    MD5 check utility v2.31 - E5A1A4A431C25A1D8B2428066487FC45


    How to check MD5 check sums - Very important
    Spoiler:
    Start the MD5 check utility.
    Copy the relevant MD5 code and click paste in the program.
    Click on browse and select the file you want to verify.
    It will then start checking.
    Results: "The codes Match" - if it says this, then the files are good
    Note: If it says the codes do not match, then do not use that file!, transfer again and run another MD5 check. If it fails again, re-download the file.


    Step 1 - Preparing USB stick (format)
    Spoiler:
    Connect your USB stick to your computer.
    Go to my computer, right click on removable drive and click on format.
    File system = FAT32
    Allocation unit size = whatever is available
    You can quick format or full format, up to you.
    Then hit format.


    Step 2 - Preparing USB stick (folders)
    Spoiler:
    Create a folder called PS3, within that folder create a folder called UPDATE.
    So it will be like this - USB\PS3\UPDATE\


    Step 3 - Transfer files
    Spoiler:
    Copy and paste 3.55-OFW-PS3UPDAT.PUP into UPDATE folder.
    Rename 3.55-OFW-PS3UPDAT.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks, very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Installing 3.55 OFW
    Spoiler:
    Make sure there is no disc in BD and that no internet connection is available.
    Plug your USB into the far right USB port on your PS3.
    Then go to system update in XMB and from there select mass storage.
    You're done installing.
    Now follow 'Currently on 3.41OFW to 3.55OFW or 3.41CFW or 3.55CFW TB/Cobra'

    Step 1 - Preparing USB stick (format)
    Spoiler:
    Connect your USB stick to your computer.
    Go to my computer, right click on removable drive and click on format.
    File system = FAT32
    Allocation unit size = whatever is available
    You can quick format or full format, up to you.
    Then hit format.


    Step 2 - Preparing USB stick (folders)
    Spoiler:
    Create a folder called PS3, within that folder create a folder called UPDATE.
    So it will be like this - USB\PS3\UPDATE\


    Step 3 - Transfer 3.55CFW KMEAW, MultiMan, Showtime, and Toggle_QA.
    Spoiler:
    First copy and paste MultiMan, Showtime, & Toggle_QA to the root of the USB stick. (Eg USB:/multiMAN_ver_04.55.00_BASE_CEX_(20140209).pkg)
    Now Copy and paste 3.55-KMEAW-PS3UPDAT.PUP into the UPDATE folder.
    Once copied, rename 3.55-KMEAW-PS3UPDAT.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks on all the files, this is very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Get into recovery menu
    Spoiler:
    First make sure there is no game or any sort of disc inside the PS3. If there is, it is very important you take it out now!
    Now make sure the PS3 is off.
    Hold down the power button until it shuts down again.
    Let go and hold down the power button again, let go when you hear a double beep.
    You can also have a look at this video on how to get into recovery menu: (video by chickensonsticks)
    Spoiler:

    It will ask you to connect controller via usb cable and pressing the PS button, do that.


    Step 5 - Updating to 3.55CFW KMEAW
    Spoiler:
    Once your in recovery menu, plug your USB stick into the far right port.
    Select System update
    Now the rest is easy, accept everything and just follow on screen instructions.


    Step 6 - Installing MultiMan, showtime, and Toggle_QA
    Spoiler:
    Now you should be updated to 3.55CFW KMEAW.
    From XMB (ps3 menu), scroll over to games section and click on install packages.
    One by one click and install all.
    First install multiMAN ver 04.55.00 BASE and so on.


    Step 7 - Dehashing
    Spoiler:

    Now go to the game section in XMB.
    If you scroll down you should see Toggle_QA.
    Click on it, your screen will go black and it will reboot into XMB.
    Now go to network settings, don't click into it, just hover or highlight over it.
    Then all at once press the following combo - L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down
    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.
    If you do not see it, run the Toggle_QA program again until you see it.


