Thanks, sorry for the long time for a reply, but I believe that the problem is the esata station, because now that I put my games onto the external hd, when I play them sometimes they freeze during gameplay, but when I unplug the power from the esata station & plug it back in, the game resumes as if nothing happened.
I converted my NAND ps3 to DEX a long time ago. Now I am trying to convert back to CEX. I don't have original flash but I think I was able to dump my eid root key and my nand flash after downgrading to 3.41 DEX. Now when i use PS3Tools 4.0 Cex >> Dex it says: Wrong format of EID key file: 16777216 byes (16MB) expected, but 251396096 found!
I don't know how to get around this. I've searched and searched and I see other people have the same problem but I don't see a solution. I don't know what to do. I'm totally lost.
I just want to be able to save my backups and play them internally. I've been out of the scene a long time and I don't know what I should do anymore thats why I'm trying to go back to CEX because it seems like that's the best setup.
Please let me know what I should do...
Thanks for this post. It's been very helpful. I tried searching and was unable to find an answer so I wanted to ask here:
In the reverting steps, you mentioned you need to be on 3.55 OFW, not 3.55 downgrade. I've used 3.55 downgrade to downgrade from 4.21 DEX, but am unable to get the 3.55 OFW to install after that? Am I doing something wrong or is 3.55 downgrade ok for installing the CEX flash back.
Thanks in advance,
All you need is eid_root_key to go back to CEX.
You can obtain them at 3.55 CEX or semi cex.
Use FSM (any method) to install 3.55 rogero CFW (latest is better) from 3.55 DEX if your on DEX and lost ur eid root key.
Then run eEID_RKDumper.pkg (Mirror: dropbox.com/s/0q1eiym10xomphh/eEID_RKDumper.pkg[/url] (don't attach any storage media at USB)
Then grab ur eid_root_key at hdd0/tmp
Install rebug 4.31 D-REX
Dump your nor/nand flash via rebug toolbox
Convert ur DEX flash to cex
Then convert to cex using rebug toolbox, make sure qa_flag enabled.
