    An anonymous source sent me a method to running 3.6+ backups on a Dex machine

    You will need these files.

    • ps3gen.zip
    • psn_package_npdrm.rar
    • PS3 Game Updater 1.41.rar
    • PkgView_1.3.rar

     

    Preparing the usb hdd:
    0. Connect an external usb disc
    1. Go to debug settings on your dex
    2. BD Access select "BD Emulator (USB)"
    3. transfer rate option select "HDD Native"
    4. "Format BD Emulator HDD"
    Preparing the update:
    1. First use PS3 Game Updater to get the newest Update pkg for the game
    2. Then fire up Pkg View and extract the BCUS98295 dir into any dir -lets just call it targetdir.
    3. Extract psn_package_npdrm.exe into this dir
    4. Create a .txt into this dir and fill it with:
    Content-ID = EP0001-BCUS98295_00-0000111122223333
    K_licensee = 0x00000000000000000000000000000000
    DRM_Type = Free
    Content_Type = GameData
    PackageType = DiscGamePatch
    PackageVersion = 01.21
    Rename the .txt file "package.conf".
    Where BCUS98295 is the Title ID of your game and Packageversion has to be the Number of the Patch you downloaded
    5. run it via cmd with psn_package_npdrm.exe package.conf BCUS98295
    -> this will create a new update pkg for your game -> put on usb stick an install on DEX 3.55 ( don't know if you can also install it later )
    Preparing the BD Emu Disc:
    0. connect external usb with your pc
    1. Fire up psgen.exe
    2. fill in the title id: bcus.. put disc version to 00.00, copyright holder = sce, producer name = sce, tick trophy, click setup game
    3. file -> import -> load up the param.sfo, click tab content information files and drag and drop the files from ps_game without the directories -&gt
    ; remove files that get a grey background -> click ok
    4. click tab directory and file the structure with your backed up files
    5. click build
    6. click for bd emulator hdd tab and select the partition u want to use

    The anon source told me that MLS 2012 works with this method….

    Note that files with .edat update does not work with this method yet.

      I updated my ps3 a while ago but I hope this works just to kill True Blue. Run most 3.6+ backups and don't need to rely on pos hackers putting out patches for stuff they don't own.

      So does this mean I can use multiman to backup newer games like Batman Arkham City and play it on a Dex system? And if I convert to a Dex system, am I able to go back to a Cex system?

      Nice, finally I'm able to play some of the games I bought, such as MGS HD, but which I have been unable to play <.<
      If... It has a patch out.


      Considering the method, it seems that only games that have had a game patch released, can be played on 3.55 DEX, maybe it should be mentioned? - Unless I am wrong.

      I have one question. Can we be able to use all of debug options? I mean all of them would work? I think I will need HDCP to turn off. Do You think that this can solve problems with handshake connecting via HDMI? And this can solve problems of people who have monitors that don't have hdcp?

      Apparently HDCP isnt a (working) option on DEX, so it wont make a difference to you.

      I see this method supposedly runs backups is pretty much equal to what has been explained by developers, but since I do not have a DEX some questions linger.

      Has anyone gotten this to work?

      It mentions to use DEX 3.55. Has anyone tried > 3.55 DEX to see if > 3.55 backups work (in theory they shouldn't, but I cross my fingers).

      It also mentions game partitions on the USB HDD. Is there a limit to the number of partitions the PS3 creates?

      This was the method I used

      Got it to work with MLB12: The Show with newest update 1.21

      I am running DEX 4.11 so no problem

      Hi Jenny, Jonas here(22/m/fit just in case you wanted to know my age/sex/shape), nice to meet you. From the states or EU?

      I have heard multiple times, but have not tried it myself that it creates (up to?) 4 partitions, so a max of 4 games can be on the proprietary formatted HDD for BD-emulation.

      Why shouldn't it work? Its a .pkg created from Sony's tools, and its a DEX firmware which allows the installation of those said pkg's. Only limitation I see, is that a patch has to have been released.
      Unless Sony has taken specific safeguards against this, I cannot see why it should not work on 3.56+ games. And since this has recently become public, I find the changes scarce that they have.
      Of course, afaik, they did change alot in the firmware after 3.56, so it might be that it won't, but the changes are good.

      Has been the first DEX I found above 4.01 to play an 4.01 game and we won't have access to PSN anyway on 4.21 right now. I think highest public DEX is 4.20? and it will just work fine too

      FWIW, if anyone wants to test whether their game has had a patch released, Title IDs are listed on the PS3 Compability List. It will be needed in most cases, to see if their is a patch on the update servers.

      Thank you for the reply. According to an online database MLB 12 The Show requires 4.01 firmware. Pretty nifty.

      The method mentions using an update patch in it's process. I wonder if this is required for all games therefor rendering games without a patch unplayable?

      I doubt it. It seems it takes the whole harddisk(the first bytes = the partition table also) and makes four designated partitions for you. It probably needs to change the layout of the partition tables on the harddisk as well... So its completely proprietary and won't accept MBR, GUID Partition Table, or similar partioning scheme you were thinking of partitioning the HDD with.

      What I just hope, is that this proprietary partioning format will be uncovered, so we perhaps could format it to allow more than 4 games

      as i said before, partitoning any HDD with data on it will corrupt this data because of the new partition. had to make this experience on my own with my ext. hdd with many backups on it
      only possible method would be to copy your data somewhere else, partition the HDD and put the data back on it

      Anyway.... I checked Sony's game update servers, for which games that are in my interest that have had patches released... If any of you, have the same game taste as me this might be relevant to you (the same game taste is mainly platformers... I miss the banjo kazooie days.. Should buy a wii for zelda and mario, and 360 for banjo kazooie,tooie,threeie..), so you know if you should hurry out ASAP and buy the game, since you can play it now. Or, if you should feel down a little more, for now at least.

      The games I checked are:
      Ratchet & Clank HD Collection(BCES01503): Failed...

      Ratchet & Clank All 4 One(BCES01141): Patch exists.

      Jak & Daxter HD Collection(BCUS98281): Failed...

      Rayman Origins(BLUS30836): Failed...

      Skylanders Spyro's Adventure(BLES01272): Failed.

      Skyrim: Patch is out (both for BLUS30778 and BLES01330)

      Twisted Metal: Patch is out (both for BCES01010 and BCUS98106)

      Metal Gear HD: Patch is out (both for BLUS30847 and BLES01419)

      Same here. Installing otherOS++ just so I can flash my NOR dump is a little painful. Hope we get an even more improved solution. After all, good things come at a price. Oh, and I hope someone makes a video tutorial as well.

      Sounds odd(or well, it is odd since), you can always add a partition to an already partitioned harddisk. No problem, if you keep the same partitioning scheme system (MBR, GUID Partition table, ...). You dont have to format or lose the data of the already existing partitions if you add partitions. The only rule is that you must have free space on the harddisk(And I am not talking about free space in a partition), and with that I mean unallocated space, not taken by any partition. You can always convert that into a partition.

      Keep in mind that if you have no unallocated space, you can also always (although its alot harder/unadvised to do with the boot partition), shrink an existing partition(if it has any free space, else you ofc cant shrink it), so you can make a new partition out of the now unallocated space.

      The only rule here is that if you shrink two partitions, you cannot (without making some changes on the hdd) make one big partition out of that, as the unallocated space needs to be sequential.

      Its easier to illustrate.
      We disregard the facts that harddisks is actually made up of platters, which are segmented into tracks and cylinders. We just say that a harddisk is one big sequential line that can store data.

      Data from partition 1 is illustrated as a:
      Data from partition 2 is illustrated as a
      unallocated space is a:

      If your hdd looks like this:
      []
      Then no, you cannot add any further partitions, as there is no free space.
      However, if only half the partition is full, you can shrink it:
      []
      and then make another partition from that free space:
      [

      Only thing you cannot do, is if your harddisk looked like this(for instance after you have shrinked two partitions):
      []
      Then make the unallocated space(the question marks (>,<)), into one partition, as the partions needs to be sequential logically on the harddisk. You could move the second partition up next to the first with some trouble, or you could delete the second partition (that wouldn't affect the first) and then make 1,2 or 3 partitions out of the now free space.

      Yeah resizeing the external HDD is a good idea with pc,but the ps3gen.exe or what tool it was which creates partitions would not accept it ,or?
      Because the tool needs partitions which are made by itself.

      ok u got 1 hdd with 1 partion and it see it as 1 partion ps3gen formates it so its able use it

      but if if u got 2 partion of a hdd why wouldnt it reconize it got 2 partions and use ps3gen to formate 1 of the partion

      i guess it would reconize what ever the partion is made with before ps3 gen other wize u wouldnt be able to use ps3gen to formate it in the 1st place

      mummy listen

      Preparing the usb hdd:

      0. Connect an external usb disc
      1. Go to debug settings on your dex
      2. BD Access select "BD Emulator (USB)"
      3. transfer rate option select "HDD Native"
      4. "Format BD Emulator HDD"
      Lets say I did create a 2nd partition. 1TB (500GB fat32 ; 500GB ex3 for BD emulator) with PC --->DONE!

      A)I go to the living room where my ps3 is and plug in my external HDD.
      Now if I do step 4 from the Tutorial, I dont think the Ps3 will ask me which partition I would like to get formated , or does it?

