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.

Unkn0wn 4.41 DEX CFW

Thought this might be useful for some people. YES this can be installed on a CEX2DEX convert without a brick.

Install over any existing DEX CFW with isoldr and spu_pkg_rvk_verifier patched. Otherwise install the 3.55 DEX Downgrade PUP and install from there.

  • lv1ldr ecdsa patched
  • lv2ldr ecdsa patched
  • isoldr ecdsa patched
  • appldr ecdsa patched
  • lv1 coreos hash patched

Backup original nor_dump you do not lose it, if you want to make changes from CEX to DEX, as this was the name for dex_FLASH.EID0.NORBIN.

If you want to go back to the console original then you just repeat the name of your original nor_dump like this cex_FLASH.EID0.NORBIN and insert it into the root of your USB can do with rebug_tool_manager or OS on multiman.

I am sure you can do it...

Once you change it in Rebug Toolbox, its changed until you reset your ps3.

No is just the default option when you open Rebug Toolbox.
