First we dropped a tutorial on how to convert your CEX files to DEX and now, thanks to PS3 developer andbey0nd it may have gotten a little easier.
Thanks to the PS3 developer andbey0nd who has released a method of converting CEX to DEX it has gotten easier to switch your 16mb NOR PS3 to a new level of modification. Basically what this is going to do is change your retail PS3 into a Debug version and you will have access to so much more potential of your PS3, but be warned this is not something you should try to do if you are new to the scene or are remotely uncomfortable with Progskeet or E3 Flasher. So if you’re still interested you will find the quote from andbey0nd and the download below, enjoy.
