Rogero 4.55 v1.00 CFW now available

Written by Tech84 on February 16, 2014

PS3 CFW users have been waiting for this for some time now, and thanks to the beta testers along with fellow PS3 developer Habib, Rogero has finally released Rogero 4.55 CFW to the public.

Expect a Rogero 4.55 CFW anytime soon

Here’s whats included in the Rogero 4.55 v1.00 CFW:

ReactPSN patch.
Cinavia Disabled for HDD content playback only.
noBD/noBT patches to allow installation on consoles with broken BluRay Drive or Bluetooth board.
This CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over OFW3.55 or any CFW ver <= 4.55 HDD can be swapped/changed and the CFW will re-install without any problem. Patched LV1 to disable LV2 Protection. Patched LV1 to add peek/poke support. Patched LV1 Core OS Hash Check (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles) Patched LV2 to add peek/poke support. QA Flag enabled by default to allow for easier downgrading using Recovery Menu. RSOD screen bypass patch for RSOD machines (it won't fix the RSOD but allows the PS3 to boot fine into XMB) PSN/SEN access is available but it's not recommended. It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.55 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed. The CFW can be used for Downgrading with Hardware flashers with PS3 Flash Tool v4.55

Here’s how to install Rogero 4.55 CFW:

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 (will also work on Rogero 4.50 V1.00)

Installation File:
Download Rogero 4.55 v1.00 here. (194mb) (Mirror 1)(Mirror 2)

Remove any discs inside your PS3 when performing the update.

1. Download the file “PS3UPDAT_Rogero_CEX_4.55_v1.00b.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!

After updating to Rogero 4.55 CFW you might want to update your Multiman to MultiMAN 04.55.00 to have better compatibility with your new 4.55 CFW.

As always:

“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

    so please help me and i hope reply soon..
    thank you

    • Ted says:

      There will always be a risk of getting banned whenever you go online using any PS3 that has CFW.

      One thing you can try to do know is to find out if you have an account ban or a console ban. With an account ban you can just create a new account, but with a console ban it gets more difficult since you would need to find some working console ID and spoof it. OR use some homebrew to change it, but those homebrews only work for a limited time.

      Just hope tech4idiots will create a tutorial about those in the future.

      Try creating a new account and try going online, if you can, then good for you. But if its still banned then there’s not much we can do about it.

      I personally do not play online with my CFW PS3, I have a PS3 with OFW that i use whenever I feel like playing online.

  9. gs says:

    sir sen/psn enebler are working bann ps3 console????

  11. Beatdown says:

    Can you overlap Rogero 4.46 with this cfw?

  12. Akbem says:

  13. tarun sharma says:

    hello sir im in a big problem please help me i have seen many websites and have come up with no solution this site is my last hope i have a ps3 slim serial no. cech2508a on 4.55 ofw would i be able to jailbreak my ps3 or get it to 3.55 ofw please help me the ps3 has run me out of my money i dont have more money to buy original games please sir help me out it would be nice of you if you could help me out a little bit more while providing me out with links to download the software if there is any it would be very great of you

    • Ted says:

      You cant install CFW on PS3 that have OFW above 3.55. It would require a hardware flasher in order to downgrade it back to 3.55 and then install CFW from there.

      There’s no way to install CFW over any OFW above 3.55 via software only, if any website claims to do so, it’s more likely a scam.

      I think this site does not condone piracy, why dont you just borrow or rent the games? its much cheaper than buying them.

  14. Dandy says:


    I am having a PS3 with Kmeaw CFW 3.55 and Gia Manager. Till now its working perfectly fine for me for all the older games. Now to play the new games what should i need to do?

    1. Install Rogero 4.50/4.55 which one do you recommend?
    2. Do i need to delete Gia Manager?
    3. I currently don’t have multiman. So do i have to install multiman and delete Gia Manager.
    4. Will my older games still work with Rogero 4.50/4.55 ?
    5. I have few PSN games installed in my PS3, will they be deleted when i update my PS3 to Rogero?

    • Ted says:

      1. 4.55 would be best for playing the latest games
      2. no need, but most Rogero users prefer multiman
      3. I would suggest to install multiman, you can keep gaia if you want
      4. yes
      5. just test them first if they work, if not, just resign them again.

  15. airelle says:

    can i directly update from my rogero 4.50 v1.01 to 4.55 without downgrading to 3.55 ? inatructions seem simple enough if downgrading wouldn’t be needed.

  16. jardine says:

    My PS3 is CFW rogero 4.31, is it better to update to this CFW? can i play games without having the errow 8001003C? and do i also need to update my Multiman if i update it to this CFW? thanks!

