370_001 DECH (Debugging Station) Update Data

When the system software is updated to the version 3.56 or later, downgrading cannot be
performed using update data that is older than 3.55. As for details, please refer to the following technical note.

  • Restrictions Regarding the Downgrading of the PlayStation 3 Reference Tool/PlayStation 3 Debugging Station (Technote ID:201101-05 [Register or Login to view links])

WARNING: Do *NOT* update from version below 0.96 directly to this flash. Instead, update from earlier versions to version 0.96, then update to this version. Failure to update to 0.96 prior to applying this flash may render your hardware inoperable. Such hardware must be returned to SCE for repair.

As always, it's important to note that these PS3 Debug / TEST updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so it is intended for examination and comparison purposes only unless you own a Dev unit.

For those curious, running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

As previously reported, those with converted PS3 consoles should hold off installing this update as it will brick your system.

From the included Readme_DECH-441_001_e.txt file:

From haxxxen on how to manually add an RSOD bypass to any PS3 CFW:

If you decrypt the 4.x basic_plugins.sprx, just search for: 409E002048000010 and replace with: 4800002048000010

This is based on rogero's 4.x bypass patch and i have only searched for it to patch it myself to lower 4.x cfws. I dunno if it is related to rsod, but he also added some trophy patch. I am using both of them

To patch np_trophy_util.sprx based on rogero, just search for: 419E00887B5E0020 and replace with: 480000887B5E0020

Finally, from Sony PS3 hacker cyberskunk: It is legit.. MD5 matches the one we got about a month ago.. REX has been 'almost' ready for that long to but I have been very busy with other non-PS3 things. Wont be long though..

Spoofers/Update Packages for 421-441 CEX/DEX/REX were finished earlier today but have not had a chance to get around to releasing them yet

It's coming.. I have been really busy but as I type this the build that I hope to be the final for this release is installing now..
