November 3, 2012 // 4:34 pm - Following up on the Rebug 3.55.3 / 4.21.1 PS3 CFW REX Editions, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer deank has updated multiMAN to v04.10.00 which includes PS3 Rebug (REX) support alongside the changes outlined below.

Download: multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #2) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #3) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #4) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #5) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #6) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #7) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #8) / multiMAN v04.10.00 Base CEX (20121103) (Mirror #9)

Below are the changes, as follows:


  • Added full support for 4.21REX (REBUG) firmware
  • Added support for 4.21REX in DEX full mode (DEX flash + DEX lv2 kernel)
  • Added support for PS1 disc backups for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode
  • Added support for direct-disc-access for 4.21REX CFW in DEX/DEX mode (data CD/DVD/BD discs)
  • Added support for flashing 256MB NAND *.EID0.NANDBIN backups
  • Users with broken BD drives can use 4.21REX in DEX mode with fake BDEMU stick/image for 100% game compatibility

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're using DEX mode in 4.21REX, use this CEX version of mM (do not install the reguar DEX mM which is only for official dex firmwares).

This package also includes:

  • Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00
  • c2d + openssl


It is to help users with broken BD-ROM drives (which have a working logic board and married to the PS3). A lot of games have issues when started from /app_home or using "Direct Boot", that's why this is the BEST solution for such users. You will have to be on 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) with DEX Target ID flash and DEX LV2 Kernel (full DEX MODE).

From the ReadMe file: If you do not want to waste a whole USB HDD you can use a small 512MB USB STICK to emulate your broken BD-ROM.


  • PC and PS3
  • USB stick/drive (512MB minimum size)
  • Disc Image Generator Software (ps3gen)
  • PLAYSTATION3.iso Dummy BDEMU image
  • 4.21CFW REBUG (REX) operating in DEX mode with DEX lv2_kernel (FULL DEX MODE)
  • Connect a USB HDD to be used for BDEMU
  • Start "Disc Image Generator for Playstation3" (ps3gen)
  • Click "Show" button in the top right-hand corner
  • Click "Select File..." button
  • Locate and select "PLAYSTATION3.iso" provided in this archive
  • Click "Save / Emu ..." button
  • Select "Write Image to BD Emulator HDD"
  • Select your BDEMU USB HDD
  • Pick a slot from the list and click "Write Image"

On your PS3 with 4.21REX CFW and multiMAN 04.10.00 installed:

  • Install "Rebug Toolbox 02.00.00" and launch it
  • In DEX/CEX: Flash your DEX EID0 NOR/NAND file (DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN file on /dev_usb000 stick)
  • Quit Toolbox and reboot your PS3
  • In XMB "Settings" go to "Debug Settings" and set "Blu-ray Disc Access" option to "BD Emulator (USB)"
  • Turn off your PS3
  • Connect the BDEMU USB HDD drive/stick to the right-most port (/dev_usb000) - the port closest to the BD-ROM drive
  • Turn on your PS3
  • You should see "PLAYSTATION(R)3" Game Disc mounted in XMB Game column
  • Start multiMAN 04.10.00+, load a game from internal HDD or external USB HDD connected to another port. Do not unplug the BDEMU USB drive.
  • Start your game from the Disc Icon in XMB.

Done. In the pictures below you can see how it looks when you boot your PS3 with the dummy disc game, if you start it and if you mount a game with mM (Assassin's Creed III used as example) and check XMB

MultiMAN v04.10.00 is Now Updated with PS3 Rebug (REX) Support

Do you have the Full 4.03 installed, then try installing the 4.04 file again. If your updating through mmCM on PS3, try downloading to pc first, then install from usb.

Hey Boss, a new version of multiMAN mmCM v4.04.00 is released (it came up via update option -

Download: mmCM v04.04.00 Base (20120619) (25.34 MB) / mmCM v04.04.00 Base (20120619) (Mirror)

multiMAN v4.04.00 (available through the update option in multiMAN) / SVN

What's New:

04.04.00 -

  • Fixed something that annoyed some users of 5x4x5, 42 and XBDM display modes: After restart (or going to mmOS and back) game modes 5x4x5, 42 and XBDM will display the last selected entry (game/video/music/photo) and will *not* reset to dash mode
  • Added option to "Default Display Mode" setting: [Disable]; If there is no display-mode-lock it will make mM start in the last used display mode
  • FTP session timeout set to 1 minute

mmOS related:

  • Added context menu when desktop is selected (to Refresh, Create New Folder, Show Desktop, Reset mmOS, Restore Wallpaper)
  • Added "Permissions" to context menu when single folder is selected (to reset folder access permissions)
  • Double clicking on .p3t (PS3 theme) will copy/install the file/theme to PS3 XMB themes system folder (/dev_hdd0/theme); user can later install it from XMB
  • Added support for creating shortcuts to /net_host PC shares
  • Folders created on the desktop now open properly
  • Desktop shortcuts to /ps3_home/video, music and photo now have proper icons and open the virtual folder and not the /dev_hdd0/* one
  • Desktop shortucts to games/executables (EBOOT.BIN/.SELF) can be used to boot external apps or mount games

Game Compatibility / CFW Related (KMEAW/REBUG/ROGERO 3.55CFWs):

