It doesn't output code any differently than Rebug does normally? I'll stick with my Mm that launches ISO's. Good work guys, +Rep for effort.

Tempted to install it if it means it can play psx backups without a manager, the other stuff doesn't really appeal to me.

To quote, roughly translated: Hi all, here's a version for those who love the team Rebug CFW. This version has the same features but with some additions to the story knowing that the Rebug team will now slow down on the stage since the PS3 launched in the XBox scene.

  • Go to the Settings menu then system update => Update via Storage Media => then follow the instructions on the screen.
  • After installing the update, go in the "GAME" or "the homebrew channel" menu of the console then "package manager => Install_package_files => Standard rental package and install the package" Update_Package_0.6.pkg "(just put it on and do X)
  • In the "GAME" menu PS3, you should see the icon for the package "Update_Package_0.6.pkg" newly installed, launched, wait, then make ROUND as you will be asked once the operation finished.
