This is a nice tut. But can be very confusing for some people. I give you props for writing this up..
Note: Guide is almost the same for Rebug 4.30 users, simply dump your NOR/NAND on 4.30 - though this should be obvious anyway :dumb: CEX2DEX using Rebug CFW 4.21
c2d + openSSL: http://www.mediafire.com/download/jw...2d_openssl.rar
Preparation: Dumping EID root key
First you need to dump your EID Root Key which must be done on 3.55 cfw (downgrade using the 999 pup if needed).
Install and run the eEID_RKDumper.pkg, the PS3 will just show a black screen and beep several times. You can now restart the PS3 and retrieve your eid_root_key from /dev_hdd0/tmp/.
That is all you need from 3.55, you can go back to rebug 4.21. Dumping NOR/NAND
You can do this on rebug 4.21 using the toolbox.
Find the option "Export Flash to File", this will dump it to USB001 (right slot). Converting your CEX dump to DEX
First download and extract the c2d_openssl.rar to C:/ and install openSSL, this is required for c2d to work properly. Make sure you rename the folder to "openssl".
Now take you eid_root_key and your NOR/NAND dump and place in the folder with c2d.
Rename your original CEX dump to flashCEX.bin
Add .bin extension to eid_root_key.
Should now have a folder like this:
Open a CMD window in the current directory (CTRL+SHIFT + right click > Open a command window here)
Your CMD will look something like this:
So type in the command like this:
c:\c2d> c2d.exe eid_root_key.bin flashCEX.bin flashDEX.bin [target id]
(Note: Do not put the brackets when typing in your target id.)
Here's an example:
Should give you an output like this:
If you are unsure you have done it correctly, you can convert back to your original target ID (mine is 87)
Then compare this one with your original and they should match. Switching to DEX using rebug 4.21
Take your two dumps (flashCEX.bin + flashDEX.bin) and rename as below:
Rename your original CEX dump to CEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or CEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Rename your converted DEX dump to DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Then place on USB001 (right slot)
Load up Rebug Toolbox and first click the option:
A couple of warning boxes pop up, click YES to both.
Now Swap LV2 kernal, reboot and you are in DEX Mode within 10 seconds Switching back to CEX
Very easy, simply rewrite target ID and it will auto swap lv2 kernal to CEX.
To access PSN in DEX mode, there is a feature in Rebug Toolbox to spoof IDPS. Choose EID5 and you will be able to sign in fine. Btw, if anything in this tut doesn't make sense - let me know so i can make it even more noob friendly.
