    Following the release of 4.84.1 REX a new update has been made by Team Rebug with the release of 4.82.4 REBUG REX (& D-REX) with the inclusion of COBRA v8.1 that we seen debut in @Joonie's latest PASTA (DEX) COBRA CFW. This update also corrects a long-standing bug (7 years) that resided in Rebug when trying to install in some region via Recovery Mode. Also PS3Xploit Support has been added (mostly for developer use), these features in REBUG REX and various fixes/changes can be seen below. Along with an overview of features REBUG REX can offer

    • What’s new since 4.84.1 REX/D-REX?
      • Installation issue fix (This has been bugged for the past 7 years due to missing the license agreement for 3 languages including English[UK], Brazilian Portuguese and Turkish. Certain users used to have a problem installing REBUG while on recovery mode, and this is finally resolved!) *no more data corruption error!*
      • Font fix: (some old games that use system font now display all letters correctly, Polish letter fix is removed due to this change )
      • PS3Xploit support: (The old webkit is brought back to allow PS3Xploit support, HAN can be used)
      • REBUG TOOLBOX 2.03.02 MULTI 16 (PS2 Emu swapper’s removed as this became obsolete since Cobra 8.1)
      • Cobra 8.1 (Enabled by Default) source available via this link (Stage0 now supports kernel & VSH plugin on both Cobra and non-Cobra mode, loadoptical flag(for BC and SemiBC) is created at all time as long as stage2 is disabled, this is only beneficial to BC/Semi-BC users for those who don’t use COBRA) More information available via this link

      There are two PS2 game formats basically
      If you are loading it in ISO format it means you are loading it with either cobra or mamba, this feature is not available in HEN btw (because in HEN is not posible to patch the emulators .self's)

      The other way (available in HEN) is by using the "PS2 classics" format, here the ISO is encrypted. This is what you should use for the experiments, because is not dependant of cobra/mamba
      This way you can disable cobra... and run your "PS2 classics" game without cobra and without webman
      There is a tool made by aldo named "PS2 classic GUI" you can use to create them
    3. Cypher_CG89
      Is your PS3 a NAND model? And was this using the CFW power options to reboot into recovery mode?
      Alright, I disabled cobra, encrypted a game using ps2 classic GUI, pasted the bin.enc with multiman, unloaded webman using r2+l3+r3, opened the the ps2 classics app, get black screen, the red led of my wired controller turned off, and had to shutdown the console.

      You are not following any of the suggestions i told you

      1) i dont believe the hdd sentinel and crystal disc... what you need to do is an indepth surface scan that takes hours to complete
      2) you are not disabling cobra
      3) you are not trying to replace the hdd by a different one
      4) you are not using the PS2 classics GUI

      Is ok... do whatever you want... but later dont quote me telling... "i did all you said"
    6. sandungas
      Btw, the PS3 slims doesnt have any chip dedicated to PS2 emularion, so you dont have any chip damaged

      I mentioned that the hdd could have problems because at this point i know 2 different ways to damage the file ps2_netemu.self (one of them involves bad sectors in the hdd)
      But i guess the MD5 check i suggested should ride out this posible culprit
      Also, in both cases, it should be fixed by reinstalling the firmware (and you mentioned you installed other firmwares already)

      In the last post you said you had another black screen, that looks to be related to video output. Have you tryed to.. ?
      -reset the TV settings (in the TV menu)
      -reset video settings (in the PS3 by entering recovery menu)
      -use a different HDMI cable
      -use a different TV
      -try this test ...if the activity LED blinks it means the game is working fine but you dont have video output

      I changed back to a normal hdd western digital and all my ps3 issues disappeared, no more multiman or webman problems. I totally recommend a 1TB HDD to use as internal drive for daily usage. I didn't know ps3 is unstable when operates with SSD drives.

      I currently use the 1TB 2.5' HDD western digital WD10SPZX model with advance format technology. It is a blue HDD with rotational speed 5400 RPM. The local store had available an identical model but with 7200 rotational speed. Will the ps3 be running cool with 7200 rotational speeds? Do you think I should go for that 7200 hdd? Anyway I'll need an additional hard drive as a backup.

      It's not that it can't, it's that using one is somewhat redundant due to the PS3 hardware not being designed for SSDs in mind, despite using the same SATA interface.

      It's like if you use a USB 3.0 drive with the PS3; it'll work because the technology is the same and 3.0 has legacy support, but the PS3 only supports up to 2.0 so you aren't getting the full benefit due to the limitations of the console itself.

      Switching XMB mode operations sometimes it will not properly swap the vash and will reboot in no xmb only the wave.

      I can only switch one or two times before it happens ( all the fresh installs)

      i think one of the three vashes is not working properly

      i tried manually renaming them and now worked (it was renamed right), but swapping one of them, becames the system to not load the xmb (one of the DEX ones, Cex Works, One Dex Works, and the other make this to the system).
