October 16, 2012 // 2:55 am - Today the Italian PlayStation 3 developers at PS3ITA have released a PSoN DEX PKG allowing PS3 DEX (Debug) PSN access without the Software Pack nor FckPSN required for those who have converted their console from PS3 CEX to DEX.

Download: PS3ITA_PSoN_DEX.pkg / PS3ITA_PSoN_DEX_V2.pkg / Change_IDPS.pkg / Change_IDPS-All_Region.pkg

From their blog, roughly translated: Fresh news.. now thanks to itskamel you can access the store without FckPSN with a PS3 CEX.

Thanks to his work (and that of the people who helped him) we were able to develop a version for PS3 DEX.

Requirements: PS3 Debug (DEX) upright any CFW 3.55

1) Install "PSoN_DEX" on your PS3 DEX (Update: use "PS3ITA_PSoN_DEX_V2.pkg" on PS3 instead)
2) Start "PSoN_DEX" and wait for the reboot of the console
3) Install "Change_IDPS" on PS3 (Update: use "Change_IDPS-All_Region" on PS3 instead)
4) Run "Change_IDPS"
5) Connect to PSN

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Change_IDPS must be started after every reboot of the console before groped access to the PSN (if you do not get an error: 8002A224)
  • Check in the debug menu settings (it's under Network Settings), the NP Environment setting is set as NP (not SP-INT)
  • L 'IDPS is set as European (0 x 85)

Thanks to all the people involved in the implementation of the version for PS3 CEX, without them this would never come out PSoN DEX: itskamel, anonymous person, BobbyBlunt, EUSS, Zecoxao, sandungas.

Note: The article has been updated with Change_IDPS-All_Region.pkg. This new PKG files allow you to set the IDPS according to your region (EU, USA, etc..) Through an automated recognition.

Update: Italian PS3 ccene developer Rancid has been hard at work the last few days, first releasing PSoN and Change_IDPS Applications which allow users on DEX 3.55 access online, and now he's updated both apps again to include automatically setting your region in change_IDPS application and updating PSoN to version 2 which includes access to the PS3 Store and access to the TV section of the XMB.

UK users have an added bonus by getting access to 4OD and ITV Player, (BBC Iplayer not working), all without losing your Debug menus, no messing around with dev_blind or replacing certificates.

This is a nice tut. But can be very confusing for some people. I give you props for writing this up..

Note: Guide is almost the same for Rebug 4.30 users, simply dump your NOR/NAND on 4.30 - though this should be obvious anyway :dumb:

CEX2DEX using Rebug CFW 4.21 by Derektrotter

Downloads:

c2d + openSSL: http://www.mediafire.com/download/jwjggq4ji9a4953/c2d_openssl.rar
eEID_RKDumper.pkg: http://www.mediafire.com/download/cuzd44alg5wbfu5/eEID_RKDumper.pkg

Preparation:

Dumping EID root key

First you need to dump your EID Root Key which must be done on 3.55 cfw (downgrade using the 999 pup if needed).
Install and run the eEID_RKDumper.pkg, the PS3 will just show a black screen and beep several times. You can now restart the PS3 and retrieve your eid_root_key from /dev_hdd0/tmp/.

That is all you need from 3.55, you can go back to rebug 4.21.

Dumping NOR/NAND

You can do this on rebug 4.21 using the toolbox.
Find the option "Export Flash to File", this will dump it to USB001 (right slot).


Converting your CEX dump to DEX

First download and extract the c2d_openssl.rar to C:/ and install openSSL, this is required for c2d to work properly. Make sure you rename the folder to "openssl".
Now take you eid_root_key and your NOR/NAND dump and place in the folder with c2d.
Rename your original CEX dump to flashCEX.bin
Add .bin extension to eid_root_key.

Should now have a folder like this:


Open a CMD window in the current directory (CTRL+SHIFT + right click > Open a command window here)

Your CMD will look something like this:

c:\c2d>

So type in the command like this:

c:\c2d> c2d.exe eid_root_key.bin flashCEX.bin flashDEX.bin [target id]

(Note: Do not put the brackets when typing in your target id.)