      If not then its risky that I could all my saved data on the ext HDD

      B)Maybe I could skip step 4 and do the rest.
      Would it work?

      understand?

      EDIT:
      so what IF ps3 gen could reconzie 2 partion just like it would if u had 1 partion
      Thats the thing which I am afraid of.

      I dont have any other HDD.
      But I will now try this process with a 4GB USB Stick and will create a 2nd partition and will format it with ps3gen.exe to know if the tool asks me which partition I would like to get formatted.

      Thanks for your help and suggestions and also to others who tried to help.

      Now back to topic. We shouldnt spam the thread with my HDD drama.

      do u get what i mean ?
      I'm not entirely sure that I get it sorry, but as far as I have understood ps3gen, it makes 4 partitions for you.

      You cant have 2 partitions, and then one of the partitions would be subpartiotioned into 4 subpartitions. Or well that is not how the ps3gen tool works, and it can't be easily altered, since the DEX firmware has some expectations as to what the harddisk would look like after the ps3gen tool.
      It would not expect that it would have to look at all of the harddisk's different partitions first bytes, to find the partition description tables for any(or perhaps a fixed 4) partition(s) within a single partition.

      What I hope is that it does not care about the amount of partitions at all. I hope what it does is that it just looks at the bootsector (the first bytes of the harddisk) where the partition descriptor tables are, and then look at each of the different partitions on the harddisk, whether they contain a data structure (likely created with ps3gen) suitable for the BD emulation. If that is the case, then if the limit of the 4 partitions created by ps3gen could be altered, we could have more games on the ext. HDD. However... It is a bit odd that they have made that limit of 4 partitions.


      So, in short, ps3gen does not work on the individual partitions. It works on the harddisk and partitions the harddisk itself (thus overriding the old partition table that described your previous partitions, with its new table that describes the 4 partitions that the BD emulator can use). , it does not partition a partition on the harddisk.

      i guess it would reconize what ever the partion is made with before ps3 gen other wize u wouldnt be able to use ps3gen to formate it in the 1st place
      It wouldn't need to recognize what the partitioning scheme was before it partitions the harddisks. It makes no difference to it as it just overwrites them, regardless of what the prior content was, so it doesn't care. It probably doesn't even look at the prior partitioning scheme.
      (Or well.. It doesn't override the partitions itself, it overrides the partition descriptor tables on the start of the harddisk that refers to the hardisk with its own PDTs, so when the harddisk is accessed by the OS, it sees no reference to the old partitions only the new partitions created by it.. So, the data from the old partitions is still there, until they are overwritten by whatever data/games that fills the partitions Which is why formatting or deleting a file, isn't enough if police comes knocking on your door (if a file is deleted, it likewise just deletes the file descriptor ))

      I don't hope you take this offensive btw. I have no intentions of doing so. You are one of the guys in here, I consider my bro-knight.
      Although, you have given me the perception that you drink heavily.

      CEX to DEX (translated from Italian site) :

      I decided to simplify the original guide (which you can find it here) as new tools have emerged.

      Requirements:
      1) A PS3 with Firmware 3:55 or less (if less than you should upgrade to 3.55), you must install this CFW using Recovery Mode : [url=http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/cfw/CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.PUP] : http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/cfw/CFW355...S++-SPECIAL.PUP

      2) A USB keyboard and mouse;

      3) Red Ribbon Linux on your PS3, you should download and burn this ISO : http://garr.dl.sourceforge.net/proje...ribbon_rc5.rar
      4) CEX2DEX, downloadable from here : http://puu.sh/IY92

      5) metldrpwn, downloadable from here : http://ps3devwiki.com/files/devtools/dump-...r/metldrpwn.zip

      6) (Optional) although unlikely, is possible brick, so I recommend you have E3 flasher.


      Installing Linux:


      PKG download these:
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/setup...for_otheros.pkg
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs...ll_otheros.pkg
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/boot_otheros.pkg
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/reboot.pkg

      And download one of these two files (if you have a NOR take the first, if you have a second NAND).
      1. dtbImage.ps3.bin (NOR) : http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/peti...bImage.ps3.bin

      2. dtbImage.ps3.bin.minimal (NAND, to be renamed in dtbImage.ps3.bin) : http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/petitboot/...ps3.bin.minimal

      Put everything in the root of a USB device and install the PKG.
      Each application you start before returning to the XMB will make 3 beeps the console, if you do not hear these 3 beeps try again.
      1. Run "Setup for OtherOS FLASH", turn the console back to the XMB and restart.
      2. Start the "Install OtherOS" (the key with the file dtbImage.ps3.bin must be inserted).

      Now connect a USB keyboard and a USB to the console and launched from the XMB "OtherOS Boot" and "Reboot". You'll find yourself in "Petitboot".
      Using the keyboard, select "Exit to shell" and press enter.
      Type the following commands:

      Code:
      mount -n -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1
      Codice:
      dd if=/dev/ps3nflasha of=/tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1/flashCEX.bin bs=1024
      Now you dump your NOR / NAND USB stick. Turn off the console (ctrl + alt + delete or power button).

      Now insert the stick into your PC and extract the folder "metldrpwn" from the "metldrpwn.zip" in the root of the USB stick.
      CEX2DEX Start, select your dump and click "Extract metldr", save the file as "metldr" folder "metldrpwn" on your USB stick.

      Go back to your PS3, plug in the USB key and the CD with the iso burned previously. From the XMB start again "OtherOS Boot" and "Reboot".
      This time from Petitboot selected "Red Ribbon OTHEROS live" and wait for the upload.
      If you do not have a USB hub you unplug the keyboard and mouse to attack, click the first icon in the upper left -> Accessories -> Terminal. Reconnect the keyboard.

      Type the following commands in Terminal:

      Code:
      sudo umount /dev/sda1
      sudo mkdir usb
      sudo mount /dev/sda1 usb
      cd usb/metldrpwn/
      sudo make
      sudo sh run.sh

      Will appear written, if all goes well you should read it somewhere "problem status (0x00000089)".

      Type the following commands:

      Code:
      cd ..
      sudo cp /proc/metldrpwn/dump usb/dump
      sudo shutdown -h now

      The system will shut down.
      Go back to your PC and start CEX2DEX, select new dump your flash and the file "dump" that will be on your USB stick, click CEX-> DEX, now you save a file, name it "flashDEX.bin" and save it in the root USB stick.



      Return to the PS3, connect the USB stick and remove the CD.
      Start again "OtherOS Boot" and "Reboot" on Petitboot select "Exit to shell"



      Type the following commands:

      Code:
      mount -n -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1
      WARNING : The following command will write the changes on your flash (NOR / NAND) and if you did something wrong you could brick. I do not take responsibility.

      Code:
      dd if=/tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1/flashDEX.bin of=/dev/ps3nflasha bs=1024
      Now download a firmware from here DEX : http://ps3devwiki.com/files/firmware/OFW-DEX/

      and place it in X: \ PS3 \ UPDATE \ PS3UPDAT.PUP (X: is your USB stick) :

      Turn on the console in recovery mode and select system update. Now you have a Debugging Station.

      It has nothing to do with your guide. As it was written by someone else who has no link with your site. Hence your guide was out before but nothing was taken in account with.

      If it was the same as your tutorial i would source you and be very angry at the anon source, but it is not the same as your tutorial, it perhaps has elements that are similar to yours, but it is not the same.

      I would however be happy to front page your method too.

      Can you install the DEX firmware over a Rebug install... A reinstall of OFW isn't covered in the tut.

      Also if the data on the ps3 is lots on a NAND machine like when downgrading ?
      Cheers for any help.

      The DEX PS3 will erase your current USB HDD and put it's own partitions on it. There is currently no method to utilize the extra space left over. This means that you will need to have the USB HDD for only your DEX PS3 and nothing else. This is the way the DEX currently works.

      DEX from a 4.11 OFW console needs to be downgraded via flasher to 3.55 then linux then 3.55DEX then 4.11 DEX, But the IF is whether the console can be downgraded to 3.55 via a flasher in the first place... it all depends on if you got the PS3 new with 3.55 OFW or lower then upgraded... but if you got the ps3 with 3.56 or higher then what ever firmware it came with is the lowest it can go.

      It should due to the fact Mass Storage Devices (as Windows call them) work with a certain set of protocols which is why you can use a flash drive just as you would a HDD on most current hardware supporting the protocols including the PS3's OFW. It should not be able to tell the difference. However, I have not personally tested this.

      its not called Factory Service Mode, its called recovery mode.
      Factory Service Mode and recovery mode are 2 different things.

      Wait, I don't get it ...
      Are you able to play all games to 4.11? Even back-ups?
      I understand that multiman won't work. So I would have to forget about back-ups.

      you can flash between cexflash.bin and dexflash.bin (Kmeaw - 3.55 DEX ) without problem .. you can also just rewrite your EID instead of flashing the whole nor ..

      doesnt format the hdd ..

      for 4.11dex - 3.55 dex just use downgrader.PUP

      Would it be possible for the DEX firmware to look at the internal HDD instead of a external USB? I know it formats the internal drive, but if we could somehow point it towards a partition the internal drive we could bypass the mandatory 4 partition on external HDD format and use the internal drive as it is used on 3.55 CFW.

