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)

This is a good news and good leak, but it will help developers only since the DCER consoles is not available for every one

A PS3 that looks like the pic below is a debug unit for developers to write games, retail units are the ones they sell you in the shops...

Following up on the PS3 DEX (DECH) 4.55 OFW Test / Debug update, today xxmcvapourxx made available PS3 DECR (Reference Tool) OFW Update 4.60 with more updates and details below.

Download: (152.7 MB) / ebootrom.7z (230.3 MB - EBOOTROMs with 0x40 byte header for Prototype / DECR systems) by zecoxao via BobbyBangin / E/rxxx Ebootrom Decrypter Python Script (CEB Ebootrom Decrypter) / decr_cp_toolchain.7z by flatz via zecoxao


Credits: My good buddy who I wont mention thank you.

From the included ReadMe File: PS3UPDAT.PUP.460.001

Finally, from zecoxao: Looks like the 2_I is covered with symbols on the elfs. Nice

E/rxxx Ebootrom Decrypter Python Script by flatz

This script allows you to decrypt E/rXXX ebootroms:,11



It's here in form of release. Ebootroms are in the same format as pups.. there are a lot of types of ebootroms. This script can decrypt the external ones.. eboots are just selfs.

PS3 DECR CP Toolchain by flatz via zecoxao (linked above)

Flatz has released a toolchain that allows building elfs on DECR cp and let's you use them

Don't forget to set the path:

and to fix the relative path errors with subst:

It requires cygwin.

BIG NOTE: for the samples to work they MUST have the .elf extension at compile time, or else THEY WON'T WORK.

Update: Also below from zecoxao is a PS3 DECR 3.41 PUP with Peek & Poke and more with details as follows:

Download: PEEK_POKE.PUP (129.0 MB) / Proof / More Dumps / RootKey (works on eEID, so it's valid now for HDD dumps) / EIDROOT.7z (rootkey dumper, packed with 3.41 cex root key dumper for DECR) / DECR_MFW355.PUP / LV1 / LV2 Dumps / backup_srk_srh.bin

After trying to convince 3absiso to install this PUP on his DECR, he finally did so after downgrading today. and he can now dump the NAND, dump lv1 and dump lv2, which will let us discover more about the DECR itself.

This is a plain old DECR Peek&Poke 3.41 mfw made with mfw builder. anybody is welcome to use it. and i'm glad good old mfwbuilder works just as fine for DECR PUPs

Just a note, it has included lv1 and lv2 peek and poke.

Any news on the 4.5 update? It surprised me that it came right as R* released the GTA Online gameplay.

Holy wow! Not even 2 days I check back and there's more! Awesome! Though with all these releases, I'm not wondering if someone somewhere has the full / proper Shop updates for 2.42, 2.51 and 4.45. These are the only ones I'm missing in my collection now. So if anyone anywhere has them, it would be awesome to get them. Thanks for the releases!!
