143w 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.

Download: PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.21 / PS3 DEX 4.21 VSH Dump by tjhooker73 / PS3 DEX 4.21 VSH.self to VSH.elf Decrypted by itskamel / PS3 LV1 4.21 DEX & LV1 4.31 CEX by Rancid-o

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.

Fix voice and sub English Dishonored Bles version

1. Prepare files from BLES01675 (IMSOMNI Release) and BLJM60520 (Caravan Release) (Here are the required files from Japanese release, so that you dont need to download the whole thing-

https://rapidshare.com/files/3578148212/COOKEDPS3.rar
https://rapidshare.com/files/1679531447/COALESCED_INT.BIN
https://rapidshare.com/files/2192160068/COALESCED_INT_FULL.BIN

The first link above contains all the BK_XXXXXX.INT files from the Japanese release, which are required in step 2 below

2. On BLJM60520 game folder check the files with name BK_XXXXXXX.INT (Example BK_00AB4E1847DBF1E858701F89725B6303.INT)
Copy all that files(Only with the name "BK_XXXXXXXX.INT", there's hundreds of them) to "BLES01675/P-S-3_GAME/USRDIR/DISHONOREDGAME/COOKEDPS3/"

3. Also copy COALESCED_INT_FULL.BIN and COALESCED_INT.BIN from the Japanese version and put in the COOKEDPS3 folder of Insomni release (replacing original COALESCED_INT.BIN).

4. Download this PS3TOC.TXT files:

http://www.mediafire.com/view/?0hk372scfui5b8n

5. Replace PS3TOC.TXT files on "BLES01675/P-S-3_GAME/USRDIR/DISHONOREDGAME/" with PS3TOC.TXT you download from above link.
6. On "BLES01675/P-S-3_GAME/USRDIR/DISHONOREDGAME/COOKEDPS3/" there's two files "COOKEDLANGUAGES" and "DEFAULTLANGUAGE", open that two files with HEX Editor/Notepad and change FRA to INT on each files. Save.
7. Build the image PS3 game disc by using BLES01675 game folder.
8. Finish. And before boot/play the game, make sure you delete Dishonored Game Data first.

Yeah in the end it did work. The game is in English now. But the characters don't talk. There are no voices in the game. All of the other sounds work (music etc.)

So i tried but with no success. Here are some useful things to note:

  • First tried all the reactpsn 2.20 methods, but i didn't manage to activate psn titles whatsoever. So, next i tried by manually patching the .vsh (which previously worked as a final solution on my 3.55 cex) and then using reactpsn 2.0 with previously activated exdata folders, with no success.
  • To activate write on flash YOU MUST USE Multiman CEX version. The DEX version doesn't allow you to mount flash and freezes your ps3.
  • And NEVER use a 3.55 CEX (retail) .vsh file for it will semibrick your ps3. I tried with all the DEX (debug) ones that i know of and a custom one to no avail. Maybe it could work 100% if we had a specific .vsh made for this 3.55 dex. It is rather weird why Rogero hasn't tried to implement it yet.

The psn games managed to go as far as the classic XXXXXXXX error screen after 5-10 seconds. And you can most likely kiss DLC goodbye (Unless someone confirms that it runs with PS3GEN images). Dunno if it's because of QA flagging, Console Model or else but i had everything working fine before changing to DEX. I also tried with a lot of debug settings but kept getting the same errors.

I read that there's this failproof method that consists of making your own DEX.PUP using MFW BUILDER with this task: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/63377561/MFW/dex_mod.tcl, so any takers are welcome.

Can someone help me out? I just converted my CEX to DEX4.20. Can somebody tell me, step by step, how I get games like The Amazing Spiderman and Sleeping Dogs to work. I have installed the latest multiman and have PS3GEN on my laptop.
