999 DOWNGRADER FEATURES

FEATURE – All 3.55.x REX EDITION Features (Firmware is identical)

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

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.

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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

QA SUPPORT - QA is supported in all REBUG FIRMWARE. It is good practice to enable QA for a smoother experience on 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.

REBUG TOOLBOX 02.01.05

  • ADDED – Support up 4.46 CEX/DEX CFW

Rebug Toolbox is application designed to complete the full function of REBUG REX EDITION firmwares but is also compatible with most current 3.55->4.46 CEX/DEX CFW (some options are not available). Besides from performing the CEX/DEX EID0 and LV2 Kernel Swapping it is also a FTP server and is packed with a bunch of other useful tools.

From Cheesethief: This is Rebug 4.46.1 REX with RSOD Bypass, not public unless Cyberskunk released it while I was sleeping: MD5: 031c7318a0998f768236fc727f1582ed.

Below is a Rebug PS3 Theme for those interested along with a demonstration video, as follows:

How to install: Create a file "PS3" on your USB key, in the folder, create au new file "THEME" ans copy the .p3t here. After connect your USB key on your PS3 and instal it in "Settings Theme".

From bitsbubba (via tortuga-cove.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=29929#p29929) comes an Unofficial REBUG Updater (AIO) (linked above) who states: Hey y'all REBUG 4.46.1 REX users I thought I'd put together all of the recent updater like files that I've found or created. I used the installer that we (Team XMBM+) created for XMB Manager Plus.

Updates consist of:

  • Spoof to 4.50 in all modes but 'Normal'
  • Screen Shots in all modes
  • BD Cinavia patch by HABIB
  • Renamed Playstation Network to PSN (XMB and *Package Manager) as per $0nY
  • Renamed Hard Disk (*Package Manager) to System Storage as per $0nY

So now you can feel like you're on 4.50.1 REX until Team REBUG (Cyberskunk, evilsperm) releases the reals... soon

v1.01: Added support REBUG 4.46.1 LITE EDITION

  • Spoof 4.50 (PSN access)
  • Enabled Screenshots (thanks Mysis)
  • Cinavia patched (including BD patch by HABIB)
  • Renamed Playstation Network to PSN (XMB and *Package Manager) as per $0nY
  • Renamed Hard Disk (*Package Manager) to System Storage as per $0nY

v1.02 Changelog:

  • Added 4.50 certs to improve on spoof
  • Sing Star app removal (let me know if works, as I never had app)

Finally, from evilsperm (July 11, 2014): Sup Everyone, To all the fans thanks for the support, to all the leechers/haters you can pretty much go kill yourself and the world will be a much better place.

Real life has caught up to us. I myself have a wife, 2 kids, full time work, bills, bills, more bills, just moved into a new home and renovations going on. Sadly for now I am bowing out of the scene as I have zero free time. Hopefully I will return with more free time in the coming months.

I can not speak for cyberskunk, but I know he has a lot going on right now. I am pretty sure once he gets everything in order he will be continuing his work in the scene, but again I can not speak for him.

All the best,
evil

i have installed it on my CECHL01 seems to be running great! no freezes no crashes so far. i personally am using multiman 4.55 full with no issues.

i wouldn't say this f/w is bs members of rebug stated back in February that 4.53 REX Cobra was basically ready they were just waiting on test reports from team members with a b/c system and recently they stated that they were bowing out of the scene due to life in general and not having time to work on the f/w anymore so i am not surprised that this got leaked.

This f/w is b/s. Look at Rebugs official webpage. Last official release is 4.46. If this is real, its a leak of unfinished work. Anyone install this yet? I dont believe in it at all.

I haven't seen one yet, perhaps it's an update from within the app itself... the latest I'm aware of is MultiMAN v04.60.00 but if anyone runs across it feel free to share a download link and we'll update the main article with it.

According to various reports including details from pauline45, MultiMAN 4.60.1, Showtime, XBMC, PS1iSO, PS2iSO and PS3iSO games are now working including PSPiSOs as follows:

Tested on a CECH-2003a running 3.55 CFW installed no problem on XMB and recovery. Also tried it on the 2503a that was on Habib 4.55 Cobra wouldn't install over it on XMB or recovery. I tried it on a CECHM03 running 3.55 installed no problem from XMB and recovery, so it won't install on on a higher firmware like 4.55 CFW or 4.60 CFW.

Seems to running fine, so far installed IrisMAN and MultiMAN, playing games okay with IrisMAN, but on MultiMAN 4.60.1 black screen. I tried it on a 2504b running Habib 4.53 CFW wouldn't load from XMB data corrupt 8002F169, but I tried in recovery and it loaded on.

