To quote, roughly translated: "Very soon after its released version 4.00 debug Sony decides to release a Firmware 4.01 for stamped its consoles Test / Debug. We remind you that this type of firmware is not installed on the consoles so-called "Retail" we just buy in the store.

No changelog available at this time. See us before long a 4.01 in our living room, only time will tell. The file is available for download if you want to update your console to Test / Debug."

As always, 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)

Finally, in related news cotojestwtf has made available a Pendrive SWAP Mod + Way to Backups PS1/PS2 and PS3 on Debug Unit guide for those interested as follows:

I decided to share my work. Let's started.. Pendrive SWAP Mod it's like .tiff exploit. It hangs a system when you run a game, then u can swap a PS1/PS2 Game on Retail. But on Debug Unit PS3 Game recorded to BR!

Intructions to run a PS1/PS2 Backup RETAIL/DEBUG CONSOLE ONLY:

1. Format your pendrive to fat32.
2. Run SWAPMOD.exe and install it to your pendrive.
3. Run the PlayStation 3.
4. Insert original CD/DVD PS1/PS2*.
5. Insert pendrive to PS3 USB.
6. Go to category photos on PS3.
7. Get in on visible device (your pendrive).
8. Wait a one minute on that, or long.
9. Run the original game from XMB, system will hang on your wallpaper. (BlackScreen = fail, repeat the operations)
10. Slide the original game and insert a pirate/backup game.
- if you running PS2 game, insert backup/pirate game from PS2.
- if you running PS1 game, insert backup/pirate game from PS1.
11. Remove a pendrive.
12. Now if you swapped a discs, PS3 will run the backup/pirate game.

*You can run PS2 games if your Unit have a compatible. Exploit still works on OFW 4.00

Intructions to run a PS3 Backup DEBUG CONSOLE ONLY:

1. Go to Debug Seetings
2. Search a NPDRM Debug option - set No Entitlement (80029513)
3. So now u just must do same things, they are listed above. But you swpp now a original PS3 game with pirate/backup game.

Note: BACKUP GAMES FOR PS3 MUST BE RECORDED ON BLURAY DISC.! OR IT WONT WORK

Tested on OFW Debug 4.01

it only accepts "/GAMEZ" folder, just like hermes did

So its happy to use GAMES for the internal HDD but not the USB HDD. I hope thats just a bug and they will fix it in the next release.

Thanks mitsimatsimoto that was the problem.

Nice that its working on 4.21REX, BAD that it doesn't read USB drives. It only sees the games on the internal HDD.

Is there a way to change to USB drive that I'm missing? I can only see games in my internal drive but the USB drive is blinking and doesn't stop. So far is a LOT faster than MultiMan which I like. Just wish there was a way to put more games on the screen at the same time. 4x3 is ok, but 8x4 is better.

Following up on IrisManager v1.38 and their Install Fake BDEmu PKG PS3 DEX CFW Dummy BDEmu Guide, Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid (o) has made available Iris Manager v1.40 which now supports the PS3ITA CFW 4.21 DEX and Rebug PS3 CFW in DEX mode.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote, roughly translated: For the uninitiated manager Iris is the only backup manager tool developed with legal (see PSL1GHT). unlike Multiman does not care much for frills, simply does its job well, it starts back up.

Has minimal graphics but its has the speed (do not get lost among a thousand options). It occupies very little space hd (1MB), so you can save valuable space (a popular backup manager uses space as a cache delll'hd and more space to store the cover, but do not believe it makes you burn more than 1GB ..

Another point in favor of this manager is that it is completely open source (Multiman NO!), Anyone can update with new features and adapt to a given cfw. Before today the manager only supported the CFW CEX 3.55, 4.21 and 4.30, but no CFW DEX..

So we decided to make it compatible with our CFW PS3ITA 4.21 DEX. In the future we will to the Italian translation of the manager and who knows maybe even adding some nice feature exclusive..

Ah, the manager is also compatible with CFW 4.21 Rebug mode and CEX and DEX.

v1.40 Changelog:

  • Support for PS3ITA CFW 4.21 DEX
  • Support for Rebug CFW in CEX & DEX mode

v1.45 Changelog (Roughly translated via ps3ita.it/homebrew/iris-manager-v1-40-supporta-anche-il-cfw-ps3ita-4-21-dex/): The previous version of Iris Manager (1.40) and the recently released (1.45) have a bug that makes the most of the games hang Loading on cfw 4.21 dex. All this because of our small mistake in bringing the payload to cfw 4.21 dex. (Sorry for that)

Now, thanks to a starboard Estwald (do saint) we were able to fix everything. You can download the new version from the usual link or at the following address: [Register or Login to view links] homebrew / irismanager-4-x-(4.21dex_support)-fixed_dex_payload.pkg

Finally, in related news from KDSBest on PS3 Debug Games: Hi, the following is possible on a REX 4.21.

You first has to swap your kernel to dex, which may get you the error on trophy register error on some games. (REX has to fix this).

1. Decrypt the EBOOT.BIN
2. Use make_fself to create an SELF file
3. Replace your EBOOT.BIN with your EBOOT.SELF (It has to be renamed to EBOOT.BIN).
4. Boot up the game with multiman
5. Use the TM/Debugger of your choice.

Simple as that.

PS: If ps3usercheat in db just changes eboot stuff you can decrypt eboot. apply patch. reencrypt done!

You should be able to apply the ps3usercheat stuff in there on your own now.

Greet, KDSBest
