108w ago - Following up on the True Blue PS3 version 2.2 release, PDX games and PDX patches, today Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm have updated their Rebug PS3 Custom Firmware to Rebug 3.55.2 CFW TB Edition.
WARNING – DO NOT INSTALL THIS UPDATE IF YOU DO NOT OWN A TRUE BLUE DONGLE
After thinking it over the team came to the conclusion that in the not to distant future, there will be a whole lot of unhappy REBUG users who want to enjoy their new True Blue Dongle only to realise that their hard earned save games which ran using the Fake Save Data Owner option will no longer work.
As a courtesy for our loyal users we have put together REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION.
The Codename: Rebug Team take NO CREDIT for the COREOS work as we are using the True Blue CFW COREOS with the REBUG dev_flash files (straight swap, everything works so far!!).
INCLUDED - All REBUG 3.55.2 Features
INCLUDED - True Blue CFW COREOS
(Requires True Blue Dongle to run True Blue patched 3.60+ Games)
ADDED - reActPSN 2.0 compatibility
(Credit to Hotz8611)
ADDED - No act.dat deletion on reboot
(This is our own. We feel it is a little bit cleaner than the original reActPSN 2.0 patch)
(Finally got around to fixing the display resolution on HD tv’s)
REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION can be installed over the same or lower version OFW/CFW/MFW on any model PS3 through the XMB or Recovery Mode.
REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION can be uninstalled with the same version OFW/CFW/MFW on any model PS3 through the XMB or Recovery Mode.
Just like the Official True Blue CFW, after installing REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION the True Blue Dongle MUST be connected to the PS3 for ANY of your backups to run.
NOTE: Rebug Selector 1.5.1 and 1.6.1 are identical in their function but for some reason on random PS3 Rebug Selector 1.5.1 (Which we consider to be the more user-friendly) freezes. We have included them both just incase.

Finally, bitsbubba states that there have been reports of True Blue dongle being 'BRICKED' if used on any other CFW/MFW besides 3.55 Dongle (True Blue official) or REBUG 3.55.2 True Blue Edition.

i've made a new firmware its a TrueBlue/Rebug hybrid with the vsh & coreOS from the v2 version of trueblue. on boot up it will be TrueBlue firmware which works with dongle update 2.7, i got the rebug selector working but if you select rebug then you must remove the trueblue dongle otherwise the console will hang when loading the xmb because the firmware spoofer that true blue included in firmware 6.21+ is not compatible with the rebug vsh. cause they have added some kind of dongle check to their vsh anyway if you want to run true blue in rebug mode you will just have to sacrifice the latest games and downgrade the dongle back to 2.5 firmware by running the 2.5 true blue updater again..
if you have a QA flagged console you can select rebug menu option 2 for extras like fake save data owner on the trueblue firmware you just need to press the secret combo buttons L2 + L1 + R1 + R2 + L3 + D-pad Down
DO NOT RUN THE REBUG UPDATER! Well you can if you want but your console will red screen, dont panic just put the console into recovery mode and reinstall my firmware. in theory if you run the app while in rebug mode it should work fine. will test it in a minute
No the rebug updater doesnt work DO NOT RUN IT.. to the forum administrator you should probably delete my post before someone bricks their console..
right well i see what the problem is, the rebug updater replaces important files in dev_flash. which i could fix but that could cause problems for people people on official rebug firmware if they installed it so.. errm, i might start my own firmware or something. dont really know
Guys i have a weird problem, i'm running TBV2 custom firm i have done all right i can sign in the sen but the problem is when i open the ps3 without the dongle and choose a game from multiman to start lets say pes 2011 i press x on the pes 2011 then back to ps3 xmb and show to me the original game that i have in the drive and when i open the ps3 with the dongle it doesn't open the ps3, what i am doing wrong?
I have moved your discussion posts to the ongoing Rebug TB topic per our Sticky thread on the DRM-infected dongles.
Feel free to discuss TB compatibility or issues with the new Rebug updates here... any new TB posts in the other thread will be nuked as we don't have time to continue merging them all here.
Below are some notes from Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA) also for those with DRM dongles:
NOTE #1: It does not work for users with the Cobra CFW firmware installed, due to the way the dongle does internal security checks.
NOTE #2: For it to work on 'True Blue' you need to downgrade your dongle to v2.51 and make sure you running v2 of their CFW.
NOTE #3: If you run any problems, remember to try a 'clean' CFW installed, with no reACTPSN or other spoofers or mods added!
NOTE #4: DON'T ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE your PS3 on PSN to much in ONE DAY or Sony will LOCK you out for a WEEK.
Also from BahumatLord on how to make this work with the True Blue dongle:
Instructions on how to get to work with TB with dongle inserted:
1. Reflash your TB firmware to make sure you have vanilla install
2. Reflash your dongle firmware to 2.5 or 2.51. 2.51 if your dongle shipped with it, and 2.5 if it didn't
3. Install the new rebug spoofer
Just remember that you'd be able to lauch TB games up to and including the ones for 2.5. The very latest are still unplayable.
Finally, make sure you change environment back to "np" (without quotes) if you are experiencing error 80710104.
