    Hello,

    Can u directly upgrade from HEN 4.85 to a Dex ps3? Used HEN for 2 weeks now, but it's annoying that you can't use CCAPI and other stuff.

    All help is appreciated

    No, you need a CFW compatible PS3 and using REBUG REX to convert to DEX on retail PS3's or buy a DECH PS3.

    Okey Thanks, exactly what i thought.
    So i'll just go from HFW to CFW and after that i'll do the thing with the rebug toolbox?

    Has it a high risk to get banned?

    Only if your PS3 can install CFW which is any PS3 with minimum factory fw version of 3.56 and below. which is basically CECHA - CECH2500 < certain models of 2500 are above 3.56 so are not CFW compatible.

    CECH3000 - CECH4000 are non-CFW compatible PS3's and can only run HEN. IF you try to install CFW on a Non-CFW PS3 you WILL brick it.

    What model is your PS3..? CECH....?

    This PS3 may or may not be CFW compatible. You will need to run what's called MinVerChk to see if your PS3 is capable of using CFW.

    If you go to this site http://ps3xploit.com/ the select Flash Writer, then Download MinVer PUP.

    Then basically use it like you would have to install HFW from the XMB, put on USB formatted to FAT32 MBR in PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP, then go to update in the systems setting and update via Storage Media and it will tell you what your PS3's min downgradable version is, you want it to say 3.56 or below, anything above 3.56 and it's a no go.

    if he's already on HEN, there's also an option on the hen settings called "Show minimum version" (or something like that) that will pop-up a message on the screen with the min ver for upgrade. (e.g. on the super-slim I use for development, it shows "4.60")

    Forgot that was in HFW Tools. My HEN PS3 only really gets used for blurays or LAN gaming, I mostly use my 2 CFW PS3's and this is also in CFW Tools as well.

    I may be wrong but I believe it is cech 2503 and lower that can do cfw. Definitely check you minver before trying to use flash writer!

    You should check all slims with MinVerChk, not just these models. Just incase its a refurb and its had a MB swap with a later non-cfw version for whatever reason.

    that check for minverchk is also in cfw (probably in the same spot if we're talking about the network column). however, it will give incorrect information if you change the idps to a different sku. @bitsbubba found that out a while back. the 8th byte relays the info. I don't know if that's how minverchk works though.