  17. jardine says:

    Also, can i update directly to CFW 4.55 Rogero from 4.31 rogero? thanks

What is this spoofer or psn enabler. i have never gone online before even before i hacked my ps3. do i still need to sign up to psn or anything like that?

  21. Mr D says:

    Is this cfw safe? im just curious because of all the comment saying that the data is corrupted and I dont want to brick my ps3 when updating to 4.55.

    what is multiman stealth, do i need this as well to play online?

    I instal Rogero 4.55 v1.00 CFW, and can’t see reActPSN….?

    • Ted says:

      Try reinstalling then resigning your games, but usually after reinstalling theres no need to resign but just resign them just in case.

  28. syy says:

    • Ted says:

      What is your currents PS3’s firmware?

      • Drew says:

        Hey guys i have a 4.55 OFW PS3, is it possible to install this? or will i encounter an error and Brick my PS3? plz reply thanks!

        • Tech84 says:

          It wont brick your PS3 since you would not be able to install this on a PS3 with OFW in the first place.

          You would need a hardware flasher if you want to install CFW on any PS3 with OFW higher then version 3.55.

  38. Mirza says:

    lots of thanks for you….. i already test upgrade frome cwf 4.30 CEX its running smoot now

  39. denish pandit says:

  40. ashraf says:

    i am new to jb community i have ofw with 4.55 in my ps3 i want to jailbreak using rogero 4.55 cfw. but it showing corrupted at 70% while updating ..pls help me how to fix and how to jailbreak..

    • Ted says:

      Hi there, Welcome!

      Unfortunately, you cannot install CFW on any OFW higher than 3.55.

      The only way to do it when you have an OFW higher than 3.55 is to use a hardware flasher.

      Currently, there is no way to do it via software only.

  41. Cecil Adams says:

    Does updating to 4.55 or 4.50 need a format or do I get to keep my data?

  42. Cecil Adams says:

    I do have Multiman but i don’t know if i have a CFW and my system information in Multiman says 3.55 while the System Settings say 3.60.
    So can someone please tell me if I can install this update normally?

  43. Cecil Adams says:

    Is it possible to get cobra on this firmware? Please tell me how if it is possible.

  44. denish pandit says:

    there is no update in your usb. this message can be seen how can i update 4.55 rojero in my ps3 slim model.

    • Tech84 says:

      Hi there, sorry for the long reply. we hare have been pretty busy, and it seems some of the helpful commenters here like Ted are also not available. He seems pretty knowledgable with PS3 homebrew.

      But to answer your question, unfortunately, ps3 slim models cannot be modified to run CFW.

      There’s no way to do it currently, and if you encounter anyone claiming to do so, they would most likely to ask for some kind of payment and is most likely a scam.

  45. denish pandit says:

  52. Jensen says:

    hi we just recently updated our ps3 to rogero 4.55, we’ve tried to download the multiman 4.55 and installed it but we’re receiving an error upon installation. its says “an error occurred during installation -error 8001003a

    do we have a work around here thanks!

  53. Jensen says:

    thanks for the reply i think we’re using 4.46 version. if i try to delete multiman, will it affect my installed games? im planning to reinstall multiman. thanks!

  54. clarr says:

    Helo guys, just need some help, I just installed multiman and rogero 4.55 from rogero 4.45, before I installed the latest cfw the only trouble I’m having is with some games I’m black and white colors, however after I installed rogero 4.55, I’m having some trouble with black screen after loading games from xmb. I hope for a response! Thank you!

  55. Josh says:

    Hey there, I’m not sure if anyone is able to help me with this issue but I’ll try to explain. I’m on rogero 4.55 and basically I installed the latest zofmod spoofer 4.75 to gain access to psn to play my original games. The spoofer works, however I don’t find any option to disable it but I saw a “Install/delete” option and I pressed “delete” which wasn’t a good idea and didn’t delete the spoof at all. I tried to open back the spoofer pkg and said “firmware is not supported”. So I reinstalled the spoofer pkg and I was quite surprised to see the message “firmware is not supported” gone. But again, I’m not able to disable the spoof. From my research, I know many people mentioned about “reinstalling your cfw via recovery mode” which I’m definitely prepared to do. My question is what are the steps involved? So I’m on 4.55 rogero. Do I just download the 4.55 PUP file and place it on the usb, enter recovery mode and just install that 4.55 rogero cfw normally? Or will this brick the ps3 system. Any help is appreciated. 🙂

  56. Karan says:
