    Requirements:
    Tutorial:
    1. Dump your CEX flash in multiman:
      To dump flash: mmOS->Select any file->Open in HEX viewer->[SELECT]->[START]->DUMP LV2(NO)->DUMP LV1(NO)->DUMP FLASH(YES) .
    2. Install + Run eEID_RKDumper.pkg then get your eid_root_key from dev_hdd0/tmp .
    3. Load your CEX flash dump and eid_root _key in CEX2DEX to create your DEX flash (if your files dont show when trying to open them in CEX2DEX type *.* and all files will show).
      (For NOR flash rename it to my-DEX-flash.EID0.NORBIN , for NAND my-DEX-flash.EID0.NANDBIN)
    4. Start up Multiman (the version linked above in thread only) and press X twice on your new DEX dump, select yes 3 times and it will be installed. Reboot and install the DEX firmware of your choice (you can choose any OFW DEX firmware available including the 3.55 Downgrader from ps3devwiki, located [Click here to view the link]. Also get Exeedy's 3.55 MFW [Click here to view the link], it has all the CFW features you'll need.
    Notes:
    • You can play retail discs above 3.55 on DEX, and can also run a lot more games than CFW / True Blue.
    • You will lose Blu-ray playback after converting to DEX but it should return after flashing back to CEX
    • All retail discs will work on 4.11 DEX converted console as of today.
