PS3 CEX to DEX Converted Units Bricking on OFW 4.30 DEX Update


Sponsored Links
104w ago - It's been a few months since the last PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 leak, however, we are now hearing reports that PS3 CEX to DEX Converted units are bricking when PlayStation 3 scene developers attempt to upgrade to Sony's OFW 4.30 DEX update.

This means if you have a converted unit and currently try to use the (not yet public / leaked) 4.30 DECH update you will get a brick... so consider yourself warned in advance!

What happens is when the bricked unit is powered on the light turns green for a few seconds, then you hear 3 beeps and its goes off.

It is suspected (unconfirmed) the reason why this bricking occurs in CEX to DEX converts on OFW 4.30 DEX is because the EID5 isn't changed, which is one factor separating the converted Retail to Debug / Test consoles from genuine and righteous DECH (DEX) consoles.

Finally, for those curious, the PS3 4.25 DEX update (also not publicly leaked yet) is not patched by Sony to brick converted consoles, so this would be the last PS3 Debug / Test Firmware you could update your converted console to (and go online with PSoN DEX) unless a work-around patch fix is discovered.

need to let the info sink a little, thx both of you for the help, i'm seeing all files are in my dexmod thx again bro! ...using these as an example to fully understand the process, and yes it's the way the keys are used in openssl to work correct, i'm doing it wrong

the hex2key2bin converted eid_key_seed/eid_section_key_seed ..those files are identical tho if you c/p those from mainpost into HxD-new file and save as bin, it's the same, i'm guessing if one do this all PS3-linux then this hex2key2bin is used?!

I will try with hexkey2bin soon, you can try to remove "space" and put the entire HEX code on one line, like this:

EID0 Key Seed
