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 disagree with that as there are these no skill player cheat devices that enable you to mod the eboot for invincible etc or however it works..my limited understanding of them is they thankfully don't work on retail ps3 consoles but work on cfw..no skill players could go on line with this stuff and it would destroy my online experience and i purchased the game.. GRRR
i agree about the security and detection and hopefully sony will swing the ban hammer and/or take legal action against pirates if this cfw ever works to play pirate games on psn!! that's how i feel as a consumer.. but i do agree there are cheating fools there already,but imagine if cfw enables psn access there will be a lot more..
Windstyle you need to read Barry's post above. It says it all really.
There is no way you can go on any network without it showing up, regardless how you mod the thing, once a unit is modded, it will show up, if you reset it back to stock it will still show up as modded. If I have time later I will do a video of the scans and tests I do on my modded and stock ps3's , and show the changes and differences there are.
Unless some bright spark, can find a way to turn the modded flag off, then regardless of firmware it will always stand out as non standard, then reject the unit from PSN.
