October 19, 2013 // 2:08 pm - Following up on the PS3 DEX 3.71, 3.72 and 3.73 updates, today some more PS3 Debug / Test Firmware versions have surfaced from anonymous for collectors including 4.31 and 4.40 below.

As always, it's important to note that these PS3 Debug / TEST updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so it is intended for examination and comparison purposes only unless you own a Dev unit.

For those curious, running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)


PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.31 and 4.40 Updates Surface

Thanks Cairobeta and +Rep! I have added it to the main article now and will also post some more older PS3 Debug leaks tonight for collectors.

Thanks for this! This is why I'm glad I came across and love PS3 News. I've been waiting for the 4.46 and 4.50 DEX, but certainly didn't expect the extras! Definitely a sweet update. Now my personal archive is even more complete. Would be even better if someone somehow eventually released even more ancient updates, along with the full SDK. Though we'll see what happens. Keep up the awesome work!

It's such a sham about the "partial" SDK. I wonder if the full SDK will be available some time. That'd be really handy!

Same here, although I haven't checked newsgroups etc. If anyone runs across it feel free to share as we don't mind links to SDK files at all.
