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)

Finally, from the PlayStation 3 Dev Wiki on Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.11:

To quote: Hi everybody, here to release my new update.

PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.6 Changes:

  • Added CEX 2 DEX
  • New Interface
  • Fixed PKG decryptor button
  • Fixed EDAT Tool button
  • Removed second GUI form
  • Minor bug fixes and code changes to perform better

I have been asked a lot recently to add in a debug PKG decryptor because all I had is a Retail decryptor & extractor. Well I did, but last minute checks, I noticed it was not performing the way I wanted it too.

So instead of releasing faulty code/tool on my program and say it works half way, I'd rather withdraw the feature until a further update when I can have it working properly to my standards and what should be most.

This whole CEX to DEX is going around, I felt like adding it to GUI form had to...

To quote: andbey0nd has released (pastie.org/4243807) another tool to us this morning. c2d is a Cex 2 Dex Flash Patcher. Currently it only works with 16mb NOR. Slowly but surely the scene seems to be coming back to life. 1 hack at time... Thanks andbey0nd and keep up the awesome work!

[andbey0nd] works for 16MB flash dumps (NOR) only
[andbey0nd] also if for some reason a WRONG EID key is provided - the program will abort and will not generate invalid DEX flash.. so no chance for bricking
[andbey0nd] if an output DEX flash file is created - it means that it is valid
