PS3: FERROX 4.78 CEX Standard & NOBD CFW released

Developer Alexander released a new update of his FERROX CFWs and updated them to FW 4.78. For those who don’t know what an NOBD CFW is: If you find yourself with a PS3 Console that will display the XMB but when you go to launch a Game or App but they won’t start, in many cases, this means your BD Drive and/or BD Logic Board is damaged. If these items are damaged you obviously will not be able to use the disc drive on your console, but thanks to the “fine” developers over at SONY this affects the launching of Applications and HDD based games also.

So if your were an Official Firmware (OFW) user you would have a sick paperweight with a cool digital wave (when connected to a TV). However if your a CFW user, that paperweight can rightfully be used once again as a Console for playing your favorite movies and games. With the use of an NOBD CFW (this CFW will not magically repair your BD Drive/Board) it will bypass it, and you can launch applications and HDD based games once again and thus do not need to rebuy a console but rather you can still use your working hardware that is essentially disabled for an OFW user. (Quote: STLcardsWS)

If your BD Drive isn’t broken then you can just use the normal FERROX CFW. If you need the NOBD CFW just scroll past this and go right to the NOBD CFW part 🙂
