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)

Two fold - for this to run, there are certain flags inside the system that can't be changed without Sony's keys. Furthermore, any JB'd system now can access more things than on a debug box.

i am by no means a programmer or developer of any kind, but would someone be kind enough to try to explain why this wouldn't lead to CFW for retail consoles?

many thanks

Usually from people on the inside at Sony or from their Press FTP servers, but nah this won't lead to a new PS3 CFW for Retail consoles.
