April 12, 2013 // 4:17 am - Following up on the previous modification and the Rebug 4.40 Spoofer, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid-o has released PS3ITA Loader and Core PS3ITALD.Self for Rebug 4.30.2 PS3 CFW with details below.

Download: Ps3ita_loader-Rebug_4.30.2.rar (263 KB) / Ps3ita_loader-Rebug_4.30.2.rar (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: Given the numerous requests we decided to release a version for Rebug Custom Firmware 4.30.2 of our Ps3ita loader and Core ps3itald.self.

Ps3ita loader allows to install the functions of your choice on dev_flash which will then be executed automatically at boot console from the core ps3itald.self

The functions can be installed:

  • Install_new_idps: change the console id of your console permanently with one of your choice. The console id must be real (not invented)
  • Install_retail_idps: change the console id from DEX to CEX. The function can obviously only be installed if you are using CFW Rebug mode DEX.

Additional functions not installed:

  • Lv2: do a lv2 dump and save it in / dev_usb000/ps3ita
  • Lv1: does a dump of lv1 and saves it / dev_usb000/ps3ita
  • Dev_flash: overwrite one or more files of your choice in dev_flash the ps3, just insert the files in / dev_usb000/ps3ita/dev_flash and function will sotituirli the PS3.

How to install and use the functions:

1. Ps3ita Copy the folder in the root of the USB stick.

2. Move the flag you want to install from the / ps3ita/NOT_ACTIVE in / ps3ita. The flags are simple text files, and inside they explained their function.

The only flag that requires a change is "install_new_idps", you have to open this file with any text editor and enter a console where indicated id VALID. All other flags are simply moved to the specified folder.

3. Insert the USB stick into the port on the right of the PS3.

4. Install the pkg "Ps3ita_Loader-Rebug_4.30.2_version" and run it.

If something goes wrong, the LED turns red, otherwise fine. A log file in / dev_usb000/ps3ita cmq will be created to verify if all the steps have taken place correctly.

5. The PS3 will reboot and the functions will be active.

NOTE: The "install_new_idps" works perfectly in any mode setting Rebug 4.30.2. Tested by us:

  • Target id: DEX / Lv2 Kernel: DEX
  • Target id: DEX / Lv2 Kernel: CEX
  • Target id: CEX / Lv2 Kernel: CEX

So do not be afraid to change the mode when you want to.. We take this opportunity to thank again for his Miralatijera sys_init_osd.self!

From Luckystar: 4.30.2 Rebug target id DEX and kernel DEX install_new_idps not work! The log shows successful, but when I boot everything is normal, memory, and has not changed nor IDPS. This program just boot and automatically modify the memory idps right? Sorry, my bad English.

From haz367: Minus the 8E target ID = (new) Retail CEX type, that "value" if on DEX should be "82" as also the other offsets eid0 block dex values..

Default console id: 000000010082000bxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Finded target id DEX and kernel DEX
Console id changed to: 00000001008e000axxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Block 2F077>2F07F from starting point IDPS offset 2F070 should be different to one another as also the converted block 002f090 t/m 002f14f and second IDPS ONLY at offset/ block/line 303D0-303DF

Rex cex/dex flashes, u have used the dexflash to patch new IDPS, then use 82 instead when pasting the new IDPS edit the 8E to 82 but as this tool uses the conversion for eid0 it calculates values for that "idps" so when u provided the new one: 00000001008e000axxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Block 002f090 t/m 002f14f changes after patching, then u patch..ps3 boots REX DEX but no change when checking idps? good that it boots. provide idps: 000000010082000axxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx instead, not tested but it should give another patched result/verify them?! makes sense?

Tested.. yup if you want to do this on rex dex side and using that dump, for correct patching, edit 8E to 82 only! and after patching idps/mac, open that patched dump with HxD, click search - goto - paste: 303D0 - enter and edit only!303D5 back to 8E

That is at least a correctly patched DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN with new IDPS/MAC... if it works do stuff at your own risk.

From Rancid-o: This tool patch the idps in the ram when you start the PS3. Try this: Download this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zqbz7vkkkxniu39/ps3ita.rar

Move the folder ps3ita in the root of your usb pen and run ps3ita loader.

