To quote: THIS SOFTWARE WRITES TO THE PS3 EEPROM - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
After having to QA a few PS3 in a row. Then installing a different firmware straight after, it was time to cut out the middleman.
Toggle QA will SET/RESET the QA Flag and Token on any 3.41 or 3.55 firmware that has lv1 mmap and lv2 peek and poke patches (which is most of them).
When you run the app it first detects if the PS3 is 3.41 or 3.55. Next it will check if your firmware has any of the required lv1 patches already and only patch the hypervisor with the ones you need. After it finishes patching Toggle QA will check the status of the QA Flag and SET/RESET it accordingly. Then once the QA SET/RESET is done any lv1 patches made will be removed.
HOW TO USE:
1: Install toggle_qa.pkg
2: Run Toggle QA from XMB
3: PS3 will beep and return to XMB. (If you do not hear a beep it has not worked)
NOTE: Every now and then it will hang on the lv1 patching stage. If it has not beeped and returned to the XMB after about 30secs you will need to reboot and try again.

Big thanks to graf and glevand for the hypervisor work.
Everyone involved in getting the QA Flag/Token working back many moons ago.

That would be ideal, but it must be a case of, sounds easier said then done...
And the reason they release them is because some people have their internet cable always in their ps3. They would hate to have a mate or brother jump on the ps3, and accidentally updated it etc and trust me, it does happen... Happened to my brothers, back in 3.55 and 3.56 came out lol
Following up on the release of PS3 Firmware v4.00, today Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm have once again updated Rebug to version 4.00 Version Spoofer and Rebug Update Package 0.4 (3.41.3) and 0.6 (3.55.2) for Custom Firmware users.
From their page: Rebug 4.00 PS3 Version Spoofer 2.1
THIS DOESNT ALLOW PSN - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK - THIS WILL NOT WORK ON REBUG FIRMWARE
Thought we would get it done quick this time around, 4.00 Version Spoofer 2.1 is now available for 3.41 and 3.55. We have added a little extra flavour in the form of reActPSN 2.0 compatibility for both your normal and spoofed vsh.self. The app backs up your current files before activating the spoof, then auto reboots.
INSTALL: Press L1+CROSS to INSTALL 4.00 Version Spoof files to your PS3
ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE: Press L1+CROSS to ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE (System will reboot)
UNINSTALL: Press L1+CIRCLE to UNINSTALL (this will deactivate the spoofer, remove the spoof files from dev_flash and reboot if needed)
NOTE: Your PS3 will need to be restarted to use reActPSN 2.0 if you HAVE INSTALLED but NOT ACTIVATED the Version Spoofer.

Rebug Update Package 0.4 (3.41.3) and 0.6 (3.55.2)
THIS DOESNT ALLOW PSN - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Install Rebug Update Package 0.4 (3.41.3) or Rebug Update Package 0.6 (3.55.2 & TB Edition) to update REBUG’s version spoof files to 4.00 and enable reActPSN 2.0 compatibility. As usual all previous fixes and updates are included.
UPDATER WILL PERFORM THE FOLLOWING TASKS
Update the Rebug Selector package to Rebug Selector 1.5.1 and 1.6.1 (Finally got around to fixing the display resolution on HD tv’s)
Update the current version spoof files to 4.00
Add reActPSN 2.0 compatibility (Credit to Hotz8611)
1: Install Rebug_Update_Package.pkg file from XMB
2: Run Rebug Update Package from the [Games] menu
3: Follow the on screen prompts
4: PS3 will reboot if needed when finished
NOTE: Once the PS3 has rebooted you can delete Rebug Update Package from your XMB as it is not needed.
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.
