Yes, but I did not test it yet. Im on RogeroV2-Dex-3.55.

Next week I try the unofficial Rebug DEX with ProDG & Target Manager

erm, maybe some stupid idea but what about cell reset line and debug?

mathieulh himself said it works on debug and maybe with target manager/debugger to dump the memory.

on this you would need no exception to my understanding

what tools do people use like Team Duplex to get games like PES 2013 fix done?

1) Convert to DEX & update to 4.2x , so u can start all games (with DEX-game-patch)
2) Get a Hardware to dump the RAM while game is launching
--2*) If no Hardware to dump available, u need to create a "triggerable" crash & activate CORE DUMP in Debug Settings
3) Extract the decrypted EBOOT.ELF from dump
4) Resign with 3.55keys & make the pkg
5) "Update" to 3.55 DEX-CFW (i.e. RogeroV2-DEX)
6) Test it, Confirm it, Upload it, share it

Cheers
Blade
