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:

It seems you haven't read correctly. The description tell you that you need to send your eEID and Per_Console_Key to a specific person which will convert it for you to a debug one.

But this person won't do it anymore and not for everyone. This means there is no public way to time to convert your retail to a debug console.

What i would like to know, what is all possible if i change my Retail to a Dev Console?

Am i able to use the newest backupmanager and run all games without the need of a hexed bin file? Or am i only able to install homebrews?

Because what i read in the description is doable for me, i just want to know if it is worth the work. Would be cool if someone could tell me what i can do all with a Debug Console.

If i am able to play all games with a backup manager on the firmware version it would be interesting for me ^^

It's bit more then just changing the idps and no request_idps.txt is the already patched file which contains a special magic, offset and the allready patched and re-encrypted eid segments 0,4 and 5.

But the average user will not be able to do it on his own and have to wait till some one or a team accoomplish the job and release a tool for the end user.

The both well known dev's who can do it dont release there tools. The One have a good reason the other one don't have. But it's underground and never given out to some one other.
