Hello guys. I convert my ps3 slim 2504b (NOR) to DEX. It have work well. Only Problem is, that c2d ... or i think the OpenSSL 64bit and/or 32it not really work on Win7 64bit. A friend patched my NORBIN in hes win 7 32bin.
the only problem what i have is now, that i can't start any games over Multiman (of course DEX 4.xx Version). Do i need a peek and poke dex firmware? if yes, where can i find it?
Tried it with 256MB NAND PS3 and it works, although I didnt use anything related on otherOS PUP's. Just a plain LV2 patch to load Linux.
All process were done on linux, from dump the NAND >> Extract >> metldrpwn >> patch the NAND for DEX with the EID0 gained in metldrpwn >> flash the DEX.
After that, turned off the console and turned back on. As usual it boots, and began installing DEX firmware.
Mentioning that I didnt loose a single save file nor a game data or PSN games currently stored on my PS3. All games works as usual, PSN games dont work though since the keys used on those PSN games to sign is probably already blacklisted anyway.
WOW nice to hear Congratulations!!! (you got a NAND-tut? ) I'm on 256MB NAND too, but all dumps were shown as invalid in "cex2dex.exe". So I used Preloader Advance to dump, and there it was, the extracted metldr.
Just installed Linux on internall hdd (I used the eighth-pup) I stucked on the make-command, so i switched from live-cd 2 installed-on-hdd. Now i'm downloading linux-2.6.tar.gz to get the missing commands...
LAST Update. IT WORKED! I rebooted and it finally dumped a working metldr. I put it back into CEX2DEX and it finally asked where to save the new file. I flashed it back with Preloader Advance 3.1 and it's now installing a DEX firmware.
I've noticed it also removed QA mode which I'm guessing as its a DEX console it no longer needs QA mode?
SO, if you are going to follow the new tutorial add 1 more step. 24.5 if dumped file is 0's go back to step 18.
Oh, after all that it YLOD on me. The DEX firmware killed it for me. It was working till it finished the install.
