97w ago - Following up on the previous update, this weekend PlayStation 3 homebrew development group DexL0ve have made available a PS3 patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX consoles followed by a revision below that fixes PS3 crashing issues.
Essentially this PKG release is a patched LV2 DEX (Debug / Test) kernel for CEX (Retail) PS3 consoles based on the recent LV2 Loader release.
To quote: From my limited understanding of PS3 coding and reading the NFO file, that by using the LV2_Loader released by Team Rebug earlier, and by QA flag'ing your CEX machine, this file is basically a patched LV2 DEX kernel that will load fully on your CEX machine and thereby give you some DEX (aka) TEST machine L0VE on your Jailbroken PS3 Console.
From Cyberskunk: Syscall 8, 9, 10 are broken in this lv2_kernel.self. The patch for 3.55 CEX lv2 has been used which ends up point to the wrong offset. The kernel will still work but if an app calls those syscalls the PS3 will crash. Hopefully it was just a mistake and they will fix it..
Finally, from the included PS3 NFO File:
____ U _____ u __ __ _ ___ __ __ U _____ u
| _"\ \| ___"|/ \ \/"/ |"| / _"\ u\ \ /"/u\| ___"|/
/| | | | | _|" /\ /\U | | u | / U |/ \ \ / // | _|"
U| |_| |\| |___ U / \ u\| |/__| \// |,-./\ V /_,-.| |___

|||_ << >>,-,>> \\_ // \\ // // << >>
(__)_) (__) (__)\_) (__)_")("_)(__) (__) (__) (__)
`!` So you have a CEX, and wanted some c0ding l0ve .!.

I was wondering if it's revesible. I mean, when CEX turn to be a DEX, is it possible to go back using a CEX FW and any other CFW? Does it work the 4.11 > 3.55 >4.11 trick without a downgrade like progskeet?
Well slow progress to time. I used the last weeks to get some dev's of the scene involved into it and it isn't not easy to find one this days. But finally we found a few sharing some infos with us and get some one involved into it. As every time i won't give some name's.
To time we concentrate on the games. After that is done and we can release something to turn the scene into a living and free one back we will finish the cex2dex project.
