PS3 CFW 4.82 FERROX questions

Postby kalashnikov47 » Mon Dec 18, 2017 4:10 am

25354115_1671133639592691_1274923717317322188_n.jpg
i recently modded a friends ps3 thinking about getting rid of my old one that was unable to be modded.

we installed this ferrox CFW everyone was talking about. so far all we have been able to get to work is emulators and i installed them from a package file. bummer. anyone get theres to work? i basically would like to get mine to be able to play ps3 games off the harddrive without need for the disk. i can already tell some of these games are getting rare and i would like to put them up and keep them nice. not have to worry about family tearing them up when they come over. if anyone knows of any good homebrew apps or games too let me know. kodi would be cool if they have it for ps3.


i attached a picture of the model information for my ps3.


any helpful advice or information would be beneficial if anyone has experience with these.


ive modded many a psp's and this is the first ps3 ive ever modded. its like some kind of stealth hack too from what i can see. because where it says the system firmware its still just plain old 4.82 instead of saying something strange like 4.82 FERROX CFW or something like they do on psps when you mod them to a CFW its pretty obvious on the system software page its modded.

this ps3 is definetly modded now though, despite it still showing OFW its got emulators on it now so thats good,. this is a start.


so really like i guess from what i have read it seems like alot of people are talking about some kind of REBUG. or ferrox cobra ? i guess i still have to mod the firmware on this or something right? like im not sure what it is i have to do but. im willing to do whatever to mod this ps3.




anyways. incase the photo didnt work here it is again i hosted/posted somewhere else so that it should be viewable here for reference. i did the whole red the trainer 4.82 ferrox install like i said. Image

Truth be told your just missing some applications, you need to download a backup manager to play backup games, multiman is the main one, honestly if its modded you just need to learn how to use it, the mod is by far less developed than others like Xbox rgh or original Xbox modding, I would recommend going to the website that is devoted to PlayStation that has both scene and psx in the name, they have all the downloads and such

As far as what I've gathered from videos (I haven't done this yet myself) you have to use WebMan to play PS3 backups.

Take a look at this, I hope it answers some questions. They also have a bunch of other tools and stuff: http://www.psx-place.com/threads/webman ... cex.15568/

It's a little complicated, but not nearly if you had to take the console apart and modchip it. I'm planning to do mine over Christmas because I'll have the time with everything closed and such. Good luck.

First off i suggest switching to Rebug 4.81.2 firmware if your into ps2 backups. First off search google for ps3 habib QA toggler download it, and stick it on the root of your USB flash drive, and go to the package manager, and with your usb inserted,select the install package files, and select the last option From root of USB flash drive the Habib QA toggler, and press x, that will then download, and once downloaded will show pslight as an icon. Run the habib QA toggler, and the ps3 will go to a black screen, and then come back to the main screen. After that we need to get the rebug firmware, so to do that go to google, and search rebug 4.81.2 and click on the first search result. You may go ahead, and see all that it has to offer, or skip down to the very bottom, now what you want to click on is the Rebug Rex edition firmware, and a folder will download, inside that folder will be a readme, and you'll need to click on that readme. Then once notpad opens up or similar, you will see a web address, simply copy that into the google chrome address bar, and the download of the PUP begins Once downloaded, simply stick the PUP in place of the one you used in first softmodding the ps3 so go into PS3 then UPDATE, and replace the Ferrox pup with the one you just downloaded. Stick the USB flash drive in your ps3, and either boot into recovery, or choose the system update icon in the settings tab, and click the USB update option. Now wait for it to download, and once downloaded, the ps3 will restart, and instead of saying Ferrox, it will say Rebug. Go into your account, and go to the games tab, and go to package manager, and click install package files, and select the option to install package files from ps3 system storage, and upon doing so you will see Rebug toolbox, press x on that, and once that is downloaded back out to the games section, and start Rebug toolbox, now you want to look through the settings until you come upon one that says COBRA mode, and you want to enable that, and once you do, you will be able to play ps2 ISO'S without converting them to ps2 classics, and you will no longer have to boot into the ps2 Classics Placeholder, the XMB will display a ps2 format dics, and you will launch just like a ps1 or ps3 game. Also make sure that while in the rebug toolbox, that you look for QA Toggler, and make sure it is set to on, This makes it easier to transition between CFW'S after that restart your ps3, and go online and search multiman 4.81, and click on the brewology link, and there will be a list of downloads, and you want to click on the 4.81. Download the package file, save it to the root of your USB flash drive, and insert it into your ps3. Go into Package manager, click install files, and click install files from Root of USB the last option, select mulitman 4.81, and press X After Multiman is downloaded, back out to the Game section of the XMB. Note the icon should say mmcm that is multiman cobra mode, and this mode must be active to boot just the ps2 iso's, if it says multiman, start up multiman go to multiman settings, and switch from multiman to cobra mode. Pop a ps3 disc in, and once it sees it hit circle, and hit the copy option, once started, a progress bar will come up, and tell you the remaining time left, once it is done, load the game you want, and it will kick you back to the XMB, then just go upwards on the Game XMB section till you see the game you selected, select X and it will start. Note that for both ps1, and ps2 games insert the game, and once it sees it hit circle, and hit the make iso button, after it makes the iso, load the game, and it will kick you back to the XMB, and then start the game just like you did for the ps3 game. you'll also want to look for this also MultiMAN.FULL.12.790.PS3.PSN.PS2.PSX.Cover.Pack.v7.3.(10.02.2015)-ZMK as it provides covers for PSX ,and PS2 games. Thanks and Happy Modding

You need multiman for playing games & irisman to read NTFS drives & copy the stuff from it.
I was quite hyped after modding my PS3. But there isn't anything much other than playing PS3 backups. PS2 emulation is not satisfying as Nintendont & popstation.

I have a question also I am using that Rebug but I for the life of me cannot get any PSP games to play I am able to do PS1 PS2 and PS3 but I have tried every PSP Launcher even the remastered launchers the only thing I get after I mount it with Multiman is a black screen or you have to go to PSN store to obtain license again. I have the games in ISO format been trying to figure this out all day.
