174w ago - Following up on the previous PlayStation 3 Debug Firmware updates from last week, today Frodo The Hobbit reports that PS3 Debug / Test Firmware version 4.01 has now been leaked as well.

Download: PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 4.01 / Dev_Flash CoreOS Unpack 4.01 Dex / PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 4.01 (Mirror: SCEA / SC3APR)

To quote, roughly translated: "Very soon after its released version 4.00 debug Sony decides to release a Firmware 4.01 for stamped its consoles Test / Debug. We remind you that this type of firmware is not installed on the consoles so-called "Retail" we just buy in the store.

No changelog available at this time. See us before long a 4.01 in our living room, only time will tell. The file is available for download if you want to update your console to Test / Debug."

As always, 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 news cotojestwtf has made available a Pendrive SWAP Mod + Way to Backups PS1/PS2 and PS3 on Debug Unit guide for those interested as follows:

Download: SWAPMOD for PS3 Debug / Test Consoles / SWAPMOD for PS3 Debug / Test Consoles (Mirror)

I decided to share my work. Let's started.. Pendrive SWAP Mod it's like .tiff exploit. It hangs a system when you run a game, then u can swap a PS1/PS2 Game on Retail. But on Debug Unit PS3 Game recorded to BR!

Intructions to run a PS1/PS2 Backup RETAIL/DEBUG CONSOLE ONLY:

1. Format your pendrive to fat32.
2. Run SWAPMOD.exe and install it to your pendrive.
3. Run the PlayStation 3.
4. Insert original CD/DVD PS1/PS2*.
5. Insert pendrive to PS3 USB.
6. Go to category photos on PS3.
7. Get in on visible device (your pendrive).
8. Wait a one minute on that, or long.
9. Run the original game from XMB, system will hang on your wallpaper. (BlackScreen = fail, repeat the operations)
10. Slide the original game and insert a pirate/backup game.
- if you running PS2 game, insert backup/pirate game from PS2.
- if you running PS1 game, insert backup/pirate game from PS1.
11. Remove a pendrive.
12. Now if you swapped a discs, PS3 will run the backup/pirate game.

*You can run PS2 games if your Unit have a compatible. Exploit still works on OFW 4.00

Intructions to run a PS3 Backup DEBUG CONSOLE ONLY:

1. Go to Debug Seetings
2. Search a NPDRM Debug option - set No Entitlement (80029513)
3. So now u just must do same things, they are listed above. But you swpp now a original PS3 game with pirate/backup game.

Note: BACKUP GAMES FOR PS3 MUST BE RECORDED ON BLURAY DISC.! OR IT WONT WORK

Tested on OFW Debug 4.01


Sony PS3 Debug / Test Firmware 4.01 is Leaked, Now Available

Whenever I try to update to (4.25) I get: An error has occured (8002F827)

I already tried the mirror, gives the same message. Can anyone help me out?

I am on 4.21 DEX right now and wanted to update to 4.25 DEX. I already tried to update from 3.50 and 4.20. Also didn't work

Thanks for that tip, luckily both ps3s already on multiman 04.11.11

I ain't got round to installing it yet. i aint actually turned any of my ps3s on all day. been more interested in seeing if many bans happen over the next 24 hours. (bought a mini model helicopter and i've been playing really i'm only 40)

Also below is a Black Ops 2 - BLES01717 DEX fix 1.02 from beanbaggins stating the following:

I won't try the new DEX CFW yet so I can't confirm that this works online, but it should. I have tested Campaign mode and Zombies first level, and both are working fine on my end.

Also here is a Hitman Absolution Dex patch, tested and working from kittoo:

I somewhat agree, but I think the next big thing would be that hard to find exploit for the higher ofw users

Well, I'm stupid - I thought it had something to do with Vita. Otherwise this really isn't too exciting. I guess we've already gotten the "next big thing" anyways.

Hi Guys,

Ca someone put that sentence into other words : "IMPORTANT: If you are on ofw debug than 4.21 (type 4.25) must strictly pass before the fw Downgrader DEX"

I don't get it ? Thx for you Help

i don't need the change idps really cos its never going to be connected to internet. most its gonna get is connected to a pc through a router. and il make sure that router has no net access.

i've no idea why i struggle with those ilivid sites, but after the 6th attempt it gave me the right file finally.. always best to have it anyway

When the Change_IDPS is functioning properly, the LED will switch on the console from the usual green color to YELLOW

that sounds scarey, i really don't like my ps3 having yellow lights.
