let's make the point. like anyone else I'm curious to know the DEX-FW's flash success percentage... I wish to make a poll: how many flash/brick we had 'till now? if bricked can you explain why?
as of now 50/50
If you follow the tuts here word by word, you should be safe... I got it on 256MB NAND without a hardware-flasher
You just need to read all posts one time. All necessary infos should be in this thread.
P.S.: USB stick: 10 hours later: 84%, 130min remaining [MW3]
Waiting for 4.21
my ps3 model is CECH 2506A - LW (SLIM) are this console able convert to DEX ??
I created and flashed fine but the firmware update YLOD it. So not sure where I am. I guess I'm both 50/50.
I have another question about the progskeet. Where can I find a layout or tutorial to connect it to the 60GB CECHC02 PS3? PS3 Dev Wiki doesn't have any pics or just about anything for installing it and Google isn't helping either.
I got the progskeet only as they didn't have any solderless kits and said they dont work anyway and the best way for this is to solder it. They also said it is pre setup for NAND flashing so I'm guessing I dont have to do anything else to it except install it.
Will they ever release a solution for those on newer firmware? I just find this a bit pointless. Since most are already on cfw or on ofw higher then 3.55. With cfw there is no reason to be on DEX firmware at all. It makes no sense to me.
On DEX you can play ANY game backed up to USB.
On 3.55CFW you can only play 3.55 and lower games and some 3.56+ game if they have a patch or a dongle and patch.
no reason? you can run all the games now, that's a good enough reason to be on DEX to me...
