50w ago - Following up on their previous PS3 DEX update, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid (o) of PS3ITA has made available Install Fake BDEmu PKG alongside a usage guide below on how to create and emulate Dummy BDEmu for those using a PS3 DEX CFW console with a broken BD player.
The Dummy BDEmu occupies only 2MB on your USB device, then after you can partition the remaining space as you want.
To quote, roughly translated: How to Create and Emulate Dummy_BDEmu Your BD Player Broke on CFW DEX Tutorial
In this tutorial PS3ITA will guide you with all the necessary steps to achieve the "dummy_bdemu" directly from the console. This procedure is useful to all users who use a CFW DEX (debug / test) on a console that has the blu-ray disc broken or simply for those who do not want to wear the player's lens for intensive use.
In fact, the "dummy_bdemu" is to appear on the XMB icon BD player despite the absence of the disc, increasing, therefore, the compatibility of our backups are initiated by the backup manager multiMAN.
Below is a comprehensive guide designed, documented and tested in detail on CFW 4.21 PS3ITA DEX:
Disclaimer: Attention! PS3ITA assumes no liability arising from incorrect use of these procedures and for any damage that the console could suffer. Use the procedure at your own risk!
Disclaimer 2: Warning! PS3ITA not instigates and does not support piracy in any way, the procedure is posted only to illustrate the operation of the emulator of BD player in a console for DEX then start the games legally purchased!
Part 1:Guidance on the preparation.
Console (NOR \ NAND) with any CFW DEX (the entire tutorial was tested on CFW 4.21 PS3ITA DEX)
A usb stick formatted in FAT32 with at least 3mb available
(If you prefer you can do before a disk partition using a PC, consider that this key will be connected to the console every time you want to emulate the BD player)
PKG Install_Fake_BDEmu be installed on a console with DEX cfw:
Part 2:Creating the "dummy_bdemu."
Step 1. Download the PKG Install_Fake_BDEmu
Step 2. Enter PKG just downloaded into your USB stick formatted in FAT32:
Step 3. Enter the same usb stick formatted in FAT32 into the USB port of your console and install the PKG from (XMB) -> (Game) -> (Install Package Files):
NOTE: The following steps format your usb stick formatted in FAT32 in a format recognized only by your debug console and not a PC, this will take only 3mb of total capacity, if you want to go ahead and make the first partition a disc using a PC
IMPORTANT: After the first run of PKG you should not delete it. E 'can recover formatted data on your USB stick when started for the second time ... the choice is yours!
Step 4. Choose your USB stick formatted in FAT32 (this usb stick must always remain connected to your console every time you want to emulate the BD player), put it in the far right of the console port:
Step 5. Start now PKG "Install Fake BDEmu"
Step 6. After refreshing the console you will notice that your pen drive is no longer recognized as a removable disk (procedure performed correctly) and the application "Install Fake BDEmu" has turned into "Remove Fake BDEmu (second confirmation of procedure performed correctly):
NOTE: From now on your USB stick is formatted in a format recognized only by your debug console (with certain settings) and not from a PC.
IMPORTANT: You should not delete the application "Remove Fake BDEmu" if you want to recover formatted data on your USB pen ... the choice is yours!
Part 3:Debug settings and use the emulator.
Step 1. Go to (XMB) -> (Settings) -> (Debug Settings) -> (Blu-ray Disc Access) and set "BD Emulator (USB)":
Step 2. Then go to (XMB) -> (Settings) -> (Debug Settings) -> (Transfer Rate Pacing for BD Emulator) and set "HDD Native"
Step 3. Now for the changes to turn off the console and paying particular attention to leave the usb stick into the port on the right (the one previously formatted USB stick from the "Install Fake BDEmu", see Part 2 to Step 4).
Step 4. Check that your BD player is properly emulated (XMB) -> (Game):
Try to start well, as standard procedure, a backup of your game (also from external hdd) through multiMAN ... you will notice that the backup has been successfully emulated icon of your BD player in turn also emulated above (despite the absence of a disc inserted in the drive)!
Before you turn on the console, remember to always insert into the USB port further to the right the usb stick created to emulate the player (if inserted after power will not be recognized).
At a later time if you do not want to emulate your reader with this pen usb remember to reset it with the application "Remove Fake BDEmu" to restore any of the data originally present on the USB stick.
When you do not emulate your reader with this pen usb remember that you have altered settings 2 Debug (see Step 1 and Step 2 Part 3), check whether to restore or not.

From the included Readme_DECH-441_001_e.txt file:
Contents of This Package
Changes in Release 441.001
- The update data for debugging station has been updated at the same timing as the release of the system software 4.41.
This update does not affect titles. Also, there is no change in the system software GUI.
- Validation of a media or the file system itself cannot be performed from the Check menu in the Game column.
When submitting a master disc, make sure to verify the disc that no error is present using the Disc Image Generator for PlayStation 3 or the Disc Image Checker for PlayStation 3.
- When performing the check from the Check menu in the Game column, if the number of result files exceeds approximately 80 to 100 depending on each check item, the file entries of the root directory in the USB mass storage run out and the subsequent check result files may no longer be stored. In such case, move the check result files to another directory.
From haxxxen on how to manually add an RSOD bypass to any PS3 CFW:
If you decrypt the 4.x basic_plugins.sprx, just search for: 409E002048000010 and replace with: 4800002048000010
This is based on rogero's 4.x bypass patch and i have only searched for it to patch it myself to lower 4.x cfws. I dunno if it is related to rsod, but he also added some trophy patch. I am using both of them
To patch np_trophy_util.sprx based on rogero, just search for: 419E00887B5E0020 and replace with: 480000887B5E0020
Finally, from Sony PS3 hacker cyberskunk: It is legit.. MD5 matches the one we got about a month ago.. REX has been 'almost' ready for that long to but I have been very busy with other non-PS3 things. Wont be long though..
Spoofers/Update Packages for 421-441 CEX/DEX/REX were finished earlier today but have not had a chance to get around to releasing them yet
It's coming.. I have been really busy but as I type this the build that I hope to be the final for this release is installing now..
