February 5, 2012 // 8:37 pm - Following up on the previous update, this weekend PlayStation 3 homebrew development group DexL0ve have made available a PS3 patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX consoles followed by a revision below that fixes PS3 crashing issues.

Download: PS3 Patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX Consoles / PS3 Patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX Consoles (Mirror) / PS3 Patched DEX LV2_Kernel.Self for CEX Consoles (Fixed)

Essentially this PKG release is a patched LV2 DEX (Debug / Test) kernel for CEX (Retail) PS3 consoles based on the recent LV2 Loader release.

To quote: From my limited understanding of PS3 coding and reading the NFO file, that by using the LV2_Loader released by Team Rebug earlier, and by QA flag'ing your CEX machine, this file is basically a patched LV2 DEX kernel that will load fully on your CEX machine and thereby give you some DEX (aka) TEST machine L0VE on your Jailbroken PS3 Console.

From Cyberskunk: Syscall 8, 9, 10 are broken in this lv2_kernel.self. The patch for 3.55 CEX lv2 has been used which ends up point to the wrong offset. The kernel will still work but if an app calls those syscalls the PS3 will crash. Hopefully it was just a mistake and they will fix it..

Finally, from the included PS3 NFO File:

Assuming this gets finished or the version that doesn't require IDPS surfaces then yes you could convert your Retail PS3 to a Debug and use the downgrade PUP as mentioned above.

I just gave it a peek there now, it appears to be the same archive just compressed differently but unpacked they both are 168 MB (177,168,689 bytes) in size.

Here are the related links/mirrors for it from there if anyone needs them: (dex-cex.rar 2011-08-28 08:06:13)

Well, if the IDPS stuff is somehow reversed, this means that any < 3.55 retail console could be converted into a 100% true debug. Which would, at least until now be able to use the latest available debug updates!
