    Alexander is here with 4.81 FERROX Standard Edition (v1.00) CFW, following the release of 4.81 DARKNET by darkjiros . Also a Standard CEX firmware built from 4.81 Firmware comes with the usual options and features for FERROX, but if you recall for 4.80 the developer did something different adding some XMB Mods and adding the link to the CyberModding Homebrew Store, which many liked seeing the mods and other did not. So Alexander has two flavors planned one that is the "cleaned" version and then another that is a modded version. First up is the standard version and the mooded version to come soon.

      • Take a USB FAT32 formatted, and create a new folder called PS3, inside this create another 'other still called UPDATE, and inside latter' inseriteci the PS3UPDAT.PUP File, which would be the custom firmware.
      • Insert the USB in the far right of the PS3 port.
      • Be sure to: Remove any disc from the player Ps3, Remove any games loaded with any Manager, Disable Internet Connection.
      • Ok. You can choose to install the CFW from the XMB or from Recovery.
      • On the XMB will just go into 'Settings' column, then 'System Upgrade' and choose 'With storage media'. Select the CFW and will start the process.
      • To enter Recovery Instead, turn off the console. Turn it back on by holding down the Power button until the console is turned off again. Now turn it back on by holding down the Power button until you hear two beeps very close. Then release the Power button! Recovery time from the menu, select 'System Update' and follow the instructions.
      • For a clean installation, you can install 2 times the CFW. You can also go back into Recovery and click Options for Rebuilding the Database and Restore the System File. So you'll have a setup more than clean and safe.

      • CECH G04 - LIZZO
      • CECH 2104A - LIZZO
      • CECH 2004b - Red Dead
      • CECH 2504B - Red Dead

      CFW is stable, as always! [​IMG]

      At the time of writing this (see this thread for updates) post there are no Homebrew Compatible with CFW 4.81. We should wait for the release by higher Dev scene.

      So for the moment, you can use the FERROX 4.81 to Play Online with your Disk Games.


      By installing this custom firmware, for now you will not have the opportunity to play with your backup as mentioned. There are applications and Backup Manager Compatible with CFW 4.81, but it will come soon.
      If you have games on disk and you want to play and go online, use PSNPatch !!!
      PSNPatch is an application to mask the CFW, and is compatible with all CFW 4.xx.
      SEN Enabler for now is not compatible with 4.81, your only choice when to NOT be Banned Online, is precisely PSNPatch.

      So first of all initiated PSNPatch and press X at the main menu.
      After that enter the game and start it.

      Currently, working on FERROX COBRA. So just for now we have the clean version of FERROX. For the version with Mod Graphics, we will have to wait a few hours. Do not worry, everything will come as soon as possible [​IMG]
