How to install Rogero 4.30 v2.05 on your PS3

Written by Tech84 on January 8, 2013

Update: Rogero has released the latest version of his custom firmware with Rogero 4.40 v1.02 cfw (can be installed via XMB). Here’s the link for the tutorial on How to install Rogero 4.40 v1.02 on your PS3

Rogero is back again with a new improved 4.30 v2.05 CFW for your PS3, if you have been following the custom firmware scene you know the latest available custom firmware is the Rogero 4.30 cfw. Although it had some minor hiccups, it was a pretty solid cfw. And now with the 4.30 v2.05 update a lot of fixes has been included like the demo mode bug among others.

The best thing about the Rogero 4.30 v2 cfw is that you can now install it from the XMB, and installing it via recovery mode is not required anymore.

How to install Rogero 4.30 v2.05 on your PS3




Here’s how to install Rogero 4.30 v2.05 on your PS3:



Installation Files:
Download Rogero 4.30 v2.05 cfw here (Mirror Here) (another mirror here)

Requirements:
A USB Flash drive (Must be big enough to accommodate the installation files) or an external HD
A PS3 running Official Firmware version 3.55 or
A PS3 running on 3.55 Kmeaw cfw or
A PS3 running on Rogero 3.55 cfw or
A PS3 running on Rogero 4.21 cfw or
A PS3 running on Rogero 4.30 cfw
(other types of cfw not mentioned here have been reported to work but the ones mentioned here are the most common ones that have been confirmed to work)
This will NOT WORK on PS3′s running any Official Firmware higher than 3.55 (you will need to downgrade to 3.55 first.)
Also, if you come from a downgraded PS3 (you were on a firmware 3.60 or higher and then downgraded to 3.55) you would need to Dehash your PS3 first.

Here are the steps:
IMPORTANT!
Remove any discs inside your PS3 when performing the update, if you do not, there is a big chance that the PS3 will install the latest Official Firmware that is loaded in Disc instead of the CFW that you want to install. If that happens, you will be stuck with the Official Firmware and would need to Downgrade your PS3 if you want it to run CFW. (Downgrading a PS3 from any Official Firmware version higher than 3.55 is not an easy task and would need hardware flashers etc.)
Note: If you are installing from 3.55, remember to Toggle QA Flag first for a safer install. If you do not know how to do it, here is a tutorial on How to Toggle QA Flag.

    1. Download the file “Rogero_CEX_4.30_v2.05.PUP “ and rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    2. Create a new folder on the Root of your USB flash drive or External HD and name it “PS3” ( it would look like this: x:PS3 where X is the drive)
    3. Create a new folder inside the “PS3” folder we just created and name it “UPDATE” . ( it would now look like this: x:PS3/UPDATE)
    4. Copy the PS3UPDAT.PUP file we renamed and place it inside the “UPDATE” folder we just created. ( it should now go something like this: x:PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    3. Insert your USB or External HD into your PS3
    4. Turn on your PS3, go to System update and select “Update via Storage Media”
    5. Just follow any on screen instructions that would come up.
    6. And you’re done!

Alternatively, here are the steps on how to install Rogero 4.30 v2.05 via recovery mode:

    1. Download the file “Rogero_CEX_4.30_v2.05.PUP “ and rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    2. Create a new folder on the Root of your USB flash drive or External HD and name it “PS3” ( it would look like this: x:PS3 where X is the drive)
    3. Create a new folder inside the “PS3” folder we just created and name it “UPDATE” . ( it would now look like this: x:PS3/UPDATE)
    4. Copy the PS3UPDAT.PUP file we renamed and place it inside the “UPDATE” folder we just created. ( it should now go something like this: x:PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    5. While your PS3 is on, turn it off by pressing and holding the power button until it turns off
    6. When the PS3 is OFF, press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps
    7. When this happens, the PS3 should boot up in recovery Mode (if it does not, repeat steps 5 and 6)
    8. While on recovery mode, select option 6 (System Update)
    9. Just follow any on screen instructions that would come up.
    10. And you’re done!