Finally, from Luckystar: Rebug 4.30.2 results:

  • cex idps+cex lv2 it work
  • dex idps+cex lv2 not work
  • dex idps+dex lv2 not work

i have installed it on my CECHL01 seems to be running great! no freezes no crashes so far. i personally am using multiman 4.55 full with no issues.

i wouldn't say this f/w is bs members of rebug stated back in February that 4.53 REX Cobra was basically ready they were just waiting on test reports from team members with a b/c system and recently they stated that they were bowing out of the scene due to life in general and not having time to work on the f/w anymore so i am not surprised that this got leaked.

This f/w is b/s. Look at Rebugs official webpage. Last official release is 4.46. If this is real, its a leak of unfinished work. Anyone install this yet? I dont believe in it at all.

I haven't seen one yet, perhaps it's an update from within the app itself... the latest I'm aware of is MultiMAN v04.60.00 but if anyone runs across it feel free to share a download link and we'll update the main article with it.

  • REBUG_4.53.3U_REX_COBRA_BY_Joonie.PUP MD5: ec1a09e122795d8c01c82839122e6e72

According to various reports including details from pauline45, MultiMAN 4.60.1, Showtime, XBMC, PS1iSO, PS2iSO and PS3iSO games are now working including PSPiSOs as follows:

Tested on a CECH-2003a running 3.55 CFW installed no problem on XMB and recovery. Also tried it on the 2503a that was on Habib 4.55 Cobra wouldn't install over it on XMB or recovery. I tried it on a CECHM03 running 3.55 installed no problem from XMB and recovery, so it won't install on on a higher firmware like 4.55 CFW or 4.60 CFW.

Seems to running fine, so far installed IrisMAN and MultiMAN, playing games okay with IrisMAN, but on MultiMAN 4.60.1 black screen. I tried it on a 2504b running Habib 4.53 CFW wouldn't load from XMB data corrupt 8002F169, but I tried in recovery and it loaded on.

So, confirmed working on CECH-2504b, CECH-2003a, and CECHM03 PS3, but got to be below 4.53 or a PS3 on 4.53 CFW. Won't install on 4.55 Habib or Rogero 4.55. Haxxxens Rebug installed over any firmware no problem.

CECHP-phat NOR and CECHQ-phat NOR both working as testing also CECHC- phat NAND and CECHA - phat NAND also working. PS3s was running 3.20 OFW and 3.41 on the four of them, when I installed the CFW 4.53.1 Rebug / Cobra no bricks or freezing. More testing in process with homebrew and other apps.

From BobbyBangin: This is said to be Rebug's official 4.53.1 Cobra firmware. I received this anonymously, so I cannot confirm this.

The firmware is reported to have only one issue, which is the same issue that exists in Rebug 4.46 with Cobra on DEX mode. It'll mess up VSH and start going really slow until it freezes, with Cobra enabled while in DEX. Besides that, it works fine.

You can use the toggles to turn Cobra off, to have working DEX mode. Then turn it back on when in CEX. This will not install over 4.55 or 4.60 CFW. You will need use Rogero's downgrader 3.7 to downgrade (355_Rogero_Downgrader_RSOD / 355_Rogero_Downgrader_RSOD - Mirror), before installing.

Features:

  • First CFW to include Cobra 7.0.1 features
  • Toolbox version 2.02.00 built in
  • Toggles for Cobra and WEBMAN
  • Rebug mode active in toolbox
  • Auto spoofs to 4.55
  • Working PS, PS2, PS3, PSP ISO's
  • RSOD BYPASS
  • In-Game Screenshot

So far this has been tested and confirmed working on:

  • CECHA01
  • CECHB01
  • CECHC01
  • CECHH02
  • CECHJ01
  • CECHK02
  • CECHL01
  • CECHM03
  • CECHP01
  • CECHQ01
  • CECH-2001B
  • CECH-2002A
  • CECH-2003A
  • CECH-2003B
  • CECH-2004A
  • CECH-2004B
  • CECH-2102A
  • CECH-2102B
  • CECH-2103B
  • CECH-2104A
  • CECH-2104B
  • CECH-2501A
  • CECH-2501B
  • CECH-2502A
  • CECH 2503A
  • CECH 2503B
  • CECH-2504A
  • CECH 2504B