So, confirmed working on CECH-2504b, CECH-2003a, and CECHM03 PS3, but got to be below 4.53 or a PS3 on 4.53 CFW. Won't install on 4.55 Habib or Rogero 4.55. Haxxxens Rebug installed over any firmware no problem.

CECHP-phat NOR and CECHQ-phat NOR both working as testing also CECHC- phat NAND and CECHA - phat NAND also working. PS3s was running 3.20 OFW and 3.41 on the four of them, when I installed the CFW 4.53.1 Rebug / Cobra no bricks or freezing. More testing in process with homebrew and other apps.

From BobbyBangin: This is said to be Rebug's official 4.53.1 Cobra firmware. I received this anonymously, so I cannot confirm this.

The firmware is reported to have only one issue, which is the same issue that exists in Rebug 4.46 with Cobra on DEX mode. It'll mess up VSH and start going really slow until it freezes, with Cobra enabled while in DEX. Besides that, it works fine.

You can use the toggles to turn Cobra off, to have working DEX mode. Then turn it back on when in CEX. This will not install over 4.55 or 4.60 CFW. You will need use Rogero's downgrader 3.7 to downgrade ([Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] - Mirror), before installing.

Features:

  • First CFW to include Cobra 7.0.1 features
  • Toolbox version 2.02.00 built in
  • Toggles for Cobra and WEBMAN
  • Rebug mode active in toolbox
  • Auto spoofs to 4.55
  • Working PS, PS2, PS3, PSP ISO's
  • RSOD BYPASS
  • In-Game Screenshot

So far this has been tested and confirmed working on:

  • CECHA01
  • CECHB01
  • CECHC01
  • CECHH02
  • CECHJ01
  • CECHK02
  • CECHL01
  • CECHM03

  • CECH-2001B
  • CECH-2002A
  • CECH-2003A
  • CECH-2003B
  • CECH-2004A
  • CECH-2004B
  • CECH-2102A
  • CECH-2102B

  • CECH-2502A
  • CECH 2503A
  • CECH 2503B
  • CECH-2504A
  • CECH 2504B

There are currently more models in the testing process, BUT A DOWNGRADER IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED BEFORE INSTALLING! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

From pauline45: Rebug 4.53.2u REX Cobra by joonie86 (linked above) as from now I've installed this in 2 slims CECH-2003B and CECH-2504B and 1 phat NAND CECHC and a phat CECHM NOR models firmware is running fine with MultiMAN, showtime and playing PS3iSOs and PS1iSOs and PS2iSOs to with IrisMAN installed and also logged into PSN with 4.60 spoofer no problem, played GTA for 1 hour and also cod ghosts no problems.. all settings in this Rebug working perfect no softbrick on bricking issues.

Also boots up fine XMB if installing use Rogero downgrader to 3.55 and then put on USB stick 3.55 OFW and then install Rebug also this will not install over Habibs 4.55 or Rogero 4.55 so you need to downgrade to 3.55 to install it always make sure you are flagged so you can go up and down CFW without the rick of bricking issues and its always handy to have a flasher handy when checking out firmware. Thanks to joonie86 for the updates on this, as joonie86 posted me:

Just let you know I found one problem: PS2 ISO is working fine in general on both NORMAL/REBUG mode, however, only certain condition, it has an issue with PS2 Emu.

"CEX/Retail XMB Menu" with PS2 ISO combination will give you shutdown, but DEBUG CEX/DEX XMB Menu with PS2 ISO work fine on any condition on both CEX / DEX LV2 Kernels. So this is already good enough.

I may want to fix that little issue later, but this is what I have found so far. This should be the FINAL test version that has NO PROBLEM at all.

Updated Features:

1. newest webman mod 1.30.18 integrated
2. 4.60 Spoof supported via REBUG mode on both CEX/DEX + CEX/Retail XMB
3. PS2/PSP EMU also work fine on both CEX/DEX with 4.60 Spoofed

*RSOD BYPASS is also already applied by Team Rebug, just let you know.

From Joonie86: This FW has missing stage2 for PS2 EMU..

  • ps2gxemu_stage2.bin
  • ps2hwemu_stage2.bin

Normally Cobra FW has 7 files for its complete function while this 4.53 REB+COBRA has only 5+ 1 extra stage2 for DEX kernel.

  • 24aff00b3be561ce17a7c2584dcd99d5 stage2.cex 90.0 KB (92,144)
  • c6f07f9600abcaa002b240c5b8fd6e4d stage2.dex 90.0 KB (92,144)

Can you verify if this FW can load PS2 EMU? I also noticed that this Stage2 is larger than previous Cobra ones, interesting.. I was able to install it over Habib 4.55 Cobra 1.03 on XMB.

