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 https://ps3.scedev.net/technotes/view/1074)

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)

There are KLicense tools which can calculate them or brute force them

For those curious the game is Bonk: Brink of Extinction and is complete (unreleased, but complete)

This is a VERY out of the box question. I have a game that never got released for PS3, I have a CFW PS3 (plus some dev units which can already play the game...but thats beyond the point). I need to sign the game + pkg it for installation. I have got the game running but it just bails with no error.

Second part of my question is: The game has apparently 3 pieces of DLC that were planned, the DLC files seem to be in place, just need to be activated. I don't know if the DLC is active or not until I get the game working, but lets say it's not... what would I need to unlock it.

Keep in mind, this game NEVER saw the light of day and I may be one of select who even have it... so PSN downloads are not possible.

If someone with real experience with doing this could help or knows someone who can help that'd be awesome.

NOTE: This is a NPDRM game, obviously. I have the EDAT files...but don't know the KLicense for it.
