January 15, 2012 // 6:22 pm - For those who own PS3 Debug / Test consoles or are simply into collecting PlayStation 3 file leaks, recently PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.74 surfaced alongside version 4.00 from Sony's North American Press Web site.

Download: PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 3.74 / PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 4.00

If you didn't know, the address to their Press site is and Sony offers free access to all members of the press there using SCEA / SC3APR to login and obtain the latest press releases and related files.

Finally, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.

We have 100% confirmed that 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)

Special Thanks to ConsoleDev for the heads-up on the news tip!

Following up on the previous Sony PS3 Debug / Test leak, today the PlayStation 3 DEX Firmware 4.41 PUP has surfaced via Akela with details below.

Download: Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.41 Update / Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.41 Update (Mirror)

MD5 Hash: 62ac9ddd2659678e064ceb767dc9a729

As previously reported, those with converted PS3 consoles should hold off installing this update as it will brick your system.

From the included Readme_DECH-441_001_e.txt file:

[Register or Login to view code]

From haxxxen on how to manually add an RSOD bypass to any PS3 CFW:

If you decrypt the 4.x basic_plugins.sprx, just search for: 409E002048000010 and replace with: 4800002048000010

This is based on rogero's 4.x bypass patch and i have only searched for it to patch it myself to lower 4.x cfws. I dunno if it is related to rsod, but he also added some trophy patch. I am using both of them

To patch np_trophy_util.sprx based on rogero, just search for: 419E00887B5E0020 and replace with: 480000887B5E0020

Finally, from Sony PS3 hacker cyberskunk: It is legit.. MD5 matches the one we got about a month ago.. REX has been 'almost' ready for that long to but I have been very busy with other non-PS3 things. Wont be long though..

Spoofers/Update Packages for 421-441 CEX/DEX/REX were finished earlier today but have not had a chance to get around to releasing them yet

It's coming.. I have been really busy but as I type this the build that I hope to be the final for this release is installing now..

There are KLicense tools which can calculate them or brute force them

For those curious the game is Bonk: Brink of Extinction and is complete (unreleased, but complete)

This is a VERY out of the box question. I have a game that never got released for PS3, I have a CFW PS3 (plus some dev units which can already play the game...but thats beyond the point). I need to sign the game + pkg it for installation. I have got the game running but it just bails with no error.

Second part of my question is: The game has apparently 3 pieces of DLC that were planned, the DLC files seem to be in place, just need to be activated. I don't know if the DLC is active or not until I get the game working, but lets say it's not... what would I need to unlock it.

Keep in mind, this game NEVER saw the light of day and I may be one of select who even have it... so PSN downloads are not possible.

If someone with real experience with doing this could help or knows someone who can help that'd be awesome.

NOTE: This is a NPDRM game, obviously. I have the EDAT files...but don't know the KLicense for it.
