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)

Very True - I am fortunate enough to have come across a CECH2501A (Base FW 3.50), sitting in the backroom of a Radio Shack in Sacramento.. Now workin with 2 CEX and 1 DEX... DEX is hard to get used to at first but its still fun to have one for bragging rights.
Now that the PS3 is blown wide open with the release of updated CFW, the DEX is gonna start to lag behind.. (B.T.W, as you guys first reported Sony 4.30 DEX OFW, WILL BRICK your system, apparently every time, we might be stuck on 4.25 DEX unless some of these A+ Dev's find a way around Sony, again ...)
its easy enough to convert a 3.55 ps3 to dex. but unless your actually gonna use the dex stuff, its a waste of a 3.55 ps3 (could be running 4.30cfw when its released) its a lot harder to go from dex to cex than it is to go other way round.
