July 9, 2013 // 4:04 am - Following up on the previous Sony PS3 Debug / Test leak, today the PlayStation 3 DEX Firmware 4.41 PUP has surfaced via Akela with details below.

Download: Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.41 Update / Sony PS3 Debug / Test (DEX) Firmware 4.41 Update (Mirror)

MD5 Hash: 62ac9ddd2659678e064ceb767dc9a729

As previously reported, those with converted PS3 consoles should hold off installing this update as it will brick your system.

From the included Readme_DECH-441_001_e.txt file:

From haxxxen on how to manually add an RSOD bypass to any PS3 CFW:

If you decrypt the 4.x basic_plugins.sprx, just search for: 409E002048000010 and replace with: 4800002048000010

This is based on rogero's 4.x bypass patch and i have only searched for it to patch it myself to lower 4.x cfws. I dunno if it is related to rsod, but he also added some trophy patch. I am using both of them

To patch np_trophy_util.sprx based on rogero, just search for: 419E00887B5E0020 and replace with: 480000887B5E0020

Finally, from Sony PS3 hacker cyberskunk: It is legit.. MD5 matches the one we got about a month ago.. REX has been 'almost' ready for that long to but I have been very busy with other non-PS3 things. Wont be long though..

Spoofers/Update Packages for 421-441 CEX/DEX/REX were finished earlier today but have not had a chance to get around to releasing them yet

It's coming.. I have been really busy but as I type this the build that I hope to be the final for this release is installing now..

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:

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:, 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 ( 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):

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.
