    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!

      Oh now I’m understand ( Cobra like Add-on in CFW for more Thing can I do ) right ?

      If I’m go to buy PS3 now should have Cobra and Multiman after that I can turn on Rebug if available or downloading the tools if not available right ? Or Cobra have the Rebug I’m afraid after I’m see this pictures because this photo show me if I can do lock and unlock the trophy with only Rebug REX

      Yes, Cobra and Mamba are both a series of plugins which add on to standard CFW to expand the features of the CFW. I personally use Cobra, which is integrated in both Ferrox and Rebug - both of which I've used for a considerable amount of time.

      I don't really want to go off topic here since this is a thread about Ferrox CFW, but briefly:
      Rebug comes bundled with Rebug Toolbox, and just needs installing via the Package Manager. Cobra is enabled by default, and can be disabled using the Toolbox.

      The feature in Rebug to lock/unlock trophies only works offline, so it will not synch them up online with PSN. To be honest, if that's the only reason you want Rebug I'd stick with Ferrox Cobra which I have used and can highly recommend.

      Hey there I installed this CFW on my CECHA ps3 from ferrox 4.82 CFW. I've lost the ability to play my ps2 iso games the system just freezes after launching it through webman. How can I get that working again? I've downloaded and reinstalled the webman mod but it's still freezing
    5. Foxnull
      My guess is possibly webman wasn't working correctly with this firmware version even with the updated link. I downgraded back to 4.82 ferrox and all is working properly.

      Hi Everyone,
      I wanted to jailbreak my PS3 CECH 2504B on 4.84 on this website. I mistakenly turned it off. The problem now is the PS3 won’t turn on. It turns itself off after few seconds I turn it on. Please, how can I fix this? Thank you

      I would start your own thread as this is not the place for that, also the right people with the right knowledege will most likely not see this hidden away here on this thread.

      This is the support thread for Ferrox 4.84 CFW.

      But to put it simpley your PS3 is bricked, and will need your original flash dump (pre xploit dump) and a HW Flasher to sort out.

      Also with your PS3's model did you run "MinVerChk" to make sure your minimum factory installed firmware was 3.56 or below as certain CECH25*** slim model PS3's are not CFW compatible and you will brick it trying to jailbreak it.

      These "non-CFW" model PS3's can only run PS3HEN.

      Hi there,
      I like the FERROX CFW I wander is there a DEX version of it since I need that version to install tools needed for RTM modding for some games. most code I find ar for memory editing can you help with that please.
    13. Cypher_CG89
      There are no DEX versions as far as I remeber, if you need DEX then install REBUG REX and use the tool box to convert your PS3 to DEX. Its the only DEX CFW option really other than joonies Pasta DEX CFW but it still needs you to convert your PS3 to DEX using REBUG REX or own a DECH DEX DEBUG unit.

      I a bit of a rookie (I can't spot brick or issue doing things) can you point me to tutorial on how to switch from 4.82 to REBUG REX 4.8x please
    15. Cypher_CG89
      Simply just download the REBUG REX 4.84.2 pup file from > and then install like you did with Ferrox.

      Make sure its REX you download and not D-REX, as D-REX is for DEBUG units and already converted Retail PS3's from CEX to DEX.

      When installed follow these instructions to the letter in order.....

      After you have installed the REBUG REX CFW, go to "Package Manager" > Install Packages > Install from System Storage.... and then install "REBUG Toolbox".

      Once installed you then go into REBUG Toolbox, go to the "Utilities Column", scroll down til you find "Dump EID Root key" and follow the on screen instructions, your PS3 should then automatically reboot.

      Then go back into REBUG Toolbox, find the "CEX/DEX" Column, then select "Re-write Target-ID in Flash" and select that> this will convert your PS3 from CEX to DEX.

      Now there are a few things to do once on DEX to check to make sure you can still connect to PSN, But let me know by a simple PM on here as there are a few ways to do this but I'll tell you the quickest and simplest way to do this but is lenghty to explain all the steps properly without sending this thread way off topic....
