is there a decent complete tutorial to convert?
Bricked my PS3! everything went well until i flashed the dex to the ps3
I got my metldr now All linux dumps were invalid, preloader advance did it
Is there a way to get "make" etc. working on live-CD, or do we have to install it?
I just used CFW3.55-SPECIAL-otheros++-pub and not the xxxEIGTHxx one which does a separate partition?
Can i install it anyway?? or wíll it overwrite gameos?
I would also try if I had another spare PS3 but I don't! I have every type of gaming system in our home you can think of & 2 systems of the same console for some. I just don't have an extra PS3 now. I sold my OFW console back earlier this year.
Did you put in an extra option or is it an option there already?
I got 2 dumps. 1 from Preloader Advance which is 256MB and 1 from another flash dumper which is 239MB and CEX2DEX says they are both valid and they both dump the same METLDR.
its is possible to brick your ps3 with this so be careful, you can recover with a hardware flasher, solder the nor tristate wire.. i wouldn't suggest going ahead with this unless you have another way to reprogram your nor or nand chips. all i did was byte reverse my dexflash.bin and use the e3 flasher to program the nor.
Can't you keep it in service mode and reflash it if it fails? Or is it a total brick and no service mode?
I got a dongle for service mode if that means anything but no hardware flasher. I might go get one just in case.
Just a dumb question, we do not need FSELF EBOOTs to run the backup game, retail ones work fine?
CEX2DEX working beautiful over here! 007 Reloaded (3.72fw) working with 1.02 update! Unfortunately, its the only game i can test because i sold all the other ones.
From what I've saw, people are bricking their PS3's by dumping via one method and flashing via another. If people are going to do that then they got what's coming for them.