There are currently more models in the testing process, BUT A DOWNGRADER IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED BEFORE INSTALLING! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

From pauline45: Rebug 4.53.2u REX Cobra by joonie86 (linked above) as from now I've installed this in 2 slims CECH-2003B and CECH-2504B and 1 phat NAND CECHC and a phat CECHM NOR models firmware is running fine with MultiMAN, showtime and playing PS3iSOs and PS1iSOs and PS2iSOs to with IrisMAN installed and also logged into PSN with 4.60 spoofer no problem, played GTA for 1 hour and also cod ghosts no problems.. all settings in this Rebug working perfect no softbrick on bricking issues.

Also boots up fine XMB if installing use Rogero downgrader to 3.55 and then put on USB stick 3.55 OFW and then install Rebug also this will not install over Habibs 4.55 or Rogero 4.55 so you need to downgrade to 3.55 to install it always make sure you are flagged so you can go up and down CFW without the rick of bricking issues and its always handy to have a flasher handy when checking out firmware. Thanks to joonie86 for the updates on this, as joonie86 posted me:

Just let you know I found one problem: PS2 ISO is working fine in general on both NORMAL/REBUG mode, however, only certain condition, it has an issue with PS2 Emu.

"CEX/Retail XMB Menu" with PS2 ISO combination will give you shutdown, but DEBUG CEX/DEX XMB Menu with PS2 ISO work fine on any condition on both CEX / DEX LV2 Kernels. So this is already good enough.

I may want to fix that little issue later, but this is what I have found so far. This should be the FINAL test version that has NO PROBLEM at all.

Updated Features:

1. newest webman mod 1.30.18 integrated
2. 4.60 Spoof supported via REBUG mode on both CEX/DEX + CEX/Retail XMB
3. PS2/PSP EMU also work fine on both CEX/DEX with 4.60 Spoofed

*RSOD BYPASS is also already applied by Team Rebug, just let you know.

From Joonie86: This FW has missing stage2 for PS2 EMU..

  • ps2gxemu_stage2.bin
  • ps2hwemu_stage2.bin

Normally Cobra FW has 7 files for its complete function while this 4.53 REB+COBRA has only 5+ 1 extra stage2 for DEX kernel.

  • 24aff00b3be561ce17a7c2584dcd99d5 stage2.cex 90.0 KB (92,144)
  • c6f07f9600abcaa002b240c5b8fd6e4d stage2.dex 90.0 KB (92,144)

Can you verify if this FW can load PS2 EMU? I also noticed that this Stage2 is larger than previous Cobra ones, interesting.. I was able to install it over Habib 4.55 Cobra 1.03 on XMB.

REBUG_4.53.2U_REX_COBRA_BY_Joonie.PUP (Finalized)

1. Newest webman mod 1.30.18 integrated [previously had 1.30.8 by mistake] this one supports Fan controller on 4.53 DEX mode.
2. 4.60 Spoof supported via REBUG mode on both CEX/DEX + CEX/Retail XMB.
3. PS2/PSP EMU also work fine on both CEX/DEX with 4.60 Spoofed on both CEX/DEX's Debug XMB.

  • PS2 Emu on CEX/Retail XMB on both CEX/DEX would shutdown after 3 beeps, this is the same as the original leaked version, I'm not quite sure if Team Rebug couldn't or didn't fix.
  • PS2 Emu on BC Consoles are not confirmed 100% yet, but no one seems to claim any issue, let me know if anyone tests, if there is any issue, I could do the same thing that Smhabib did with his 4.53 Cobra.
  • RSOD BYPASS / InGame Screenshot also applied (this isn't done by me but it's unusual because Team Rebug has never done this with their FW)

REBUG_4.53.3U_REX_COBRA_BY_Joonie.PUP

If you installed 4.53.2U PSP won't work, as I am fixing the issue right now and I think I found the reason currently up testing. I really hate updating in short period but this is really bugging me, sorry for those people who's involved with this PUP, please understand this is just for completion of all.

jarmster, can you test my 4.53.3U again this includes new webman and psp fix.

