38w ago - Following up on the PS3 DEX Firmware 4.20 updates, I've now gotten all the Sony PS3 Debug / Test Firmware versions not currently in the Downloads section and will upload them as time permits beginning with versions 1.01 and 1.02 below for collectors.
As always, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.
We have 100% confirmed that 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)
I will be adding more as I have time to upload them.
Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene updates and homebrew releases!
Nice that its working on 4.21REX, BAD that it doesn't read USB drives. It only sees the games on the internal HDD.
Is there a way to change to USB drive that I'm missing? I can only see games in my internal drive but the USB drive is blinking and doesn't stop. So far is a LOT faster than MultiMan which I like. Just wish there was a way to put more games on the screen at the same time. 4x3 is ok, but 8x4 is better.
To quote, roughly translated: For the uninitiated manager Iris is the only backup manager tool developed with legal (see PSL1GHT). unlike Multiman does not care much for frills, simply does its job well, it starts back up.
Has minimal graphics but its has the speed (do not get lost among a thousand options). It occupies very little space hd (1MB), so you can save valuable space (a popular backup manager uses space as a cache delll'hd and more space to store the cover, but do not believe it makes you burn more than 1GB ..
Another point in favor of this manager is that it is completely open source (Multiman NO!), Anyone can update with new features and adapt to a given cfw. Before today the manager only supported the CFW CEX 3.55, 4.21 and 4.30, but no CFW DEX..
So we decided to make it compatible with our CFW PS3ITA 4.21 DEX. In the future we will to the Italian translation of the manager and who knows maybe even adding some nice feature exclusive..
Ah, the manager is also compatible with CFW 4.21 Rebug mode and CEX and DEX.
Support for PS3ITA CFW 4.21 DEX
Support for Rebug CFW in CEX & DEX mode
v1.45 Changelog (Roughly translated via ps3ita.it/homebrew/iris-manager-v1-40-supporta-anche-il-cfw-ps3ita-4-21-dex/): The previous version of Iris Manager (1.40) and the recently released (1.45) have a bug that makes the most of the games hang Loading on cfw 4.21 dex. All this because of our small mistake in bringing the payload to cfw 4.21 dex. (Sorry for that)
Now, thanks to a starboard Estwald (do saint) we were able to fix everything. You can download the new version from the usual link or at the following address: http://www.ps3ita.it/download/ homebrew / irismanager-4-x-(4.21dex_support)-fixed_dex_payload.pkg

Finally, in related news from KDSBest on PS3 Debug Games: Hi, the following is possible on a REX 4.21.
You first has to swap your kernel to dex, which may get you the error on trophy register error on some games. (REX has to fix this).
1. Decrypt the EBOOT.BIN
2. Use make_fself to create an SELF file
3. Replace your EBOOT.BIN with your EBOOT.SELF (It has to be renamed to EBOOT.BIN).
4. Boot up the game with multiman
5. Use the TM/Debugger of your choice.
Simple as that.
PS: If ps3usercheat in db just changes eboot stuff you can decrypt eboot. apply patch. reencrypt done!
You should be able to apply the ps3usercheat stuff in there on your own now.
Following up on their previous PS3 DEX update, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid (o) of PS3ITA has made available Install Fake BDEmu PKG alongside a usage guide below on how to create and emulate Dummy BDEmu for those using a PS3 DEX CFW console with a broken BD player.
The Dummy BDEmu occupies only 2MB on your USB device, then after you can partition the remaining space as you want.
To quote, roughly translated: How to Create and Emulate Dummy_BDEmu Your BD Player Broke on CFW DEX Tutorial
In this tutorial PS3ITA will guide you with all the necessary steps to achieve the "dummy_bdemu" directly from the console. This procedure is useful to all users who use a CFW DEX (debug / test) on a console that has the blu-ray disc broken or simply for those who do not want to wear the player's lens for intensive use.
In fact, the "dummy_bdemu" is to appear on the XMB icon BD player despite the absence of the disc, increasing, therefore, the compatibility of our backups are initiated by the backup manager multiMAN.
Below is a comprehensive guide designed, documented and tested in detail on CFW 4.21 PS3ITA DEX:
Disclaimer: Attention! PS3ITA assumes no liability arising from incorrect use of these procedures and for any damage that the console could suffer. Use the procedure at your own risk!
Disclaimer 2: Warning! PS3ITA not instigates and does not support piracy in any way, the procedure is posted only to illustrate the operation of the emulator of BD player in a console for DEX then start the games legally purchased!
Part 1:Guidance on the preparation.
Console (NOR \ NAND) with any CFW DEX (the entire tutorial was tested on CFW 4.21 PS3ITA DEX)
A usb stick formatted in FAT32 with at least 3mb available
(If you prefer you can do before a disk partition using a PC, consider that this key will be connected to the console every time you want to emulate the BD player)
Last backup manager multiMAN
PKG Install_Fake_BDEmu be installed on a console with DEX cfw:
Part 2:Creating the "dummy_bdemu."
Step 1. Download the PKG Install_Fake_BDEmu
Step 2. Enter PKG just downloaded into your USB stick formatted in FAT32:
Step 3. Enter the same usb stick formatted in FAT32 into the USB port of your console and install the PKG from (XMB) -> (Game) -> (Install Package Files):
NOTE: The following steps format your usb stick formatted in FAT32 in a format recognized only by your debug console and not a PC, this will take only 3mb of total capacity, if you want to go ahead and make the first partition a disc using a PC
IMPORTANT: After the first run of PKG you should not delete it. E 'can recover formatted data on your USB stick when started for the second time ... the choice is yours!
Step 4. Choose your USB stick formatted in FAT32 (this usb stick must always remain connected to your console every time you want to emulate the BD player), put it in the far right of the console port:
Step 5. Start now PKG "Install Fake BDEmu"
Step 6. After refreshing the console you will notice that your pen drive is no longer recognized as a removable disk (procedure performed correctly) and the application "Install Fake BDEmu" has turned into "Remove Fake BDEmu (second confirmation of procedure performed correctly):
NOTE: From now on your USB stick is formatted in a format recognized only by your debug console (with certain settings) and not from a PC.
IMPORTANT: You should not delete the application "Remove Fake BDEmu" if you want to recover formatted data on your USB pen ... the choice is yours!
Part 3:Debug settings and use the emulator.
Step 1. Go to (XMB) -> (Settings) -> (Debug Settings) -> (Blu-ray Disc Access) and set "BD Emulator (USB)":
Step 2. Then go to (XMB) -> (Settings) -> (Debug Settings) -> (Transfer Rate Pacing for BD Emulator) and set "HDD Native"
Step 3. Now for the changes to turn off the console and paying particular attention to leave the usb stick into the port on the right (the one previously formatted USB stick from the "Install Fake BDEmu", see Part 2 to Step 4).
Step 4. Check that your BD player is properly emulated (XMB) -> (Game):
Try to start well, as standard procedure, a backup of your game (also from external hdd) through multiMAN ... you will notice that the backup has been successfully emulated icon of your BD player in turn also emulated above (despite the absence of a disc inserted in the drive)!
Before you turn on the console, remember to always insert into the USB port further to the right the usb stick created to emulate the player (if inserted after power will not be recognized).
At a later time if you do not want to emulate your reader with this pen usb remember to reset it with the application "Remove Fake BDEmu" to restore any of the data originally present on the USB stick.
When you do not emulate your reader with this pen usb remember that you have altered settings 2 Debug (see Step 1 and Step 2 Part 3), check whether to restore or not.
