    PS3 Custom Firmware developer @Alexander has now released his 4.84 FERROX COBRA (7.55) CFW adding a new flavor to the 4.84 Custom Firmware mix. This Cobra CFW comes equipped with the latest Cobra 7.55 payload (which should perform like 4.83 FERROX Cobra) and allows for all the usual Cobra (v7.55) CFW features. Some of those features include Plugin Support (like webMAN), as well as ISO Support (Ps1/PS2/PS3/PSP/BD/DVD) are just a few abilities that Cobra adds to a firmware. Also developer Alexander includes an optional MOD Installer for some extra features and eye candy (see tab for more info). For full feature set and details checkout the included (translated) release notes provided​

    if you have any feedback you can find @Alexander at his home site of and also here in our psx-place forums.

    • FERROX Mods Installer

      If you like our Homebrew Store, or the Graphic Mods seen in the FERROX 4.80, this Installer is for you.

      This Installer was created on the basis of the XMBM + Team installer and inside it you will find the possibility to install or uninstall the Mods and the Homebrew Store. The installer was introduced into the Custom Firmware. This means that you will always have it available, without having to use a USB stick

      To install the PKG, simply go to the "Package Manager", and navigate to Install the File Package - Internal Storage of the PS3 system. The installer will always be there, but if you want you can delete it via File Manager from the dev_blind / ferrox / pkg directory.

      Below are some screens:

      Use is really simple, there is not much to explain. You can install the Mods, and you can always reinstall the original files from the installer at any time. Ditto for the Store.

      Below I leave a video demonstration

      CyberModding Homebrew Store
      In addition to the Graphic Mods you see, the installer integrated into the CFW gives us the possibility to install the Cybermodding homebrew Store. I think now all of you Cybermodding users know our store. We have recently added and updated lots of mods for GTAV.

      If you want to take a look at our post on the latest version of the Store, here is the Link: Click HERE!

      This is still vague..... and does not make much sense to me.... lets just forget the YT app lol.

      Are you currently on CFW or OFW, from what you have said you are on FERROX 4.83 CFW correct?
    2. Kragle
      Okay so from 4.82 CFW I went to 4.83 OFW . From OFW I went to FERROX 3.83 CFW. Sony then asked for another update 4.84 OFW and I thought it be fine as it's been done before
    3. Cypher_CG89
      Now I get you, really there was no need to do all that to and from CFW to OFW as SEN Enabler would spoof your FW version for you so you didn't have to do that.

      Now your stuck on OFW, and the only way to get CFW back is with a Hardware flasher. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
    4. Kragle
      Aw shucks :( ok buddy, thank you for the confirmation! They are so expensive.. might be easier to get another PS3 lol
    5. Cypher_CG89
      If you get another PS3 you might be in the same boat, the hardware flashers aren't that expensive.

      £30 or less for an E3 NOR Hardware flasher if your PS3 is NOR, not sure on a NAND HW Flasher as I have never used one.

      I can just update overflow 4.8.4 to ferrox 4.8.4? overflow not bad firmware-but does not work webman...
    7. Jxhnny
      Hi, i am New in this things, i dont have idea how to install this program, if someone could help me please
    8. Cypher_CG89
      On one of the overflow threads I made an XML that would sort that issue out if you want to continue to use it.
    9. Alexander
      Is Overflow's aware of the Bug?
      However you can easily update from XMB from Overflows's cfws to Ferrox Cobra.

      First off is your PS3 Jailbroken? This will not install if it is not..... Then you will need different advise.

      If it is jailbroken then you need to put the pup file on a FAT32 MBR format USB Flash drive. On this USB Flash drive create a folder called " PS3 " in then in this folder make another called " UPDATE ", then place the pup file in there and make sure it's called " PS3UPDAT.PUP " then put the USB into the USB port closet to the BD Drive ( The right hand USB Port ).

      Once you have done this make sure there are no Disc's in the BD Drive and you have disabled the PS3's Internet connection from the Network Settings on the XMB then go to System Update, then select " Update via Storage Media ".

      (With the folder names for the USB don't include the "" in them.)

      Can you explain what you mean by not working? Do you mean it won't show up on the XMB? or just won't work at all.

      This fix works well, but when I use an sen enabler, everything disappears again
