REBUG 3.55.3 and 4.21.1 REX EDITIONS and ’999′ DOWNGRADERIt has been a long time since the last firmware release, mainly because we did not see a reason to keep releasing cfw after cfw just to changes files in ‘dev_flash’.  We wanted the next release to be something different and we are quietly confident it is.

The first thing users of previous REBUG firmware will notice is the old Rebug Selector has been given a complete overhaul and facelift based off of the multiMAN XXMB engine.  We added quite a few features and it has now earned itself a new name Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00 but we will explain the toolbox later in more depth.  Right now….

We give you REBUG 3.55.3 and 4.21.1 REX EDITIONS and the ’999′ DOWNGRADER.  All the features listed below are in ALL firmware versions unless stated otherwise.

PACKAGE MANAGER

Package Manager is a replacement for the standard Install Package Files option under Game in the XMB. It allows for the install and deletion of .pkg files from dev_hdd0/packages, dev_usb/packages and the standard Install Package Files locations. In addition to this, your downloaded PSN content ‘bubbles’ will appear under this option instead of cluttering your Game menu with uninstalled content.

USAGE:
Navigate to Game in your XMB and click on Package Manager (It will be where Install Package Files usually is). You will find three options.

PlayStation®Network Content
Manage your downloaded PlayStation®Network Content.

Install Package Files
INSTALL package files from Storage Devices and your PS3.

PS3 Hard Disk (dev_hdd0/packages)
Package Folder (dev_usb/packages)
Standard Package Location (Standard Install Package Files locations)

NOTE: The Install All Packages is only available by pressing the TRIANGLE button when the Standard Package Location option is highlighted because the PS3 will only install ALL packages from the root of a storage device as of the moment.

Delete Package Files
DELETE package files from Storage Devices and your PS3.

PS3 Hard Disk (dev_hdd0/packages)
Package Folder (dev_usb/packages)
Standard Package Location (Standard Install Package Files locations)

DELETING FILES:
1: Highlight the file you would like to delete and press TRIANGLE. The sidebar should appear.
2: Press CROSS on either Unlink or Unlink(Folder) (Both do the same thing for now).

 

REBUG TOOLBOX

Rebug Toolbox is application designed to complete the full function of REBUG REX EDITION firmwares. Besides from performing the CEX/DEX EID0 and LV2 Kernel Swapping it is also an FTP server and is packed with a bunch of other useful tools.

INSTALL:
1: In the PS3 XMB go to Game menu
2: Select Package Manager
3: Select Install Package Files
4: Select PS3 Hard Disk
5: Install REBUG-TOOLBOX-02.00.00.pkg

RESTART SYSTEM:

Perform either a Full or Soft reboot od the PS3 system.

Soft (LV2 Reboot Only)

Full (On/Off Cycle)

Boot OtherOS:

Boot OtherOS with either your currently selected LV1 patches or easily apply ALL LV1 patches and boot.

Boot (LV1 Patches: Apply All)

Boot (LV1 Patches: Use current)

Turn Off System:

Shut down your PS3.

 

SELECTOR

REBUG 3.55.3 and 4.21.1 REX EDITIONS and ’999′ DOWNGRADER
SYSTEM MODE:
Switches between NORMAL and REBUG mode

NORMAL mode which uses the DEBUG XMB is the default mode after installing Rebug.

REBUG mode sets the PS3 to the latest available version spoof (updatable in the future) and allows swapping between RETAIL and DEBUG XMB in addition to switching between the two different Debug Menu Types menus DEX (debug) and CEX QA (retail).

XMB OPERATION MODE:

This option only works in REBUG mode and lets you select either the RETAIL or DEBUG XMB.

DEBUG MENU TYPE:

Gives you the choice of the CEX QA (retail) or DEX (debug) Debug Settings menu.

 

LV1 PATCHES

REBUG 3.55.3 and 4.21.1 REX EDITIONS and ’999′ DOWNGRADER
A collection of LV1 patches that can be used for better compatibility with some PS3 tools. Any combination of these patches can be applied before booting OtherOS.

