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.

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

  • 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

Guys make sure you enable QA before installing Rebug 4.41.1 because you wouldn't be able to install pkgs after updating if you're not QA'd.

Issue resolved, Rebug 4.41.2 up...

i meant upgrading hdd with this cfw w/o downgrading as its said with rogero 4.4, with rogero's cfw all it has to be done is upgrade hdd reinstall same or higher cfw and thats it,so is it simple same with rebug's cfw?..

What do you mean? if you're just switching out HDDs you can toss any old thing in there and as long as you have an update handy it'll be fine.

If you mean HDD Exchange, it's still there if you have QA enabled. Just have to access the debug menu with the button combo. When I tried it on 4.21 it screwed up my 'new' drive's free space though, so I'd just use the backup utility, if you have the means.
