CFW

STANDARD

Simple with low risk of ban is the CFW 4.85 of Alexander, for users who are looking for the indispensable for the jailbreak

Download

Not available 

Great CFW 4.85 for those who want the bare minimum (without Cobra patches etc.)

Download

 

 

COBRA


One of the best CFW along with that of Rebug developed by developer Habib

 


Another CFW of excellence together with that of Habib but developed by Joonie with more functions and long awaited the Cfw Rebug 4.85.1 (the D-REX version is not available)

Download

 


One of the first CFWs after the release of firmware 4.85 developed by Alexander with Cobra patches

Download

Additional CFW with Patch Cobra 7.55 (different from that of alexander)

Download

 

CFW NO-BD

For those who have the BD logic / reader card not working this CFW can help. It has all the features of the CFW Rebug 4.84.1 COBRA but with the NO-BD patch inserted. Please do not use this cfw with logic reader / card working

Download

Not available 

 

Additional CFW useful for consoles with the BD logic board / reader not working. This CFW has all the features of the CFW 4.85 COBRA but with the NO-BD patch inserted. Warning: do not use this cfw with a working reader / logic board

Download

TOOL

The tool that completes the CFW Rebug, with many functions. It cannot be missing on your PS3 if you have a CFW REBUG (a guide to the various functions is available at this address )

Download

 

CCAPI (Control Console API) developed by Enstone which allows to set the console ID, turn off the console, change LEDs, insert a process in memory, etc.

Download:

Initially developed by the developer NzV, Rancid-o continued the various updates of Mamba PRX / Loader. This application is very useful for CFW NO-COBRA because it adds support for ISO PSP, implements the Mamba / PS2_EMU etc.

Download

Not available

SPOOF

One of the historical tools of the PS3 scene able to get online access or to spoof a superior firmware. Developed by the Evilnat Developer and the most used tool to access online and is compatible with all CFW including 4.84 CEX and DEX

Download

Sen Enabler 6.2.3

BACKUP MANAGER

multiMAN_4

The backup manager of excellence on PS3 developed by Deank, compatible with CFW 4.85 CEX and CEX Cobra

Download

Not available 


The Iris Manager fork and open source backup manager initially developed by Estwald, always updated by the developer Aldo Vargas compatible with CFW 4.85 CEX

Download

 

Another fork of Iris Manager developed by Orion and taken up by theheroGAC, but updated to the last payload CEX 4.845 which has almost the same features as irisMAN

Download

 

More than backup Manager I would say a complete plugin with many functions initially developed by Deank and updated by Aldo Vargas. The use is much faster than a backup manager and does not consume so many resources. I would say DEANK’s alternative to multiMAN

Download

 

Another fork of Iris Manager developed by Zar quite complete and fast. Compared to irisMAN and Gamesonic Manager it contains several payloads and options (highly recommended on CFW 4.85)

Download

TOOL / HOMEBREW

Control Fan Utility, a great homebrew initially created by Estwald, to avoid overheating of the PS3 console and always have a console with balanced temperature

Download
