September 1, 2011 // 2:05 pm - It's been three weeks since the PS3 OFW 3.70 update was released, and today ConsoleDev tipped us off HERE that the PlayStation 3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.70 update is now in circulation publicly as well!

Download: PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.70 Update / PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.70 Update (Mirror)

To quote: PlayStation 3 Debugging Station System Software Update Data - Controlled item under export regulations US Export Administration Regulations ECCN 5D002

370_001 DECH (Debugging Station) Update Data

When the system software is updated to the version 3.56 or later, downgrading cannot be
performed using update data that is older than 3.55. As for details, please refer to the following technical note.


WARNING: Do *NOT* update from version below 0.96 directly to this flash. Instead, update from earlier versions to version 0.96, then update to this version. Failure to update to 0.96 prior to applying this flash may render your hardware inoperable. Such hardware must be returned to SCE for repair.

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)

Whenever I try to update to (4.25) I get: An error has occured (8002F827)

I already tried the mirror, gives the same message. Can anyone help me out?

I am on 4.21 DEX right now and wanted to update to 4.25 DEX. I already tried to update from 3.50 and 4.20. Also didn't work

Thanks for that tip, luckily both ps3s already on multiman 04.11.11

I ain't got round to installing it yet. i aint actually turned any of my ps3s on all day. been more interested in seeing if many bans happen over the next 24 hours. (bought a mini model helicopter and i've been playing really i'm only 40)

Also below is a Black Ops 2 - BLES01717 DEX fix 1.02 from beanbaggins stating the following:

I won't try the new DEX CFW yet so I can't confirm that this works online, but it should. I have tested Campaign mode and Zombies first level, and both are working fine on my end.

Also here is a Hitman Absolution Dex patch, tested and working from kittoo:

I somewhat agree, but I think the next big thing would be that hard to find exploit for the higher ofw users

Well, I'm stupid - I thought it had something to do with Vita. Otherwise this really isn't too exciting. I guess we've already gotten the "next big thing" anyways.

Hi Guys,

Ca someone put that sentence into other words : "IMPORTANT: If you are on ofw debug than 4.21 (type 4.25) must strictly pass before the fw Downgrader DEX"

I don't get it ? Thx for you Help

i don't need the change idps really cos its never going to be connected to internet. most its gonna get is connected to a pc through a router. and il make sure that router has no net access.

i've no idea why i struggle with those ilivid sites, but after the 6th attempt it gave me the right file finally.. always best to have it anyway

When the Change_IDPS is functioning properly, the LED will switch on the console from the usual green color to YELLOW

that sounds scarey, i really don't like my ps3 having yellow lights.
