About 4.30 DEX

4.30 DEX: Do *NOT* install this on a converted machine, it will result in a brick. There is a check on eid0(!) in lv1ldr, that will trigger a panic (fun fact: it's impossible to generate the checked data yourself, so no cex2dex without ugly patches anymore).

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)

The RedRibin.iso will not work for that. Metldrpwn use some files from your linux kernel source that you (normally) have previous compiled on your ps3. Just do the manual installer with debian and you will see that everything works fine.

If you need help and serious word come to irc channel #TeaM_AC1D at Hellcat and we will help you

i tried this method, right i burnt the Linux-2.6.39-Rnd.iso to a disc, go into petitboot then i just get a black screen, so it says run create_hdd_region.sh so i did that and rebooted then i get the linux loading screen but it hangs on Registering the dns_resolver key type.

anyway i'm downloading the iso again just incase it was corrupted somehow and i will extract them to a usb.. and try again

I love how many devs whine that it destroyed the ps3's hacking future. Please cut the bs, everybody knows that you kept it to yourself in order to enjoy the high fw privileges. If you were going to hack your way through the l0 and the keys you would have done it a long time ago... Higher versions only have more layers of protection.

By releasing this method Sony now knows how to fix it for the upcoming DEX FW. That was not without a reason why devs not made public this method!!! For devs with converted consoles it will be a massive hit in the face in the future!!!
