if only deank could figure out ps3usercheat so he can use it in his homebrew. i'm certain more players will start it. as long as they don't attempt to use it on psn.

Don't forget to dehash, better yet, install QA and you won't need to use firmware that needs it.

You're forgetting to dehash then. The easy way to do the downgrade + upgrade process the right way is with Rebug's 999 downgrader. It installs Rebug 3.55 REX so, you've got the option of installing the QA flag built-in. All you have to do is install the Rebug Toolbox (included, internal option on the package installer) open it, and set the QA flag to enabled. Since the version's forced to 9.99, it actually won't let you install another firmware until you enable QA (it's for your own safety). Now upgrade to a normal 3.55 firmware like Rebug 3.55 REX to dehash (you could use Kmeaw or a Rogero 3.55, but, since the 999 IS 3.55 REX, you get your dehash without making any other changes to the firmware, which seems like the safest approach to me). Then upgrade to your new 4.xx and you won't brick it. And now that QA is enabled, you can go straight back to 3.55 REX (and presumably other normal 3.55 firmwares) without having to use the 999 Downgrader or other downgrade firmwares again. No more dehashing as a separate step, and no more bricking because you forgot to dehash.

Either via the package or Rebug 3.55 REX and the Rebug Toolbox (if you can't tell, I prefer the Rebug Toolbox -- no crazy button combos needed to see that it worked, it just tells you in plain English that it's enabled). QA allows you to downgrade safely without the need of special downgrade firmware, and makes it far more difficult to brick your console. Since you can't go straight from one 4.xx to another 4.xx, you'll need to downgrade when a new version comes out. When that need arises, it's better and far less confusing just having to install one 3.55 firmware instead of two.
If I were to hazard a guess as to why the Installer was removed from the CFW, well, you'll notice he left the installer in on his new 4.21, and disabled Cinavia as well. So, I'm thinking the reason for this is probably because Sony implemented some new anti-tampering countermeasures in 4.30 that Rogero has so far been unable to figure out how to bypass. This will change as the reverse engineering community slowly dissects 4.30 piece by piece. I cannot see installing game updates one-at-a-time though. Until they have batch package installing back at least (I mean, GT5 has 19 update packages, I'm not going to sit there and reinstall all of them manually if something ever happens to my game data and I have to delete it), I'll stick with Rebug (besides, until 4.30 does something 4.21 doesn't, there's no need for all this flashing back and forth). I'm sure the homebrew scene will come up with something good for package management eventually, though.
And for those who haven't googled it yet, Cinavia is a watermark in the audio of some movies. They claim you can't hear it, but since supposedly even a camcorder microphone can record it, well, if it's that loud, it's something I would find distracting, so, I'll certainly never buy a Blu-Ray with that little purple logo. This was initially only supposed to be used with theatrical releases to stop the circulation of cam jobs. Now they're apparently trying to expand it's functionality to protect movies in Blu-Ray format (basically, it tells your Blu-Ray player to check for AACS, and stop the playback if there isn't any, or mute the audio). Pointless either way. Most people own several steaming devices now -- Roku, WDTV, etc., which are not required to implement Cinavia. And for the kicker, you can get around it via an Xbox 360. It's not a Blu-Ray player, so it's not obligated to enforce Cinavia either (neither is the Wii for that matter). Considering many laptops now come with HDMI ports, Cinavia is arguably a bigger joke than Macrovision. Maybe it would have worked in the late 90s when people were watching VCDs on their DVD players, but it's about a decade too late to even be relevant ("it's complete, but obsolete, for tomorrow's become yesterday... up to date, but came too late... cause you're only looking for today" LOL, hey, if the Black Sabbath fits). All it's doing at this point is giving Sony yet another black eye as more people become aware of it.
I had that happen to me. It's supposed to Reboot your PS3, and show a Bubble to install multiMAN in XMB after it reboots.

In my case, multiMAN was corrupted, and I had to uninstall multiMAN, and reinstall. Here's how i accomplished it on Rogero 4.30 v2
I grabbed the ZIP'd multiMAN from tortuga-cove's Rogero 4.30 v2 tutorial. (I can't post links yet, but you can find it)
"Use any FTP program and transfer the unzipped files to [/dev_hdd0/vsh/task/00000002 folder] then REBOOT your PS3 and install latest mM from the bubble/PSN icon."
Basically, Copy the 00000002 folder and contents to /dev_hdd0/vsh/task, Reboot PS3, and you'll see the install Bubble in XMB.
Uninstall multiMAN (**WHILE THE INSTALL BUBBLE IS THERE**), and reinstall multiMAN from the bubble immediately after.
PKG install working again in multiMAN after the clean install
Rogero is preparing a firmware version which will have it 'build-in' in /dev_flash so you won't need multiMAN and you can't break/delete it, since it will appear in [/app_home] when you boot the PS3 and will come preinstalled.
It comes with background running FTP server
and /dev_blind mounted (for write access to /dev_flash).
am i reading or understanding this wrong?
does it say that rogero is working on a firmware that will have background running FTP server ?
what does this mean? to me.. sounds like background running FTP server , while playing games? or while just normal using XMB menu? that would be neat...
i dont know how to install any pkg i am on rogero 4.30 & the install pkg menu on multiman say : do u want to quit multiman and install and i click yes then it quit multiman and nothing happend can some 1 help me plzzzzz
When loading a pkg through multiMAN it redirects/fools your ps3 into thinking the pkg files are at the root of your USB drive where pkg files are normally installed from. There's a pkg installer in your game category in the xmb. Look in there
A bit lost here.. so if I install the below pkg, I can select pkg files from the root of the USB media from xmb without going thru MM?
About Install Package Files.pkg:
This is a small handy tool for installing PKG files via the "bubble"/PSN method. It may be handy for Rogero 4.30CFW ver. 2.00 users. Rogero is preparing a firmware version which will have it 'build-in' in /dev_flash so you won't need multiMAN and you can't break/delete it, since it will appear in [/app_home] when you boot the PS3 and will come preinstalled.
It comes with background running FTP server and /dev_blind mounted (for write access to /dev_flash).
is there not a full version ?
can i ftp large pkg files to a folder on the ps3 hd and install through the pkg install? if so, where do i put them? i know i can install them through MM but i figured thats what this installer was for...