    Step 8 - Nand/Nor backup (skip if you already have a valid backup) - Tutorial by FeintNightmare
    Spoiler:

    Note: You need to have atleast one PS3 game on your HDD.
    Note: If you do not, you can either FTP a game to it or you can run multiMAN, insert any original PS3 game, hover over the game and press triangle, then click copy.
    Note: Once you've created that backup, take out the disc and proceed with the tutorial.


    1. Insert a FAT32 formatted USB to the right-side port of your ps3 and run multiman.
    2. After it loads , start file manager/mmOS ( its an option that is there in Multiman)
    (NOTE: shortcut to start multiman's file manager SELECT+START)
    If a file manager is not open, click on PS3 root.
    3.when using file manager , go to to /dev_hdd/GAMES/* any game u have*/
    ( example: /dev_hdd/GAMES/CODBOP2/)
    and open the PS3_DISK.SFB file(or the param.sfo file of the game) by pressing 'X' 2 times on it.

    4. after u open the .SFB file u can see a lot of numbers ,shown in a hex-decimal form,
    as shown in the image
    press SELECT and u will get a LV2 View.

    5. when on LV2 view press start , (that is after we pressed select in step 4.)

    6. you will then get a message " Do u want to export GAMEOS LV2 memory to a file",press no, then it will show a message asking " Do u want to export HV LV1 memory to a file" say no for this as well, and then u will get a 3rd message asking "Do u want to export FLASH memory to a file" say yes to this.and it will start the dumbing process.the dumb will be saved to the root of ur usb.
    7. you can now exit multiman, disconnect the usb from ur ps3 and connect it to your pc,
    and inside the USB u can find a file named 201***FLASH-NOR-FW.3.55.NORBIN (if ur ps3 has NOR) or 201***FLASH-NAND-FW.3.55.NANDBIN( if ur ps3 is having NAND).


    Transfer nand/nor back up to your computer and keep it safe.


    Step 9 - Transfer 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00
    Spoiler:
    Plug USB into your computer and save your nand/nor backup at a safe place on your computer.
    Then quick format USB & recreate PS3/UPDATE folders. (step 1 & 2)
    Copy and paste Rogero_CEX4.55_V1.00.PUP into UPDATE folder.
    Rename Rogero_CEX4.55_V1.00.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks on it, very important!


    Step 10 - Updating to 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00
    Spoiler:
    Make sure there is still no disc in BD and that no internet connection is available.
    Plug your USB to your PS3.
    Then go to system update in XMB and from there select mass storage.
    You're done installing


    Step 11 - Final comments
    Spoiler:
    Now you should be on 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00.
    You should now unplug USB and format it.
    You should now keep a game in your BD drive to ensure 100% compatibility, I personally bought PES08 for 1.50 which I always keep inside.
    Some games have a higher firmware on the disc, so always remove discs before updating firmware.

    MultiMan and any other pkg files you need to install should be copied to the root of your USB. (ie in no folder)
    Copy and paste Rogero_CEX4.55_V1.00.PUP into UPDATE folder.
    Rename Rogero_CEX4.55_V1.00.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks, very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Installing pkg files - latest multiMAN, toggle_QA etc...
    Spoiler:
    From XMB (ps3 menu), scroll over to games section and click on install packages.
    One by one click and install all.
    First install multiMAN ver 04.55.00 BASE and so on.


    Step 5 - Dehashing
    Spoiler:

    Note: Dehashing is for 3.55CFW, it won't work in CFW4.21/CFW4.30, don't worry, if your on CFW4.21/CFW4.30 you can simply skip it.
    Note: Disable any spoofers, or this won't work.

    Go to Game XMB and if you scroll down you should see Toggle_QA.
    Click on it, your screen will go black and it will reboot into XMB.
    Now go to network settings, don't click into it, just hover or highlight over it.
    Then all at once press the following combo - L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down
    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.
    If you do not see it, run the Toggle_QA program again until you see it.


