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).

PUP Information

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)

Right now there isn't much point to it. I would keep your system the way it is.

Thanks for the explanation.

I thought you can change a retail to DEV console. If possible is there any advantages?

It all depends on you system if you have a retail system use cex. If you have a development systems use dex. Thanks.

Hello,

I have bee doing a bit of searching and could not find some good info on the differences between CEX and DEX CFW. Can anyone post a good link or explain the differences and any other recommendations regarding the two?
