Has anybody done this?
first / its compatible with all 3.55 nor ps3 kmeaw and normal rogero not trueblue and (not tested for nand it may work too)
great hackers uncharted and blackcoto may tell us
second / please de hash you console before starting this guide only (if you have downgraded previously) to prevent problems later
This can be done by using factory service mode or using qa flag(i cant explain this point now i will make tutorial later for it)
by the name of the god we start
1-download this rars contains all files we need in this tutorial and the frimware of dex 4.20

2-unrar ronaldyo85 and put all files you found on ps3 folder on your usb from outside not in any folders
3-unrar PS3UPDAT.PUP and make on your usb 2 folderS(TURN ON CAPSLOCK) FIRST NAME IT PS3 and another inside it name it update put PS3UPDAT.PUP on it
4-put your usb in your ps3 and install memDump 0.01 - 4.04.03 MultiMan- eEID_RKDumper
5-turn on memdump and choose Dump Flash Storage ( wait untill it finished and it return to main menu ) then press start to logout from program (by this way you take a copy of your ps3 flash on your usb)
6-turn on eEID_RKDumper (to get your ps3 keys) wait for seconds you will see blackscreen and hear peep then it will turn off (succeeded)
7-turn on your ps3 and go to multimans file manager(Select+Start) and go to dev_hdd0/temp and copy eid_root_key to your usb (it is your key)then log out from multiman
8-put your usb on your computer you will found 2 files first one flash_stor_35500.bin (you must make bakeup for it to return any time to cex) and the second file eid_root_key (contains your keys)
9-take those 2 files and put them in folder pc/CEX2DEXV1.0 (when extracted ronaldyo85 rar)
10-change eid_root_key name to dump then turn on program CEX2DEX and choose the root of flash_stor_35500.bin in first column and dump for the second colmun then press CEX->DEX
(see last thing wrote in progam if you found something like CMAC errors it means somethig wrong in dump file and you will repeat steps on the top )
11-if every thing go alright as it Expected you will choose location to save converted usb(save in your usb) and
(it prefer to name it my-DEX-flash.EID0.NORBIN to easy recognized by multiman)
12-put your usb on your ps3 and go to multimans file manager and locate my-DEX-flash.EID0.NORBIN on your usb and double click on it and follow every thing will show to you
and after process complete logout of multiman and turn off system by holding ps button
13-turn on your ps3 and install frimware from Settings / System Update / Update Via Storage Media
(lightyear tell me it is more safe to do last step on his tutorial boot to recovery and install rogero's dex pup ) http://www.mediafire.com/?chu2t6sofr8u18m
14-congratulations you change your ps3 to dex in 10-15 minutes without installing linux

Has anybody done this?
so you do not need a factory service mode dongle to do this?
So when you say "13-turn on your ps3 and install frimware from Settings / System Update / Update Via Storage Media" you talking about which firmware here ? And we dnt have to go to factory mode ?
yes but to be on safe side boot to recovery and install first rogero's dex firmware ( http://www.mediafire.com/?chu2t6sofr8u18m )
because It has anti-bricking measures that no other dex firmware does then install any frimware you want .
here is 4.21 dex if any one want it ( http://www.mediafire.com/?a2qnrqr1k4o271n )
This is a great tutorial. I did it last night and am now on Rogero's 3.55 DEX with no problems. The only problem I ran into during the tut was not being able to open the "my-DEX-flash.EID0.NORBIN" file in Multiman at first, but this was my own fault. I thought I was already on the newest version but I was actually on 4.04.02. Once I updated, it opened fine. Thanks a lot for a great tutorial! Now I'm just trying to read up on switching between firmwares before I upgrade to 4.21 DEX. Seems pretty standard aside from the one extra PUP you have to install before downgrading back to 3.55 DEX.
From what I understand upgrading is just installing the higher firmware? And I've read this one about the downgrade from 4.20 DEX: "[tut]how to downgrade to 3.55dex from 4.20dex and use multiman to play backups". My only question is whether you can downgrade directly to Rogero instead of using the one listed in that tut, or do you have to first downgrade to the one listed and then go back to the Rogero 3.55 DEX. I'm on that now and would prefer using that for the downgrade if possible. Thanks.

1-you must first install 3.55downgradepup now you will be on 3.55DEX (do that from xmb not recovery to avoid format )
2-Next install itskamel'sDEXPUP (rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP) or rogero ( from xmb too )
Ok I got it now thanks. Yeah I knew I had to run the downgrade pup, but I was confused on whether I had to use itskamel'sDEXPUP or if I could just use Rogero after that. Thanks for clearing that up. I'll be trying the upgrade/downgrade soon. Then I just have to conquer running DEX backups. (Can't wait to play NHL 13) Thanks again for your help. Cheers!
