Interesting Rebug issue (can't downgrade, or update)
So, I've been running 4.21 Rex for a while now, love the firmware.
Unfortunately, my BD drive got unmarried somewhere along the way from 3.55 to 4.21. I've been trying to figure out how to get my ps3 to DOWNGRADE to 3.55 again. I believe i successfully QA toggled on 3.55, but 4.21 can't show me that. (recovery asks for a firmware 2.50 or later)
Unfortunately, I can't update to 4.30 rebug, or downgrade to 3.55 OFW. My ps3 states that any firmware is corrupt. I'm currently getting error: 8002f828 (though it seems to change depending on settings/update files). Being in recovery mode doesn't matter either.
You stated that you've already downgraded before. Does that mean you've used the 999 Downgrader PUP? If so, you know you were supposed to flash OFW 3.55 after that right?
It's called the 999 downgrader pup because it sets the version somewhere in the firmware to 9.99, which is why you can install it on 4.21/4.30 CFWs in the first place. Flashing OFW 3.55 after that resets your syscon, then you can go to normal rebug 3.55 and set the QA flag.
I'm not sure but setting the qa THEN flashing OFW 3.55 might not work to reset your syscon, which might be why your bd drive got unmarried. You probably have to try flashing the 999 downgrader from Recovery. If nothing works you might need an E3/progskeet.
showing the lowest capable pup via the recovery = dex... verify your changed this via the toolbox and reflash it back to cex/retail before updating etc.. with any cex firmware, if this isn't the case.. weird problem
+ you can check easily for qa flag on 4.21.1/2 etc... if already set, it cant set qaflag but just do the button combo on network settings, if qa flagged the 3 debug settings appear again
Same question here, I'm on Kmeaw 3.55, but have really got to upgrade, but which is better, Rogero 4.30 or Rebug 4.30, does any have an advantage over the other, and what about my PSN games, will they still work, or do I have to resign everything?
i tryed resigning the eboots it still backs me out to the xmb but when i resigned adcade games such as marvel vs capcom 2 it fixed the eboot for me but with old games like Tales of vesperia and tales of graces it didnt do anything but either black screen or xmb anyone having any ideas on how to fix this or sould i just downgrade?
