    Hello, i have a working ps3 cechc04 (software emulation) and i was wondering which is the best firmware version i could install.
    I don't need to go online because i have my other ps3 slim and i would like to have the best ps2 emulation experience possible.
    Also is better cex or dex?

    Rebug 4.84.2 without a doubt. DEX is only for developers and shitheads who mod online, it's not recommended to use DEX if you are not a dev.

    They both use the same emulator CEX & DEX. It also hasn't been updated in like 5 years so just pick one you like and use it they all offer the same experience. @kozarovv made a few patches for a game(s) to make them run on a CECHC that didn't work before but maybe he can help with more info on that.

    Still waiting for the Ratchet and Clank Series to work properly on a CECHC04, although it never will

    Thanks for the replies guys
    But why is not better using an old firmware that is lighter so it does stress less?
    I am worried because i have just reballed the GPU and i don't want it to break again

    My advice, get rid of that console ASAP, reballing and reflowing (although very different things) will never be a permanent fix and it's just a matter of time until your console dies again. Sell it and get a full BC CECHA or CECHB console, you will not regret it.

    I am from Italy so it is very difficult to find a cecha or b, also very expensive.
    I have bought this ps3 with very little money (5 euros) and then i spend some to do the reballing (50 euros).
    I think that the consoles that you can find on ebay have been already reballed because they are very old so it is more probable that they have failed in the past

    People can mod online on CEX. It's not exclusive to DEX based only CFW's. They are just as many mods out there for CEX as there are DEX now. Quite a few DEX mods can be used on CEX as well.

    Also REBUG REX/D-REX CFWs are made from 95% "DEX" firmware. So even if you have it set to CEX > ie Target ID & Lv2 Kernel, you are technically still using a DEX based CFW.

    Only REBUG Lite CFW's are 100% CEX.
