September 1, 2011 // 12:05 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!

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)