 

DEX/CEX

REBUG 3.55.3 and 4.21.1 REX EDITIONS and ’999′ DOWNGRADER

SWAP LV2 KERNEL:
Swaps between CEX and DEX LV2 Kernel. This option will only work if your Target ID is set to DEX

REWRITE TARGET ID IN FLASH:

This option requires you have a valid NOR/NAND dump named correctly on dev_usb000. Use EXPORT FLASH TO FILE function to dump your NOR/NAND to dev_usb000 and then use c2d.exe to convert your dump to DEX.

Rename your original CEX dump to CEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or CEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)
Rename your converted DEX dump to DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb)

Once you have prepared your NOR/NAND dumps place them on a USB device and connect it to dev_usb000.

Now that you have your valid dumps named properly and connected to dev_usb000 it is a simple as selecting the option and following the onscreen prompts. Takes less than 10secs once you have your dumps prepared.

EXPORT FLASH TO FILE:

Backup your current NOR/NAND to file on dev_usb000. Takes about 45secs for NAND

TOGGLE PRODUCT MODE:

Enable/Disable Product Mode flag. When enabled your PS3 will reboot into Factory Service Mode. This option is only available in REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION for safety reasons.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

QA SUPPORT

QA is supported in all REBUG REX EDITIONS but at this point in time we are unable to set the QA Token from GameOS on 3.55+ firmware.

It is good practice to enable QA in 3.55 before updating to any CFW not just REBUG.

 

OTHEROS++ SUPPORT

OtherOS++ is supported by all REBUG REX EDITIONS and will detect your existing OtherOS HDD partition.

However none of the REBUG REX EDITIONS have emer_init.self patched (create smaller GameOS partition). We are working on a solution to this from GameOS.

In the meantime if you do want to create an OtherOS partition you have two options:

1: Use a 3.55 firmware that already has emer_init.self patched to the size you want.
2: Patch REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION in PS3MFW Builder

If you choose option 2 we highly recommend that you ONLY patch emer_init.self. Also the resulting PUP will only be able to be installed on 3.55 firmware as the spkg_hdr will be mismatched.

One final thing to note about OtherOS on 4.21.1 is that it function is slightly reduced at the moment due to the fact that we are not able to map memory like in 3.55 and below. The affected modules are ps3ram and ps3sbmmio.

Hopefully this problem can be addressed without having to release another firmware.

 

REBUG 4.21.1 REX EDITION

INSTALL:
From XMB install REBUG 4.21.1 REX EDITION over any 3.55 OFW/CFW/MFW or the same or lower firmware version CFW with spkg sig check patched or any firmware version CFW with spkg sig check patched and QA enabled.

UNINSTALL:
From XMB REBUG 4.21.1 REX EDITION can be uninstalled with the same or higher firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW or with REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION on a QA enabled PS3 or with the ’999′ DOWNGRADER if QA was NOT enabled.

REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION

From XMB install REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION over the same or lower firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW or any firmware version CFW/MFW with spkg sig check patched and QA enabled.

REBUG ’999′ DOWNGRADER

THIS WILL SET YOUR SYSCON COREOS VERSION TO 9.99 ON PURPOSE: DO NOT PANIC

REQUIRES SYSCON DEHASHING AFTER DOWNGRADE

INSTALL:

From XMB install ’999′ DOWNGRADER over any firmware version CFW/MFW with spkg sig check patched on a PS3 with or without QA enabled.

UNINSTALL/DEHASH: REQUIRES PS3 TO BE QA ENABLED
From XMB ’999′ DOWNGRADER can be uninstalled/dehashed with the REBUG 3.55.3 REX EDITION or from Recovery Mode with any other 3.55 OFW/CFW/MFW.

I don't think using the downgrader as thats just downgrading from 4.21 to 3.55,but you can swap between CEX and Dex LV2 Kernel.

A lot too read there and play with lol.
