199w ago - As a follow-up to the previous JaicraB JFW DH PS3 Custom Firmware videos came a video (below) by pdnked of a PS3 Slim Retail console running Rebug 3.66 Custom Firmware (which is actually PS3 OFW 3.66 with a few Debug files added) from Dospiedras1973 via Spanish site Elotrolado.

A rough translation from Teknoconsolas states the following:

Dospiedras1973, EOL and user who has already managed to do the downgrade recently consoles INFECTUS using FAT for that necessary, has released a firmware that allows PS3 to version 3.66 with options debug a machine operative. Some clarifications are annotated by the developer:

Download: Rebug 3.66 CFW (Spanish) PUP / Rebug 3.66 CFW (Spanish) PUP (Mirror) / Rebug 3.66 CFW (Spanish) PUP (Mirror #2)

Dospiedra Modified Firmware details to note:

  • Only user-3.55 (no matter if CFW or OFW)
  • No turning back, pass over to 3.66 with all that that entails. Only you can downgrade to INFECTUS (dospiedras method).
  • No syscalls / payloads ... so that the burden of copies is disabled. For what is agreed is a firmware guy ... GeoHot.
  • The 3.55 homebrew installed no longer work.
  • There is no package installer (for now).
  • Full access to PSN.
  • Works on both Fat and Slim (as shown in the video), no tricks hardware and could suggest a user in the comments.

Of course, install under your own responsibility, nor do I Dospiedras not responsible for any errors or omissions performed by the user.

Shortly following, Rebug developer Cyberskunk stated via ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/206-?p=1380#post1380 the following warning: "DO NOT INSTALL THIS. After ripping this PUP apart it appears the rundown will be VERY VERY SHORT.

This is RETAIL OFW 3.66 with just a 'few' of the files from DEBUG firmware.

  • vsh.self
  • index.dat
  • version.txt

ALL OTHER FILES ARE RETAIL INCLUDING COREOS."

In conclusion, those without an Infectus Mod who do not wish to risk their JailBroken PS3 console and lose the ability to run PlayStation 3 back-ups and homebrew should avoid this PS3 CFW at the present time... whether further progress will change this or not only time will tell.

Couldn't they just have took Matercrack PS3 Dev_Flash PUP Packer / Unpacker (Des-Emp) homebrew app and switch the flash from 3.66 DFW to 3.55 CFW with 3.66 spoofer?

Probably, according to both KaKaRoToKS and GitBrew it's in the works and with fewer new games coming out during the summer months it wouldn't surprise me if they held out until this fall for a release.

Yep, it's all semantics... if you submitted it worded like 'Modified Debug Firmware' vs 'Custom Firmware' I probably would have approved it as well as long as the title fit our news block. We don't change titles once they are posted though as that messes up our links, etc.

Not sure, but odds of getting the private keys are probably slim (no pun intended ) since Sony fixed the random number bug.
