    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!

      Does your BD Drive work? Can you put a PS3 game disc and it plays? Do any other apps black screen when you try to use them....?
    3. nayt
      i'm sorry, i don't have BD PS3 Games, i just have BD PS4 Games
    4. Coldheart2236
      Do you have any Blu-ray films? To be honest, if you're testing your BD drive then any disc should suffice to perform that test. A DVD, even a CD would determine its functionality or not.
    5. Luisile
      This is only partialy true as ps3 uses a separate laser vor cd/dvd and for BD. I had on my 2004 issue where cd/dvd readig was perfect but no bd reading.
      so he must test al three media to determine if the lasers are wrong.

      Fair enough, should have realised that to be honest. So to fully test could be a Blu-ray movie, and then a DVD movie (for example).

      if he doesn't have any discs to test then it won't hurt to flash noBD cfw anyway.but it's easier to install any other homebrew or app and if it goes to blackscreen then it's safe to assume something is wrong with blueray drive and next step would be to install noBD cfw.
    9. insanetoker89
      Why would a blank screen mean his BD drive is faulty? He said he just updated ferrox from 4.82 to 4.84 and I'm assuming everything was fine before that?
    10. umart666
      in literally 90 percent of cases blackscreen when launching anything from xmb is due to some form of BD malfunction.and since he doesn't have any discs on hand other than trying with fresh install of any homebrew and/or app easiest and most reliable way of testing BD is to flash noBD cfw and seeing if anything launches.
    11. insanetoker89
      Ok, that makes no sense to me tho. Sometimes I get a blank screen for multiman also, and you know what fixes it? Deleting multiman and webman and reinstalling them. It's always just a corruption in the Homebrew app themselves or a something gone wrong when someone updates cfw. But honestly I don't know anything about how cfw or Homebrew works so just ignore me :)

      Edit: and my BD drive works flawlessly :)
    12. umart666
      your symptoms indicate issues with hdd.he clearly states that he can't launch anything and goes straight to blackscreen,when booting content ps3 does a drive/disc check,if it has issues it gets stuck at blackscreen.
    13. nayt
      No i don't have any BD films, only BD PS4 disk i have. Okay i will try with dvd

      Ok thank you for your advice, so i need to install noBD cfw ?
    15. nayt
      Yes you're correct, before update my ps3 cfw was fine

      there's no harm in doing it,if your bd is fine you can simply flash regular cfw back.

      No, you don't need to install noBD cfw unless your drive is really the problem. Try deleting multiman completely and reinstall it. If the problem is still there and all other Homebrew give a blank screen then trying downgrading back to 4.82 and see if they work then.

    18. umart666
      to go back to 4.82 cfw you need to QA flag your console,that's including at least couple of fw reinstalls,it definetly easier just to flash nobd cfw once to test,but yes,installing an app to check if it goes to blackscreen is the easiest way.
    19. insanetoker89
      A couple of fw reinstalls? And I thought I didn't know anything lol
    20. umart666
      first time you need to do all rogero downgrader route to be able to enable it,it's not just turning the setting in rebug toolbox.also,this is ferrox thread,so it's safe to assume that he doesn't have rebug anyway.
