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've no idea why there is so much hatred towards dex users, they are same as all the other ps3 users just had the bravery and knowledge to risk going to dex. whether your on cex or dex don't really matter your a modified ps3 user and should be together like brothers.
i'm sooooo glad i sold my ps3s cos chances are i'd have bricked my dex playing with this firmware. yes it would have been my own fault.
same as all those who bricked on the 4.25cex cfw , its not rogeros fault. anything we do to our ps3s is our own responsibility. Aim your hatred towards Sony not each other.
I'm still proud that I never installed that piece of you know what. I'm safe and quiet playing Resident Evil 6 on my 3.55 Kmeaw, and soon I'll be playing Assassin's Creed III.
BTW I do not wish anything bad to DEX users.. It's just a shame for them for not making the right choice, Why would we want dex users to have a bad ending? I mean, it's excelent that with this news you can be warned and do not brick it, PS3 costs a lot, and even more if it is with a CFW.
I had a DEX console but it bricked when I installed the first DEX firmware (3.55 DEX) as I flashed it from XMB not recovery. Now for the worst of it, the installer who was installing the Progskeet killed the board.
I'm hoping he replaces the whole console or at least the motherboard as its a 60GB he killed. I have a NAND backup all ready to restore back to CEX but as the chip is now missing a few legs its dead.
Lets hope I can get another PS3 to test out all these new firmwares and hopefully the next one will be able to install the progskeet and live.