Here's an example:


Should give you an output like this:


If you are unsure you have done it correctly, you can convert back to your original target ID (mine is 87)
Then compare this one with your original and they should match.

Switching to DEX using rebug 4.21

Take your two dumps (flashCEX.bin + flashDEX.bin) and rename as below:

Rename your original CEX dump to CEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or CEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Rename your converted DEX dump to DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Then place on USB001 (right slot)

Load up Rebug Toolbox and first click the option:


A couple of warning boxes pop up, click YES to both.

Now Swap LV2 kernal, reboot and you are in DEX Mode within 10 seconds


Switching back to CEX

Very easy, simply rewrite target ID and it will auto swap lv2 kernal to CEX.

To access PSN in DEX mode, there is a feature in Rebug Toolbox to spoof IDPS. Choose EID5 and you will be able to sign in fine. Btw, if anything in this tut doesn't make sense - let me know so i can make it even more noob friendly.

dump the NAND/NOR backup using hardware flashser and then restore the targetid back to retail one and use rogero flash downgrade app in PC and use your NAND/NOR backup to patch it and then flash it back to your PS3. Then it will remind you to reinstall a firmware after you turn it on, install a CFW that you want to use and youre done.

Hi all..

Bit of a dilemma, I semi bricked by converting DEX to CEX through multiman which I don't normally do, I'd normally run it through rebug toolbox and be sweet, anyway its semi bricked "5 beep thingo" and turns off.

Now I have a minimus dongle and just wondering if anyone has used this device to fix their own semi brick, I'm just a bit lost as to what hex file I should use, loading it etc I have read up on and it looks pretty straight forward, another issue im having is that everyone, well most people are stating that in order to use these dongles I must be on 3.55?

At the time of converting from DEX to CEX on was on 4.x REBUG, once I find correct hex, all I'll need to do is load lv2diag.self and rebugs 999 3.55.4 downgrader right? Anyone information would be appreciated!

Thanks!

good job, also from Rancid-o (via ps3ita.it/cfw-ofw/cfw-ps3ita-4-41-dex-rev4/):

Download: CFW PS3ITA 4.41 DEX rev4 (Password: camparisoda)
MD5: d71a5b5ec3e786a2250da7fd87139d59

CFW 4.41 DEX PS3ITA REV4

  • Removed ecdsa check from appldr, isoldr, lv1ldr and lv2ldr.
  • Patched lv1 to added support to lv1 peek, lv1 poke and remove syscon hash check.
  • Patched lv2 to added lv2 peek, lv2 poke, lv1 peek, lv1 poke and lv1 call.
  • Patched sys_init_osd to to allow execution of a self when the PS3 starts. Thanks to Miralatijera for this!
  • Added CORE ps3itald, this allow to change the console id or set it as retail when PS3 starts (You do NOT need to use Change IDPS All Region or similar to sign up on PSN).
  • Added Spoof 4.46.
  • Patched VSH to added ReactPSN support.
  • Patched nas_plugin to allow installation of PKG Retail.
  • Patched autodownload_plugin and download_plugin to allow installation of games update.
  • Patched UPL.xml to allow installation of CFW on PS3 with broken blu-ray drive and broken bluetooth board.
  • Added Playstation Store and Playstation Home icon.
  • The CFW can run every game with fw version set to 4.41 or lower (no sprx, self patching is necessary).
  • The CFW can be installed from the XMB over OFW 3.55 and each CFW DEX with spkg check patched.

Use PS3ITA Manager 1.30 to change the console id..

1) Run Ps3ita manager
2) Press START to enter in "Global Options"
3) Select "Network Tools"
4) Select "Set new console id"
5) Enter your console id and to the question "Do you want CORE (ps3itald.self) automatically set this console id when you boot PS3?" reply with YES

Now the console id inserted is automatically set at boot of console (No need start PS3ITA Manager again)

Backup original nor_dump you do not lose it, if you want to make changes from CEX to DEX, as this was the name for dex_FLASH.EID0.NORBIN.

If you want to go back to the console original then you just repeat the name of your original nor_dump like this cex_FLASH.EID0.NORBIN and insert it into the root of your USB can do with rebug_tool_manager or OS on multiman.

I am sure you can do it...

make sure that eEID is in your usb00 device then redo it.
