225w ago - After many hours and sleepless nights we present to you a Beta release of Rebug 3.41E for PS3! This has been the hard work of Cyberskunk and this project is his baby.

Rebug beta WILL NOT have the 'PSN Quick Signup' enabled.

The only thing it does at the moment is connect and enable chat and console activation (Console activation is useless without access to PSN content).. It would be a waste for the feature to be shot down before it was actually useful to anyone by everyone creating and signing in and out of Quick Signup and getting noticed...

This is a direct quote from Cyberskunk:

Q) What is 'Rebug 3.41E'?
A) An attempt to build a Debug/Retail PS3 firmware with the full features of both

Q) Does it need to be 'Jailbroken'
A) Yes. It has it's own payload. But not to use the 'Debug Settings' menu. That is always available.

I have finally decided that 'Rebug 3.41E' is in good enough shape for a beta release so here it is.

At the moment it has all 'Retail PS3' features running except PSN. So installing 'Rebug 3.41E' will not break anything infact you can play your original PS1 games in JB mode and unlike most Debug/Retail hybrids in the past this has functional BD playback(Same as usual though, not in JB mode)..

As far as the Debug functions go you have two seperate 'Debug Settings' menus to choose from (As long as you are in JB mode you can swap between them using file manager without restarting) with most of the options working (None of the really good ones yet)..

Also at anytime if you decide you don't like 'Rebug 3.41E' you can install 'Retail 3.41' through the XMB without any problems..

'Rebug 3.41E' is stable. It does not crash randomly or for no reason. It has no bugs that I know of at the moment. It does however need lots more work getting the rest of the debug options up and running.

There are a few things close to going into 'Rebug 3.41E' but would have messed with the stability for now so they will hopefully be in the next release. One of those being BD playback in JB mode (Crashes randomly at the moment so it was left out).

I will try to keep on top of it and evolve Rebug with the scene..

I hope you like it.

Cyberskunk..

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
