      I have read it and Euss says that's all made up BS. It does not brick converted DEX's. That would be lawsuit material against Sony.

      Also, I have a haunch that scene devs want to keep the public, those "beneath" them, on a lower DEX FW as much as possible.... That's why we only get get DEX FW's after the they are outdated.

      Lawsuit? Converting Cex2Dex is illegal..
      Its modifying the Software.

      EFFECTIVE DATE:
      October 28, 2012.
      Game console modding: Illegal

      Modding your game console to run software other than what came on the device is still illegal for the same reason that unlocking a smartphone is illegal � it requires changes to the firmware, which are copyright protected.

      Ah, but an EULA is not law. It is not illegal, it is just something the company looks down upon. You yourself never reverse engineer any closed source software in the process, you only install an OFW onto your own console.

      Rooting my Android phone is not illegal either. Android is OSS. :P

      The fact that you ran an update that you weren't supposed to: a) have; b) be able to run without modifications that go against their TOS; c) only is supposed to work on non-commercial versions of the hardware, is not grounds for a lawsuit by any stretch of the imagination.

      An EULA can be used in court. You signed it, therefore you agree to abide by its contents, BUT it is not law. It can be thrown out in court if it infringes upon the rights of the consumer too much.

      This is not a case of warranty, this is a manufacturer breaking your console because you have done something to it they do not like. Akin to a car manufacturer breaking your engine because you replaced your stock intake with one from a better model of the same car.

      If you are converted well...**** this is if you converted to DEX are you enjoy it? I guess the response is YES.

      Great analogy! Perfect, even! See, if you have to modify your engine completely for the new intake to work, and then the new intake -- for whatever reason -- happens to break your car, you cannot sue the car company either, because you have used a part that wasn't made to be used with your model. Not to mention, that you previously have signed a EULA which clearly states that you shan't modify the car, which secures their position even more. And that's leaving out the part where you weren't even supposed to have the new intake, because it's not meant to be for the consumer market.

      All Sony would have to do, is show that the change that bricks CEX2DEX consoles has some sort of purpose -- no matter how minor -- for legitimate DEX consoles, and they would be completely in the clear.

      No matter how you twist and turn it, this is far from lawsuit grounds.

      It is a great analogy. Because I am not talking about the part breaking the engine, but the manufacturer itself doing it.

      we don't stuck

      i can revert back to cex from dex in 10mnt

      i have all needed firmware in my console 4.25DEX,355OFWDEX, 3.55MFW.DEX, KMEAWCFW, COBRA, 4.21CEX Rogero, 4.21 MonsterCFW,

      i can switch to any firmware i want

      So, if i want to play a game, like AC3, with the 4.25, i still need to download a patch and make my own fix, or this firmware allow me to play the game normally without a pkg fix and download the update via psn?

      Cuz if i still need to make may own fix, what's the point in updating?

      You still have to make ur pkg(which isnt always available) and use the usb to load a game. I really dont see any point of 4.25 unless you want to play with a disc.

      Not useless. Ive got a lot of enjoyment after all. Its just that I couldnt use psn awhile back for the games i wanted because I couldnt run any thing besides games from my usb. The switching by pc makes things a lil lame and the switching between fw's time consuming. Lastly rogero can do alot without the pc hassle and fw switching. I really hope I can find a tut to DEX -> CEX.

      Ahh.. I get it then but I did read something that SONY implemented a security measure in 4.30 that detects fake dex consoles and brick them, which would leave 4.25 being the last fw useable for DEX. So Ill have to DEX -> CEX eventually. Why wait?

      No, I am saying you go to the dealership and they break your car because you installed something they do not like.

      Also, no, it's not the part that breaks it, that's usually just the dealer trying to get out of repairing you car for free under warranty.

      Yeah, i did CEX->DEX like, two months ago, and now i'm ****ing my pants to do a DEX->CEX, cuz i don't have a dongle to desbrick the console.

      yeah maybe...who knows can be cracked by scene devs...anyways as you said why do we have to wait till that...first we need a stable 4.21 cex cfw bro...and we are able to play most of new games in 4.25 itself..so atleast for me it's safe to stay in dex for quite sometime...

      In that case it's a completely faulty analogy.

      In your analogy the "dealership" sells parts for your model, and for different models, which -- if you modify your car extensively -- are compatible with yours. However, their newest accessory, after replacing the old one, breaks your engine. How is that the dealership's fault? They do everything in their power, so you cannot install said part, because of possible incompatibility issues. It's the part, that you shouldn't install into your car, that breaks it. Whether that part intentionally is made to harm your engine or not, doesn't matter, as it doesn't work on your car without modifying it in a way that goes against the EULA you have signed. The dealership is at absolutely no fault here. You not only install something that shouldn't be there, but also have to circumvent protections that don't allow you to install that part. No company in the world would be at fault here, and going back to the initial reason for my involvement in this conversation, no court in the world would rule against them. And this time the courts actually would act for common sense, not against it.

      Yes, thanks for the release.
      still on 4.11 but good to know I can update to 4.25 DEX.
      Love my DEX, don�t know why there�s so much hate to DEX users.
      Now with 4.21 + 4.3 CFW and new 3.55 fixes, everyone can join in on the fun.

      [MENTION=247939]franzke[/MENTION] , lol your a wanker and a pussy. what exactly can you do or play on your CEX that we can�t do on DEX? there�s always the option to go back to CEX but I�m staying DEX.

      There's lots of info.

      It's not a matter of breaking the OFW, it's a matter of getting a PS3 that hasn't been hacked that verifies the signature of a signed firmware.

      Any CFW will not have a signature from Sony so it won't install.

      The signature isn't in the firmware, only a public key that verifies it is signed by who it says it is.

      The signing key can't be calculated with the public key used to verify it is what it says it is.

      So, not possible to install.

      We have signing keys for firmware up to 3.55 because Sony made a mistake that has since been fixed - PERMANENTLY.

      This is why we can install CFW on a 3.55 PS3, because we have the signing key that it will accept and can trick the PS3 into thinking it is a genuine Sony firmware. After this firmware version, the signing key changed and we - EVEN NOW - cannot calculate it.

      We can decrypt the firmware, but a console on OFW is still locked and expects the signing present that we don't - and never will have.


      There is NO hope so don't go further with this, it's based on basic cryptography principles created over 20 years ago that to this day have not been broken. If you're interested in satisfying your doubt instead of accepting my answer, look up the term "private public key encryption" on google. Please search first in future because this has been the most asked question in the past 2 months or so.