  • Improved compatibility for the so-called "Black-Screen-Games" (BSG) which *until now* required the "BD-Mirror" option and worked ONLY from external usb HDD (otherwise game would lock/loop/error during load).
  • Now users of the listed firmwares can use the "BD-Mirror" option for game backups stored in the INTERNAL HDD. It may improve the compatibility of over 100 games (some older titles, some newer), for example AC1 / Colin Dirt 1 / Prince Of Persia / CoD / MW / Tomb Raider, incl. titles which had sound issues.
  • A partial list of some games that may gain from the new option can be found here: (by GotIt4Free /
  • It is now possible to set "BD-Mirror" option for games in Internal HDD and it enables the new functionality. The option works both with PS3 Game Disc in the tray and in discless mode from /app_home.
  • The option is available in the "Game Settings" menu for each game in the list

Some of the games that have been tested by Tortuga-Cove member GotIt4Free which are now working on Internal HDD are:

  • AC/DC LIVE: Rock Band
  • Apache: Air Assault

Every developer has the right to protect his/her work by using dongle protection (most of them pretty poor at best).

As seen many o' times over on the GSM scene, dongles are being cracked/hacked/exploited for their contents. It's only a matter of time. Look how quickly all the other dongles were phased out - in what, about 12 months (less I think) we were pretty much dongle free (except FSM)

I'm glad someone can see how much 'work' exists in zadow's releases.

From Wololo (via PS3 Zadow's release a useless repost?

Yesterday I posted what appeared to me as a massive breakthrough in the PS3 scene, a bunch of files decrypted from the Cobra dongle, one of the DRM encrypted piracy dongles for firmware 3.55. The files had been released by user zadow28, who seems to have a fairly good reputation on some of the scene’s websites.

I have been contacted since then by several veterans of the PS3 scene, who told me these files are, in essence, garbage.

They didn’t explicitly tell me the word “fake”, but rather, it seems the files posted by Zadow are basically useless information, which in addition has been publicly available for a while. None of them told me “where” that information actually can be found, which for now I interpret as “it is so useless that we will not even bother to tell people where they can find the information in the first place”.

I do not have the tools, the knowledge, or the time to confirm if Zadow28 is a fraud, but I can say I am seeing a pattern I’ve seen in the past on the psp and the vita scene: unknown guy gets semi famous by posting lots of garbage that looks like the real deal, famous devs call him out for a faker, random people start some conspiracy theories about old devs trying to get all the credits, other random people tell the old devs that they should collaborate with the new guy instead of bashing him, old devs have a hard time explaining that it is impossible to collaborate with a dude who has the IQ of a banana. (I’ve been through that so I know how people like kakaroto feel.

So, if I’m to choose a side, I’ll go and trust the old dudes. If they say it’s useless, I guess they’re right.

From defyboy: Thanks but these were mostly available already. With the exception of your IDA DB of course.

Why do I constantly find things newsed as a release when it's just copies of the stuff the developers made available on the wiki long ago. This isn't a gift for developers, it's another cry for attention. The developers either already have this stuff, or know exactly where to get it.

I made a mirror on the wiki for anyone who wants his files:

From euss: At least I won't be needed to give zadow unself/ungpkg with sources and precompiles like his last readself2/3/4/5 fail (so much better to use scetool anyhow)... (which btw are all on wiki, /files and gitorious too)

I do not know who incepted this thread with nonbased remarks about Atmel AVR/Micochips PIC, but they should look closer to the content and what is needed for such target. There is nothing AVR/PIC related inside the filesets, just plain unself/ungpkg'ed files which where ran through IDA and exported i64/db files. It also does not make any sense to even /want/ it as a dongle, because if you have the PPU/SPU changes, it would make alot more sense to distribute it as patches (MFW Builder TCL) or live patcher: payload (payloader3) then a stupid dongle.

From CrashSerious: First, I've had some concerning health issues and haven't touched this for several months. Also, priorities were re-alligned in the process and haven't had a chance to pick it back up. So I have nothing to report... on to the main reason for posting.

I had a big long email started (about halfway done) detailing every file in there and just gave up due to the number of things that were junk.

Mostly, it looks like files we already have, unselfed eboot.bins (congratulations on using unself or scetool), a corrupt ida database, some meaningless/worthless logs and who knows what else.

I did look at the corrupt idb to make sure it actually "looked like"an idb. It actually did at a glaqnce--- so at least it's not like the last time and he was trying to pass off a linux binary as lv0 decrypted or some crap like that... oh wait... he did do that, didn't he defyboy .

Probably a better use of my time if I stopped dissecting the gift any ways. Zadow’s files are still available here if you want to give them a look, but it’s probably not the breakthrough I initially thought it was.

Finally, from flat_z: I am very sad looking at all news sites about ps3... when they keep posting any "shocking" news about such noobs as zadow28 and exposing him as the greatest hacker in the world

Hmm, cobra dongle payload hasn't been completely reversed by zadow, because he simply doesn't have the skills for doing that stuff, what he released is something anyone can do on their own, so it's of zero utility to get payload hacked.

yeah, with the improvements he done on MM I think he deserves to work on something that he can get something. He release stuff for free for over a year already, but I do hope that dean wont get mad on us who uses the dongle-less cobra.

I already have a Cobra, but if this leads us to a hybrid CFW with both features then it will surely be nice to be dongle free again.
