29w ago - Following the recent 4.30 DEX Warning, this weekend DemonHades reports that Team Mate (via Checko) have now leaked the Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.25 update which has been confirmed working by several Spanish PlayStation 3 developers.
From MARA87: Just checked the appldr.. version is 4.25. seems legit to me.. otherwise i would not posted it
Changelog for the DEX FW:
The following bug has been fixed.
When 24 hours have elapsed in a signed-in state after the last sign-in to the PlayStation Network, there is a problem where almost all of the NP Library APIs will return errors. (TechnoteID: 201208-01)
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)
Finally, in related PlayStation 3 DEX news LOGAN5 has made available RepackDEX+ for PS3 DEX console owners, stating the following:
I do this little tool, because I was tired of all these manipulations do to play games on PS3 DEX 4.21. This program allows you to recompress quickly game update without drm for ps3 4.21 dex+ ... just drag *.pkg (cex) on the window.
It allows you to play games installed on the internal hard disk of the PS3 DEX 4.21 (not tested with BDemu)
1 - On your PC use Repkgdex+ to repack Game update / patch (cex to dex)
2 - Copy the new pkg file on USB pendrive
3 - Install it on PS3 (via USB)
4 - Copy to hdd your ps3 Game in your created folder (HDD0/GAME/BLESXXXX) without the replacing EBOOT.BIN & PARAM SFO
5 - Go to XMB and launch the game
I'm a little programmer... a noob ... there are still bugs to fix thank you to report me if there are errors. I hope i was clear with my explanation for the use. Bye ! Have a nice day !

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.
