PS3 CFW Habib CEX 4.50 V1.02 now available

Written by Tech84 on October 17, 2013

PS3 Official Firmware 4.50 has been out for some time now but we still have not heard about any updates from Rogero cfw. Thanks to Habib, which is also quite well known in the ps3 homebrew scene, he has released his own PS3 cfw with Habib CEX 4.50 V1.02 for those who always need to be updated with the latest cfw.


Here’s how to install Habib CEX 4.50 V1.02 on your PS3:

Installation Files:
Download Habib CEX 4.50 V1.02 here. (194.77 MB)

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 already running any CFW. (Rogero, Kmeaw, Habib etc)

Here are the steps:

1. Download the file “HABIB 4.50 V1.02.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!

  • Has ReActPSN compatibility
  • Patched all coreos ecdsa check

  • Removed remote play restriction

The 4.50 firmware update includes firmware auto update, so in order for your ps3 not to accidentally auto update to the latest Official Firmware and in turn removing your homebrew capabilities, you should disable the auto update.

Tested on various models, no problem encountered but as any cfw release do not blame me if something goes wrong. – Habib

    I just want to ask if this CFW by Habib also using multiMan? tnx!

    • Tech84 says:

      yes, but you need a newer version of multiman for this. Deank has released Multiman v4.50.0 for this.

      pardon because I am a little busy right now, i guess the article about multiman 4.50.00 will come a little later =D
