Rebug 4.30.2 REX Edition - RELEASED REBUG 4.30.2 REX EDTION - MAR. 17TH 2013

For all you REX lovers we have finally added 4.30 to the family. As usual it has all the features you have come to expect from REBUG FIRMWARE.

NOTE: Be sure to install Rebug Toolbox 02.01.02 that is included in the PUP for full compatibility in DEX mode. Enjoy..

Rebug Toolbox 02.01.02 - REBUG TOOLBOX 02.01.02 - MAR. 17TH 2013

  • ADDED - 4.30 DEX Support
  • ADDED - Better Support for non-REBUG CFW
  • ADDED - Backup/Restore of xRegistry
  • ADDED - Toggle QA support for all 3.55/4.21/4.30/4.31 CFW
  • FIXED - Bug that stopped LV2 kernel from being reloaded more than once from dev_flash
  • Finally got Toggle QA up and running.. Sorry about the delay but because of some bad lv1 patching in the recent 431 CFW's causing certain parts of the hypervisor to be out by 0x1000 bytes it was a bit of a pain in theass to make it universal... BUT WE DID..

Finally, below is a 4.30.2 Rebug REX DEFAULTDNB Edition Coldboot Mod Pack from DEFAULTDNB as follows:

  • Coldboot.raf - See preview.
  • Coldboot_multi.ac3 - Simple 8 second DNB REBUG intro sound.

Finally from coldlm: Tips on how to get your Games working on the new Rebug 4.30.2 REX

1. Replace your patched files by the original once including Eboot, and Param.sfo and so on

2. Delete any updates you had before and then download the new available update and install it

3. Some games will now have to be loaded with BD mirror on internal or external what ever your using on Multiman

4. Sn some cases your gonna have to loose your old SaveData for that game, like Tomb Raider, it will not work with the new Rebug even if you do everything above unless you delete your saves, sorry i know it hurts

5. And last of all some have to be reinstalled easy as it is

6. Very important step, right after installing your new CFW, update or reinstall multiman, because a couple of ppl already reported that mM is giving them problems with loading games after updating to the new rebug

7. Good luck and pls add something if you had a problem and got the solution!

Following up on the previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer tpryor (aka haxxxen or ripl) made available an Unofficial Cobra / Rebug REX 4.46 v2 PS3 CFW build followed by Cobra / Rebug REX 4.46.3 (PSP Support Fixed) with details below.

Download: (201 MB) / REBUG_4.46.1_REX_COBRA_PS3UPDAT.rar (Mirror) / (Changed source files for Rebug REX by tpryor) /

Cobra / Rebug REX 4.46.2 MD5 Hash: fdc5692a414ff27bb77614391d4e6635
Cobra / Rebug REX 4.46.3 MD5 Hash: e16f2dca53d6bbe3e0e5cc56974db87e

To quote: As promised on hax, the new update to unofficial rex cobra. This is just a minor improvement to the already posted one, which now works with both different xmb versions, debug or retail xmb.

So no matter which mode or xmb you choose, cobra patches will work (psp isos do not work with rebug). It has now two stage2 files, cause i wasn't able to make it fully working with a single stage2. (it seemed on first view to work, but it was only the spoofer and all other functions were screwed)

Though, still no cobra functions with dex targetID/lv2kernel, cause i had problems with it and haven't looked into it anymore.

This should be tested with flashers on nand PS3's first, cause i only have a nor cechl where it was tested. But tbh, i am confident that it will not do any harm, just like the first one.

Unofficial COBRA - REBUG REX 4.46 CFW v2

Unofficial COBRA - REBUG REX 4.46 CFW v3

From toto67 (via I could make some tests and can confirm these cobra7 functions are working on my cecha12:

  • RedRibbon Linux via Toolbox
  • PSP ISOs via WebMAN/PSP Remaster
  • PS2 & PS3 ISOs via webMAN/multiMAN
  • PSX ISOS via IrisMAN 3.23+ (multiMAN doesn't work)
    if psx iso is quit by pressing ps button ps3 gives blackscreen + filesystem recovery at next start

For my cecha12 it seems a good solution as i get complete rebug & full cobra features so i do not need rogero 4.46 cobra anymore. BIG THANX to tpryor aka haxxen alias ripl !!!

Hello all and thank you for a Cobra version of Rebug

I want to say that the two versions "BD & no-BD" are functional CECH-2004B on by cons you know or find a 4.60 spoof for cfw because the last sen enabler allows me to connect to psn ​​but I loses "debug setting" so over "fake save data owner": (

thank you for reading me and excuse me for my bad english

So is this for the cobra rex version or not? I'm assuming not but the intro states "Following up on the previous update and Cobra Edition" and there's too many pages to read through.

Does this mean I don't need 455FERROX201noBDrv.PUP to play PSN games needing 4.50 or higher?

I am currently on Rebug 4.46 CFW, would like to play newer games needing 4.50 or higher, like Child of Light recently downloaded, cracked, it's asking 4.50 fw or higher, but of course I'm 4.46.

Thanks as always!

Gladly appreciate the update as always.

Is it better to restore backup first or is it just the same updating directly from lower version of updater?
