Hey I know, it is a bit late, but I want to share this:
I switched alot between different DEX OFWs & MFWs... I can only tell you:
DO NOT USE itsKAMEL 3.55 DEX-MFW - Just use RogeroV2-DEX... (Exeedy's one is also ok i think)
I successfully converted my PHAT 256MB-NAND without a hardware flasher. I enjoyed a lot of games & dex-feautures.
But then (when playing Portal 2 SINGLE-PLAYER after completed the coop): PS3 shutted down itself oO I try to switch it on: 1 sec on green, 1 blink yellow, blinking red-light loop, YLOD!! WTF?
No possibility to go into Factory service mode (tried via at90usb162-old-teensy-dongle)
Then I "reflowed" my PS3 on my own without prior knowledge - SUCCESSFULLY
Rented a heat-gun from a friend, disassembled the PS3, clean off the chips (put all the "gel" away) heated the 4 areas of the mainboard with 350°C 15sec per area, 15min waiting, turn the mainboard around, then same.
procedure: 4 areas, 15sec per area, with 350°C, 15 minutes waiting. Then putting new "gel" (thermal heatsink paste) on the Chips for the Cooling-system. Reassemble the PS3 - profit.
Then after playing around for 10min it YLOD again.. OHH NOOO -.- After doing the whole reflowing procedure again -.- i switched to RogeroV2
Since that switch, no more YLOD & happily playing MW3 online
AT PS3NEWS: I can confirm that this method REALLY repaired my YLOD. (till today) Perhaps I should put the tutorial in another thread?
AT ALL: I'm sorry for my very bad english, but I hope you understand the mini-TUT. if not, PLZ ask me
that way of "fixing" the ps3 is only temporary. the only way to truly fix it is replace the solder with leaded solder.. or so the experts say. you may get ages out of it repaired your way anyways. and well done for doing it yourself blade!
I have no idea what you did even after reading your mini TuT but . I haven't converted to DEX yet but am looking to since there is a game I bought but can't play it on 3.55 CEX (Rocksmith 3.70). I'll be going with your Dex recommendation. Thanks again.
if you are on 3.55 and you try to load a 4.20 kernel with lv2_loader the console will just turn off because it is signed using the 4.20 key, i decrypted 3.60 lv2_kernel and signed it with 3.55 key then loaded it but it just caused problems, no homebrew would work. etc
hi is there anywhere i looked all over and i cant find a tutorial to convert from cfw kmeaw to dex 4.11 or higher, do i need to put it to ofw 4.11 first then the 4.11 dex if anyone can help with a tutorial i would be so grateful, i do not ask for to much, but having troubles huge ones with this folks thank you tony ps3news rocks