REBUG_4.53.2U_REX_COBRA_BY_Joonie.PUP (Finalized)

1. Newest webman mod 1.30.18 integrated [previously had 1.30.8 by mistake] this one supports Fan controller on 4.53 DEX mode.
2. 4.60 Spoof supported via REBUG mode on both CEX/DEX + CEX/Retail XMB.
3. PS2/PSP EMU also work fine on both CEX/DEX with 4.60 Spoofed on both CEX/DEX's Debug XMB.

  • PS2 Emu on CEX/Retail XMB on both CEX/DEX would shutdown after 3 beeps, this is the same as the original leaked version, I'm not quite sure if Team Rebug couldn't or didn't fix.
  • PS2 Emu on BC Consoles are not confirmed 100% yet, but no one seems to claim any issue, let me know if anyone tests, if there is any issue, I could do the same thing that Smhabib did with his 4.53 Cobra.
  • RSOD BYPASS / InGame Screenshot also applied (this isn't done by me but it's unusual because Team Rebug has never done this with their FW)

REBUG_4.53.3U_REX_COBRA_BY_Joonie.PUP

If you installed 4.53.2U PSP won't work, as I am fixing the issue right now and I think I found the reason currently up testing. I really hate updating in short period but this is really bugging me, sorry for those people who's involved with this PUP, please understand this is just for completion of all.

jarmster, can you test my 4.53.3U again this includes new webman and psp fix.

Update: PSP issue fixed. The CFW should have all working functions now. Enjoy!

1. Newest webMAN MOD by M@tsumot0 and aldostools 1.30.18 integrated. This one supports Fan controller on 4.53 DEX mode
2. 4.60 Spoof supported via REBUG mode on both CEX/DEX + CEX/Retail XMB
3. PS2/PSP EMU also work fine on both CEX/DEX with 4.60 Spoofed on both CEX/DEX's Debug XMB

  • PS2 Emu on CEX/Retail XMB on both CEX/DEX would shutdown after 3 beeps, this is the same as the original leaked version. I'm not quite sure if Team Rebug couldn't or didn't fix.
  • PS2 Emu on BC Consoles are not confirmed 100% yet, but no one seems to claim any issue, let me know if anyone tests,
    if there is any issue, I could do the same thing that Smhabib did with his 4.53 Cobra.

Things I used to make this possible:

  • Self Rebuilder from PUAD and its keyfiles
  • Some Hex editors: HxD, Beyond Compare 3, 64 bit hash calculator source from COBRA 7 Source from previous Cobra USB Developer, bitsbubba 's 4.60 Spoofer for reference and haxxxen 's advice

And I not only fixed stage2.cex but also stage2.dex. Hopefully this information will be useful for many people who want to work on further improved release.

From playerkp420: The Rebug Toolbox is in Package Manager > Install Packages > PS3 Hard Disk or if using file manager it is at dev_flash/rebug/packages. Just like all the other Rebug CFWs.

From kokotonix: Be careful ! Current psnpatch version was released BEFORE Rebug Cobra release. PSNPatch changes to stage2.bin consider the existence of habit offsets, not Rebug.

The 4.60 spoof, changes Vsh.self for one that it is not recognized by Rebug Cobra stage1 and will surely make a soft brick ! (You'll need to go into recovery or even swap had to recover) - or if you're in CEX mode, it will swap DEX VSH, and that's why it seems to be doing nothing.

KW already has made some changes in PSNPatch to support Rebug, but it is still in testing phase. As he is in holidays, you shouldn't have anything before the 3rd week of August. You can still use PSNPatch to disable CFW and spoof idps, but not to install contra stealth extensions or 4.60 version spoofing.

From haxxxen: I have looked at all of the system update packages now, but it seems they do not contain any debug flags like the others, so there is no way to patch them to debug. Maybe they are only encrypted with a debug key if this really exist.

Update #2: From Joonie86: I have an upcoming final release candidate of new REBUG mod, this is a release candidate of my final build and I am no longer building any more newer build after this. I am mainly looking for BETA testers who own either BC/Semi BC Consoles and Debug kit [DEX] consoles.

Here is the list of issues of Rebug Cobra 4.53.1:

[Fixed in v4]

1. Broken PSN access due to its spoof was outdated [v4.55]
2. PS2 ISO compatibility for Backward Compatibility / Semi-BC consoles
3. Broken PS2 EMU with CEX/Retail XMB [wrong hash in stage2]
4. Installation issue with recovery mode [no applicable update data was found]

[Not Fixed]

5. Soft brick when switching REBUG mode or DEX [when QA Flag is disabled]
6. 8001003 error with sprx_iso.sprx when mounting ISO games with Iris Manager [when Cobra is enabled
7. broken wireless controller connectivity when playing PS2 games
8. Higher temperature due to heavy usage of LV2 memory that could cause fan noises when using webMAN or IrisMAN, but this can be fixed with Disability of Cobra]

*Cobra 7/7.01 dynamically patches following files this cause heavy usage of system memory
Almost all CFW patch the following files statically:

COBRA dynamically patches those and also:

I fixed those issues from 1 to 4. and also added more features that is quite useful but unfortunately those issues that are marked with red color can not be fixed, although I think this is still good enough for most Rebug users.