    Step 6 - Nand/Nor backup (skip if you already have a valid backup) - Tutorial by FeintNightmare
    Spoiler:

    Note: You need to have atleast one PS3 game on your HDD.
    Note: If you do not, you can either FTP a game to it or you can run multiMAN, insert any original PS3 game, hover over the game and press triangle, then click on copy.
    Note: Once you've created that backup, take out the disc and proceed with the tutorial.


    1. Insert a FAT32 formatted USB to the right-side port of your ps3 and run multiman.
    2. After it loads , start file manager/mmOS ( its an option that is there in Multiman)
    (NOTE: shortcut to start multiman's file manager SELECT+START)
    If a file manager is not open, click on PS3 root.
    3.when using file manager , go to to /dev_hdd/GAMES/* any game u have*/
    ( example: /dev_hdd/GAMES/CODBOP2/)
    and open the PS3_DISK.SFB file(or the param.sfo file of the game) by pressing 'X' 2 times on it.

    4. after u open the .SFB file u can see a lot of numbers ,shown in a hex-decimal form,
    as shown in the image
    press SELECT and u will get a LV2 View.

    5. when on LV2 view press start , (that is after we pressed select in step 4.)

    6. you will then get a message " Do u want to export GAMEOS LV2 memory to a file",press no, then it will show a message asking " Do u want to export HV LV1 memory to a file" say no for this as well, and then u will get a 3rd message asking "Do u want to export FLASH memory to a file" say yes to this.and it will start the dumbing process.the dumb will be saved to the root of ur usb.
    7. you can now exit multiman, disconnect the usb from ur ps3 and connect it to your pc,
    and inside the USB u can find a file named 201***FLASH-NOR-FW.3.55.NORBIN (if ur ps3 has NOR) or 201***FLASH-NAND-FW.3.55.NANDBIN( if ur ps3 is having NAND).

    Transfer nand/nor back up to your computer and keep it safe.


    Step 7 - Installing 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00
    Spoiler:
    Make sure there is no disc in BD and that no internet connection is available.
    Plug your USB to your PS3.
    Then go to system update in XMB and from there select mass storage.
    Your done installing


    Step 8 - Final comments
    Spoiler:
    Now you should be on 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00.
    You should now unplug USB and format it.
    You should now keep a game in your BD drive to ensure 100% compatibility, I personally bought PES08 for 1.50 which I always keep inside.
    Some games have a higher firmware on the disc, so always remove discs before updating firmware.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Spoiler:

    1. Can I use this on my PS3 that has any OFW above 3.55?
    Spoiler:
    No


    2. Can I downgrade my 3.56+ OFW to 3.55OFW/CFW?
    Spoiler:
    You might be able to downgrade to 3.55 by using a hardware flasher such as E3 or Progskeet, however, the problem is that your PS3 must have a minimum downgradeable firmware of 3.55 or below.
    If your PS3 has a minimum downgradeable firmware of 3.56, you can use a hardware flasher to directly go onto a 4.xx CFW using the right patches.
    I prefer using the PS3 Flash Tool v4.50 (by Swizzy & Rogero) which will apply the necessary patches to go directly to Rogero's 4.50 CFW.
    You can check the SKU page on PS3DevWiki to determine whether or not your console is downgradeable to 3.56 or below.
    Code:
    http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/SKU_Models
    If your PS3 does not have a minimum downgradeable firmware of 3.56 or below, you still have another option, ODE (or also known as ODDE).
    An ODE is an Optical Drive Emulator, this is not really a hack but you do gain the ability to play backups etc, even on consoles that are not hackable.
    You should of course check if the ODE that you're interested in is compatible with the model you have.
    The downside is that these ODE's are pretty expensive (you might argue the same for flashers) and are far from CFW.
    Ah and depending on your PS3, they might require some soldering.
    The two well known PS3 ODE's are 3K3Y and Cobra.
    3K3Y would be a better option if you're considering an ODE, but if you're able to get CFW, get CFW.


