3.55 CFW already and just removed PSN/SPOOF enablers and returned to OFW 3.55 through recovery menu

IF YOU BOUGHT YOUR PS3 Brand NEW and it was 3.55 or below then you should be fine (but remove any spoof/enablers first)
If you bought it second hand there is a pkg you can install to find out your lowest version your PS3 can downgrade to
regardless of your version - DO NOT install this unless you have got your self back to 3.55 OFW

I actually was in the middle of upgrading a HDD to a larger size on my brothers PS3 and forgot to remove PSN 4.25 enabler and basically messed up being able to upgrade to CFW4.21, I couldn't get back to 3.55 so I stupidly tried installed the CFW4.21 it kinda installed but wouldn't install pkgs then bricked - I should have tried the 4.21to3.55pup but never knew it existed. no other pup would install after so I had to bite the bullet and install OFW 4.25 on my bros ps3 - its ok he never plays anyway - but his PS3 is now official

patience is definitely needed when doing this - least my ps3 with new games are running fine
The latest Multi-man that works on 4.21CFW is multiMAN_04.07.02 (04.07.01 runs but need to change settings - best to update)

BBC News - PlayStation 'master key' leaked online ...... and ....... Sony PlayStation 3 $acked with custom firmware | THN Security and Hacking News

just read this, i believe this is the super duper master key should mean all firmwares and updates can be done.
Jimmy, I mean thommo, we all thought that last time so I will keep my fingers crossed :) if it is the case though I'd expect the ps4 release to be earlier than planned, although weren't we all saying that when 3.55 got hacked aswell? Lmao.

Not sure that was the master key and even if it was they swore not to release it.... this time its been leaked to the chinese and to stop them making cash out of a dongle it seems the other hackers even though not happy have leaked it too.

mines not been $acked in ages but saying that mines not been switched on in ages, same with the xbox i seem to have lost interest in them for the time being..new cod and new gears might sort that.

Re: Rogero CEX-4.21 CFW !!!RELEASED!!!

Just to be clear on this topic.....
- The cfw released at this very moment with "the lv0 keys discovery" only apply to consoles that are still running on OFW/CFW 3.41 / 3.55. In a way that is good news but not the stuff we want... We want to have a CFW we can install on 4.X ofw...
(every ps3 console has it own unique keyset which you could dump but not on higher version of Firmware ... that unique keyset is then used to upgrade yr firmware on that part. console)
So before celebrating we should take really hope kakaroto his solution to run homebrew will maybe open up a windows to dump those unique keys ...

Re: Rogero CEX-4.21 CFW !!!RELEASED!!!

Latest news appears its only certain slims thats bricking

details of how to fix bricked ps3's
Code:
You don't have permission to view the code content. Log in or register now.
Im still hanging off for a few more days I think, rumours regarding a hardware fix that will read the keys on any firmware but you must be on 3.55 when the hardware is installed



After Testing with some bricked Slim consoles ( from updating to CFW4.21 ) with different friends and testers around the world,
I can confirm that Bricked consoles can be recovered back to CFW3.55 even if you didn't have a NOR Dump/Backup .


Requirements are:
1- a Hardware Flasher so you can read/write to the PS3 NOR flash
2- A Dongle with PSgrade payload (any old jailbreak dongle + PSGrade hex will do) used to Enter Factory Service Mode (FSM)
3- Rogero CEX3.55 v3.7 PUP

for more details about Recovering from the Brick please check this new thread ----> Brick-Recovery Procedure from CFW4.21 back to CFW3.55

Note:
- I didn't receive any Brick report from any FAT PS3 that updated to CFW4.21, so it seems FAT consoles are not being affected by the bug.

- Apparently only the last downgradable Slim models are affected (CECH-25xx with Datecode 1A and base FW version = 3.50)

- I Also know that there are also few Slims that bricked with model CECH-20xx but 90% of the reports were model
(CECH-25xx with Datecode 1A and base FW version = 3.50).

- The Brick may be caused by the boot-loaders not being written correctly into the NOR during the Update process.

Please note also that all the above info may not be 100% accurate,
things are still being worked on so nothing is confirmed at all and I don't promise anything about an updated CFW.

Re: Rogero CEX-4.21 CFW !!!RELEASED!!!

Be carefull are there is no "brickfree" version yet. YOU MUST BE on 3.55
Rogero CEX-4.21 CFW v1.00 Free for All, only download from tortuga Cove.(just to be sure and on the safe side)

To be honest I would wait on a stable rebug version.(the very best image there is)

v1.00 Info
- This is a 4.21CFW spoofed to version 4.25 to allow SEN access
- It can be used as a normal System Update from any 3.55 OFW/CFW/MFW
- It was tested using a hardware flasher and no bricks or any problems at all were encountered
- It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.21 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed
- Games must be loaded from Disc Icon (with Original game in BD) and not from app_home
- Current 3.55 homebrew application can't be loaded on this CFW, applications must be re-signed properly. 1-
Credits to eussNL and the PS3DevWiki for the valuable and always up-to-date source of information.
2-
Credits to Deank for his continuous efforts on Multiman and many other PS3 tools/fixes.
It is not the years in your life that count. It is the life in your years.

You can find the full information here (do's and don't do's)

For details about Updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 please read the Update Guide below



For details about Recovering from v1.00 Brick please check this thread
----> Brick-Recovery Procedure from CFW4.21 back to CFW3.55

v1.09 Details and Changes

- Compatibility problem with some Slim models (CECH-25xx) is now fully fixed.
- XMB Icons problem from in-game PS button is now fixed.
- Loading games from App_home Icon is now fixed.
- Many other fixes from version 1.00 for a better performance and added stability.

Updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to the CFW4.21 v1.09 should be done using the following steps :


1- Proper Way ( CFW4.21 v1.00 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.21 v1.09 )
---- 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 CFW4.21 v1.09

2- Alternative Way ( CFW4.21 v1.00 --> Recovery Menu --> CFW4.21 v1.09 )
---- You can try updating from CFW4.21 v1.00 to CFW4.21 v1.09 from Recovery Mode first.
---- If it didn't work, then you'll have to use the first Proper Way ( CFW4.21 v1.00 --> CFW3.55 --> CFW4.21 v1.09 )