Update: PSP issue fixed. The CFW should have all working functions now. Enjoy!

1. Newest webMAN MOD by M@tsumot0 and aldostools 1.30.18 integrated. This one supports Fan controller on 4.53 DEX mode
2. 4.60 Spoof supported via REBUG mode on both CEX/DEX + CEX/Retail XMB
3. PS2/PSP EMU also work fine on both CEX/DEX with 4.60 Spoofed on both CEX/DEX's Debug XMB

  • PS2 Emu on CEX/Retail XMB on both CEX/DEX would shutdown after 3 beeps, this is the same as the original leaked version. I'm not quite sure if Team Rebug couldn't or didn't fix.
  • PS2 Emu on BC Consoles are not confirmed 100% yet, but no one seems to claim any issue, let me know if anyone tests,
    if there is any issue, I could do the same thing that Smhabib did with his 4.53 Cobra.

Things I used to make this possible:

  • Self Rebuilder from PUAD and its keyfiles
  • Some Hex editors: HxD, Beyond Compare 3, 64 bit hash calculator source from COBRA 7 Source from previous Cobra USB Developer, bitsbubba 's 4.60 Spoofer for reference and haxxxen 's advice

And I not only fixed stage2.cex but also stage2.dex. Hopefully this information will be useful for many people who want to work on further improved release.

From playerkp420: The Rebug Toolbox is in Package Manager > Install Packages > PS3 Hard Disk or if using file manager it is at dev_flash/rebug/packages. Just like all the other Rebug CFWs.

From kokotonix: Be careful ! Current psnpatch version was released BEFORE Rebug Cobra release. PSNPatch changes to stage2.bin consider the existence of habit offsets, not Rebug.

The 4.60 spoof, changes Vsh.self for one that it is not recognized by Rebug Cobra stage1 and will surely make a soft brick ! (You'll need to go into recovery or even swap had to recover) - or if you're in CEX mode, it will swap DEX VSH, and that's why it seems to be doing nothing.

KW already has made some changes in PSNPatch to support Rebug, but it is still in testing phase. As he is in holidays, you shouldn't have anything before the 3rd week of August. You can still use PSNPatch to disable CFW and spoof idps, but not to install contra stealth extensions or 4.60 version spoofing.

From haxxxen: I have looked at all of the system update packages now, but it seems they do not contain any debug flags like the others, so there is no way to patch them to debug. Maybe they are only encrypted with a debug key if this really exist.

Update #2: From Joonie86: I have an upcoming final release candidate of new REBUG mod, this is a release candidate of my final build and I am no longer building any more newer build after this. I am mainly looking for BETA testers who own either BC/Semi BC Consoles and Debug kit [DEX] consoles.

Here is the list of issues of Rebug Cobra 4.53.1:

[Fixed in v4]

1. Broken PSN access due to its spoof was outdated [v4.55]
2. PS2 ISO compatibility for Backward Compatibility / Semi-BC consoles
3. Broken PS2 EMU with CEX/Retail XMB [wrong hash in stage2]
4. Installation issue with recovery mode [no applicable update data was found]

[Not Fixed]

5. Soft brick when switching REBUG mode or DEX [when QA Flag is disabled]
6. 8001003 error with sprx_iso.sprx when mounting ISO games with Iris Manager [when Cobra is enabled
7. broken wireless controller connectivity when playing PS2 games
8. Higher temperature due to heavy usage of LV2 memory that could cause fan noises when using webMAN or IrisMAN, but this can be fixed with Disability of Cobra]

*Cobra 7/7.01 dynamically patches following files this cause heavy usage of system memory
Almost all CFW patch the following files statically:

[Register or Login to view code]

COBRA dynamically patches those and also:

[Register or Login to view code]

I fixed those issues from 1 to 4. and also added more features that is quite useful but unfortunately those issues that are marked with red color can not be fixed, although I think this is still good enough for most Rebug users.

