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)

To quote: File changes compared to 4.20 - These files have changed since the previous version e.g. by new version string, bug/crash/exploit fixes, ...

Finally, in related news below is a PS3 Restore Utility Backup / Restore DEX Console Guide (via ps3ita.it/hack/ripristino-utilita-di-backuprestoresu-console-dex-by-ps3ita/):

After making the conversion of the PS3 console from retail (CEX) in debug (DEX), some may have noticed the lack of utility of backup / restore (accessible from Settings -> System Settings -> Backup Utility) that allowed you to save all content (accounts, photos, music, games, etc. with the exception of trophies) on external media to back recovery in case of failure / change of the internal hard disk.

Therefore PS3ITA, thanks to our mythical Rancid-o, provides a simple method to restore such function by means of easily installable file pkg.

We found a way to restore Backup Utility in DEX:

Just install and start this pkg: [Register or Login to view links]

There is also a pkg for uninstall: [Register or Login to view links]

This is because if the option backup utility does not uninstall many options are not displayed in "debug settings". Oh I forgot has only been tested on cfw 3.55 DEX.

As previously reported, those with converted PS3 consoles should hold off installing this update as it will brick your system.

From the included Readme_DECH-441_001_e.txt file:

From haxxxen on how to manually add an RSOD bypass to any PS3 CFW:

If you decrypt the 4.x basic_plugins.sprx, just search for: 409E002048000010 and replace with: 4800002048000010

This is based on rogero's 4.x bypass patch and i have only searched for it to patch it myself to lower 4.x cfws. I dunno if it is related to rsod, but he also added some trophy patch. I am using both of them

To patch np_trophy_util.sprx based on rogero, just search for: 419E00887B5E0020 and replace with: 480000887B5E0020

Finally, from Sony PS3 hacker cyberskunk: It is legit.. MD5 matches the one we got about a month ago.. REX has been 'almost' ready for that long to but I have been very busy with other non-PS3 things. Wont be long though..

Spoofers/Update Packages for 421-441 CEX/DEX/REX were finished earlier today but have not had a chance to get around to releasing them yet

It's coming.. I have been really busy but as I type this the build that I hope to be the final for this release is installing now..
