From their site: Both Rebug 3.41.2 and 3.55.1 have all the features you have come to expect from a CFW/MFW plus Package Manager, Rebug Selector and all the debug features of the last Rebug release and none of the bugs.

There is also a new directory in dev_flash called rebug which has another directory in it packages. It is in this directory that you will find Rebug_Selector_1.2.pkg and BDEMU.pkg (3.55) or Hermes_V4C_Rebugged.pkg (3.41). These can be installed using the PS3 HDD option in Package Manager.

INSTALL: Rebug 3.41.2 and 3.55.1 can be installed over the same version OFW/CFW/MFW on any model PS3 through the XMB or Recovery Mode and Rebug 3.41.2 can be installed in Service Mode if needed to downgrade OFW 3.50.

UNINSTALL: Rebug 3.41.2 and 3.55.1 can be uninstalled with the same version OFW/CFW/MFW on any model PS3 through the XMB or Recovery Mode.


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 will appear under this menu 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)


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).


Included - Install using PS3 HDD option in Package Manager.

Rebug Selector is a tool for switching XMB and menus. When you run the tool you will see displayed what MODE, XMB and DEBUG MENU you are using. You will also see that AUTO REBOOT is set to OFF - FAST MENU SWITCHING ACTIVE, which means when you choose an option from DEBUG MENU SELECT the PS3 will exit back to the XMB automaticly speeding up the menu switching process. As soon as you choose an option from either MODE SELECT or XMB SELECT the AUTO REBOOT will set to ON - SYSTEM WILL REBOOT ON EXIT and the user must manually exit the tool using the 'ingame XMB' once they are satisfied with their selections. This is so the vsh.self changes can take effect.


Switches between NORMAL and REBUG mode


NORMAL mode is the default mode after installing Rebug. It uses the DEBUG XMB and allows switching between the two different ★Debug Settings menus.

NOTE: NORMAL mode MUST be set if you wish to reinstall official firmware through the XMB.


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 Settings menus.

Press L1+CROSS to set: [NORMAL MODE]
Press L1+CIRCLE to set: [REBUG MODE]


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

Press R1+CROSS to use: [RETAIL XMB]
Press R1+CIRCLE to use: [DEBUG XMB]


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



For use with Package Manager. This option will exit automaticly if AUTO REBOOT is set to off.

Press SELECT to create [dev_hdd0/packages]

NOTE: No matter what XMB or DEBUG MENU you are using, the debug options you have running will remain active.

EXTRA INFO: Rebug Selector DOES NOT copy any files to dev_flash when performing it's tasks, instead it renames (Much safer and much much faster). All the files are already installed on dev_flash and the tool has more than a dozen checks to make sure nothing goes wrong, including a check to see if it is being used on Rebug firmware. Trying to run Rebug Selector on firmware other than Rebug will cause the tool to auto exit before the user gets to make a choice or see anything on the screen at all for that matter.

There are lots of things for you to experiment with and discover so have some fun and don't take things too seriously. It is only a PS3.

Enjoy.. Cyberskunk.

P.S. Look forward to our next release with 'Linux Dualboot'.

Codename: REBUG would like to thank: Geohot, fail0verflow and graf_chokolo (Our thoughts are with you guys) also KaKaRoToKS, Hermes, jjolano, rms, kmeaw, flukes1, netkis, Xtse of course Mathieulh and anyone else that we have forgotten whether they gave us 5minutes or 5hours of their time, WE APPRECIATE IT.

Extra thanks to:

jjolano - Helping with the original Rebug Selector code.
Hermes - Compiling the changes we made to his payload for us.

Our BIGGEST thanks: Mr Anonymous - Helping with the final Rebug Selector but more so without him both 'Codename: REBUG' and 'ps3mfw' might still be trying to sign files properly. You are a legend for fixing the signing tool for us.

I have uploaded an amended privacy patch for the extra files in REBUG so no matter what MODE, XMB or DEBUG MENU you are using it will still be patched.

Add the .tcl file to the tasks folder of PS3MFW Builder 0.2. It will appear as Patch all REBUG self/sprx to secure privacy in the task list.

For those following, from evilsperm of Team Rebug speaking to Dukio: (dukio.com/people-working-retail-psn-support-evilsperm.html):
For the people asking if this will enable retail PSN, it will not so don't ask again

People are working on retail PSN support but we will not be. I feel as many others that CFW and PSN should not be mixed what so ever. You do however have access to the sp-int and prod-qa networks but for how long no one knows.

Some games will work on those networks as long as others are on them as well, so if there are a few thousand people using rebug on sp-int and all playing the same game you just might be able to play each other but this is no guarantee.

I can tell you 100% without a doubt that everyone will abuse the sp-int network and $ony will patch it within a week, it will also really piss off the people with TEST units they got from other channels because then they will be out of luck trying to get on those networks, so PLEASE do not abuse sp-int!

I have found something on nextgen update, when someone copied my post from here about siging in on rebug they are creating new accounts on the sp-int network using the quick signup and "using the sp-int network as a private network that cfw users have been looking for" and they have a list of the psn names that they are using on sp-int and are playing online matches using the sp-int network.

i run that through Charles but its still using the old X-Platform-Passphrase key so no joy getting the new one. Sony had no reason to stop you connecting because you cant play games online and theres not much you can do.. i tried a few methods of trying to send the data to the np server with no luck.

it only signs you into the Debug server thats why you cant login with your username and password and you have to create a new one, if you sign up again with your original username it will let you create it again because its a completely different server to the PSN one.
