November 17, 2011 // 1:45 pm - Following up on the True Blue PS3 version 2.2 release, PDX games and PDX patches, today Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm have updated their Rebug PS3 Custom Firmware to Rebug 3.55.2 CFW TB Edition.

Download: Rebug 3.55.2 CFW TB Edition (True Blue dongle needed) / Rebug 3.55.2 CFW TB Edition (Mirror)

To quote: REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION


After thinking it over the team came to the conclusion that in the not to distant future, there will be a whole lot of unhappy REBUG users who want to enjoy their new True Blue Dongle only to realise that their hard earned save games which ran using the Fake Save Data Owner option will no longer work.

As a courtesy for our loyal users we have put together REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION.

The Codename: Rebug Team take NO CREDIT for the COREOS work as we are using the True Blue CFW COREOS with the REBUG dev_flash files (straight swap, everything works so far!!).


INCLUDED - All REBUG 3.55.2 Features

(Requires True Blue Dongle to run True Blue patched 3.60+ Games)
ADDED - reActPSN 2.0 compatibility

(Credit to Hotz8611)
ADDED - No act.dat deletion on reboot

(This is our own. We feel it is a little bit cleaner than the original reActPSN 2.0 patch)

UPDATED - 3.73 Version Spoof files
UPDATED - Rebug Selector 1.5.1 & 1.6.1

(Finally got around to fixing the display resolution on HD tv’s)

REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION can be installed over the same or lower version OFW/CFW/MFW on any model PS3 through the XMB or Recovery Mode.

REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION can be uninstalled with the same version OFW/CFW/MFW on any model PS3 through the XMB or Recovery Mode.

Just like the Official True Blue CFW, after installing REBUG 3.55.2 TB EDITION the True Blue Dongle MUST be connected to the PS3 for ANY of your backups to run.

NOTE: Rebug Selector 1.5.1 and 1.6.1 are identical in their function but for some reason on random PS3 Rebug Selector 1.5.1 (Which we consider to be the more user-friendly) freezes. We have included them both just incase.

Credit and Thanks:
True Blue Dongle Team for finally bringing us 3.60+ gameplay
Hotz8611 for reActPSN 2.0

Finally, bitsbubba states that there have been reports of True Blue dongle being 'BRICKED' if used on any other CFW/MFW besides 3.55 Dongle (True Blue official) or REBUG 3.55.2 True Blue Edition.

I would prefer a task to be added to MFW as I dont like rebug. I had it then it killed my HDD so I made my own MFW and its going so well.
Even a patch was made for other dongles would be good. I have one of those dongles, I forgot the name of it, the first programmable one. It's like a Teensy++.

But if we could use other dongles we would still need to patch the CFW right? so a task patch for MFW would still be needed or a new CFW like this rebug 3.55.2 TB.

Yeah you're probably right about it not working because the saves are different "structures", I think it only works for two identical save files. For example if I have the US version of GTA 4 I will need to get the US version of the save and then use PS3SaveUnlocker. EUR/JP/ASIA/US save files are most of the time identical, but sometimes they're are different.

ps3 saveunlocker doesn't work for me on ofw psn console at all. maybe i do it wrong but i doubt it.. all game saves are different structures i guess so maybe that's why.

anyways i really hope this tb thing gets incorporated into rebug cfw or theres a newer rebug.. i like it the best out of all the cfws i've tried.. great work rebug team, and thanks!!

Well here's what it says about the "Fake save owner" function on the website.

"Allows use of save data from other users and displays a warning message at every load/save during the game. Once a save data has been saved with this features activated, that save couldn't be read with this function deactivated."

So you can use other peoples save data with your user ID as if the save was your own. A bit similar to PS3SaveUnlocker.

I'm really surprised rebug came out with a dongle firmware. I thought they were a proper CFW but I guess it looks like we will be needing a dongle for the next wave of CFW.

Then we will still rely on groups to release patches to games.
