PS3 CEX to DEX Converted Units Bricking on OFW 4.30 DEX Update

1400°
78w ago - It's been a few months since the last PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 leak, however, we are now hearing reports that PS3 CEX to DEX Converted units are bricking when PlayStation 3 scene developers attempt to upgrade to Sony's OFW 4.30 DEX update.

This means if you have a converted unit and currently try to use the (not yet public / leaked) 4.30 DECH update you will get a brick... so consider yourself warned in advance!

What happens is when the bricked unit is powered on the light turns green for a few seconds, then you hear 3 beeps and its goes off.

It is suspected (unconfirmed) the reason why this bricking occurs in CEX to DEX converts on OFW 4.30 DEX is because the EID5 isn't changed, which is one factor separating the converted Retail to Debug / Test consoles from genuine and righteous DECH (DEX) consoles.

Finally, for those curious, the PS3 4.25 DEX update (also not publicly leaked yet) is not patched by Sony to brick converted consoles, so this would be the last PS3 Debug / Test Firmware you could update your converted console...

88w ago - Following up on the ReActPSN v2.20 and ReActPSN PS3 RAP2RIF .RAP to .RIF File Converter updates, today Chinese PlayStation 3 homebrew developer eid0dex1 has made available ReActPSN v2.22 followed by v2.23 which includes CEX2DEX and DEX2CEX support among the changes outlined below.

To quote, roughly translated: The method is very simple to use, only to start the conversion from CEX! Recommendation: before the conversion must use memdump backup FLASH.

CEX2DEX: The suggested retail machine CEX brush 3.55K (measured rebug3.55 also can), press the arrow keys to run reActPSN v2.23 Right about 8 seconds C2D conversion was successful buzzer three times and automatically restart, upgrade DEX firmware can .