      Also, if multiman (or any other .pkg) could bypass the "install patch to run backups" requirement, I'm sure DEX conversion would become a VERY attractive proposition.

      Yo Jenny
      How goes?

      On topic:
      IF it partitions the target USB into 4 partitions, which I am pretty sure by now it does, AND as the italian guide linked a couple of times here(which I google translated... wish my luck google translate didnt trick me) states, the partitions needs to have their size chosen beforehand, which can be either: 4,7 GB or 8,3 GB or 25 GB or 50 GB, then you need one pretty big USB flash drive...

      You should read the topic.. If you have, I am most sorry. How do you intend to run the x86 binary ps3gen.exe on the ps3?
      AND as has been mentioned in the thread/topic(which was why I started doubting if you have read it, again sorry if you have), it does not format a partition. It formats(partitions really) the whole harddisk so you cant have a designated partition on an existing harddisk, and tell it to operate on just that. And it only makes it harder that the partitioning/formatting the ps3gen tool does is to a proprietary format, so we know **** about doing it ourselves. ;/

      It especially makes it harder, using the internal drive on the newer PS3s (the NOR ones) that stores some of the firmware on the HDD.

      Idd, if the patch thing could be avoided, ALOT more could be played. Jak and Daxter HD Collection, Ratchet Clank HD Collection, Rayman, spyro, most platformers didnt have patches.
      This is still an incredible nice advancement though! ...And the MGS HD Collection did have a patch, ye-hey!

      I read in anearlier post in another thread (by [MENTION=231976]lordv[/MENTION] I think) that 'fake' patches can be made for games that don't have a official Sony patch. Don't know if it's true though but everything he has mentioned so far regarding DEX and backups is true.

      If that is true, I will have lordv tatooed on my chest. Not that I disbelieve him, but because, if it is true, I would idolize him.

      Yea I read all of [MENTION=231976]lordv[/MENTION] 's other posts. I liked them. He was being very helpful with claryfying how this could be utilized for the end user, and he was (by _far_) the first I saw mentioning anything, about running backups via BD-Emu on DEX PS3's, and yea, as you say he was right about it all. Sadly I didn't see that post he might have made about making a fake patch for those games without one official, but on the other hand, it is more than most likely that I havent seen all of his posts, as that thread got far long after some time.

      Btw, actually I also saw him making his own thread, describing the method in this thread days ago. It was in a more rough draft shape than this, but it was still possible to understand.

      If you are on DEX 4.11, you can downgrade without hardware flasher. DEX allows you to go up and down in the firmwares like a bicyclepump baby! ofc, remember not to pull too far out in the bicyclepump or you will break it. You cannot go lower than the factory firmware version.

      Yuppie yup! AND, if you don't know if there is a patch out for it, here is a trick so that you can know:

      (perhaps this would be smart to add to the first page, so that people could find out themselves, if there was a patch out for the game they are thinking on?)

      First,
      You find out the title ID of your game(alot of title IDs are on the "ps3 compability list".. <-- google that without quotes), for instance BCES01503 (Ratchet and Clank HD collection) and BCES01010 (Twisted Metal)

      Second,
      you insert them in this string:
      https://a0.ww.np.dl.playstation.net/tpl/np/<DucksAreGreat>/<DucksAreGreat>-ver.xml

      Substituting <DucksAreGreat> with the titleid,

      so R&C HD Collection ends up looking like this:
      https://a0.ww.np.dl.playstation.net/...S01503-ver.xml

      and Twisted metal ends up looking like this:
      https://a0.ww.np.dl.playstation.net/...S01010-ver.xml

      Third,
      If there is a result(meaning a page with XML text shows), you are in luck a patch it out, if not you are not, yet.

      Note: Of course remember, as the first post also mentions that updates consisting of an .edat file, cannot yet be utilized this way.

      There are more links that can be used than just that one. Perhaps it would be wise, if you variate them, and use the other ones too. I don't know what could happen, but for the hell of it, safety first, as it can never hurt.

      The other links:

      http://b0.ww.prod-qa.dl.playstation.net/tppkg/prod-qa/<DucksAreGreat>/<DucksAreGreat>-ver.xml (Alternate Server #2 for Retail)

      Those links was not anyone I had on my computer, I just quickly found them from a Google search, on a site that must not be mentioned here.

I have retardized the link(and added a space you will have to remove yourself), so it wont get ambushed in the filter:

      Yea, indeed, looked into that quickly (have never used the program beforehand), but it seemed that the way ps3update finder worked, was that it checks what games you already have on your pc, and optionally lets you update them before you move them to your pc. Given that most people probably havent bought the game yet and they are expensive (and fills alot of GB.. depending on how you acquire your games), I thought it wasn't a viable method.

      But hey, after you mentioned it, I tried looking into it again, and there actually was a webapp version of it, where it does not work that way. You just input your Title ID and it checks for you. Thanks alot [MENTION=51782]carldenning[/MENTION]

      The webapp version was made by yifanly over at psx scene. He looked at the source of it and ported it to a web app. All credits to him for that and to nzhawk, for making the original ps3 update finder.

      "to play this game, you must insert the following disc. Insert the disc, and then start the game again. (8001003E) Install disc"

      If so check if you don t have disc.sfo, if so remove this disc.sfo

      I ran into a video output error while trying to load a BLUS batman AC on a pal machine. To fix this load up the games .sfo in sfoeditor and check all the video output setting boxes ie: 1080/720 etc. Do this before loading the .sfo in ps3gen.

      Thought I would mention this for the other noobs like myself.

      You missed installing make.. and maybe the others as well.

      Ask yourself this: How did you compiled the kernel without it? You shouldn't skip this.

      Code:
      sudo -s
      apt-get update && apt-get install make gcc ncurses-dev

      The easiest solution for your exe problem is one of the following :-
      1. Office
      2. Friends
      3. Install Wine if youre on linux

      How could linux install stuff with apt-get without internet?
      Yes, if you would edit sources.list from /etc/apt/ and have a local repository of deb packages but really.. it's a lot simpler to just connect a cable on the back of your ps3
      This way you can also use ssh (putty) to connect to your ps3 linux and do all the stuff from your PC ( and have the ability to copy paste commands from tutorials )

      I decided to simplify the original guide (which you can find it here) as new tools have emerged.

      Requirements:
      1) A PS3 with Firmware 3:55 or less (if less than you should upgrade to 3.55), you must install this CFW using Recovery Mode : [url=http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/cfw/CFW355-OTHEROS++-SPECIAL.PUP] : http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/cfw/CFW355...S++-SPECIAL.PUP

      2) A USB keyboard and mouse;

      3) Red Ribbon Linux on your PS3, you should download and burn this ISO : http://garr.dl.sourceforge.net/proje...ribbon_rc5.rar
      4) CEX2DEX, downloadable from here : http://puu.sh/IY92

      5) metldrpwn, downloadable from here : http://ps3devwiki.com/files/devtools/dump-...r/metldrpwn.zip

      6) (Optional) although unlikely, is possible brick, so I recommend you have E3 flasher.


      Installing Linux:


      PKG download these:
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/setup...for_otheros.pkg
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs...ll_otheros.pkg
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/boot_otheros.pkg
      - http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/pkgs/reboot.pkg

      And download one of these two files (if you have a NOR take the first, if you have a second NAND).
      1. dtbImage.ps3.bin (NOR) : http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/peti...bImage.ps3.bin

      2. dtbImage.ps3.bin.minimal (NAND, to be renamed in dtbImage.ps3.bin) : http://gitbrew.org/~glevand/ps3/petitboot/...ps3.bin.minimal

      Put everything in the root of a USB device and install the PKG.
      Each application you start before returning to the XMB will make 3 beeps the console, if you do not hear these 3 beeps try again.
      1. Run "Setup for OtherOS FLASH", turn the console back to the XMB and restart.
      2. Start the "Install OtherOS" (the key with the file dtbImage.ps3.bin must be inserted).

      Now connect a USB keyboard and a USB to the console and launched from the XMB "OtherOS Boot" and "Reboot". You'll find yourself in "Petitboot".
      Using the keyboard, select "Exit to shell" and press enter.
      Type the following commands:

      Code:
      mount -n -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1
      Codice:
      dd if=/dev/ps3nflasha of=/tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1/flashCEX.bin bs=1024
      Now you dump your NOR / NAND USB stick. Turn off the console (ctrl + alt + delete or power button).

      Now insert the stick into your PC and extract the folder "metldrpwn" from the "metldrpwn.zip" in the root of the USB stick.
      CEX2DEX Start, select your dump and click "Extract metldr", save the file as "metldr" folder "metldrpwn" on your USB stick.

      Go back to your PS3, plug in the USB key and the CD with the iso burned previously. From the XMB start again "OtherOS Boot" and "Reboot".
      This time from Petitboot selected "Red Ribbon OTHEROS live" and wait for the upload.
      If you do not have a USB hub you unplug the keyboard and mouse to attack, click the first icon in the upper left -> Accessories -> Terminal. Reconnect the keyboard.

      Type the following commands in Terminal:

      Code:
      sudo umount /dev/sda1
      sudo mkdir usb
      sudo mount /dev/sda1 usb
      cd usb/metldrpwn/
      sudo make
      sudo sh run.sh

      Will appear written, if all goes well you should read it somewhere "problem status (0x00000089)".

