I received a test and I would like to change out the drive to a larger one. It already on a 4.x version with Rebug. Do I need to use the 3.55 downgrade pup? I tried it and it says No Applicable update found. If I try the rebug firmware, it just says a serious issue has occurred.
It's a PHAT PS3 Test.

Any firmware I try to use, it says it isn’t for this ps3. Someone mentioned on discord to just use the build in feature. I’m going to try that. Thanks!

Not sure if what you're requiring is different from what I did, but here's that thread:


Basically I just popped in a bigger HDD.

Thanks for posting this. It doesn’t like any of the firmware files I’ve tried. It says I can use any 2.x or higher. Almost starting to think there is something wrong with my kit. I’ve tried OFW 3.55, 3.55 downgrade firmware, and the debug firmware.

For some reason I couldn't install rebug, so I'm afraid I'm no help in this regard.

Have you tried the Rebug firmware 4.84.2 D-REX? This is the newest firmware the 4.85.1 is a lite firmware this is a cex firmware. And have you ever tested another USB port to install the firmware.It does not matter which firmware but it must be a d-rex firmware.
So I also exchanged the hard disk on my decr-1400a to 1tb and was able to install the firmware without problems.
Folder on the stick PS3 / UPDATE / PS3UPDAT.PUP And if it doesn't work, try using the Target Manager to update your firmware.

Thanks. I’ll try that. Is it worth getting a tool?

Yes the temps alone are much better i have 52 cpu 46 rsx if i play over 1 hour with the standart fan speed.

DECR-1000 - Final development kit. About 2U in height, rackmountable. Features 6 USB ports, two of the ports are marked for the "rear" , to simulate the missing rear USB ports on the retail PS3. Like all of the other TOOL Prototypes (DEH) feature 2X HDMI ports, 3X LAN ports (+1 DEV LAN), AV multi out + VGA out. However, 2nd HDMI port, and 2 of the lan ports are covered. But, features analog audio outputs! Also has 512MB of system memory.

DECR-1400A - Newest kit, DECR-1400a use the casing from a CECHBxx PS3, has 512MB system ram vs the TEST's 256MB.
Has 2X LAN connectors, one for the PS3, one for DEV) / 4USB Ports.

You can play with both ps2 games if you have installed rebug there is a special firmware for the consoles. You can switch between dex and decr xmb in the Rebug Toolbox. With the dex xmb you can play ps2 games.I mostly use my decr-1400a for debug builds because it has more ram than a retail ps3 or test ps3.

Thanks for your response about the tool. I think I'll grab one.

I've tried just putting the 4.82.2 D-REX firmware on a thumb drive, and the same thing. To verify if's a real Test, I was able to disable HDCP. Not sure if that's a good way, but I read that is a way to verify.