Note: if you notice, this tutorial is almost very much the same with my old tutorial on the first how to install Rogero 4.30 on your PS3, but this time you can install this update safely via the XMB.

After updating to Rogero 4.30 v2.05 you would need to update your Multiman to compliment your new updated CFW, here’s the link on How to install Multiman 4.18.0.

Credits and kudos of course goes to Rogero and the helpful people over at Tortuga-Cove

“This CFW was tested on most PS3 Models by different testers and no problems were encountered. But as any CFW release you must install it with caution and by following proper instructions, No one will be held responsible for any damage caused.” – Rogero

    Sir my ps3 starts freezing and skipping after i watch dvd movie on rogero 4.30 v2.03 so i tried to update to 4.30 v2.05 but still same problem occurs after my update. I dont know i think i have corrupted ps3 data somehow so im planning to Restore PS3 system # 5 in Recovery menu or Hard Reset my PS3. My question is after i done this 2 options, it will remove my jailbreak or not? If yes which ofw i will have after ive done this, i dont know my stock firmware also if incase i lose my jb i can return it back. Tnx..

    • Tech84 says:

      You can try to “Restore Default Settings” and see if it fixes the problem. Be careful though, DO NOT use the “Restore PS3 System” because it will delete everything on your hard drive clean. (Both options, does not affect your current firmware though.)

      Also, try checking if your HD is already at max capacity. Also check the disc, could just be a case of a dirty disc.

      • Balbon says:

        Meaning sir if I will choose either “Restore Default Settings” or “Restore PS3 System” will not affect my Rogero 4.30 v2.05 custom firmware. I can still play backup games and install home brew apps?

          • Balbon says:

            thnaks sir!!!

            • Balbon says:

              Sir, I already did “Restore Default Settings” but still freezing /skipping issue was there. My HDD have a lot of space. I was notice it also during cinematic scene before game play, it freezes/skips, now i’m planning to HARD RESET/SYSTEM RESET my console (turn off the power and turn off the main power in back. While holding the power on button in front, turn on the power in back and release the front power button AFTER the second beep. You will need to redo all your settings since the reset will clear everything). My questions is, if i will do this HARD RESET/SYSTEM RESET, it will also remove my Jailbreak or not? Tnx!

              • Tech84 says:

                No it will not remove or affect your firmware. I tried to replicate this on a PS3 with 4.30 v2.05 but did not encounter the same problem you have.

                • Balbon says:

                  I will try next “RESTORE PS3 SYSTEM”, if not work then i will do “HARD RESET”. Both options as you said will NOT affect/ERASE my CFW. If still not work i think the problem is with my HDD as they said i need to change HDD…But sir, now my question is what is the Difference between RESTORE PS3 SYSTEM and HARD RESET? or this are both the same thing…? I don’t know why I have strange problem now. Hope it can be solve with my remaining options…

                  • Tech84 says:

                    Those 2 are diferent, the Restore Default Settings will only reset the user profiles, themes and others. While the Restore PS3 System will restore the whole system (except firmware of course), inlcuding wiping your PS3′s hardrive clean as if it was newly bought.

                    • Balbon says:

                      Sir, thanks for your answers. I already did both “Restore Dafault Settings” & “Restore PS3 System” but unfortunately my freezing/skipping problem still there. I’m planning to HARD RESET now, i just what to know the difference beteween “Restore PS3 System” & “HArd Reset”. Are these 2 having thesame or different result after?

                    • Tech84 says:

                      Restore Default Settings would only delete you user info, reset themes etc while Restore PS3 System would delete everything including wiping your HD clean.

                      Both however, would not affect the firmware.

  2. Riga says:

    is there any big chance my ps3 will brick because i install it from XMB menu?
    how can i toogle QA if i install it from recovery mode?