      Type the following commands:

      Code:
      cd ..
      sudo cp /proc/metldrpwn/dump usb/dump
      sudo shutdown -h now

      The system will shut down.
      Go back to your PC and start CEX2DEX, select new dump your flash and the file "dump" that will be on your USB stick, click CEX-> DEX, now you save a file, name it "flashDEX.bin" and save it in the root USB stick.



      Return to the PS3, connect the USB stick and remove the CD.
      Start again "OtherOS Boot" and "Reboot" on Petitboot select "Exit to shell"



      Type the following commands:

      Code:
      mount -n -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1
      WARNING : The following command will write the changes on your flash (NOR / NAND) and if you did something wrong you could brick. I do not take responsibility.

      Code:
      dd if=/tmp/petitboot/mnt/sda1/flashDEX.bin of=/dev/ps3nflasha bs=1024
      Now download a firmware from here DEX : http://ps3devwiki.com/files/firmware/OFW-DEX/

      and place it in X: \ PS3 \ UPDATE \ PS3UPDAT.PUP (X: is your USB stick) :

      Turn on the console in recovery mode and select system update. Now you have a Debugging Station.
      when i use this command

      for the ps3 fat owners under us u have to type sdd1 instead of sda1 in the linux command and ps3vflasha instead of ps3nflasha and you get your dump, but you will get an invalid dump i tried this about 20 times. CEX to DEX will not find metldr in that dump.

      so i tried memdump for gameOS and got the same dump (251.396.096 Bytes) from flasha and it worked fine with CEX to DEX, now i got my metldr file

      till now i am stuck at sudo make cause it wont install properly with apt-get install make

      I�ll try to figure that out as well

      Try just logging in as root so you don't have to type sudo all the time to do that type in terminal:
      su (and press enter)
      you will be prompted for the root password, enter it and then continue.
      hope this helps.

      Not sure if anyone has converted a nand PS2 BC ps3 yet but I heard that you could run ps2 backups(burned to disc) as long as they are converted to a masterdisc. can anyone confirm?
      I�m also wondering about psx backups and psp items.
      any advantages on DEX?

      My hand are itching to do this. But I have one burning question.
      Does Showtime still works? I gave to Ps3 to the missus and she cant live without Showtime.
      Could somebody give me some info before I get kicked out of the house.
      Its not that I need Dex but I am bored.

      DEX 4.11 here.

      Just tested showtime 3.9-test and even though it installs fine, the app itself is nowhere to be found (probably because it's suppose to install itself under Video and on Dex this might be different from programming point of view)
      Does anyone know a showtime app that installs as a normal app, in Game folder?


      UPDATE: showtime-3.6.5 release pkg installs and even shows under Video but fails to start with a 80010017 error. Should I try repackaging it? I guess not because it's already unsigned. It might run on DEX 3.55, has anyone tried it? I'm feeling kind of lazy downgrading.

      EDIT: Confirmed!
      It works perfectly fine on DEX 3.55 even without reinstalling (originally installed from DEX 4.11) so it's a matter of firmware compatibility

      I'd like to see people try if RetroArch PS3 DEX edition will run from DEX 4.11 (RetroArch.PS3.v0.9.6.FOR.DEBUG.PS3) - you can look at xbins.org if you don't know where it is to be found. It's compiled with an older SDK version (3.40 ) but theoretically it should work on later firmware versions all the same.

      If I'm right in thinking that no homebrew will work on DEX 4.11 because they are all signed for 3.55
      So for me whats the point of going to DEX 4.11 if things like blackbox FTP, Showtime, Multiman don't work ?

      All games are playable now up to 4.11 from DEX console. The method in playing all of them are different. For 3.55 games & below we can do it the old way via either internal or external HDD from CFW. For newer games, we have to use the USB BD Emulator method until possibly another solution comes along. This method only allows 4 games on a USB HDD at a time. I'm talking about backups of course here & not retail discs.

      BTW, we can now go back & forth from CEX to DEX as well. All we have to do is change the name of the flash & re-install from USB drive. That's a plus! One other thing! The MultiMan version of DEX doesn't allow backups. If it did then maybe we could see an option other than USB HDD for playing newer games. I'd love to be able to do all of this from my internal HDD. Thanks guys!

      you must of not read the post above yours he said ALL GAMES
      since its your first post we will let you slide
      Yes all games upto May 2012 can be played
      So here are the things I gathered,correct me if I am wrong:-
      1.We can change CEX to DEX and VICE-VERSA
      2.Only 4 usb games , but up to 4.11 can be played using this firmware.
      3.Dvds and blue ray movies are disabled on dex.
      4.No Psn(risk of ban is high)
      5.Can now be done without a hardware flasher by just installing a modified pup.

      1. Yes

      2. Yes

      3. No, there is a fix available but I don't have the link handy right now

      4. Yes

      5. Yes, but to be safe a flasher is recommended. There's much much less chance of bricks now.
      and finaly here a rapid way from CEX to DEX
      cex to dex - rapid method for, by cotojestwtf

      here my conversion without play in the linuxy etc.. Just download and install the update as normal firmware.

      Read before downloaded:
      > this is only interesting for those who want to check what is dex - but it is probably from this is rebug
      > install the fw only 3.55.
      > after this operation, you can not install such a higher dex fw 4.11.
      > tested on cechj facie do not know how to slimami other models as well as fat. you install at your own risk.
      > i do not know whether there cofka to cex without flasher. Trololol.
      > publish only because, to show that such a softmod is possible.
      > it works homebrew is peek & poke.
      > games you can fire off using multiman, or method known to dex.

      Geohot's make_self_npdrm messes ELF really bad (cuts a lot from it). You can unself it, but can't fself back, sony tool just errors.

      ---------------------------------------
      1) Many >3.56 games don't have updates, and you can't run it without update on DEX.

      2) If game update have one or more *.edat files inside (FFXIII-2, or Disgaea 3/4 for example) you can't repack it correctly with this method. It repacks and installs fine, but freezing on loading.

      3) You can play old <=3.56 backups via BD-Emu without game updates. Just unself EBOOT, fself it with sdk and replace in ps3gen during building.

      FF XIII-2 (US version) works I personally tried it.

      I did not create new package for the update.

      Just unpack the update, rename folder to title id

      put update in dev_hdd0/game

      Go into recovery mode and select rebuild database.

      When ps3 reboots you are done.

      I�m curious about this also.
      these update that people are talking about, are they retail updates or debug updates?
      If they�re debug updates are they signed at all? if there not?.......TB secret method?......nah that�s to good to be true.

      edit.
      well butnut just answered my question. retail update.

      [MENTION=110475]RikuKH3[/MENTION] I played the game on dex 3.74 and dex 4.11.

      I used ps3tools gui edition to unpack the retail update because cygwin wouldn't work
      then I used multiman on dex 3.55 to transfer the update to my ps3.

      So you was on 3.55-DEX when transfering files and rebuilding database? Then you updated to 3.74-DEX and game worked fine? I'm asking because I tried it on 4.11-DEX and used Comgenie filemanager to copy files and it didn't work for me.

      Also, if transfer only eboot without other files game launches up to the first battle and hardfreeze. Are you tested it after that point?

      I did the BD emulator usb option, the hdd native and then formated my external hdd. I used ps3 gen to create the image and write it to hdd but game won't show up on DEX 3.55 . I'll keep testing out using another usb port. Thanks for the help.

      Edit: I had to plug my external hdd a few times, reboot my ps3 and game appeared on xmb.

      If you mean changing which game load at one time you need to open ps3 gen and select one of the 4 partitions and put it to default. Then go back to ps3 insert the ext hdd and boot up the ps3.

      This is what im most interested in i tried to make a fake update for one of the games without official update and it won't boot. I didn't sign it i just made a folder with the ps3 game id, added the required files and moved it to ps3hdd0/game folder. This method worked with Soulcalibur 5 with official update no need to use psn_package_npdrm.exe just extract,rename to game id and transfer with multiman. Obviously this doesn't solve the original problem to get games without update to run on DEX 4.11.

      I made the iso in PS3gen and burned on Blu Ray disc but on the PS3 it doesn't show up. Maybe is because I didn't change some settings in "Debug Settings" or something else.

      However, on external HDD (USB Blu Ray emulator) the games are working great

      Sorry for my bad English...

      change your debug settings from usb emulator to BDrive in debug would be my guess not sure if it works.

      I think I'll wait for someone to make a tutorial about playing games from Blu Ray disc. Meanwhile I'll stick with HDD USB.

      Few questions, I'm trying to understand if switching between running old and new backups really is quick & easy.

      How do I downgrade to MFM 3.55 DEX (to run old backups) from lets say 4.11 DEX ?
      Is it just a matter of installation MFM 3.55 DEX PUP from XMB, simply as that?

      Will my internal HD be reformatted in doing so or when switching from MFM 3.55 DEX back to 4.11 DEX for example?

      If you are on DEX you can install each DEX FW update to the internal hdd. The update you need is the Downgrader3.55 PUP it will take you back to 3.55 then you install your modified MFM DEX 3.55. So you can go back down and up to 4.11 using the updates on the hdd no need for usb drive. About the hdd it will not be formated since you install the update like the official sony FW updates.

