104w ago - Following up on the PS3 Debug Firmware 4.20 and PS3 Test Firmware 1.01 & 1.02 updates, this weekend an anonymous user on the PlayStation 3 Developer Wiki has shared the Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 update 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)

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.

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.
