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)

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

You should be OK if you've got your original CEX dumps/files. If you brick converting back it won't be permanent and you can fully convert back. Do you have any USB device that you can get a psgroove payload on?

I've got a converted Dex PS3 Slim console (initial firmware 3.20 120gb) Now on 4.21 OFW DEX. I'm trying to revert the PS3 back to CEX after all the scene progress of DEX has stopped as everything is again about CEX now.

I've tried to follow all the guides on the internet and they all make reference to having QA Flagged your console before the initial CEX->DEX conversion. Since I didn't do that, I'm wondering if this compromises my chances of reverting back from DEX->CEX. I'm worried because of the increased chance of brick that people report. As apparently, it's more dangerous converting back

I'm not so clear on the matter and whether it's ok for me. In fact, what does QA Flagging have to do with this conversion process anyway?
