Sponsored Links
111w ago - Today the Italian PlayStation 3 developers at PS3ITA have released a PSoN DEX PKG allowing PS3 DEX (Debug) PSN access without the Software Pack nor FckPSN required for those who have converted their console from PS3 CEX to DEX.

From their blog, roughly translated: Fresh news.. now thanks to itskamel you can access the store without FckPSN with a PS3 CEX.

Thanks to his work (and that of the people who helped him) we were able to develop a version for PS3 DEX.

Requirements: PS3 Debug (DEX) upright any CFW 3.55

1) Install "PSoN_DEX" on your PS3 DEX (Update: use "PS3ITA_PSoN_DEX_V2.pkg" on PS3 instead)
2) Start "PSoN_DEX" and wait for the reboot of the console
3) Install "Change_IDPS" on PS3 (Update: use "Change_IDPS-All_Region" on PS3 instead)
4) Run "Change_IDPS"
5) Connect to PSN

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Change_IDPS must be started after every reboot of the console before groped access to the PSN (if you do not get an error: 8002A224)
  • Check in the debug menu settings (it's under Network Settings), the NP Environment setting is set as NP (not SP-INT)
  • L 'IDPS is set as European (0 x 85)

Thanks to all the people involved in the implementation of the version for PS3 CEX, without them this would never come out PSoN DEX: itskamel, anonymous person, BobbyBlunt, EUSS, Zecoxao, sandungas.

Note: The article has been updated with Change_IDPS-All_Region.pkg. This new PKG files allow you to set the IDPS according to your region (EU, USA, etc..) Through an automated recognition.

Update: Italian PS3 ccene developer Rancid has been hard at work the last few days, first releasing PSoN and Change_IDPS Applications which allow users on DEX 3.55 access online, and now he's updated both apps again to include automatically setting your region in change_IDPS application and updating PSoN to version 2 which includes access to the PS3 Store and access to the TV section of the XMB.

UK users have an added bonus by getting access to 4OD and ITV Player, (BBC Iplayer not working), all without losing your Debug menus, no messing around with dev_blind or replacing certificates.

This is a nice tut. But can be very confusing for some people. I give you props for writing this up..

Note: Guide is almost the same for Rebug 4.30 users, simply dump your NOR/NAND on 4.30 - though this should be obvious anyway :dumb:

CEX2DEX using Rebug CFW 4.21 by Derektrotter

Downloads:

c2d + openSSL: [Register or Login to view links]
eEID_RKDumper.pkg: [Register or Login to view links]

Preparation:

Dumping EID root key

First you need to dump your EID Root Key which must be done on 3.55 cfw (downgrade using the 999 pup if needed).
Install and run the eEID_RKDumper.pkg, the PS3 will just show a black screen and beep several times. You can now restart the PS3 and retrieve your eid_root_key from /dev_hdd0/tmp/.

That is all you need from 3.55, you can go back to rebug 4.21.

Dumping NOR/NAND

You can do this on rebug 4.21 using the toolbox.
Find the option "Export Flash to File", this will dump it to USB001 (right slot).

Converting your CEX dump to DEX

First download and extract the c2d_openssl.rar to C:/ and install openSSL, this is required for c2d to work properly. Make sure you rename the folder to "openssl".
Now take you eid_root_key and your NOR/NAND dump and place in the folder with c2d.
Rename your original CEX dump to flashCEX.bin
Add .bin extension to eid_root_key.

Should now have a folder like this:

s3nint3!
Open a CMD window in the current directory (CTRL+SHIFT + right click > Open a command window here)

Your CMD will look something like this:

c:\c2d>

So type in the command like this:

c:\c2d> c2d.exe eid_root_key.bin flashCEX.bin flashDEX.bin [target id]

(Note: Do not put the brackets when typing in your target id.)

Here's an example:

s3nint3!
Should give you an output like this:

s3nint3!
If you are unsure you have done it correctly, you can convert back to your original target ID (mine is 87)
Then compare this one with your original and they should match.

Switching to DEX using rebug 4.21

Take your two dumps (flashCEX.bin + flashDEX.bin) and rename as below:

Rename your original CEX dump to CEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or CEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Rename your converted DEX dump to DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Then place on USB001 (right slot)

Load up Rebug Toolbox and first click the option:

s3nint3!
A couple of warning boxes pop up, click YES to both.

Now Swap LV2 kernal, reboot and you are in DEX Mode within 10 seconds

s3nint3!
Switching back to CEX

Very easy, simply rewrite target ID and it will auto swap lv2 kernal to CEX.

To access PSN in DEX mode, there is a feature in Rebug Toolbox to spoof IDPS. Choose EID5 and you will be able to sign in fine. Btw, if anything in this tut doesn't make sense - let me know so i can make it even more noob friendly.

dump the NAND/NOR backup using hardware flashser and then restore the targetid back to retail one and use rogero flash downgrade app in PC and use your NAND/NOR backup to patch it and then flash it back to your PS3. Then it will remind you to reinstall a firmware after you turn it on, install a CFW that you want to use and youre done.
