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.

Following up on their Rebug Update Package v0.1 (4.30.x), today Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm of Team Rebug have released a PS3 4.40 Version Spoofer 2.3 for 4.21 / 4.30 / 4.31 which allows Custom Firmware (CFW) users to connect to PSN.
To quote: 4.40 Version Spoofer 2.3 – 4.21 / 4.30 / 4.31
THIS ALLOWS PSN ACCESS - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK - THIS WILL NOT WORK ON REBUG FIRMWARE - YOU MUST BE SPOOFED TO ACCESS PSN
4.40 Version Spoofer 2.3 for 4.21 CEX/DEX, 4.30 CEX/DEX, 4.31 CEX. The app backs up your current files before activating the spoof, then auto reboots.
Press L1+CROSS to INSTALL 4.40 Version Spoof files to your PS3
Press L1+CROSS to ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE (System will reboot)
Press L1+CIRCLE to UNINSTALL (this will deactivate the spoofer, remove the spoof files from dev_flash and reboot if needed)
Note: Please do not email us about game compatibility. Some may just require a simple PARAM.SFO edit to get past the latest game update, others may not work at all because the game NEEDS the newer files.
This is not a new Rebug CFW, this is just an update package that will install the 4.40 spoof. You don't have to downgrade to install it. Actually, even if it was a new CFW, you don't have to downgrade to install it, you can just install it from XMB on top of your current CFW.
Btw, you can enable QA on 4.xx CFW now with the new Rebug Toolbox.