    • Tech84 says:

      Low chance, but as with any cfw, the chances of bricking will always be there.

      Rogero himself states that:

      “This CFW was tested on most PS3 Models by different testers and no problems were encountered. But as any CFW release you must install it with caution and by following proper instructions, No one will be held responsible for any damage caused.”

  3. ivan says:

    hi, Using rogero 2.05, i copied some of my cd’s to an external hard drive. but ps3 cannot read some of them , tries to ”verify” but verifying never ends. I plan to change my hard drive. My question is: so i want to know how can i change hard drive? and if i change it, will my cfw disappear? my original ofw was 3.55, what will happen if i change hard drive? thanks…

  4. ivan says:

    if i do as following will it work? can you tell me please:
    At the moment I have cfw 4.30 v2.05 on ps3.
    I will backup my current ps3 hdd to an external hard drive using ps3′s original backup utility.
    I will install the new bigger hard drive, then I will install OFW 3.55, then
    I will restore my old data, then
    I will install CFW 4.30.
    Is this OK? can i follow this steps? is ”backing up from cracked ps3 and then restoring to ps3 with OFW 3.55 and then installing CFW 4.30” a problem?
    thanks…

    • Tech84 says:

      I don’t have any experience swiping out a new hard drive yet so I cannot give a proper answer to this. If I ever have an answer I think this will deserve a new article so I can cover the basic step by step procedure, till then I can only say you should proceed with caution.

  5. Geeza says:

    Can anyone confirm if this can be updated directly from 3.55 TRUE BLUE CFW?

  6. vinay says:

    i recently updated to rogero 4.30v2.05 but now how too install multi man and where r the links.
    thanks in advance

  7. Shiro says:

    I’ve tried playing Rise of the guardians DUPLEX release using multiman 04.12.00 externally and internally. It brings me back to XMB and gives error code, “An error occurred during the start operation (80010017). PS3′s running on Rogero CFW 4.30 v2.05. What am I doing wrong? :\

  8. vinay says:

    but the problem is i have not installed multiman earlier

  9. Musisi says:

    is there any recomended MM for Rogero CFW 4.30 v2.05?????

  10. Memo says:

    Why is toggle QA important? Do I HAVE to do it? (I have installed kmeaw 3.55 – never have to downgrade to install CFW) … Can I just install rogero 4.30 v 2.05 from update in xmb without QA toggle?

    • Ted says:

      I would never trust those, they are just like the True Blue guys. I read that they take stuff freely from the homebrew scene, add some really non essential and very minor features and wrap in DRM to make money.

      They are just a bunch of money hungry devs.

      • seravikeren says:

        but it’s very hot top topic in all forum…they very sure bout that…and someone in one forum (i Forgot which the forum) has confirmed that news really f**k true….he/she very very very sure
        if it true..what do you thing bout sony would do????will sony release some new series for their consol maybe 5xxx series..fufufufuf i really excited to wait february……

    SIr, will this work on 4.31?

  12. LittleRed says:

    Hi my ps3 is on 3.55 OFW and it’s never been soft modded. Can I still install rogero 4.30 from XMB? Thank you.

    • Tech84 says:

      Yes, but i would suggest the safer route, Toggle QA, then install Rogero 3.55 first via Recovery mode, and then Toggle QA again and then recovery mode, install Rogero 4.30 cfw

  13. Anonymous says:

    Yes
    See the installation details above

  14. Jared says:

    I have 3.55 kmeaw with all my games on the internal drive (1TB internal). If I update to Rogero 4.30 through XBM, will it erase multiman games and ROMs? Or will it only affect system data and my files are untouched? Pretty much, should i backup to external first?

  15. Bladerunner says:

    Tech84, many thanks for this tut! it worked like a charm.

