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


Sponsored Links
112w 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.

How should my metldrpwn dump look?

I got the "metldr" file from my nor dump with norunpack. I got a dump of 256,0Kb, during the dump (when the script type "cat /proc/metldrpwn/debug") it says "Problem status (0x0000089)", it's that normal? Thanks.

I flashed my dex dump with JaiCraB Preloader 3.1 (Delete and restore all sectors method). It takes very long to write (about 1 hour), but result is perfect. I dumped it again after writing to compare - 100% match.
