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.

Hey guys hoping someone can point me in the right direction on this. So in a moment of stupidity when I flashed my CEX over my DEX I turned off the system without installing a CEX firmware so now when my PS3 boots up it beeps about 10 times and turns off.
I've read a few posts on this brick and there seems to be a few ways to go about fixing it but most of the posts are old. I've read about using the e3, a SD card reader and the old ti84 calculator method.
Just wanting to get everyone's input on this. Appreciate it guys
Ya, it's normal that you don't hear to much about DEX right now. I'm staying on DEX with one of my consoles. Don't see no need to convert. I can play everything I want at the moment. not to worried about 4.30 DEX right now. still nice to see the 4.25 DEX FW leaked.
all in all I'm still quite satisfied with my DEX convert. I'm pretty sure we'll see 4.21 CFW eventually.
