234w ago - 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)

Sorry guys, don't want to ask again... but is PSN access possible in this CFW? Also, if I already HAVE 3.41(Retail) installed on my System,can I still install this?

Also, won't the restart loop have any long term effects on the PS3? Sorry if they have been answered before, couldn't find them!

Cheers

sup everyone,

Sorry I passed out and left Cyberskunk to the wolves

He should have released the pup over 24 hours ago but was waiting on me to finish the site up, and in doing he was working on something different and the orignal release got lost in the 40+ pups he had =(

He has just rebuilt the new pup from scratch be me 100% sure its the correct one and has uploaded the exact PUP straight from USB he used to test it.

The CORRECT one is being uploaded now and I have tested it myself to make sure its the correct one this time around. If any of you did install the pup that puts you into the reboot loop you DO NOT HAVE TO FORMAT.

Cyberskunk: the PUP I am going to post is the first one I made nearly 24hrs ago but decided not to because of the annoying exit crash.. If I had of just released it then I would not have mixed it up and this would have all gone a whole lot smoother.. I had to rebuild/sign it all again.. Ahh well..

On to the third round of Rebug->Retail.. No problems.. (I'm not expecting any.. Just want to be safe this time around)

Well.. I'm glad I did that.. Turns out the PUP has it's own little bug where if you try to install it from the recovery menu it spits out an error.. This is nothing major as it errors before the PUP finishes unpacking and the PS3 will restart as normal..

The error does not occur when installing through XMB so I am going to release it as it is.. It's a beta and can be uninstalled easy enough.

think he's uploading now.

before i install this.. i'd like to ask something... is it possible to install a Retail 3.41 update on a ps3 with 3.41...? i think it won't work... you need to mod it so it will reinstall the same firmware...?

and thanks for the rebug firmware

Cyberskunk: Confirmed.. This works.

I just ran the bad PUP to put the PS3 into the update loop to try this fix.. It will bring the PS3 out of the update loop and complete the update.. With no data lost.. Seems like it is one of those days for me..

is there a downgrader for a at162usb at 16mhz that i could use for installing the OFW?

there should be check the PSGrade thread.

Cyberskunk: I have the RIGHT PUP now.. Installing Rebug -> Retail -> Rebug -> Retail and so on until I am certain it will not return any install errors either way.. Then I will take THAT PUP from the USB and upload it to be sure it is the RIGHT ONE..

hey how bout one more go round guys
