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 !

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.)

yeah but you need Japan version:

I make this short tutorials, I hope this explain everything and will work to anyone:

1. Prepare files from BLES01675 (IMSOMNI Release) and BLJM60520 (Caravan Release)
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. Download this PS3TOC.TXT files:

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

4. Replace PS3TOC.TXT files on "BLES01675/P-S-3_GAME/USRDIR/DISHONOREDGAME/" with PS3TOC.TXT you download from above link.
5. 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.
6. Build the image PS3 game disc by using BLES01675 game folder.
7. Finish. And before boot/play the game, make sure you delete Dishonored Game Data first.

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.

DEX 4.21-3.55 downgrade 100% successful by using the downgrader (ps3devwiki.com/files/firmware/OFW-DEX/3.55downgrader/PS3UPDAT.PUP) on a first launch NOR model, and then reflashing with exceedy's 3.55 dex.

No brick risk whatsoever by updating through storage media (usb thumbdrive). I kinda risked my balls by flashing twice since my power source has been failing as of lately and i don't have an e3 nor progskeet.

Now gonna make tests of ReactPSN 2.22 functionality with exceedy's 3.55 dex (which is supposedly vsh patched): http://www.mediafire.com/?gh930p4odjrmoea

I need more brave souls to do some manual .vsh patching while on 3.55 dex to see if that works too without risks. Wait for some feedback.
