This version does NOT have the Mod Graphics you saw in FERROX 4.80. However it will be added later, releasing a separate version, or a simple package. Leave your vote in the Poll Top of the page!
- Download the CFW at the top. Rename the File .pup exactly: PS3UPDAT.PUP and confrontatene the 'MD5 with what you find at the bottom! You can use the Tool md5sums.
- Take a USB FAT32 formatted, and create a new folder called PS3, inside this create another 'other still called UPDATE, and inside latter' inseriteci the PS3UPDAT.PUP File, which would be the custom firmware.
- Insert the USB in the far right of the PS3 port.
- Be sure to: Remove any disc from the player Ps3, Remove any games loaded with any Manager, Disable Internet Connection.
- Ok. You can choose to install the CFW from the XMB or from Recovery.
- On the XMB will just go into 'Settings' column, then 'System Upgrade' and choose 'With storage media'. Select the CFW and will start the process.
- To enter Recovery Instead, turn off the console. Turn it back on by holding down the Power button until the console is turned off again. Now turn it back on by holding down the Power button until you hear two beeps very close. Then release the Power button! Recovery time from the menu, select 'System Update' and follow the instructions.
- For a clean installation, you can install 2 times the CFW. You can also go back into Recovery and click Options for Rebuilding the Database and Restore the System File. So you'll have a setup more than clean and safe.

Update: From LizZo comes the changes in CFW 4.81 FERROX CEX COBRA EDITION v1.01, roughly translated to quote:
CHANGELOG FERROX COBRA 1.01:
- Fix the PS2 Emu for Console CECH C / E (Joonie thanks for the feedback)
- Peek & Poke arranged to LV2, which may lead to Enable and Disable the COBRA functions at will. Once the COBRA features disabled, CFW will be a normal CFW Standard. (Joonie thanks for the feedback)
- Now the PSP Titles Compatible with PS3 work properly.
- Added Installer for Mod Graphics, the same views in FERROX 4.80. You will find the PKG in the Package Manager - Install Package Files - Internal Storage.
