    4.66 Custom Firmware (CFW):
    STANDARD CFW



    COBRA CFW



    REBUG REX CFW

    • n /a
    DUALBOOT FIRMWARE

    GENERAL TIPs / Task to perform before a CFW Install:

    • MAKE SURE THERE IS NO GAME DISC INSIDE THE CONSOLE
    • ALWAYS verify the PUP's MD5
    • Disable any Spoofs
    • If you do not own a HARDWARE FLASHER or have the means to recover from a possiable brick. DO NOT RUSH to install a CFW / MFW Release. Allow the community to conduct test as some CFW do not get proper testing and even ones that do some models can act differenly so its best to give it at least a 3 day wait. Usually brick reports happen the first 24-48 Hours.
    • It's good practice to QA Flag your console. before installing a new CFW.
    • Always a good idea to dump your eid_root_key
    • Can be useful to take 1 or 2 dumps of you flash after a successful upgrade.
    • Backup your Game Saves and edat/rif files to a pendrive, external HDD or FTP to PC.

    USE ANY CFW AT YOUR RISK

    You should stick a Cobra CFW IMHO...

    The features are too good to pass up,, some may say well MAMBA payload in iris manager and forks can do most cobra task and they would be correct. MOST. but not all.

    1.) Auto boot of plugins. Cobra Only.
    2.) Network Loading of PS3/PS1/DVD/BD/ and installation of packages from the network.

    So much easier and more freedom IMO then any of the MAMBA payload supported apps.

    But REBUG is not overwhelming. As you can essentially turn off many of it feature or simple do not use them in the REBUG toolbox.

    But if you had to pick between ferrox and darknet i would say darknet, but essentially they are the same but a few minor differences .. but i would put REBUG way ahead and as i have said REBUG is what you make it to be. If you want to REBUg to be a simple firmware its easy to do.


    Normal Mode
    CEX Menu type
    Turn off Cobra (which i would never do :) , i like the features way to much)

    Then you basically have a standard CFW.

    Just for information:

    2 users from ps3pirata reported a brick after installing GAMESONIC 336 SPOOF 4.46.

    After trying recovery 1 time consoles are dead.

    Ive suggested them to try another HDD to reinstall the cfw , and NO format the original hdd.

    I have no more details about this, so becarefull before install a spoof, always reset the console before anything to clean the system.

    Welcome to the forums.. (just out of curiosity how did you find out. (We are still new (but LONG time scene veterans so i get curious :) ).

    To help with your question;

    If you are on 4.66 OFW (Official Firmware) then no you can not jailbreak.

    Depending on your Console Model # , you may be able to use a Hardware Flasher to downgrade., but if you have a model that cant be downgraded then you cant have CFW.

    ---
    What alot of people do is get someone to Downgrade ( a few of our mods do have downgrade services in [MENTION=11]No0bZiLLa[/MENTION] and [MENTION=61]pinkfloydviste[/MENTION] I never sent a console to these guys but i have seen plenty of people happy with their work) or if your Leary of sending your console to someone, you can sell your current units and find one that is on 3.55 OFW or lower. You can find many on ebay that are on 3.55 OFW

    We are very helpful community and will be here to help. We do not spoon feed every bit of info but we do answer questions and help anyone wiling to learn. So dont hesitate to ask questions.

    ---

    but just as a FYI for if you ever get a model that can install CFW: 4.66 FERROX (NO-BD EDITION) v1.00 this one you would never want to install unless you have a broken BluRay Drive. That is just for those consoles. So if you ever do get a chance to install CFW stay clear of that one if your have a working bluray drive otherwise your drive will not work while it is installed.

    Not sure if i seen that myself. I was not aware that GameSonic guys released a standalone spoof.
    You have a link?

    [MENTION=401]rez2011[/MENTION] I can indeed downgrade your ps3 for 25 bucks + return shipping.

    Also [MENTION=2]STLcardsWS[/MENTION] very nice list so far man. Great work :)

    I think anyone could understand that concern (sucks you lost an XBOX), The best bet would be to look for a console on Ebay that is on 3.55 OFW they are always there.

    We are here for any help or questions you may have. We always ask that someone try and search first but sometime a search comes with mixed results so we are always here to help.

    The only option for ps3's on ofw's above 3.55 is a hardware flash. That being said, not all ps3 models can be downgraded. Specifically, the following ps3 models can be downgraded: all fats, all cech-2001, all cech-2101, most cech2501. None of the cech-3001 or slims can be downgraded or used to run cfw. Hope that helps.
