To quote from LizZo on with the release details, roughly translated: Custom Firmware FERROX 4.82 v1.00 COBRA 7.53

We promised you just last night, we bring you the new Custom Firmware FERROX 4.82 COBRA 7.53 !!

It is the most used CFW of all together with REBUG, so you will know it well for now. Always present to every new OFW, all of us members of the Cybermodding Staff along with our Homebrew Developer we are working from the very first day after the release of OFW 4.82.

This CFW is the perfect firmware for those who are not interested in the many / too many CFW REBUG options. It can be said that the CFW is the most up-to-date for users looking for a CFW Standard that has all the necessary functions, no more. In fact, we can ensure that FERROX is one of the cleanest to play online.

  • Download the CFW to the bottom of the page. Rename the .PUP file exactly in: PS3UPDAT.PUP and compare the MD5 with what you find at the top of the page! You can use the md5sums tool that you find online!
  • Take a USB formatted in FAT32, and create a new folder named PS3, inside this creature another called UPDATE, and then insert the PS3UPDAT.PUP File, which would be the Custom Firmware.
  • Insert the USB into the uppermost port on the PS3.
  • Make sure to: Remove any disk from the PS3 player, Remove any Games Loaded with Any Manager, Disable the Internet Connection.
  • Ok. You can choose to install CFW from XMB or Recovery.
  • On XMB just go to the 'Settings' column, then 'System Update' and choose 'Through Storage Media'. Select CFW and start the process.
  • To enter Recovery instead, turn off the Console. Press and hold the Power button until the console switches off again. Now turn on again by holding down the Power key until you hear 2 close beeps. Then release the Power button! From the Recovery menu now, select 'System Update' and follow the instructions.
  • For a clean installation, you can install CFW 2 times. You can also go back to Recovery and choose Options to Rebuild the Database and Restore the File System. So you will have a cleaner and more secure installation.

Ferrox PS3 Custom Firmware 4.82 v1.00 Cobra 7.53 by Alexander.jpg



@Alexanderss : I cant play Bluray 3D ISO anymore. I mount it by webman mod 1.47.05. And always got this error when try to play: 8002997B. Everything still fine when i play it on rebug 4.81.2

And 3 more thing:
  1. IRISMAN 4.81.1 not woking, it said unsupport fw or some sys.....
  2. When I go to recovery and choose rebuid database, I can't use webman mod anymore until reinstall it.
  3. I installed webman mod 1.47.05 and when I press SELECT+START, it said my fw is 4.75, cobra 7.53. Something wrong? But it appear 4.82 in setting.


you have to wait for the developers to update the payloads of their backup managers. The payloads of 4.82 are almost identical to 4.75, which is why everyone finds that. What I can advise you and wait for homebrew updates and use mmcm for now ... even if deank, it should update it to 4.82


this is one of the best CFW in the scene. and the ps3 scene owe you a lot for your hard work which is always remarcable, but i want to make a small request :

could you please make a clean version of it from any modification of the UI (XMB, Cold Boot, the sound....) a version with all the specifications, but no UI mod, like the HABIB version
thank you
