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

Sponsored Links
105w 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.

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

Sorry for my english.

Here there are EID0 Section Key Seed and EID0 Key Seed converted with hexkey2bin if you need: [Register or Login to view links]

now the other part... any hints on this part guys... thx

is aespipe used for AES encrypt? the original guide is kinda alien like, i bet they do with a blink of an eye...., any help on the command to put in terminal like:

use AES Encrypt to Encrypt EID0 Key Seed as data with EID Root Key as Key and EID Root IV as IV

aespipe -e/ aes256 eid_section_key_seed as data? bin file? -? eid_root_key-o root_iv key
something like that right

Look here. [Register or Login to view links]

You need OpenSSL.

You must install Linux on your PS3 and use MetldrPWN exploit to dump your EID Root key then use this EID0 key seed and section key seed to generate a full EID key set for encryption/decryption process.
