Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 Update Surfaces


Sponsored Links
134w ago - Following up on the PS3 Debug Firmware 4.20 and PS3 Test Firmware 1.01 & 1.02 updates, this weekend an anonymous user on the PlayStation 3 Developer Wiki has shared the Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 update for collectors.

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)

To quote: File changes compared to 4.20 - These files have changed since the previous version e.g. by new version string, bug/crash/exploit fixes, ...

Finally, in related news below is a PS3 Restore Utility Backup / Restore DEX Console Guide (via ps3ita.it/hack/ripristino-utilita-di-backuprestoresu-console-dex-by-ps3ita/):

After making the conversion of the PS3 console from retail (CEX) in debug (DEX), some may have noticed the lack of utility of backup / restore (accessible from Settings -> System Settings -> Backup Utility) that allowed you to save all content (accounts, photos, music, games, etc. with the exception of trophies) on external media to back recovery in case of failure / change of the internal hard disk.

Therefore PS3ITA, thanks to our mythical Rancid-o, provides a simple method to restore such function by means of easily installable file pkg.

We found a way to restore Backup Utility in DEX:

Just install and start this pkg: http://uploading.com/files/get/5dd48caa/Restore_backup_utility.pkg

There is also a pkg for uninstall: http://uploading.com/files/get/c7ff884f/Uninstall_backup_utility.pkg

This is because if the option backup utility does not uninstall many options are not displayed in "debug settings". Oh I forgot has only been tested on cfw 3.55 DEX.

its easy enough to convert a 3.55 ps3 to dex. but unless your actually gonna use the dex stuff, its a waste of a 3.55 ps3 (could be running 4.30cfw when its released) its a lot harder to go from dex to cex than it is to go other way round.

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 !
