I'm waiting for the Dex 4.20 to be able to: peek & poke plus retail pkg installs. If I get this right only Dex 3.55 is able to do that so far.
And if you convert your retail ps3 to 4.11 Dex flash, you will be able to only have 4 games at a time and the games must be on USB but it runs all firmware games up to 4.11... all your old PSN games would work but your not able to install new one with pkg manager since it cant read retail pkg yet.
I think it's best to wait... When it's possible to play full retail backups on the internal HDD on a DEX firmware, then it would probably be worth the risk to flash for a non bricked dex ps3
When the PS3 is converted to DEX can you still install 355CFW on it or is it only DEX firmwares?
And with the games from USB what about the 4GB+ games? How are they run from USB? Does it have to be FAT32 format or can it be NTFS?
You can only install DEX CFW since your PS3 is already flagged as DEX. Although, there are custom CEX there like Rogero's latest CFW that supports DEX converted console. This means you can just switch over to it anytime you want.
Also you can revert it back to CEX, just flash back the unpatched/clean NOR/NAND dump you had before.
DEX is also for those who want to explore the ps3 and run their own code on it using the tools leaked with the SDK. on CEX the code must be signed by you-know-who. on DEX it can run also (it seems to be only...) if fake signed (easily done with the tools provided with the SDK).
What about games without update pkg's?
It seems there are not only 4 games compatible, I've found a list with compatible pkgs for 4.11 DEX (hence compatible games)

In theory, every game that has an update can be launched on 4.11 dex (updates are used as a workaround for retail eboots, I think)
Hey guys, anyone got a nice tut, how to resize ps3-paritions afterwards SAFELY? I got 298GB hdd & because of the 1/8-PUP my gameOS has got olny 32GB & linux got the rest... Is there a possibility to resize the partitions from linux without killing it?
Ohhh I just realized that i cannot boot Linux on my DEX-4.11 (80010017)
I know some ppl here managed dualboot dex4.11&linux, could u help me? I got dualboot with CFW3.55 & Linux installed on hdd...
Or is it only possible with DEX3.55withPeek&Poke ?
Why is multiman the only homebrew startable in DEX 4.11? multiMAN ver 04.04.03 BASE DEX (20120722).pkg other Homebrews are installable but not startable... what about making full-game.pkg like in the past? fake-signed so installable on dex4.11.
successfully get to DEX, it's faster to use redribbon instead of debian (since the debian is online installer)
and somehow, I've tried 2 games but nothing works. Galgun, failed at creating the package update file. Lollipop Chainsaw (the main reason I get DEX), no update at all, cannot run it -___- any help?
I can help you for converting to DEX, but for game, still no idea
I successfully created the update for Gal*gun (1.01).
If you want I can give you via private message.
What about the 2nd tab in the build section?
"For BD Emulator (*.emu)" ?
