73w ago - Following up on the ongoing DEX thread and previous leak, today the Sony PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 4.11 update has surfaced for both PlayStation 3 collectors and developers on the PS3 Dev Wiki (linked above) from an anonymous source.
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:
73w ago - Following up on the recent PS3 C2D CEX to DEX Flash Patcher and PS3Tools GUI Edition v2.6, today I have released a CEX2DEX application that will allow you to extract the METLDR from ANY (NOR / NAND) PlayStation 3 flash dump and create a valid DEX (Debug / Test) flash from the given CEX (Retail) flash.
