78w 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.

The dongle was also updated to version 2.5, i updated the dongle to 2.61 firmware but it wouldn't work because of the version spoof implemented not tested with latest 2.7 update but i'm guessing that it would be the same deal if anyone wants to give it a go you can downgrade the dongle by running the 2.5 update again.
technodon is it possible for you to make that firmware even though you lose the rebug features if you copy the index.dat, version.txt and vsh.self and the reason I ask this and I think it will help a lot of people with launch ps3s because I was using your rebug trueblue firmware v2 because I need it to easily swap between that and cobra firmware if I use the official one whenever I want to swap I get the error you are already on the latest version.
So I guess this is my point I am using your firmware because it used to allow me to run the latest eboot patches as well as use system update debug successfully between cobra custom firmware and yours so if possible could you provide a firmware with those swapped files even if we lose rebug features.
Or could you provide a firmware for the latest patches that has a spoofed version so launch ps3 owners can swap between cobra or another dongle without the latest system software is already installed error that I used to get because both appear as 3.55 when rebug is 3.55.2.
just a quick heads up if anyone installed and was using my rebug V2 Trueblue firmware, the new 2.61 TB update stops it working, you need to install the trueblue firmware from the official website, it stops working because you need index.dat, version.txt and vsh.self from their firmware but i can't just copy them and paste them into the rebug firmware cause although the dongle works it stops rebug features working.. so i'm going to need the rebug team to modifiy the vsh.selfs for this one!
