225w ago - As promised here is another video of Rebug in action with major breakthroughs, our ongoing project to turn a Retail PS3 console into a full Debug / TEST unit.

As I was uploading this video Cyberskunk had another major breakthrough so I will have a video of that up shortly if I'm not too drunk

We were already able to get the decrypted dev_flash from newer firmware and that's how Cyberskunk got Quick Signup working.

Then GeoHot comes out with a much easier way... but that keeps an exploit in our pocket for later use. I see some of you are already asking about re-enabling the usb exploit in 3.42+ firmwares, we have already thought of that but currently won't be working on that until Rebug is finished.

Oh and Happy New Year

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
