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)

i've no idea why there is so much hatred towards dex users, they are same as all the other ps3 users just had the bravery and knowledge to risk going to dex. whether your on cex or dex don't really matter your a modified ps3 user and should be together like brothers.
i'm sooooo glad i sold my ps3s cos chances are i'd have bricked my dex playing with this firmware. yes it would have been my own fault.
same as all those who bricked on the 4.25cex cfw , its not rogeros fault. anything we do to our ps3s is our own responsibility. Aim your hatred towards Sony not each other.
I'm still proud that I never installed that piece of you know what. I'm safe and quiet playing Resident Evil 6 on my 3.55 Kmeaw, and soon I'll be playing Assassin's Creed III.
BTW I do not wish anything bad to DEX users.. It's just a shame for them for not making the right choice, Why would we want dex users to have a bad ending? I mean, it's excelent that with this news you can be warned and do not brick it, PS3 costs a lot, and even more if it is with a CFW.
I had a DEX console but it bricked when I installed the first DEX firmware (3.55 DEX) as I flashed it from XMB not recovery. Now for the worst of it, the installer who was installing the Progskeet killed the board.
I'm hoping he replaces the whole console or at least the motherboard as its a 60GB he killed. I have a NAND backup all ready to restore back to CEX but as the chip is now missing a few legs its dead.
Lets hope I can get another PS3 to test out all these new firmwares and hopefully the next one will be able to install the progskeet and live.
