    As the 4.86 OFW update has the PS3 developer cranking out updates, we now have a couple Custom Firmware choices for capable PS3 models (to know if your PS3 model can install a CFW, simply load the exploits page of bguerville PS3 Toolset in your PS3 Browser, more info here) Its good having two well known developer's release CFW's since the 4.86 OFW update .

    First we had @Joonie (of team rebug & hfw developer) release 4.86 REBUG LITE, now we have another known Custom Firmware developer in @Alexander with the release of 4.86 FERROX COBRA.
    this cobra cfw comes with v8.20 of the payload and contains the usual tweaks in the FERROX brand . For those of you new to this CFW you can view some of the features listed below, the developer offer's some additional XMB mods that can be found in the source link provided below wi6th instructions in how to install. ​

      Didn't you think we were giving you a hole ..? The PS3 is not yet dead, in fact we have a new Firmware as you know, the 4.86. And I think it's not even the last ..

      As always, we do our job for the community, releasing the Cybermodding Custom Firmware, the good old FERROX . Here we are to present you the new CFW FERROX 4.86 , with integrated COBRA 8.20 functions.

      We know that developer Aldo Vargas ( @aldostools ) is working on a new version of COBRA, so it is not excluded that there will be other revisions of our FERROX too.
      Speaking of the CFW in question. There are no improvements in the system.
      It is practically equal to 4.85.​

      Can ps3 superslim instal this custom firmware?
    6. Coldheart2236
      No, no PS3 model beyond certain slim 25XXX versions can install custom firmware. A minimum factory firmware of 3.56 or below is required to install CFW, and so no super slim PS3s are compatible. You can still use HEN however.

      Wouhou! great news! Thanks Alexander to keep it up to date!

      Believe me i prefer HEN way over all CFW , because it is secure & faster .
    11. BitesZaDusto
      Nice! Thank you!
      Only one question: I have my CECHA01 PS3 running 4.86 Ferrox CFW and it doesn't boot PS2's disc-based backups (They were working perfectly in rebug cfw). Is the ps2_emu patched and I'm doing something wrong or maybe it doesn't support that function?

      Gio Tsomp
      is compatibility with all ps3 version?
    13. aldostools
      No. Only fat models and slim models that allow min firmware 3.56 and lower.

      Super slims and slim models 25xx with min firmware 3.60 and higher require PS3HEN.
