A big thanks to the Team Rebug, the Three Musketeers, PS3 Dev Wiki, Graf_Chokolo, EUSS, naehrwert and especially Rancid (o) who created / the entire project.

Update: From Rancid-o: How to use the pkg: http://www.ps3ita.it/download/homebrew/Fix_Update_4.21+.pkg

1) Run a game from Multiman
2. Returning to the XMB, if you have not already done so, start the game and download the update, at this point if the update is greater than 4.21 will give the usual error 0x80010009 and return to xmb..
3. Run Fix_Update_4.21+
4. Start the game again

Note: The fix for that game is permanent. If you have already downloaded the update just run the game from multiMAN, back to the XMB, run the pkg and run the game. Sorry for the bad English, oh forgot works on all cfw 4.xx

Guys.. use version 2 of the "Change IDPS All Region": http://www.ps3ita.it/download/homebrew/Change_IDPS_All_Region_v2-4.21.pkg

The first version had a stupid "bug" that does not allow you to use the online pass purchased. Sorry for that..

forgive me, but may i ask, what are the advantages of dex now apart from debug options, since 4.xx cfw's are out?

Following the recent 4.30 DEX Warning, this weekend DemonHades reports that Team Mate (via Checko) have now leaked the Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.25 update which has been confirmed working by several Spanish PlayStation 3 developers.

Download: Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.25 Update / Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.25 Update (Mirror) / Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.25 Update (Mirror #2)

PS3UPDAT4.25DEX MATE_TEAM .PUP
MD5: DA0B4C5ACDAEB8407762B41F6BFA7DFE

From MARA87: Just checked the appldr.. version is 4.25. seems legit to me.. otherwise i would not posted it

  • Auth-ID [lv0]
  • Vendor-ID [hv]
  • SELF-Type [lv0]
  • Version 04.25

Changelog for the DEX FW:

[Bug Fix]
[NP related]

  • The following bug has been fixed.
  • (B#101456)

When 24 hours have elapsed in a signed-in state after the last sign-in to the PlayStation Network, there is a problem where almost all of the NP Library APIs will return errors. (TechnoteID: 201208-01)

As always, 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)

Finally, in related PlayStation 3 DEX news LOGAN5 has made available RepackDEX+ for PS3 DEX console owners, stating the following:

I do this little tool, because I was tired of all these manipulations do to play games on PS3 DEX 4.21. This program allows you to recompress quickly game update without drm for ps3 4.21 dex+ ... just drag *.pkg (cex) on the window.

It allows you to play games installed on the internal hard disk of the PS3 DEX 4.21 (not tested with BDemu)

FAST TUTO

1 - On your PC use Repkgdex+ to repack Game update / patch (cex to dex)
2 - Copy the new pkg file on USB pendrive
3 - Install it on PS3 (via USB)
4 - Copy to hdd your ps3 Game in your created folder (HDD0/GAME/BLESXXXX) without the replacing EBOOT.BIN & PARAM SFO
5 - Go to XMB and launch the game

I'm a little programmer... a noob ... there are still bugs to fix thank you to report me if there are errors. I hope i was clear with my explanation for the use. Bye ! Have a nice day !
