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.

Does these CFW run Debug NPDRM selfs just like real debug units do? I mean... could I sign elfs as debug selfs (not by using geohot signing tools) and run it from a package?

Geohot signed packages do install on Kmeaw CFW 3.55 and the EBOOT.BIN runs fine, but when trying to load another .self with that OR whe trying to access a .sprx module (also geohot signed) I got 80029530 error (probaly invalid key).

When trying to do the same thing with debug signed packages, it does return a 80029519 error (using a development self - that means.. debug self) in a retail console.

I would like to know if this Rebug CFW 3.55 can run debug packages and selfs just like a real debug unit.

Before asking, the .sprx is a user .sprx built along with the .self or EBOOT.BIN, and packed together in a pkg.

Thanks in advance for any information.

i found a way to sign in using this if you change your menu to the rebug menu and going into the debug settings and change the network enviroment from np to sp-int and reset the ps3 make a new user on your ps3, and you can sign in using the quick sign up and sign in but there is an wrror code if you access the store.