  16. Almo3tamd says:

    Hey how is it going? I would like to thank you I follow your instruction step by step and I finally managed to upgrade my PS3 slim to Rogero 4.30 now I can play games online like call of duty, but unfortunately I have a problem with some games it doesn’t work like ACR “BLES01466″ and DMC “BLES01698″ finally Deus EX revolution “BLES01150″ and also farcry 3 “no saving during playing” – another think I’ve noticed on my xmb it shows that my CFW is 4.31 I though it has to be 4.30 not 4.31 anyway I strongly need to make this games work like it were before on 3.55 it gives me black screen however I choose permission and also mirror but the same result “black screen” any advice please

    • Ted says:

      Hey, the 4.31 is normal Rogero made that so it would be able to also play games that require 4.31. As for the games not working, a couple of possibilities though, one way is do delete the “game Data” on the ps3 then install it again. Or the games have been modified to play on 3.55 and would need to be “resigned” to it’s original eboot.

  18. Saiax says:

    One Question.

    I brought a new ps3 with a older firmware 3.14. Do I need to update to 3.55 OFW before I install custom firmware?

    I did custom firmware before but a friend of mine updated to OFW when playing on one of his games :(

    • Ted says:

      You can install the Rogero 3.55 over your 3.14, and then you can install higher custom firmwares (Rogero 4.30)

      ” I did custom firmware before but a friend of mine updated to OFW when playing on one of his games ”

      Make sure that there is no game inside the PS3 when updating your CFW.

  19. Jp says:

    hi sir i have is it safe to intall cfw 4.30 v2.05 in my ps3 because my current firmware is 4.25 and i dont see 4.25 on the list of you provide above PS3 requirement for intalling.

    • Tech84 says:

      Hi there,

      Unfortunately you will not be able to install rogero 4.30 on your ps3 because it is running official firmware 4.25

      • Jp says:

        i think my firmware is not official. its been jailbroken and i’ve already playing some iso games but there is a game i want to play (DMC) that need cfw 4.30 that is why i want to know if it is ok or safe to update my firmware 4.25 to 4.30?

    • Ted says:

      Maybe you are running Rogero 4.21 that has been spoofed to 4.25? Not sure though.

      • Jp says:

        when i turn on and start my ps3 rogero name appears and i dont think any custom firmware because i only knows one which is rogero.. when i check my system it shows 4.25 and im using also multiman

        • Ted says:

          Then it means you are already running Rogero, you can update to 4.30 if you want

          • Jp says:

            i’m confused with my firmware when i try to check my firmware trough XMB menu its says 4.25 version but when i try to check it inside multiman 4.18.0 it says my firmware is 3.55.

            Can i just downgrade my firmware to 3.55 (even though miltiman says i am already 3.55) and toggle QA then install 4.30? I tried to install 4.30 but it doesnt work on my current firmware

  20. my system information shows version 4.31. did my installation work?

  21. sahil says:

    sir. i UPDATED my PS3 fat to 4.31 Ps3 install package file is missing but i don’t know how i can downgrade to other cfw or ofw please help me to how find the software and get it free without E3 flasher

  22. Nino says:

    Hello i have a question. The Tutorial tells me to enable QA Flags.
    So my question is – can i enable them from a OFW 3.55 or do i actually need to install a lower version or Rogero, then install Multiman (lower version too), then make a backup of the PS3 and then enable QA Flags? Because that’s what it looks like.

    Or

    Can i simply install the latest Rogero vie Recovery console and then activate QA Flags once Rogero 4.30 is on?

    Another quick question – does the Multiman Backup help unbrick a system? How is it useful?

    Thanks a lot!

  23. Deep says:

    Sir, is it possible to go online?

  24. Momen says:

    hey, I hope this message finds you well,

    I have a small question, it’s about QA toggle, what it’s used for? I’m asking that question because after flashing Rogero 4.30 it’s stopped working every time I try to run it, My PS gives me an error message?

