UPDATE! Rogero has released an update with Rogero 4.50 v1.01 with Toolbox for StealthMan.

After a being silent from the homebrew scene these past few months, Rogero is back again with his popular PS3 CFW with Rogero 4.50 CFW. Rogero Fans have been waiting for his newest release for some time now, Habib has made a CFW for version 4.50 with Habib CEX 4.50 V1.02 ahead of Rogero.

How to install Rogero 4.30 cfw on your PS3

There isn’t really much new with Rogero 4.50 V1.00 since it’s just an update to include support for the recently released Official 4.50 firmware. Here’s what he had to say about the Rogero 4.50 V1.00 CFW:

The CFW is packed manually with minimal modifications of the OFW4.50 and only the needed PKGs were repacked with their matching headers, lv0 and the SPU loaders also properly packed with correct sections/compression.
It does have all the basic patches from CFW4.46, the ToolBox was not added.
I built this last night before I go to sleep and installed it and tested it for 5 minutes only on my PS3, all seems fine and stable, but as usual with any CFW : USe it at your own Risk.

Here are the steps on how to install Rogero 4.50 cfw on your PS3:

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 (and lower) or
A PS3 running any CFW

Installation Files:
Download Rogero 4.50 CFW here. (194.33MB) (Mirror 1)(Mirror 2)

Here are the steps:
Remove any discs inside your PS3 when performing the update.

1. Download the file “PS3UPDAT_Rogero_CEX_4.50_v1.00.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. Insert your USB or External HD into your PS3
6. Turn on your PS3, go to System update and select “Update via Storage Media”
7. Just follow any on screen instructions that would come up.
8. And you’re done!

And now that you have Rogero 4.50 CFW installed, you would also need to update your Multiman with the latest version to have 4.50 CFW support. Here’s the link for MultiMAN ver 04.50.02.

As always, credits to Rogero over at the Tortuga forums.

“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

      You wont be able to downgrade it, it would just stop at around 80-90%, freeze then you’d need to restart your unit.

      Because you cant directly install CFW on firmwares higher than 3.55, you would need to downgrade using a hardware flasher first down to 3.55 and then install the CFW from there.