      Thanks, but can Downgrader3.55 PUP be modified so that it would install MFM DEX 3.55 right away, and not "ordinary" DEX 3.55, to avoid redundant step?

      i have read on a german site that someone made some kind of hybrid dex 3.55 firmware, it enabled features like peek&poke for bdemu v2 and other advantages from kmeaw and packed them into a 3.55 dex firmware so its usable on dex console.
      is it for somebody possible to do this also with the recently released 4.11 dex?
      this would really be cool because this would give us the possibility to use mmCM on 4.11 dex

      I've read somewhere that initially BD disc doesn't work on DEX FW. However, a fix was made to solve this problem.
      That's all I know, I don't even know if the fix was released publicly, but it brings back BD disc play.

      On the Italian forum (shown in the 2nd/3rd post of this thread) there's a few other people with the same problems (Max Payne 3) I tried another backup image but it doesn't seem to work. Wondering if anyone really had it function.

      Ok, this is pretty simple then: you can't do practically anything on 4.11 you must first downgrade to 3.55 dex ofw with the appropriate pup then update to 3.55 correctly patched(i think there is a thread on this forum where you can find a pre-patched pup) and only then you will be able to use comgenie(with advanced mode there is no error) and install openps3ftp (ftp and copy/paste doesn't work with multiman dex)

      Just use Multiman's mmOS for file management-related activities on 4.11 DEX.

      Comgenie was never updated beyond this version and the source was never released either - pretty much a dead-end.

      It seems that mmOS on multiman dex version doesn't work correctly(can't copy/paste,ftp or even access some folders like dev_hdd0/home), or at least mine doesn't and other people reported the same.

      Downgraded to dex 3.55 peek/poke, installed the latest multiman, even when I start it for the first time it gives me an error about accessing some files, and using ftp I still cant copy to the home directory. I guess its just a waiting game now.

      Some dirs are protected by default on DEX yes - for that same reason you can't create a directory yourself in /dev_hdd0/game/. Could be down to chmod permissions and whatnot - I'm not really sure.

      ok i think my problem was that i was using win 7 via wmware fusion. i tried on my xp laptop and it built it fine. but however it still said that the game required 3.72 or something, so im thinking that maybee i didnot build the new pkg update correctly. or maybee its just the game. mw3

      I agree, theres only so much help that can be given... If people can't do it using guides currently out (Theres some pretty decent ones surfacing) then i would just wait until theres a guide using the new DemonHades tools

      that is the same problem i had. if your on win 7 run as admin then it would show up. but then i couldnt drop the files in it. but i ran it on xp and everything worked fine.

      well i got the game to show up in the xmb but when i launched it said it still needed 3.7, or should i be on dex 4.11?

      I get these errors with ps3 gen Version 3.12 & 3.10 - [Error] LICDIR: Invalid dirname.
      [Error] TROPDIR: Invalid dirname.
      [Error] Directory (NPCommID): Not found in /PS3_GAME/TROPDIR. game is White Kight Chroncles 2 ps3gen can build it anyways and the game boots shows some sluff and then it says can't find torpdirs and says press PS to exit game. I try rebuilding the game without trodirs but its the same so how can I fix these errs with ps3gen?

      I have a question, wich is a little bit off topic.
      So, can we change files of a game, once we have put it on the hdd? I'm talking about 3.6+ games. I'm asking, because I make translations (language) for games and I do need to be able to replace the modified files to test them. Right now I'm still on CEX and I use MM file manager for this. Thanks in advance.

      Simply, I mean: Are we able to use MM's File manager (mmOS) on DEX console?

      Erm..... it's a DEX.

      As far as I'm aware, keys are not needed for homebrew on a DEX.

      Unsigned stuff will work on DEX so when creating homebrew, don't sign it with any keys.

      Found out you have to use multiman 4.01.00 with the dex update then youre going to be able to copy files from/to the home directory. Then I copied over my savegame, flash it back to DEX 4.11 and play the game.

      The debug eboots is as far as I know on the sp-int developer network o0 The games we are messing with are retail games, which do not have a debug eboot on them.

      If what you are thinking is dumping the loaded eboots from memory and resigning them, then sadly we cannot as, although we can still run homebrew on 3.55DEX+, we cannot peek in the memory and dump the decrypted eboots from them

      I do believe that progress is being made in this area in the shadows

      I thought in order to get backups running on DEX (3.56+) you had to download a debug update? can the debug update not be ftpd/copied out? It should contain the debug eboot/sprxs required?

      Thanks harry,

      I have put the psn_pacakge_npdrm.exe in the same solder as the extracted pkg and have made a package.conf that looks like this.
      Content-ID = EP0001-BLUS30838_00-0000111122223333
      K_licensee = 0x00000000000000000000000000000000
      DRM_Type = Free
      Content_Type = GameData
      PackageType = DiscGamePatch
      PackageVersion = 01.17

      Now step 5 its says "run it via cmd with psn_package_npdrm.exe package.conf BCUS98295
      -> this will create a new update pkg for your game -> put on usb stick an install on DEX 3.55 ( don't know if you can also install it late)"

      This has lost me ?

      If I click the exe it flashes and goes.

      I see some of you having problems with psn_package_npdrm.exe and the thing is you don't need to use it. You need to extract the retail package to your pc then rename it as BLUSXXXX (XXX = game id) then move it to devhdd0/game with multiman. You then turn off your ps3 and run recovery mode and rebuild the database. Install DEX FW 4.11 and enjoy your game from usb. I can also confirm on NOR consoles if you want to use original 4.11 games you just need to change usb emu to BD drive and hdd native back to same as speed as BD. It works without a drive fix.

      I installed multiman on DEX 3.55 then i moved the files needed to game folder after that i updated to DEX 4.11. You can install the updates needed to hdd using DEX FW so you can just switch from 3.55 to 4.11 and back without conecting a usb hdd. Hopefully this answers your question.

      dude, i must be just too dumb! i`ve been reading all tutorials and its so confuse!

      I did nothing till now, (reading, trying not to do stupid moves), decided to wait for a "totally stupid retard tutorial for dummies", all i would like to know is:

      1 - What is the Lastest CFW that works with this (cex->dex) ?
      2 - Does that means i can play all games (some people would call it backups) on my cfw machine ?
      3 - "managers" (like multiman, rogero, open...), works with that ?
      4 - I will lose all my hd data with this ? (500gb, lots of backups, lot of lazyness).

      If some angels can answers this on MP, i would "thanks very much", if u cant, dont need to NERD RAGE on me, i tried to understand it, maybe my english aint working that well

      2 - Does that means i can play all games (some people would call it backups) on my cfw machine ?
      3 - "managers" (like multiman, rogero, open...), works with that ?
      4 - I will lose all my hd data with this ? (500gb, lots of backups, lot of lazyness).

      If some angels can answers this on MP, i would "thanks very much", if u cant, dont need to NERD RAGE on me, i tried to understand it, maybe my english aint working that well
      1 3.55
      2 no
      3 yes
      4 no

      Did anyone happen to make their own version of Max Payne 3 yet?
      I see "Max Payne 3 confirmed on 4.11 DEX" .. tho there's a few people with issues!

      Can anyone tell me a specific place through PM,
      where it's said how they managed to get it to work?

      I haven't had any other game crap out on me, they all work perfectly.

      Hi. I have tried my backup copy of Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 using this method. And I was seem to be successful, but the game asks me to update to 3.6.......

      But then, I am using a modified DEX 3.55 which has peek and poke.

      Does this mean I need to change to at least a 3.6 DEX before I can play this game?

      You know being on DEX 3.55 doesn't magically give you the 3.60 keys you need to update to higher DEX FW in order to play the game.

      Well. Kinda obvious isn't it..... >.<

      Well, seems like a tossup between no multiman/peek & poke VS playing backups which require the latest firmware.... Hmm..... Decisions decisions.....

      Jump between 4.20 DEX and 3.55 DEX according to what you need in the moment, easy as cake once you're on DEX

      I jumped firmwares (hehe) to DEX 4.11 since I already got it from Captain's CEX to DEX tutorial.

      I can confirm that this method works. I used an 8GB MicroSD with with a card reader and used Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 and installed the PKG update extracted with PKGView and compiled back again with PSN Package.

      Interestingly, the PS3gen application changes the param.sfo to require at least a 3.6 firmware. Does changing the param.sfo (Impossible due to the unique BDEmu filesystem?) will affect backups running in DEX's lower than 3.6? Sorry for the noob question that requires an obvious answer, but just wanting to be 100% sure.

      You could change the param.sfo to require 2.60 FW but it won't run because the Eboot has the 3.60 + keys. If you meant for 3.55 games im sure they won't run if the param.sfo is higher than your firmware.

      Most games with retail updates including MW3 work on DEX 4.11. I read for the resistance 3 game you need to change software mode to release in debug options for it to work but i haven't tested.

      You need to be on DEX 3.55 FW with peek and poke added to backup games with multiman. You can only play 3.55 games with multiman on DEX 3.55 and for games requiring a higher firmware you need to be on DEX 4.11 or higher.

      OR here is an even better solution b4 u even go to 4.20 to play the game install the update through installpgk on a peek&poke enabled 3.55 dex pup then update to 4.20 to play the game off bdemu....simples!!!

      nOPE but am just someone with alot of common sense....lol...unless the method to use psn_package_npdrm is a crucial part to getting the game play,but if not my method would be an easier way to it.

