December 7, 2010 // 12:22 am - Today we have for you a video that shows off the work of Cyberskunk in a PS3 Retail to Debug WIP Project dubbed Codename: Rebug!

He has been working on turning a retail console into a debug console through the use of firmware loader. The reason we are sharing this now is to show that it is nearly complete.

Most of this work has been done for quite some time just not shared with the public, but seeing its nearly complete you will get a preview of things to come. Once we have our full debug dumps you can expect 100% debug features on a retail console (currently we only have partial dumps).

I have left a few things out in the video that I will take screenshots of like *check although we have it enabled its grayed out, also auto download is now gone just like a TEST unit.

We will keep you posted as we make more progress in the coming days. Please do not ask when we will release this because we ourselves don't know when it will be finished.

System In The Video:

  • US - PS3 Slim 120Gb
  • Teensy ++ 2.0
  • 1Gb USB Stick (Rebug)

It clearly states NOT to install the pup in jailbreak mode... guess you learned you lesson

Now put your console in Service Mode and reflash the official 3.41 back.

we have been seeing reports on older release consoles having issues. We are looking into it

Someone has tested installing it on a 20gb release through Service Mode (NOT RECOVERY MODE) and it worked for them. I have not tested that myself so I cant recommend anyone else try. If you are on an older console and the PUP isn't working for you and you want to use Rebug just use the original Rebug pack and follow the tut to the letter.

We are working on the next release of Rebug so you can jump on beta 1.0.0 or 1.0.1 if you really want or just wait for the next release.
