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.

dump the NAND/NOR backup using hardware flashser and then restore the targetid back to retail one and use rogero flash downgrade app in PC and use your NAND/NOR backup to patch it and then flash it back to your PS3. Then it will remind you to reinstall a firmware after you turn it on, install a CFW that you want to use and youre done.

Hi all..

Bit of a dilemma, I semi bricked by converting DEX to CEX through multiman which I don't normally do, I'd normally run it through rebug toolbox and be sweet, anyway its semi bricked "5 beep thingo" and turns off.

Now I have a minimus dongle and just wondering if anyone has used this device to fix their own semi brick, I'm just a bit lost as to what hex file I should use, loading it etc I have read up on and it looks pretty straight forward, another issue im having is that everyone, well most people are stating that in order to use these dongles I must be on 3.55?

At the time of converting from DEX to CEX on was on 4.x REBUG, once I find correct hex, all I'll need to do is load lv2diag.self and rebugs 999 3.55.4 downgrader right? Anyone information would be appreciated!

Thanks!