    3. Is 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00 stable?
    Spoiler:
    Yes


    4. I'm on 3.55CFW KMEAW or any other 3.55CFW, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Follow the tutorial labeled 'Currently on any CEX CFW3.55 up to CFW4.55'
    However if you're using TB/Cobra/Geohot, follow 'Currently on 3.41OFW to 3.55OFW or 3.41CFW/3.55CFW TB/Cobra/Geohot'


    5. I'm on a 4.xxCFW Rebug REX or LITE, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Follow the tutorial labeled ' Currently on any CEX CFW3.55 up to CFW4.55'
    It's best if you go into Toolbox and set the mode to normal beforehand.


    6. I'm on any cex 4.xxCFW or Rogero's other v1.xx, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Follow the tutorial labeled 'Currently on any CEX CFW3.55 up to CFW4.55'


    7. Are you sure I can go straight from any cex 3.55CFW/4.21CFW/4.30CFW/CFW4.40/CFW4.46/CFW4.50/CFW4.55 to 4.55CFW Rogero v1.00?
    Spoiler:
    Yes.


    8. Some of your posts are contradictory, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Only older posts will seem contradictory. This is because the tutorial used to be different as it was made for 4.30cfw v2.00.
    Time has passed and there have been many changes.
    So if any of my posts contradict this tutorial, then this tutorial takes precedence.
    This tutorial is kept up to date, the same can not be done for all posts.


    9. Do I need to dehash?
    Spoiler:
    Dehashing is only needed for downgraded consoles but since people do buy pre-owned consoles or get them as gifts, there can be uncertainty as to whether or not a console has ever been downgraded from 3.56+.
    So to avoid any problems, I've included it in the tutorial for all to do, after all it only takes a minute and whether your console is downgraded or non-downgraded, it won't cause any harm.


    10. Do I really need a nand/nor backup, and if so, why?
    Spoiler:
    This backup is for people to keep for the future.
    For whatever reason, if you somehow manage to brick your console, any time in the future for whatever reason, a nand backup may be needed to recover using a hardware flasher.
    This is solely for people to keep in case they ever need it. If you have a nand backup already, maybe one you created yourself or one that some one created for you, then you can skip the step.
    Perhaps you're familiar with the Wii Scene, if so you'll know pretty much all tutorials have a nand backup step, this is similar to that, as in the backup is not needed for the installation itself but it is always highly recommended to have one incase something ever goes wrong.


    11. Will the content that I currently have get deleted?
    Spoiler:
    No


    12. I'm on 3.55CFW, will my current games work?
    Spoiler:
    Your normal unpatched games should work fine, in some cases you might need to update through multiMAN but they will work fine.
    As for your patched/fixed games, some will work and some won't.
    If a 3.55 fixed game does not work, try deleting game data & then updating the game.
    Then if your game is still not working, you'll need to replace the eboot with the original eboot.
    As for some of you that have TB patched games, these are more problematic and usually require the recovery of all the original files that were patched.
    PSN games will most likely need resigning, check the tutorials section. Beharii's tutorial is a good one to look at.


    13. Will my current apps work?
    Spoiler:
    Depends on which CFW you're moving from.
    If you're moving from a 3.xx CFW, then they most likely will need resigning but keep in mind not all apps work as they should after resigning.
    Popular apps do get updated for the newer cfw.
    Resigning apps is pretty much the same as doing PSN games, so Beharii's tutorial is a good one.

    If you're moving from 4.xx CFW then most likely they will continue to work just fine.
    There are some apps that are CFW version specific and these will need updating by the developers.


    14. Do we need to patch/fix any games on 4.55CFW like we do on 3.xxCFW?
    Spoiler:
    No


    15. Are MD5 checks really necessary?
    Spoiler:
    MD5 checks are to check the integrity of the files.
    It tells you whether or not the file is what it should be.
    Lets say I have a file on my computer that I want to send to you.
    The possible errors that can occur without us knowing are during my upload & your download, aswell as during your transfer to any other devices such as a USB stick.
    So if there were any problems, you'd have a corrupt file without knowing, because there had been no MD5 checks.

