April 28, 2013 // 6:20 pm - Following up on their Rebug PS3 4.41 Version Spoofer 2.3, Sony PlayStation 3 hackers Cyberskunk and evilsperm of Team Rebug have also released Rebug Update Package 0.2 for 4.21.X and 4.30.X followed by v0.3 allowing Custom Firmware (CFW) users to connect to PSN.

Download: Rebug_Update_Package_0.2_4.21.x.pkg ( / Rebug_Update_Package_0.2_4.21.x.pkg (Mirror) / Rebug_Update_Package_0.2_4.30.x.pkg ( / Rebug_Update_Package_0.2_4.30.x.pkg (Mirror) / Rebug Package Manager (standalone) by sandungas

To quote: Rebug Update Package 0.2 - 4.21.x and 4.30.x - THIS ALLOWS PSN ACCESS - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK - FOR REBUG 4.21.x AND REBUG 4.30.x ONLY - YOU MUST BE IN REBUG MODE TO ACCESS PSN

This will update REBUG's version spoof files to 4.41 and allow connection to PSN.


Update the current version spoof files to 4.41 with PSN access


1: Install Rebug_Update_Package.pkg file from XMB
2: Run Rebug Update Package from the [Games] menu
3: Follow the on screen prompts
4: PS3 will reboot if needed when finished

NOTE: Once the PS3 has rebooted you can delete Rebug Update Package from your XMB as it is not needed.

NOTE: Please do not email us about game compatibility. Some may just require a simple PARAM.SFO edit to get past the latest game update, others may not work at all because the game NEEDS the newer files.

From PatrickBatman: Hey, under Package Manager>Install Package Files> The internal hdd location doesn't have a title.

I figured out that's because it's omitted in install_package_files.xml because its broken by extra unnecessary code

open that xml, search for this or just use my fixed file:

Download: install_package_files.xml

PS: To be technical it should read PS3(TM) Hard Disk but instead I put Internal Hard Drive because to be honest I was in a hurry and didn't care, so change it to that if you want.

From gDrive: Here's the ready-made XML files, including a multiMAN-self-writable ZIP, yes a self-writable ZIP file that automates the process, and it has been properly edited:

Download: Rebug Package Manager (standalone) - PatrickBatman Edit (sandungas et al).zip

All credit goes to PatrickBatman, sandungas, Team REBUG et al!

Finally, from sandungas: Done, i rewritten the readme.txt and added a changelog, i never pretended to mantain this, is mostlly a final version or a community project but here there is a v0.2.

Download: Rebug Package Manager (standalone) / Rebug_Package_Manager_(standalone) (Mirror)

Is the same package manager used in all classic rebug firmwares, the most notable differences are that has been unlinked from the custom resources inside rebug explore_plugin_full.rco, and all the custom code has been moved to a separated .xml

The .xml is not dependant of custom resource files so it should be compatible with all PS3 models and all firmwares past and future, the fact that is a separated .xml also improves modularity, management, mantaining, updating, etc...

From sandungas: Im releasing another version because the new rebug package manager classic (XMBML REBUG im including in this version is the same i included in this other message some minutes ago.

The purpose of this build of "rebug package manager classic" was to be included in rebug officially but never happened, and i think is good to include it here just for completion, the reason why im including it here is because are very related, actually the "classic" version im uploading now was the base used to create the "standalone" version.

Completion release, by sandungas
Added "rebug package manager classic". This version is ONLY compatible with rebug firmwares (is dependant of rebug custom .rco's), and uses the original rebug code splitted in a separated .xml

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 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 !!!

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?
