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)

Something must of gone wrong, after I flashed my CEX NANDBIN I went to the XMB screen and turned it off. Then when I turn it on it does a quick few beeps and powers down. I can screw with it a little by jamming on the eject button but I doubt that helps. Also my USB stick will not light up at all.

What should I do to fix this? I know there are multiple flasher dongle things is that my way out?

Thanks.

Hello, i was wondering if someone could help on converting my rebug 3.55 cex to dex... Here's the prob.. I dumped my nandbin file and i got my eid_root_key.. i installed SSL and got the c4d.exe file... all worked but when i start up cmd and run it as admin, typed in c:\c2d> c2d.exe eid_root_key.bin flashCEX.bin flashDEX.bin 82...

soo i was wonder originally it is named flashCEX.nandbin... do i switch it to just switch it to bin cuz when i type that the cmd msg appear file is in use... so am i missing here?? or is it the fact i'm doin it in windows 8.. if so can someone convert it for me or point me in the right direction cuz my ps3 JB bd rom is messed up and i would like to make the switch ..ty