      It gets easier. Get update unpack with math PSP ps3 pkg extractor or PSdevGUI tools then repack with http://www.2shared.com/file/CWuLP5jA/make_pkg.html for windows and http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=39924 for Mac and install on 4.11 dex no downgrading it's a waste of time.

      I've already tried it and it works but you must be on 4.11 dex to play with the latest update.
      I repacked all the updates (3+GB) in a single package and installed it on 3.55 dex, then updated to 4.11 dex and installed GT5 on bd-emu hdd.

      First you have to unpack all the updates with PkgView then using the first update (1.05) as the base you start to copy the files from the other updates,overwriting when asked:
      (1.06-->1.05 folder) -->(1.07-->1.05 folder)-->(1.08-->1.05 folder) etc.

      You MUST follow the update numerical order or else it won't work.
      When you have finished copying all the files then you use psn_package_npdrm.exe to create the new package ready to install.

      The only downside is that it takes a LOT of time for the package to install since it's 3+GB in size.

      mate could you explain this in more detail, maybe even start a new thread and write a little tut because to me this is not very clear.

      Could anyone give me a clue where I am going wrong, every game I build to disc and try and load on the ps3 returns the error "To play this game you must insert the following disc, insert the disc then start the game again, ( 8001003E )

      Ok just an update, if I delete the PKG from game data then the game loads to a black screen with a error, so it looks like the PKG is wrong but how can it be wrong when I have followed the guide to the letter.



      Another update ..lol I think I have found my problem, I have been installing the retail pkg ...dohhh

      Right now I am trying to install the debug pkg that has been made psn_package but getting error 80029567 and it wont install

      No F**k it, just done Battlefield 3 convert retail pkg into debug pkg ( 1550mb) install OK on ps3 then did disc image with ps3gen but same old story it wont load and comes up with the To play this game you must insert the following disc, insert the disc then start the game again, ( 8001003E )

      Does it appear more than one icon at the time, in the xmb?
      Yesterday I installed Ghost Recon - in the partition 0 -, and played with it a little. Today I wanted to try Max Payne 3, and installed it in partition 1.
      After that, only Max Payne appears in XMB. Do I have to change any settings to swap partitions? Or did I do something wrong?

      You can only run one game at a time on DEX even if you have 4 partitions with games installed. You need to connect your ext hdd to your pc, open ps3 gen program and click on build then you switch one of the 4 partitions to default. The partition that gets selected as default will show the game installed on it so switch the default partition if you want to play another game. It's a pain in the ass but this is the way to run games on DEX 4.11.

      Also i think i may have done the building incorrectly. PS3_gen doesn't let me make any directories in root of the ps3_game folder of my backup. For instants resistance 3's PKGDIR folder and contents. So it won't let me copy them.

      The tutorial doesn't explain correctly what i need to copy?

      EDIT: Okay got it, for some reason i plugged it in to the rightest usb slot and it showed. strange.

      If I understood you correctly, you don't need to copy the directory (PS3GEN won't allow you to do it) . Try going inside the PS3_GAME folder, then drag the contents of it also inside the PS3_GAME of PS3GEN.

      You can play 3.55 games on multiman with a DEX 3.55 FW with peek and poke. For 4.11 games you need to use the external hdd method.

      Great news. I have also been messing around with this but didn�t have any luck. I was also thinking it was because of the signed eboots.
      did you manage to unsign them?
      I was also trying Deank�s disc boot program to boot backed up games off of disc but with no luck. that��s not really needed because you should be able to play games from disc if it�s burned right. I just don�t know how. ps3gen has option for DVd and BD.
      If anyone knows how to play backups off of disc on DEX, I would apreciate any info.
      It�s great to see people trying different things. Reminds me of when the ps3 first got jailbroken.
      Tested my 1st 3.6+ game today.

      Have you tried creating a pseudo-shortcut install for the game?

      What I mean is, create a package to be installed that simply points to the games files.

      We used to do this on 3.41 before we got kmeaw. That way you won't be taking up all your internal space for games.

      "lastgame" for MM or "XMBoot" will do that for you but you may have to fake-sign them for dex.

      [Error] TROPHY.TRP: Invalid TRP format.
      [Error] EBOOT.BIN: Invalid SELF format.
      [Error] LIC.DAT: License ID(BLUS30538) must not exist.

      Maybe we could use "force_package_npdrm" to make games without updates work like psn games.
      The bad news for me is i don't know how to create an eboot wich will load the "true" eboot...


      oh and another thing the wiki is down or is it just from me?

      I wished someone would have shared with me about 2 days ago ...lol then I might still have a wife who wanted me !

      I did everything right but was just missing some files in ps3gen.

      I took all the files from the original PS3/USER/DIR and drag them across to ps3gen.

      I also left disc version at 01.00 and sce was put in caps like SCE.

      Any way doing the above worked.

      What I can say is that lightyear has posted two videos on you tube that if you follow then you wont go wrong.

      My dragon's dogma doesn't seem to want to work. I've installed the 1.02 update, but every time I click the game on XMB, it just goes to a black screen and stays there. I didn't get any error while doing any of the steps. I even tried jumping to 3.55 with peek and poke to install the update then go back to 4.20, but I would still get the black screen.

      Any ideas?


      One more quick question, when installing an update using this method, will the install screen be similiar to installing any package or should it go to one of those patch screen that tell you what version is being installed? Whenever I install the update, it looks like its installing a regular patch. In the game data utility there is a file for dragon's dogma and it says "version: 1.02"

      Well, the problem is just there's a lot of ways to forget some stuff, and most of the bricks are actually because of trying to go back into CEX from DEX. And the "PS3 Factory mode" application.

      According to the posts I saw about bricking, the most common reason for bricks is "FACTORY_SERVICE_MODE_TOOL_v02" and ""JAICRAB_PRELOADER_ADVANCE_v31" and it's associated files "Lv2diag_exit.self" and "lv2diag.self" .

      The Factory Service Mode Tool generates "Lv2diag_exit.self" . Because you need that file to go out of Factory Service mode. But it seems that the "Lv2diag_exit.self" made thru CEX cannot be used on DEX and vice versa. This is culprit I guess. And the best solution is for the maker of that application to be able to verify is that "lv2diag.self" is compatible with the PS3 that will use it. As it just blindly uses any "lv2diag.self" file it finds. But I think this will be hard to do.....

      Or change how ""FACTORY_SERVICE_MODE_TOOL_v02" works so that a brick will not happen, like changing how it modifies stuff inside the PS3.

      The Linux some has some sort of safeguards, if you can't install it, you're doing something seriously wrong.

      While if you botch up the Backuprflash.bin dumping, the resulting root key is all zero, which makes it fail on the CEX2DEX app.

      But the reverse might not be true. If your Backupflash.bin dump is correct, but you forgot extract the metldr or put it in the "metldrpwn" directory. The best solution for this is to look at the programs loaded by the script if it produces an error.

      I think I've read somewhere here that you can disable trophy on ps3gen building and some games will work, but won't have trophies.

      I have 2 consoles cechco4's(one has cfw and other ofw.I would like to convert the one to dex.The real question is that could i ever convert to dex as the cfw console has a broken lasers.

      Could someone link me to a great guide to installing linux via usb and not via cd on to the ps3.I read alot of guides for installing other os,but all of them require iso to be burned to disk.

      Is there someone on the forum who converted to dex using a ps3 without a laser.Will there not be complications arising from firmware checks.peek and poke..etc when the bd drive is not working.

      I am very pc savvy all i need is a ps3 guide via usb

      [MENTION=219458]keano[/MENTION]: thx, although it isn't the RUN right, would be nice if someone can confirm this game

      tested some older psn games, zenpinball loads fine, but then im getting "game data corrupt error's - re-install the game


      it looks like this could fix it

      How to fix error game data corrupt when launching game from xmb

      When you start a game that requires to write game data, it will probably fail at starting saying "game data is corrupt, delete and reinstall the game". This is because in the /dev_hdd0/game/[game-id] there is a params.sfo saying, this folder is owned by a hard disk game. But to be able to write cache, the params.sfo must say "GD" for game data. But when you just edit the type to game data, it wont show up anymore in xmb (because its no more a harddisk game). So this tutorial will help you fix this error and it will still show up in xmb.

      XXXXXX = game-id
      YYYYYY = fake game-id (just any game-id that you dont have installed, recommend just XXXXXX + 1)

      1. Modify eboot.bin the usual way
      2. Create a folder called YYYYYY and a YYYYYY.conf with the following inside
      Code:

      Content-ID = UP0001-YYYYYY_00-0000111122223333
      k_licensee = 0x00000000000000000000000000000000
      DRM_Type = Free
      Content_Type = Game_Exec
      PackageVersion = 01.00

      3. Paste all files from folder PS3_GAME (not folders) and TROPDIR folder into YYYYYY
      4. Create a folder called USRDIR and paste modified eboot.bin in it.
      5. Modify the game-id from XXXXXX to YYYYYY in the params.sfo you just pasted into the folder YYYYYY
      6. Create a psn package the usual way from YYYYYY.conf and YYYYYY folder.
      7. Install it
      8. Go to /dev_hdd0/game/YYYYYY and modify the params.sfo game-id back to XXXXXX
      9. Create a folder in /dev_hdd0/game/ called XXXXX
      10. Copy all files from PS3_GAME (not folders) in there
      11. Get a params.sfo from any game data (in any folder from /dev_hdd0/game/ that is not a psn game).
      12. Modify the title id and title name and be sure the type is "GD" game data
      13. Put modified params.sfo into /dev_hdd0/game/XXXXXX
      14. Start game, let it install game data and have fun playing.