Here is the list of new added features of 4.53.1 REBUG COBRA (mod by Joonie) v4 REX / D-REX Edition

1. PSN support is added with proper built-in firmware version spoofer [v4.65 [Currently optional update]] this requires installation of REBUG TOOLBOX 2.02.00 and this come with firmware you can locate this via Package manager.
2. Improved PS2 ISO compatibility, added support for both BC / Semi BC consoles, however there is a little glitch bug that is tolerable, when pressing PS button while playing PS2 games, its menu won't show up, so when you quit game, you have to press power button to quit games.
non-BC consoles do not have this problem, however it still requires wired connectivity with controller pads. If you are all about PS2 gaming, then I strongly suggest using any 4.46 Cobra CFW build such as Rogero/Cobra , Habib/Cobra, unofficial REBUG/COBRA and etc..

One more thing to remind you all: Non BC consoles rely on using ps2netemu file [software PS2 emulation] and ps2netemu does NOT support optical PS2 discs. Here is the quote from the official release note of Cobra 7.00 source:

"However, there is no support for optical discs in ps2_netemu. Don't forget to set the memory cards in XMB, in the old memory card utility for PS/PS2, as ps2_netemu won't let you assign them in game.
BC consoles will still use their respective emulators (ps2_emu, ps2_gxemu), which have much better compatibility and also support optical discs, original or backup."

3. Updated webMAN integration, [webMAN MOD v1.30.22 by aldostools and Matsumot0 this fully supports DEX mode, you won't have any problem with CFW syscall removal and fan controller, many thanks to these two people and deank for his original source code
4. Patched UPL.xml to allow installation on PS3 with broken blu-ray drive and broken bluetooth board.
5. Patched premo_plugin.sprx and premo_game_plugin.sprx to enhance compatibility for Remote play with PC, more information http://www.ps3devwiki.com/ps3/Remote_Play
6. Fixed the annoying issue with installation on Recovery mode, now it does not fail to install anymore. No more "no applicable update data was found"

Removed all that "dirty" files to make this cfw as Rebug-gy as possible. List of Removed dirty work - Big thanks to haxxxen who is a TRUE fanboy of Team Rebug:

1. dev_flash3_024.tar.aa.2013_11_26_064913.spkg_hdr.1
2. libgcm_sys.sprx.dex [This is not needed at all because on DEX mode you can not watch any DVD / BD contents]
3. removed the wrong hashes in stage2 and the new 64bit hashes are properly added with properly resigned vsh files

Plus, if you disable Cobra on REBUG TOOLBOX, This fixes all possible incompatibility with homebrews and games. ex) Amazon Instant Video, CCAPI and so on. This is really cool.

So far these have been tested on CECH-2001B , CECH-2505B CECH-2505A, Unless I get proper deep testing, I don't think I'm going to ever release them.

Currently looking for testers who have real DEBUG kits and BC/Semi-BC consoles.

I am pretty sure this will not brick because CoreOS has never been touched [except for D-REX, D-REX requires swap of lv2kernel between CEX/DEX] and there has been no hard brick reports for a month [Soft-brick was not counted because it is fixable with re-installation of firmware].

This time I need to test all proper functions to ensure the quality of completion. Things that are in need of test:

1. PSX ISO
2. PS2 ISO
3. PS3 ISO
4. PSP ISO
5. BD/DVD ISO
6. CEX/DEX SWAP
7. Remote Play with PC [I was able to confirm some PS3 games were working fine with PC but it was quite laggy]
8. Soft brick possibilities with QA FLAG's Disability [I have not attempted to fix it]
9. REBUG mode, XMB menu switch [confirmed on NOR models]
10. Installation on Recovery [confirmed on NOR models]
11. Installation without BD-Logic board
12. Installation on RSOD machine [which is confirmed]
13. Installation on real DEBUG kits [D-REX or REX on DEX2CEX consoles] and etc.
14. PSN/SEN accessibility with 4.65 Spoof

Finally, from evilsperm: REX and DREX MD5's - 4.53.1 UNRELEASED

  • REX- 80b4741a2b33ebdbf0d1539c3457cf5e
  • DREX- a27f8e495290937118552672bed8cf43

You will notice IMMEDIATELY with the loss of EDY from your menu.

huh??? did you ever even notice, that qa debug menu never has worked on rebug because of debug files? guess not.

i think it will work if you enable retail xmb, but don't shoot me on that. this is why rebug have included cex qa debug menu to be switched in toolbox.
