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

Yeah in the end it did work. The game is in English now. But the characters don't talk. There are no voices in the game. All of the other sounds work (music etc.)

So i tried but with no success. Here are some useful things to note:

  • First tried all the reactpsn 2.20 methods, but i didn't manage to activate psn titles whatsoever. So, next i tried by manually patching the .vsh (which previously worked as a final solution on my 3.55 cex) and then using reactpsn 2.0 with previously activated exdata folders, with no success.
  • To activate write on flash YOU MUST USE Multiman CEX version. The DEX version doesn't allow you to mount flash and freezes your ps3.
  • And NEVER use a 3.55 CEX (retail) .vsh file for it will semibrick your ps3. I tried with all the DEX (debug) ones that i know of and a custom one to no avail. Maybe it could work 100% if we had a specific .vsh made for this 3.55 dex. It is rather weird why Rogero hasn't tried to implement it yet.

The psn games managed to go as far as the classic XXXXXXXX error screen after 5-10 seconds. And you can most likely kiss DLC goodbye (Unless someone confirms that it runs with PS3GEN images). Dunno if it's because of QA flagging, Console Model or else but i had everything working fine before changing to DEX. I also tried with a lot of debug settings but kept getting the same errors.

I read that there's this failproof method that consists of making your own DEX.PUP using MFW BUILDER with this task: [Register or Login to view links], so any takers are welcome.

Can someone help me out? I just converted my CEX to DEX4.20. Can somebody tell me, step by step, how I get games like The Amazing Spiderman and Sleeping Dogs to work. I have installed the latest multiman and have PS3GEN on my laptop.
