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

  • 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

Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer bitsbubba made available an Unofficial Rebug Updater (AIO) v2.00 PKG file followed by v2.01 with the changes detailed below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: V2.00 Changelog:

  • 4.55 spoof REX/LITE
  • Ingame Screen Shots (unlike other spoofs)
  • Reworked PlayStationNetwork to PSN renaming (all languages/ more like 4.53/4.55)
  • Removed certs for faster install (since they're the same 4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55)

NOTE: Remember to install REX from "Normal" mode only.

V2.01 Changelog:

  • added option to restore Singstar to the XMB (requested by pg90)
  • reworked the icon a little

From evilsperm: We are still alive. Just have been busy paying bills, and yes WTF_Rebug we will do what ever the fck we want and not adhere your schedule... So unless you start paying our bills shut the fck up

Also realize no one helps us financially, so when a system goes down we replace it on our own dime. We are currently down to 1 system each so if one dies on us we/you are fuct because I know I'm not buying another system again as I have too many bills to pay, and I am positive the same goes for cyberskunk. So sit back relax and wait for our release or go move to some other firmware.

We were going to release 4.53 but got caught up actually fixing all the cobra patches "Correctly" along with a host of other features. Then just when thing were looking like they were finished 4.55 was released...

So now everything has to be re-patched re-tested and some things need to be tweaked again, then it will be time for a release, but we are not going to release something halfassed.

Remember that Rebug innovates and everyone making CFW these days uses Rebug patches not the other way around... So once we have the features we want in there and its working to perfection, only then will there be a release. Sorry that I can not give you all an ETA on a release date

Is the vsh.self patched to enable the screenshot function ? And will load custom prx in dex mode too ? Last question is do you release 4.53 ?

Yes.. Yes and Yes. The only thing that will not be working on release is DVD/BD ISO's when in DEX mode.. PSX, PS3, PS2, PSP ISO's are all working in both CEX/DEX modes. I don't want to say much more..

It was just a simple miscommunication between evilsperm and myself as I had not decided on what road I was going to take.. Work has started on 4.55 but I am finishing 4.53. The only thing that is not running in DEX mode is DVD/BD ISO. (Which we are not going to worry about for the moment).

Finally, from Smhabib: GREAT WORK!!!

You might wanna have a look.I updated stage0,1,2 but i get this:

Stage 1 hello.
Flash mounted
Payload size = 90344
Calling stage 2...
Stage 2 says hello (load base = 0x8000000000500000, end = 0x80000000005160e8) (version = 0104550F)
Map path: /app_home -> /dev_usb000
OK
PROCESS /dev_flash/sys/internal/sys_init_osd.self (01000200) loaded
Storage event: 9 0 101000000000006

I also get multiple random events which aren't true at all. I have already ported cobra, so I know what I'm talking about. You might be able to check it. What I guess is that it is problem of lv2 of 4.55 just fix a missing piece of the puzzle and we have a cobra cfw without ps2 functionality (for now) I get black screen with stage2 and ps3 boots fine without stage2.bin.

Hi misiozol, thanx for the reply but I manage to put a new termal paste and the RSX become lower 64-68*C and CPU was 64-74*C and sometime it drop to 72*C on CPU. I check on the Toolbox and for 10mins the CPU was good 72*C and no shutdown but after choose games on multiman and start any games the issue still the SAME..

It start and worst not even can play it ASD and restart again CPU was still the same 70*C-72* and start again any new game worst it will ASD..

Could it be the Firmware ? I now using REBUG 4.46 Lite and latest multiman and still ASD but if I use 3.55 kmeaw it was good no ASD so now I was thinking can REBUG firmware and change to ROGERO 4.40 ?

Is there any step to do it if can ?

thanx

Smells like YLOD is creeping on you , hurry and change thermal paste, 78*C on cpu that is very high, typical is 65-70*C RSX , 68-72*C CPU. As far rebug/rogero 4.46 no problems they are very stable.

Hi Guys,

Anyone having problem with old games and new games recently ? I having problem with new CFW Rebug 4.46.1 Lite.

Playing Sleeping Dogs and it Auto Shutdown suddenly after 30mins of playing. Splinter Cell Blacklist worst after the demo press start it AUTO SHUTDOWN. PES 2014 aslo same press start it auto shutdown.

Before upgrade to cfw 4.46.1 Lite using 3.55 Kmeaw I have no issue with it. All games I play have no Autoshutdown only Splinter and PES2014 cannot play on 3.55 so that I upgrade and having this issue...

Is there a way to fix this autoshut down function ? I have no idea what is wrong and now I cannot even play Splinter Cell and PES 2014.. I download the fix for both games and update 1.01 to test aslo same it got ASD too..

Btw I check the TEMP it RSX 72% and CPU 78% does it normal or too hot ? I even put a fan behind the PS3.

Thanx for reply..

Btw I not sure about the Multiman could it be Multiman issue ? Is there a new Multiman ?? I using ver 4.46 too