      Method found by me, tested with NBA Elite 11 and works, all games which require game data install should work with this.

      I will upload the files for NBA Elite 11 when I am at home
      if someone has time, can we check out those games to get it working, it's just taking alot of time testing stuff out , i Brain Challenge PSN worked fine

      Have you tried faking your ps3's region to usa in debug settings?

      I think that will force the game into English if it has English language files in it.

      Oh come on, this question was asked a lot of times before. 3.55 won't allow you to play new games. You still have to update to newer dex frmw. Last released one is 4.20. But it does not have peek and poke, so you can't use backup managers to play backups, and only way to play them is with these method.

      UPD: Oops, guess I'm too late.

      Any ideas?


      One more quick question, when installing an update using this method, will the install screen be similiar to installing any package or should it go to one of those patch screen that tell you what version is being installed? Whenever I install the update, it looks like its installing a regular patch. In the game data utility there is a file for dragon's dogma and it says "version: 1.02"
      In case anybody else has this problem, I solved it.

      I seem to have created the patch pkg wrong. I redid the patch pkg, installed it, and the game booted up right away.

      Glad you got it working, I can't always answer straight away because I'm a truck driver.

      Also when I go to manage>storage my computer only sees one partition..

      Any idea where im going wrong?
      same thing happened to me with a 8gb pen.
      Just stick it in your PC and format it with ps3gen.

      edit.
      do you mean ps3gen doesn�t recognize it as formatted or doesn�t even list it to format?

      Nah, don't contains anything SDK from *them* and even if it so. It's on the torrents.
      So appears to be *Warez* but at the same time following HAX rules = Not.

      First, did you set the HDD Emulator as USB on the Debug Settings on your DEX'd PS3? And in my experience, I also used an 8GB SD Card. But it only created a single partition. Still works though.

      it doesn't recognise it in ps3gen after format from the playstation.. then I formatted it back to fat32 to see could I format in ps3gen but it still didn't recognise it

      yeah I switched on HDD emulator usb on in debug settings..If I do a quick format on the playstation my pc still recognises it as a fat32 drive but If I do a full format my pc wants it to be formatted before its used and ps3gen doesn't recognise it

      I formatted to ntfs first then ran as admin and ps3gen seen my usb..

      Ive managed to build the file and copy it to my usb to layer1 as it would not allow me to copy to layer 0.
      My playstation wont detect the game though.. nothing happens when I insert the usb.. Nothing will run from /app_home/ps3_game..

      In my debug settings bd emu is set to usb.. speed is hdd native.. the disc from my game section on the xmb is missing and the update pkg seems to be installed ok..

      when building with ps3gen I done the title etc... sfo... copied everything from my usrdir apart from the ones in licdir that it wont let me copy.. When I go to buld it says sfo is smaller than expected or something like that but everything else seems to go fine.. I tried this with both battlefield 3 and skyrim but neither worked..

      Any help would be great

      Did you try connecting the usb hdd then turning on the ps3. It should appear as a BD game just click on the disc icon and enjoy.

      yeah but still no sign of the game icon.. When I run /ps3_home it gives me the same error as when I run it with no usb inserted.. Its not detecting it at all but Im not sure if its because I didn't build the HDD correctly or if some thing is not right on the playstation

      Format your usb hdd to fat32 then try formatting the usb HDD with debug settings in ps3. Follow this video tutorial to build your game image with ps3 gen http://www.ps3iso.com/playstation-ne...-3-master.html other than that make sure to have BD access to usb emulator and transfer rate to HDD native. Also you won't get your game to run from /app_home/ it will appear as if you inserted an original Bluray game. I marked on bold a step im sure you missed ps3 gen will not read your hdd if you didn't format it with debug settings there's an option to format your external hdd (ex. format BD emulator).

      Backup of my own disc situation ?
      I keep my discs away from scratches. Most of my own games are backed up on the hdd and i am at peace knowing that i dont have to bother with purchasing em again in case they crack or go unusuable.

      One man's back up might be other's piracy.. but then its the interpretation.
      Simply sticking to what might be possible is being very rigid.

      A video showing CEX to DEX would be way too long, it takes a long time to do.

      Following this guide and you wont go wrong http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=40292
      Things go wrong when people rush in to things and don't take their time.

      I have done one following this guide and tomorrow I will do another following the same guide.

      A CEX2DEX video is extremely hard to make i'm thinking about doing one though would have to split it up into a few parts and the video would probably be like 1-2hrs long.. if someone gives me some info on changing my nor dex back to cex i might just do it

      edit: i also don't have a hardware flasher so don't want to be flashing my ps3 a lot.. that is why i'm really hesitant on flashing back to cex to make a video tut and flash back to dex.. The first time i flashed to dex scared me enough haha

      I have couple of questions.

      1. As you know there are various types of updates. Some are cumulative and some require previous updates to be installed. If the game has more than 1 updates. Should I use only patch the last latest update, or patch every single update?

      2. How do I select between the 4 games?

      Thanks.

      1. just the latest update

      2. in ps3gen select what game you want to play as the default partition and that will be the game that shows up.

      1. Example: if the game has 3 updates. 1.01, 1.02 and 1.03. So I install 1.01 and 1.02 without patching and install the last update with patch?

      2. Is it a one click switch tag to set default or is it a re-transfer of the backup?

      Thank you.

      HDD Format BD Emulator"--> "Quick"
      Boot Mode" -->"Release Mode"
      "Blu-ray Disc Access"---> "BD Emulator (USB)"
      "Transfer Rate Pacing for BD Emulator"-->"HDD Native" )

      Hi everyone, I apologise for my lack of knowledge on the subject but does this mean I will finally be able to update my Gran Turismo 5 to the latest patch (i.e. over version 2.0)? I have been waiting to do this for so long since being on kmeaw 3.55!

      Hmmm, don't know if the idea was given days before but....
      What's the problem of a "Fake Update" for every game?
      So if there is no update for a game you could create a fake_update_01_01.pkg which alters a common file of the game and after that install fake_update_01_02.pkg to undo the change but it's now playable on a DEX console.

      I don't think it's that simple but I thought I share my ideas with the scene^^

      Offtopic: Is there any way of getting Guitar Hero DLC Songs working on Backup? We can clone sheeps and can shoot cows on the moon but there's no known way to get DLC Songs working?

      I'm wondering the exact same thing myself. When I looked at the ps3gen information (albeit skimmed) it did seem like it was official SONY stuff, and thus falling under warez pretty much.

      Makes sense to me, if it's still in the "fuzzy" area, to keep it off of here. *Makes sense to me* is key.

      I believe Resident Evil Operation Raccon City has 3 updates. 1.01, 1.02 and 1.03. Did you try patching all the 3 updates? I still find it suspicious on why should one only apply patch to the last update.

      Please report back your findings.

      I was also thinking about would creating "fake package" would be possible or not. Think about it, remember those cheat PKGs from CMP (codemasters projects) they are like fake pkgs too. What if we could use the similar steps from that and in the final step, we could use patching method by using psn_package_npdrm.exe. I don't think it would be that easy but just throwing some ideas, that all. I wonder will it be possible?

      Create PARAM.SFO with ps3sys.exe.
      Copy ICON0.PNG & PIC1.PNG & PS3LOGO.DAT & SND0.AT3 To A Folder With Name For Exapmle : BLES01470
      Create USRDIR In Same Folder
      Create package.conf With Higher Version (if game version is 1.04 we must edit in package.conf to 1.05)
      Create The PKG.
      Install.
      Check PKG & All is good.
      but game wont start.
      so we need to modifie EBOOT.BIN to get games working without update & with fake Update.
      if there is no change in Game Files so game wont work without update.
      i tested 2 games that haven't any update but same result & back to xmb.

      Thanks for your findings. I guess installing all 3 updates together does not work too. I wonder what is special about Resident Evil Operation Raccon City? Special encryption?

      I have a question about Gran Turismo Spec 2.0. Well it has many updates and I was wondering do I have to install them 1 by 1 ? Because as far as I know the latest updates does not have the contents of the previous.
      I have Spec 2.0 (which obviously is 2.0), but there are 7 more updates (right until 2.07) and they are different sizes. For example 2.07 is 2.14MB, but 2.06 is 474.61MB. Any ideas how to make things easier, than extract/compile all of them 1 by 1?

      Edit: Actually, I have something in mind - install [MENTION=185665]itskamel[/MENTION]'s 3.55 DEX, then install all of the updates 1 by 1, and then just extract/compile the last (2.07). I have to try that.

      Ryan I've been thinking about this for Fifa12. If you recall we got a fix that was 3 PKG's that if you installed one by one you a fully working PSN Fifa12.
      Now of course it wont work on DEX 4.20 ( I tried ) but if we could convert these 3 PKG's to debug then maybe it would work ?

