PS3 CEX to DEX Converted Units Bricking on OFW 4.30 DEX Update


Sponsored Links
123w ago - 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.

This is just a plain 4.41 DEX firmware with lv1ldr patched to prevent CEX2DEX bricks. Useful for anyone who just wants standard DEX.

I've attempted to create a DEX 4.41 CFW, the main test is to make sure the lv1ldr patches are correct (preventing CEX2DEX brick). This DEX firmware has been spoofed to 4.46.

ONLY TEST THIS IF YOU HAVE A HARDWARE FLASHER AND A BACKUP DUMP

This is a zip containing all of the modified files : https://mega.co.nz/#!WBEXzTLR!XRZaqxrDpiepPf6RZ-E18FTVOFFG6EG9iAbcRWAPzIs

If you test this firmware, please report back.

Hi,

I have a question regarding my PS3 CEX to DEX console.

The console's Blu Ray drive died, so, many months ago, I converted to DEX. I believe I have xaxaxaaxa patched DEX FW (I'm sure I installed this). I converted from a CEX CFW as running games discless was a bit hit and miss. The DEX firmware has served me well, that is until games requiring 4.40 FW started to appear.

Would I be correct in thinking that games patched to run on firmware < 4.40 would not run on DEX, as any update PKG for the game would (potentially) necessitate 4.40 FW? Of course this would only be the case for the very latest games.

Is there any way I can run these new games on my console as it is now? Or should I try to convert back to CEX and keep my fingers crossed that discless compatibility is a bit better now? Or should I lay out 20 quid on a new Blu Ray drive (and then convert back to CEX anyway)? Or... something else?

Thanks in advance

Er... I meant MiralaTijera 4.30 patched DEX FW - no idea how I screwed that bit up!

Right now there isn't much point to it. I would keep your system the way it is.

Thanks for the explanation.

I thought you can change a retail to DEV console. If possible is there any advantages?

It all depends on you system if you have a retail system use cex. If you have a development systems use dex. Thanks.

Hello,

I have bee doing a bit of searching and could not find some good info on the differences between CEX and DEX CFW. Can anyone post a good link or explain the differences and any other recommendations regarding the two?