    Now lets discuss why MD5 are of great importance when it comes to PS3.
    First of all, if you skipped MD5 on pkg files & they were corrupt, then most likely you'd get errors with the app and it wouldn't function as it is supposed to. The fix in most situation would be a reinstall.
    If you skipped MD5 on the CFW(pup), and it was corrupt, you will brick your PS3.
    MD5 checks do not take long & it is worth doing.


    16. Is it safe to access PSN?
    Spoiler:
    No it is not safe to access PSN.
    You will at some point get banned because CFW is detectable.
    Console ban just means you can't access PSN anymore.

    Having said that one can reduce their ban risk, which is better than nothing.
    To do this one should do the following:
    Delete normal mM and configure and use Hijam's 04.55.xx multiMAN stealth mod to mount games.
    Then use PSNpatch by KW to temporarily remove some CFW syscalls.
    Then boot up the game and sign into PSN once in game menu.
    There's probably a detailed tutorial available in the tutorials section.

    OFW = Official firmware
    CFW = Custom firmware
    JB = Jailbreak
    mM = multiMAN (backup manager)

    It will still be 4.30CFW v2, but it is spoofed as 4.31.
    So in system info it will show up as 4.31 but it is actually still 4.30, this should protect you from updates for the moment.

    If your on a 3.55CFW other than Rogero's, then you should first make a nand/nor back up (step 8) unless you already have one.
    Then you should dehash (step 7). Then you should update to 3.55OFW using recovery menu.
    Then follow this guide from the start.

    Jumping to Rogero's 3.55cfw v3.7 before 4.30cfw v2 is much safer.
    First do the above to get to 3.55OFW, then you can follow this guide from the start.
    I've heard of some people going from a different 3.55cfw to rogero's 4.30cfw, but that is not the correct method and you may experience problems.

    I'm not too sure about the problem your having with Spiderman. You'll have to check after updating whether or not it makes a difference.

    EDIT: NOTE: This is an old post from when this tutorial was based on v2.00. Please ignore this post.

    thanks a lot for your guidance bro. is they any way to check whether my ps3 belongs to rogero or anyother becuase i bought a jailbroken ps3 which included rogero manager 8.2 for playing games so i guess my ps3 belongs to rogero but please confirm me if there is any way to check it! also if i am on rogero, do i need to make a nand/nor back up and do i need to get 3.55OFW? also if i successfully update to 4.30cfw, would it be easy and safe to get back to 3.55 if i want to update to any future cfw higher than 4.30cfw.

    EDIT: I also even dont know what nand/nor back up is. please clarify this too.

    Thanks

    Thanks
    Rogero Manager is a old back up manager. This doesn't mean your on his firmware. I think most likely your on KMEAW.
    I don't know of a proper method to checking which cfw you have, as far as I know, you can only check the version by going to system info in either xmb or multiman.

    So do step 1 to quick format your usb and put MultiMan pkg on it. You can find it in the tutorial above.
    Install that using 'install package files' from games section in xmb.
    Then you can do step 8 to nand/nor back up and then step 7 to dehash.
    Then you can go into recovery step 4, and do a system update (from mass storage) to 3.55OFW.
    From there you should follow this guide from the start.

    A nand/nor backup, in simple words is a backup of your internal memory.
    If you were to brick your console, you always have that backup to restore via hardware flasher.
    Save that nand or nor backup on your computer.

    Downgrading back from 4.30 to 3.55 is easy.
    4.30cfw >> downgrader pup (xmb update) >> dehash >> 3.55cfw rogero v3.7 (recovery menu update)>> dehash >> 3.55ofw (recovery menu update).

    I might write a tutorial on downgrading from 4.30 tomorow.

    edit: Sorry I just noticed I forgot to answer one of your questions from your last post regarding backing up games. There is no need to backup games, but some games (3.56+) might have been patched to run on 3.55cfw, those patched ones may not work.

    EDIT: NOTE: This is an old post from when this tutorial was based on v2.00. Please ignore this post.
