Rebug Toolbox is application designed to complete the full function of REBUG REX EDITION firmwares but is also compatible with most current 3.55/4.21/4.30 CFW (some options are not available). 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.
Displays Firmware version, Toolbox version, IP address, current LV2 Kernel and Target ID type and free HDD space.
Quits Toolbox and returns you to PS3 XMB.
Perform either a Full or Soft reboot od the PS3 system.
Soft (LV2 Reboot Only)
Full (On/Off Cycle)
Boot OtherOS with either your currently selected LV1 patches or easily apply ALL LV1 patches and boot.
Boot (LV1 Patches: Apply All)
Boot (LV1 Patches: Use current)
TURN OFF SYSTEM:
Shut down your PS3.
SELECTOR (REBUG FIRMWARE ONLY)
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.
A collection of LV1 patches that can be used for better compatibility with some PS3 tools. Any combination of these patches can be applied before booting OtherOS.
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.
Enable/Disable QA flag. This option is only available for 3.55 CFW as we are not able to set QA token at the moment from GameOS on higher firmware.
TOGGLE RECOVERY MODE:
Enable/Disable Recover Mode flag. When enabled your PS3 will reboot into Recovery Mode.
TOGGLE PRODUCT MODE:
Enable/Disable Product Mode flag. When enabled your PS3 will reboot into Factory Service Mode. This option is only available for 3.55 CFW for safety reasons.
LOAD LV2 KERNEL:
Load lv2_kernel.self.[KERNEL_NAME] from USB or /dev_hdd0
RESIZE VFLASH/NAND REGIONS:
Resize VFLASH/NAND Region 5 to allow install of OtherOS.
Install Petitboot to VFLASH/NAND Region 5 from USB.
SET GAMEOS BOOT FLAG:
Sets the GameOS boot flag. Use this if your PS3 is having trouble booting PS2 titles after running OtherOS or is accidently sending you back to OtherOS when trying to enter recovery mode.
CREATE PACKAGES FOLDER ON PS3:
Create /dev_hdd0/packages folder or your PS3 to be used with Package Manager.
EXPORT HYPERVISOR LV1 MEMORY:
Save LV1 memory to dev_usb000 or dev_usb006 or dev_hdd0 if usb is not found.
EXPORT GAMEOS LV2 MEMORY:
Save LV2 memory to dev_usb000 or dev_usb006 or dev_hdd0 if usb is not found.
EXPORT FLASH TO FILE:
Backup your current NOR/NAND to file on dev_usb000. Takes about 45secs for NAND
CHANGE ACTIVE PS3ID:
Spoof IDPS in LV2 memory. Choose from Use EID0 or Use EID5. EID5 will spoof your original CEX IDPS allowing you to connect to PSN if your PS3 is running REBUG REX EDITION firmware in DEX mode. This option is only available in REBUG 4.21.x REX EDITION and below at the moment.

Hi everyone. I hope someone is able to help me here, because i don't understand what went wrong. I was running Rebug 4.30.2 cex edition and decided to install the update package spoofer in order to go the psn store.
However after i was trying to install it , my ps3 crashed and when i booted it again i got the red screen of death... i tried to restore it from the recovery menu but when i got to system update, my ps3 crashes and doesn't let me proceed...
Is there ANYTHING i can do? maybe with a flasher or something like that? Again i don't really understand what went wrong.
Thanks to anyone who will be able to give me a hand
ok i am an absolute amateur to ps3 cfw, i have only used cfw on my psp, can everyone please explain to me what the main features if cfw 3.55 kmeaw or rogero ? and do i have to use specific a specific version of the files that come with the cfw ? like a specific version of multiman ? please explain as much as you can to me, will be much appreciated
You can put it on an external, you just need to use something like PS3splitter to split the 10GB file into smaller files, so you can FTP it over, MultiMan will convert it back into a big file again when you run the game, but on an external it will still install the 10GB file on your internal drive, and the loading of the game can take an horrendous hit.
Personally I'd download the 25GB rip version of the game that is available which has the extra languages and MP mode removed, and put that on your internal drive.
You can put it in either folder, MultiMan will still load it. By all mean upgrade your internal drive, a nice 1TB should keep you clear for a while, it's dead easy to do, any 2.5" laptop drive will work, it even tells you in the PS3 manual how to do it.
Hey all thanks for stopping by... Here is my dilemma:
I am on Rebug 4.41. Got the 120GB slim model. I have an external which is fine but I grabbed The Last Of Us the other day and can't copy it to my external cause there is a file thats too big for FAT32 file system. I am in a dilemma... I am trying to figure out where to copy the game too.
I can ftp into my ps3 with filezilla however I have 2 games folder...One is called GAMES and the other is GAMEZ. Where should I copy the game to? Also how much hard drive space do some of you have in your PS3? I have debated on upgrading the internal drive to something a little bigger so I can put more games on there but right now I only 36 gig left... Anyone have any idea as to what to delete to free up some space?
