October 25, 2012 // 2:03 am - It's been a few months since the last PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 leak, however, we are now hearing reports that PS3 CEX to DEX Converted units are bricking when PlayStation 3 scene developers attempt to upgrade to Sony's OFW 4.30 DEX update.

This means if you have a converted unit and currently try to use the (not yet public / leaked) 4.30 DECH update you will get a brick... so consider yourself warned in advance!

What happens is when the bricked unit is powered on the light turns green for a few seconds, then you hear 3 beeps and its goes off.

It is suspected (unconfirmed) the reason why this bricking occurs in CEX to DEX converts on OFW 4.30 DEX is because the EID5 isn't changed, which is one factor separating the converted Retail to Debug / Test consoles from genuine and righteous DECH (DEX) consoles.

Finally, for those curious, the PS3 4.25 DEX update (also not publicly leaked yet) is not patched by Sony to brick converted consoles, so this would be the last PS3 Debug / Test Firmware you could update your converted console to (and go online with PSoN DEX) unless a work-around patch fix is discovered.

Install rebug 4.65.2 Rex, install toolbox, dump eid root key using toolbox, switch dex target Id and kernel using toolboox. And now your ps3 is a dex ps3.

Yes you can install 4.70 d-rex edition after converting to DEX using the method I've described. It's not a true Dex conversion since a real Dex unit has more hardware than a converted cex but it's the same as using the old c2d.exe method and enough to install a (patched) Dex firmware and to use all the features that d-Rex offers.