Here is the list of new added features of 4.53.1 REBUG COBRA (mod by Joonie) v4 REX / D-REX Edition

1. PSN support is added with proper built-in firmware version spoofer [v4.65 [Currently optional update]] this requires installation of REBUG TOOLBOX 2.02.00 and this come with firmware you can locate this via Package manager.
2. Improved PS2 ISO compatibility, added support for both BC / Semi BC consoles, however there is a little glitch bug that is tolerable, when pressing PS button while playing PS2 games, its menu won't show up, so when you quit game, you have to press power button to quit games.
non-BC consoles do not have this problem, however it still requires wired connectivity with controller pads. If you are all about PS2 gaming, then I strongly suggest using any 4.46 Cobra CFW build such as Rogero/Cobra , Habib/Cobra, unofficial REBUG/COBRA and etc..

One more thing to remind you all: Non BC consoles rely on using ps2netemu file [software PS2 emulation] and ps2netemu does NOT support optical PS2 discs. Here is the quote from the official release note of Cobra 7.00 source:

"However, there is no support for optical discs in ps2_netemu. Don't forget to set the memory cards in XMB, in the old memory card utility for PS/PS2, as ps2_netemu won't let you assign them in game.
BC consoles will still use their respective emulators (ps2_emu, ps2_gxemu), which have much better compatibility and also support optical discs, original or backup."

3. Updated webMAN integration, [webMAN MOD v1.30.22 by aldostools and Matsumot0 this fully supports DEX mode, you won't have any problem with CFW syscall removal and fan controller, many thanks to these two people and deank for his original source code
4. Patched UPL.xml to allow installation on PS3 with broken blu-ray drive and broken bluetooth board.
5. Patched premo_plugin.sprx and premo_game_plugin.sprx to enhance compatibility for Remote play with PC, more information [Register or Login to view links]
6. Fixed the annoying issue with installation on Recovery mode, now it does not fail to install anymore. No more "no applicable update data was found"

Removed all that "dirty" files to make this cfw as Rebug-gy as possible. List of Removed dirty work - Big thanks to haxxxen who is a TRUE fanboy of Team Rebug:

1. dev_flash3_024.tar.aa.2013_11_26_064913.spkg_hdr.1
2. libgcm_sys.sprx.dex [This is not needed at all because on DEX mode you can not watch any DVD / BD contents]
3. removed the wrong hashes in stage2 and the new 64bit hashes are properly added with properly resigned vsh files

Plus, if you disable Cobra on REBUG TOOLBOX, This fixes all possible incompatibility with homebrews and games. ex) Amazon Instant Video, CCAPI and so on. This is really cool.

So far these have been tested on CECH-2001B , CECH-2505B CECH-2505A, Unless I get proper deep testing, I don't think I'm going to ever release them.

Currently looking for testers who have real DEBUG kits and BC/Semi-BC consoles.

I am pretty sure this will not brick because CoreOS has never been touched [except for D-REX, D-REX requires swap of lv2kernel between CEX/DEX] and there has been no hard brick reports for a month [Soft-brick was not counted because it is fixable with re-installation of firmware].

This time I need to test all proper functions to ensure the quality of completion. Things that are in need of test:

1. PSX ISO
2. PS2 ISO
3. PS3 ISO
4. PSP ISO
5. BD/DVD ISO
6. CEX/DEX SWAP
7. Remote Play with PC [I was able to confirm some PS3 games were working fine with PC but it was quite laggy]
8. Soft brick possibilities with QA FLAG's Disability [I have not attempted to fix it]
9. REBUG mode, XMB menu switch [confirmed on NOR models]
10. Installation on Recovery [confirmed on NOR models]
11. Installation without BD-Logic board
12. Installation on RSOD machine [which is confirmed]
13. Installation on real DEBUG kits [D-REX or REX on DEX2CEX consoles] and etc.
14. PSN/SEN accessibility with 4.65 Spoof

Finally, from evilsperm: REX and DREX MD5's - 4.53.1 UNRELEASED

  • REX- 80b4741a2b33ebdbf0d1539c3457cf5e
  • DREX- a27f8e495290937118552672bed8cf43
