Yes, but I did not test it yet. Im on RogeroV2-Dex-3.55.

Next week I try the unofficial Rebug DEX with ProDG & Target Manager

erm, maybe some stupid idea but what about cell reset line and debug?

mathieulh himself said it works on debug and maybe with target manager/debugger to dump the memory.

on this you would need no exception to my understanding

1) Convert to DEX & update to 4.2x , so u can start all games (with DEX-game-patch)
2) Get a Hardware to dump the RAM while game is launching
--2*) If no Hardware to dump available, u need to create a "triggerable" crash & activate CORE DUMP in Debug Settings
3) Extract the decrypted EBOOT.ELF from dump
4) Resign with 3.55keys & make the pkg
5) "Update" to 3.55 DEX-CFW (i.e. RogeroV2-DEX)
6) Test it, Confirm it, Upload it, share it