      I don't have Fifa 12 but it should work, just unpack them with pkgview and repack with psn_package_npdrm.

      Hi, I got a 160gb USB HDD with 4 partitions on it. I put the first game, Sonic Generations, and played successfuly with DEX. Then, I put GoW3 on the second partition. Now XMB only shows GoW, and I can't seem to find a way to select the game on the first partition.
      So my question is: Is there any way to cycle between the games installed on different partitions on the same HDD?

      Open ps3gen.exe as Admin, then go to Command -> BD Emulator HDD Utility, then Set Default to the game I wanna play!

      When you say that you have place all update into 1 single pkg, I have a question for you?

      Did you do it in this manner? Example if the game as 5 updates, did you aways merge the pervious update to the 1st update.

      In this way, the latest files are always the latest file.

      [[[[1.01 < 1.02] < 1.03] < 1.04] < 1.05]

      Than finally perform the "psn_package_npdrm.exe" patch to the final merged folder?

      Thank you.

      [[[[1.01 < 1.02] < 1.03] < 1.04] < 1.05]

      Than finally perform the "psn_package_npdrm.exe" patch to the final merged folder?

      Thank you.
      That is what I did, all the way from 1.05 to 2.07. Works for me.

      Start ps3gen as admin. Then go to "Command" (on the line menu, right next to File, Edit, View) and choose BD Emulator Hdd Utility and choose your default partition from there.

      Definitely it would be.

      On a side-note. If you remember Uncharted 3 requires heavy patching in order to work on 3.55 CEX. I wonder now if Uncharted 3 could simply work in DEX via a simple patched update.

      Hm, I remember, yes. Haven't tried Uncharted 3 now on DEX, but I guess it will work just with update, like other games. So far I've tested :

      GT5 Spec II
      Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
      Batman: Arkham City
      Deus Ex: Human Revolution
      MGS HD Collection

      and they all work like a charm.

      after you do all the steps .. you need to save your file then reopen ps3gen with admin, then open up your saved file then choose build

      yes you will need to upgrade your dex firmware to 4.11 or 4.20 to play the game. then when you want to downgrade u will need to use the 3.55 DEX downgrader pup from the wiki or rogero 3.55 downgrade. then you can go back to 3.55 kamel firmware.

      once you go above 3.55 on dex firmware i suggest you use this to get back to 3.55, then you can flash my firmware after you have goten back to 3.55

      Just for the info - Rogero V2 cannot downgrade 4.20 DEX. It gives error code (forgot the nubers) "corrupted file". But the 3.55 Downgrader from the dev wiki does the job done, no problem. Then I installed your 3.55 Dex, updated again to 4.20 several times and this is the outcome. In other words - if anyone goes to 4.20 DEX and want to downgrade, but Rogero gives error - don't panic and use the 3.55 downgrader from the wiki. I saw a 4.20 downgrader there, too but haven't used it. I hope this is useful to you guys.

      make sure your hdd is in the furthest port to the right (the one closest to where you put disc in) should work after that

      i would assume that it is playable, but i am not sure because every game ive done so far has had one.

      The new mM update is supposed to do that but it kept locking up on my 4.20 so I just selected the games in the PC based app instead. Very easy to use and games are pretty quick as well.

      Think of it as a multiman for the pc. It shows a list of your games on your PC, select one, click "mount" and it mounts it to app_home via TM.

      If you have the new mM installed, you can choose the game via mM instead.

      Works quite well, had a couple of lock ups with mM so I uninstalled it and use the PC app instead.

      no, ps3gen is NOT needed. The PC app essentially mounts the selected game to the ps3's app_home folder.

      What I have done, is moved my backups to one folder which I point the PC app to. This then mounts the selected game to "app_home" via TM.

      Go to the PS3 and start the game from app_home.

      cheers so it only works if there is a 3.55 fix

      Pretty cool, I was already playing some games over LAN with Target Manager but this is so much easier. I was doing it to learn a little about my DEX but it�s great that more came out of it than I and others expected.
      Also this is a much better solution than updating for new games and downgrade for the older games.

      As Dean said at crunch.. the main point of this is you can load your old 3.55 backups easily on 4.20. It modifies the EBOOT on the fly and even converts them back to normal for 3.55 use.
      You can play your old games.. new 'backups' that have updates + 4.20 retail disks.
      Newest showtime, RetroArch and most the important mM functions work.
      DEX 4.20 isn't as much of a hassle to be on.

      Pardon the redundance GraVoX959, but does this actually allows games that don't have a 3.55 fix yet to be playable on 4.20 through simple LAN and TM with the tools provided? Just install the debug pkg with the update and run the game through this method? Seriously? WoW! Didn't see that one coming, not this fast. So basically this is a bypass on the need for keys, an alternate peek n' poke... alright Sony, we can't acess and handle files as we please on 3.56+ fws but as it turns out we won't be needing it anymore! WoW! Much respect and appreciation to everyone envolved! Cheers.

      Sorry to kill your excitement, but in the readme says "no psn/pkg fixes". In other this does not remove the need of debug updates and you can only play games that have fixes for CFW 3.55

      This coming from a user credited in the aforementioned readme says your wrong benzinjiq. Nonetheless, if I misunderstood the information I apologize.

      Sorry.. didn't make myself clear enough. I meant the newer games that run with the update patch trick.
      Basically what you can do with 4.xx DEX already.. plus you can now load 3.55 backups as well.

      You were reffering to the new update patch tricks on 3.55 then? So basically the bdemu+external hdd still requireable for games still unpatched? Then, yeah... Jonah_UK got it right, still getting there not quite the nail in the head just yet. Guess I overreacted a bit the first time I read it.

      [MENTION=215845]Bereuza[/MENTION] I'm not totally sure.. I didn't actually do the testing. I was just credited coz I'm good looking :D
      I'll ask the guys later when I finish work.
      From my understanding it loads all the 3.55 (+ recently released cracked TB games) backups. I'm pretty sure it may run the games that you had to partition the external HDD for over the network.
      That's the one bit I'm not sure about.
      I know it runs some of the troublesome games like Assassins Creed no problems.
      But yeah either ask Dean or one of the guys at crunch or I'll find out for sure later and let you know

      So there's a chance then... please do so, check back with the devs when you have the time and share the info with the rest of us. If the bdemu+externalhdd can be replaced by this method then it's a huge break indeed and with a simple tweeks and a wired network we could have a definitive method to load any game playable on DEX thus far, leaving unplayable only the ones that don't have updates. Would be great, fingers crossed! Cheers.

      When you use BDemu to play games the ps3 sees it mounted at dev_bdvd just like a real disc and the update is programed to look for the game disc at dev_bdvd so that is why you can play these games.

      When you use this new pc method your game is on your pc and the program decrypts the eboot/sprx and fake signs them so the game can be mounted at app_home.

      We don't have the keys for 3.60+ so these games cannot be fake signed. I believe they can still be mounted but unplayable and you cant use the games update to trick it into playing because the update cannot see the app_home mount point it can only see dev_bdvd.

      That is why this only works for 3.55 games because the program needs to decrypt the eboot/sprx. All 3.60+ games without a 3.55 patch will need to continue using the BDemu + retail update method.

      * If you prepare UPDATE packages for 03.70-04.20 games make sure to change all /dev_bdvd references in EBOOT.BIN/self/sprx files to /app_home
      Butnut, apparently you forgot to read that part on the readme huh?

      Why do I get this error message when trying to format a HDD in ps3gen?



      I'm on Win7 64-bit and have already tried admin mode and XP compatibility mode.

      Do I have to format the USB HDD on the PS3 with the BD format util on the DEX XMB?

      I get this same error when trying to add a second game to my USB drive....Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'm using 32GB USB stick....Is it because I'm "out of space"? Certain games are only like 5-6GB but does this ps3gen app use the space in 25GB partitions? If so is there any way to change it for smaller games?


      ** EDIT ** All good now using bigger drive.....I would still like to know if its possible not to use 25GB if the game is not that big.

      select inserted usb memory stick/bdemu
      select it - click continue
      click the second option "LOW LEVEL FORMAT" box
      and "select" perform quik wipe(just remove partitions and MBR)
      click "Format this drive"
      takes only a sec...
      windows ask/popsup a "format this drive" before u can use it
      click cancel
      ready for use now

      Hello all!

      I'm on Dex 4.21
      Multiman 4.05.07
      Ps3gen images mounted

      When i start multiman and refresh list o BdEmu games, none appears.

      Don't know if i am missing any setting, or if any problem with the LAN (just plugged the ethernet cable to the router with pc on).

      Could someone help me on this?

      Thanks in Advanced.

      Hey everyone, long time reader, first time poster...

      Just wanted to add I got NHL 13 working with this tutorial,

      As it states, I installed the .pkg file under RogeroDEX 3.55 then upgraded to DEX 4.20 and it worked beautifully.

      I don't know if there's some kind of compatibility thread I should post this in, if so I'd like to know.

      Hey guys,

      I am running DEX 4.21 and have Multiman DEX installed on it. I read in multiman that there is a way to swtich my game that's on my ps3 without going to my pc and opening PS3GEN. Also I read that I can have up to 10 games instead of 4 how do I do that ?

      Thanks
