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)

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?

My console (DEX) does not accept any firmware except Rogero. I want to install firmware 3.55 dex for downgrade XMB I am faced with the error 80029CCA.

Check will do more than just fun recovery. I'm Grateful for your help

check your debug settings and restore them to default & verify MD5 of your PUP.