  25. Nino says:

    Well since we cleared that i should first install a lower version of rogero (CFW 3.55) and then update it to the latest afterwards i would like to know if there is a complete tutorial on what to do from 4.55 OFW to the last Multiman and Rogero. With Links would be best. Because this one here tells me to directly go for the last version, which apparently is not the right way if you start from a clean 3.55

    Thanks a lot!

    • Tech84 says:

      Hi Nino,

      (4.55 OFW? I’m assuming this is a typo for 3.55 OFW?).When the first Rogero 4.21 came out it was prone to bricking and the safest way to upgrade to that was to install 3.55 CFW first if you were on 3.55 OFW and then install the higher firmware, so I got stuck with that notion.

  26. Rebs says:

    I have read that the ‘Install package file’ option in the Game section in XMB was removed. How can we install the latest Multiman? Thanks.

    • Tech84 says:

      Where did you read it? I am unable to replicate that when I installed mine.

      One possible way is that on the XMB there was a “Tools” folder added on the XMB? You can revert that back by pressing square to change the view.

      • Rebs says:

        Thank you. Can’t remember where I read that, though. But I’ll try to find it.

        Another thing:
        I have several games running on 3.55 fix, if I will upgrade to 4.30, do I have to collect the original eboots for those games? Or will they work on 4.30?

        I have searched this over the web, and some people say the original eboots are needed while others say otherwise. I don’t want to upgrade till I have those eboots if ever they are really needed.

        Thank you guys. I’ll share this site to my friends.

        • Tech84 says:

          As for the 3.55 fix, yes it’s true that 4.30 would need the untouched eboots because, these eboots were modified to run on 3.55.

          About looking for the original eboots, I would suggest you try out which games run with the updated firmware before completely looking for the original eboots for all your games.

          (There were some eboot re-signers released but I have yet to test them before I advise others about using them)

          • Rebs says:

            Thanks sir. You’re a great help. I’ll go and update my PS3 in a little while. I’ll be back on this site whenever I’m not holding the controller. ;)

  27. Jp says:

    hi i tried playing DMC and KOA but both did not load and an error occur did my installation of rogero 4.31 fails?

    • Tech84 says:

      do your other games play?

      • Jp says:

        yep my other previous working games still works. DMC says it works well with cfw4.30 but error occur always show when i try to load it also with KOA. I fear that i have failed installing the new firmware and im stuck in 3.55 though it shows 4.31

        • Tech84 says:

          You can try changing the game settings in multiman, toggle bd mirror and external. This has worked for me on some games like Dead Island

    my Question is if now i only install mM last version this problem will be solution ?

    • Tech84 says:

      If you downloaded the update from the Playstation site, it means you have downloaded an official firmware, which will not allow you to play your backed-up games using multiman. Where you running CFW and then installed the update?

        • Tech84 says:

          Unfortunately if you have a PS3 with a firmware higher than 3.55, you would need a hardware flasher in order to install CFW. Multiman only works for CFW

          But if you look on the bright side, you can now buy and play new PS3 games that require higher firmwares.

      you should update to the latest multiman in order for it to compliment your new updates CFW

      Yes you can access and play online with PSN but I read sony is more strict at catching online players running CFW

    • Ted says:

      You need to use a hardware flasher in order to install CFW on your PS3

        So how should I do it just by removing dongle and booting it up in 3.55 then after the qa thing update it to rogero or should I first install 3.55 ofw via recovery mode.

      No need, you can directly install this over your 3.55 cfw. Also there a newer cfw which is rogero 4.40 cfw

    hi there, I forgot to remove the disk when updating, and although the multiman and rogero are still there, after I choose my game in multiman, the disk is still the original game from the disk, not the game I chose. how to fix that?

  52. Someone says:

    I know I’ll probably sound like an idiot but I don’t know if my ps3 was downgraded before since when I bought it it was already one 3.55 cfw…I don’t have any way to contact the guy I bought it from to ask him.Is it ok if I dehash it?
