Got it installed tonight but didn't have alot of time to mess around with it.

Note this will not work on 4.00. The only thing that you can do with that is downgrade it (if your ps3 is old enough) and then install this.

Ok messed around with it for about 10 mins. Turned it off and on again and seen what it looked like on the boot a well rsod. It is time to break out the progskeet and get it fixed. I will do some more testing tomorrow with this to see if it something I did or the Cfw did. Thanks

no cinavia? If I remember correctly Rebug had the No Cinavia patches even before the standalone patch was available.

Other than the downgrade check removal, there doesn't seem to be any worthwhile features here, move on folks.

Nice one racer0018, after testing can you let us know whats new or cool that cant already be added with a PS3MFW tcl- looks like Homebrew channel and this Thurs PSX thing are completely new additions apart from the theme. The rebug features are definitely cool.
