4.30 DEX: Do *NOT* install this on a converted machine, it will result in a brick. There is a check on eid0(!) in lv1ldr, that will trigger a panic (fun fact: it's impossible to generate the checked data yourself, so no cex2dex without ugly patches anymore).
As always, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.
We have 100% confirmed that running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)
I tried to play Tomb Raider by using Multiman on my PS3 with 4.21 DEX, but when i try to start the game on XMB appears black screen and i have to restart the console. How can fix the game wich request the 4.31 OFW?
I was thinking about something for awhile. I'm getting the tiao nand reader in the mail to jailbreak my ps3, but, I don't know if this permanently installs A FW. It would be a easy task but, also a inconvenience to have the reader always in the usb slot to play backups.
But, then I heard about DEX's ability to directly downgrade, so If this jailbreak allows me to install pkg's then maybe I could convert to DEX to downgrade. I don't want to keep DEX because you can't play new games from the hdd, or at least its that way to my knowledge.
So if I had DEX maybe I could downgrade to 3.55 OFW then install 3.55 CFW then convert back to CEX.
Is this possible without bricking, I would have searched this if it was'nt so specific, thanks.
I have bee doing a bit of searching and could not find some good info on the differences between CEX and DEX CFW. Can anyone post a good link or explain the differences and any other recommendations regarding the two?
