The CEX2DEX application will allow you to extract the METLDR from ANY (NOR / NAND) PlayStation 3 flash dump and create a valid DEX (Debug / Test) flash from the given CEX (Retail) flash.

In addition to the download, Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) is required


*Can be used to extract the METLDR from ANY (NOR/NAND) flash dump.
*Can be used to create a valid DEX flash from any given CEX flash (NOR/NAND).

Extract METLDR – This extracts the metldr from your flash dump so you can use this in the metldrpwn exploit and dump your root key. The dump file created by the metldrpwn exploit can then be loaded into the program (METLDR Dump).

CEX -> DEX – This creates a modified flash dump to convert your CEX into a DEX, the dump created can then be used to be flashed back to your PS3.

You might be getting CMAC errors because you are attempting to use the extracted metldr as the metldr dump. These are two completely different files, the METLDR Dump is the dump file produced by the metldrpwn exploit.

Latest Version : r1

Release Date: 2012/07/18
