    Guys with FAT consoles Please stop Updating to v1.09 until I get some FAT consoles myself and do more testings.


    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.
    - 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 4.21 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.



    ATTENTION:

    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 cannot 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



    - Downgrading back to 3.55 is always possible using the following steps :
    - Download the 4.25 downgrader PUP ---> 4.25 Downgrader       mirror ---> 4.25 Downgrader
       Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
    - Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
    - While on Rogero CFW4.21, go to System Update from XMB and install the 4.25 downgrader CFW.
    - After the downgrader CFW installs you'll be on a hybrid CFW3.55 that will still shows ver4.21 from system settings.
    - Enable QA flag by following these steps:

    1- Download the Rebug QA_Toggle package from here ---> toggle_qa.pkg
    2- Put the "toggle_qa.pkg" on USB and Install it on the PS3.
    3- Run the "Rebug Toggle QA" from XMB, the screen will go Black and you will see HDD Led activity then if all went fine you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and the PS3 will Restart back to XMB.
    4- If you want to make sure QA flag was set, go to "Network Settings" then apply the following key combo (all at the same time):

    L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down

    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.

    - Now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" ---> Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
    - Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
    - Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" again for the second time (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
      ( Installing "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" twice from Recovery will make sure to fill both "ros0/ros1" with ver3.55
      to prevent any possible Brick after updating to other CFWs ).

    - Once you're back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install any OFW/CFW 3.55 or a newer CFW 4.21

    Useful Hint: you can simply use CondorStrike's Updater package from XMB to enter Recovery Menu directly from XMB without going through several restart/shutdown sequences. --> Condor Updater v2.0



    - 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 )



    - Changing/Upgrading the HDD while on Rogero CFW4.21 should be done using the following steps :
    - Download the 4.25 downgrader PUP ---> 4.25 Downgrader     mirror ---> 4.25 Downgrader
      Size 176MB (184,595,263 bytes) MD5: 49d80e07fc1f5ca1b0840e02e94635db
    - Rename the downloaded file to "PS3UPDAT.PUP" and put it on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP"
    - Swap the current HDD with the New HDD, Turn the PS3 on, follow screen instructions and let it install the 4.25 downgrader CFW.
    - After the downgrader CFW installs you'll be on a hybrid CFW3.55 that will still shows ver4.21 from system settings.
    - Enable QA flag by following these steps:

    1- Download the Rebug QA_Toggle package from here ---> toggle_qa.pkg
    2- Put the "toggle_qa.pkg" on USB and Install it on the PS3.
    3- Run the "Rebug Toggle QA" from XMB, the screen will go Black and you will see HDD Led activity then if all went fine you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and the PS3 will Restart back to XMB.
    4- If you want to make sure QA flag was set, go to "Network Settings" then apply the following key combo (all at the same time):

    L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down

    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.

    - Now put "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" on your USB in: "USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP" ---> Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7.PUP
    - Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install "Rogero CEX-3.55 CFW V3.7" (from Recovery Menu, this is important)
    - Once you're back on Rogero CFW3.55 v3.7 Start the PS3 into Recovery Menu and install any OFW/CFW 3.55 or a newer CFW 4.21
