    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: Select REBUG-TOOLBOX-02.xx.xx.pkg

    SYSTEM

    SYSTEM INFORMATION:
    Displays Firmware version, Toolbox version, IP address, current LV2 Kernel and Target ID type and free HDD space.

    QUIT:
    Quits Toolbox and returns you to PS3 XMB.
    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    CEX/DEX (REX EDITION ONLY)

    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 found in the UTILITIES menu 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.

    UTILITIES

    TOGGLE QA:
    Enable/Disable QA flag. This option is only available in REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION as we are not able to set QA token at the moment from GameOS on higher firmware.
    TOGGLE RECOVERY MODE:

    Enable/Disable Recover Mode flag. When enabled your PS3 will reboot into Recovery Mode.
    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.x REX EDITION for safety reasons.
    LOAD LV2 KERNEL:

    Load lv2_kernel.self.[KERNEL_NAME] from USB or /dev_hdd0
    RESIZE VFLASH/NAND REGIONS:

    Resize VFLASH/NAND Region 5 to allow install of OtherOS.
    INSTALL PETITBOOT:

    Install Petitboot to VFLASH/NAND Region 5 from USB.
    SET GAMEOS BOOT FLAG:

    Sets the GameOS boot flag. Use this if your PS3 is having trouble booting PS2 titles after running OtherOS or is accidently sending you back to OtherOS when trying to enter recovery mode.
    CREATE PACKAGES FOLDER ON PS3:

    Create /dev_hdd0/packages folder or your PS3 to be used with Package Manager.
    EXPORT HYPERVISOR LV1 MEMORY:

    Save LV1 memory to dev_usb000 or dev_usb006 or dev_hdd0 if usb is not found.
    EXPORT GAMEOS LV2 MEMORY:

    Save LV2 memory to dev_usb000 or dev_usb006 or dev_hdd0 if usb is not found.
    EXPORT FLASH TO FILE:

    Backup your current NOR/NAND to file on dev_usb000. Takes about 45secs for NAND
    CHANGE ACTIVE PS3ID:

    Spoof IDPS in LV2 memory. Choose from Use EID0 or Use EID5. EID5 will spoof your original CEX IDPS allowing you to connect to PSN if your PS3 is running REBUG REX EDITION firmware in DEX mode. This option is only available in REBUG 4.21.x REX EDITION and below at the moment.

    OTHER TOOLBOX FEATURES:
    • L3 changes clock/temperature display
    • L2+R2 enable screensaver
    • START+R2 take a raw rgb screenshot
    • Remote-play via PSP/PSVITA
    • Auto-turn-off if idle for 1 hour
    • Telnet to PS3 ip at port: 8080
    • FTP access with writable dev_flash mounted as dev_rebug (port: 21, user: anonymous, password: (anything))

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    QA SUPPORT

    QA is supported in all REBUG FIRMWARE 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.x 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.

    REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER

    INSTALL:
    From XMB install REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER 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.x AND HIGHER can be uninstalled with the same or higher firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW or with REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION on a QA enabled PS3 or with the ’999′ DOWNGRADER if QA was NOT enabled.
    REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION

    INSTALL:
    From XMB install REBUG 3.55.x 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.

    UNINSTALL:
    From XMB REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION can be uninstalled with the same or higher firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW.

    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.x REX EDITION or from Recovery Mode with any other 3.55 OFW/CFW/MFW.

    Enjoy

    It's not really clear if you can upgrade 4.21.1 Rex to 4.21.2 Rex directly or do you have to downgrade to 3.55 first? I'm thinking of going to rebug 4.30.1 and if that's not to my liking back to 4.21.2 Rex. So to upgrade from Rebug 4.21.1rex to Rebug 4.30.1 direct is ok? It's QA flagged already.

    Just want to stay with a Rebug firmware as they are great but would like that 4.30 compatibility that 4.21 is missing.

    Doesn't really matter as its so hot today I'm not game to turn on the ps3 and there is no way ill be updating it in this heat. Is 40c degrees here ATM.

    Today my daughter wanted to play the xbox360. Never wants to play it any other day except for the hottest day if the year. I'm not even going to turn it on as they are so unreliable in hot weather. At least the PS3 can turn on and be used at little things and still be ok but the 360 dies at the fist sign of heat. Today is the 2nd day of 40. I'm hoping it gets cooler tomorrow.

    My first 60gb PS3 died on a hot day when PlayTV turned it on automatically and tried to record a show. It did record and turned off like normal but it overheated in the process and YLOD at next turn on. Days like this are Vita and 3DS gaming days as they usually won't die on hot days.

    Better put something about Rebug here to stay on topic. I think it will be ok to go from Rebug 4.21.1 to Rebug 4.30.1 as they usually test them out before and I've done things like that in the past and its all gone good. Going from Rebug to Rogero I would go back to 3.55 but Rebug to Rebug should go fine.

    I'll be trying to out when it cools down and I turn on the PC to get the new firmwares and the Ps3 is cool enough to turn on and not die.

    StanSmith, there is no need to downgrade back to 3.55, just enable QA Flag. There is also no need to use the 9.99 downgrader if you want to get back to 3.55 Rebug. I enabled the Debug System update and while I default 3.55.4 Rebug I upgrade to 4.30.1 when I want to play a game that lacks 3.55 fix.

    Oh, btw, I doubt temperature is much of an issue, PS3 can get much hotter than 40ΊC. I live in Brazil, pretty much everyday is 36ΊC+ and I already left my PS3 on for 3 days once.

    How do we enable QA flag? Via toolbox. 2.0? I heard that option is NA on 4.21 rex

    Oh just updated from 4.21 to 4.30. It went well, but now I have singstar icon in Game category and I absolutely hate it and want it gone. Any help?

    That singstar is part of 4.30. I got that on my OFW PS3 too and it sucks. There should be way to edit the xmb file to get rid of that but I'm not too good at editing them so I dont know how to do it.

    I just kept the edited ones last time I made a MFW via that PS3MFW creator. They are for 3.55 but they still work in 4.21 so they should still work in 4.30, I'm hoping they do. I've removed everything from the PSN tab and I move MultiMan there so when I have "Show Whats New on bootup" turned on it boots up directly to MM.

    Well, now that I've moved from MM to Iris it now goes directly to that instead.
