February 5, 2012 // 9:37 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:

I have real PS3 DEX on Fw 3.70 who know if I update to 4.xx. it can downgrade to 3.55 because in Fw 3.70 I can down by 3.70 -> 3.55 -> 3.41

I want to test something on FW 4.x and return to 3.55 FW

Then you maybe already use the special downgrader pup's cause i have special downgrader pup's for 3.60 / 3.72 / 4.0 on my disk

Or it is in case of QA Flag and if the flag is set you can downgrade without the special downgrader fw. But in case sony changed the offset of the flag on 3.60 we need to use the special downgrader pup on 3.60 again to go down too 3.55 and below.

But with service mode and changing the idps again you would be able to go back to a normal retail fw.

Yes they are dev's. I'm not scared to call the names, i simply don't have permission to do so. That has a good reason but i maybe will explain it when we release something. If i would call the things they have done i would already say to much but it mainly have nothing to do with games at the end.

The way to get hand's on the elf's is so old that no body does think about it after the whole JIG and key stuff we have seen. And the dev's which have entered the scene to JIG times doesn't know about it cause the only coded apps but never gave a deeper look on the possibilities available.

To the downgrade process on a DEX console: You can switch between the fw like you want, the downgrader do you only need if you want to downgrade your console under a DEX FW below 3.55. If you are on, for ex. 4.1 you can switch 2 3.60 then back 2 4.0 etc.

Cheers

Thanks for your kind answer, bro Considering MM works on DEX too, could be interesting. I have just 1 ps3, if i will buy a second one i could think about it and test some stuff

I hope you're not talking about a 4.11 CFW, Tepoo, it's enough clear how it's mathematically impossible (kakaroto explained more than enough about it :rolleyes

p.s. the devs you found, are they devs? What did they accomplish on their career , especially about games (without details if you're scared to give names). Just wondering..

I was wondering if it's revesible. I mean, when CEX turn to be a DEX, is it possible to go back using a CEX FW and any other CFW? Does it work the 4.11 > 3.55 >4.11 trick without a downgrade like progskeet?

Well slow progress to time. I used the last weeks to get some dev's of the scene involved into it and it isn't not easy to find one this days. But finally we found a few sharing some infos with us and get some one involved into it. As every time i won't give some name's.

To time we concentrate on the games. After that is done and we can release something to turn the scene into a living and free one back we will finish the cex2dex project.
