126w ago - As a follow-up to the previousJaicraB JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware videos came a video (below) by pdnked of a PS3 Slim Retail console running Rebug 3.66 Custom Firmware (which is actually PS3 OFW 3.66 with a few Debug files added) from Dospiedras1973 via Spanish site Elotrolado.
Dospiedras1973, EOL and user who has already managed to do the downgrade recently consoles INFECTUS using FAT for that necessary, has released a firmware that allows PS3 to version 3.66 with options debug a machine operative. Some clarifications are annotated by the developer:
No turning back, pass over to 3.66 with all that that entails. Only you can downgrade to INFECTUS (dospiedras method).
No syscalls / payloads ... so that the burden of copies is disabled. For what is agreed is a firmware guy ... GeoHot.
The 3.55 homebrew installed no longer work.
There is no package installer (for now).
Full access to PSN.
Works on both Fat and Slim (as shown in the video), no tricks hardware and could suggest a user in the comments.
Of course, install under your own responsibility, nor do I Dospiedras not responsible for any errors or omissions performed by the user.
Shortly following, Rebug developer Cyberskunk stated via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/206-?p=1380#post1380 the following warning: "DO NOT INSTALL THIS. After ripping this PUP apart it appears the rundown will be VERY VERY SHORT.
This is RETAIL OFW 3.66 with just a 'few' of the files from DEBUG firmware.
ALL OTHER FILES ARE RETAIL INCLUDING COREOS."
In conclusion, those without an Infectus Mod who do not wish to risk their JailBroken PS3 console and lose the ability to run PlayStation 3 back-ups and homebrew should avoid this PS3 CFW at the present time... whether further progress will change this or not only time will tell.

I'm not going to start another thread, but it appears this is being recycled today on several sites (nextgenupdate.com/forums/showthread.php?t=435698#post3578355) as a 3.66 JailBreak via NUIKERD: thetechgame.com/Forums/t=1850074/366-jailbreak-news.html
Below is a video and the details if anyone wants them: Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?8m98yk8p4eb79d4
I'd guess the reason that it only installs on 3.55 (or earlier?) is down to the fact that it's been rebuilt and re-packed with known 3.55 keys. So no 3.56 or above keys are needed (and probably not known at the moment anyway).
Is it therefore already possible to unpack ANY pup using the 3.55 keys at the moment? In case an OFW user is still on that firmware before updating to any future version?
If so, it should be possible to alter all future firmware in this way and even remove/alter the parts of it that stop the 3.55 keys from being usable? Or am I missing something?
