    Developer Joonie of Team Rebug has announced today the latest cfw release (following 4.84.2 rex) of the REBUG brand. This is not the iconic REX flavor of PS3 Custom Firmware, which is a hybrid of dex/cex, In order for the creation of REX, the team is dependent and still in search for file's needed for the creation of REX (4.85 DEX PUP). However, they have the LITE version (a CEX based Cobra CFW) ready to go for 4.85 user's seeking a new 4.85 CFW. This is a welcomed update from Team Rebug as the 4.85 PS3 CFW landscape has been a bit light in choices (for 4.85). So having the developer's with one of the best name's in Custom,Firmware development is great to see now as an available option. Also, they have updated the Cobra payload to now version 8.2 & also the Rebug Toolbox has been updated (toolbox addon requires installation in "install package files" pkg is waiting for you there after installing REBUG) You can checkout all the feature's/patche's in the provided list below for this PlayStation 3 Custom FirmWare and then checkout full details/documentation of the release at the official website (direct link found at bottom of article).

    Also note that 4.85 SPY COBRA CFW has also been a good/stable CFW flavor as well , more details on that release can be Seen here. Also note that SPY Cobra CFW will not be using the latest Cobra v8.2 (without an update) as its debuting here on 4.85.1 REBUG Lite.

      There is an issue when launching a PSX game with latest Irisman. I press X to mount the game and an error message appears, "The lv2 space for psx_storage is not empty. Exiting to XMB" and it kicks you back to XMB.

      Just reporting it.

      -edit (merged post)

      I didn't had this issue on last cfw i used (Spy 4.85 cfw) or Ermak's 4.81.

      That's weird, I just tested a few PSX iso files with IRISMAN 4.85 it directly loads the game without going back to XMB or throwing an error.
    5. SpyroMancer
      Tried 480p in settings, ps1_netemu, 16:9. I don't know why it displays error message. SLUS versions of games, european console, but i didn't have similar errors with Spy
    6. Joonie
      is that with COBRA mode enabled? or disabled? I tried the same setting on one of my games (NTSC) and it loads fine with COBRA enabled.
    7. SpyroMancer
      With cobra enabled
    8. jolek
      I've also tried few PS1 games through IRISMAN 4.85 on 4.85.1 REBUG LITE...
      So far everything seems to be fine.

      Tested on CECH-2004A.

      Well done guys. Well done.

      I have spy cobra 4.85. Installed yesterday and ps2 games freeze on black screen. I have backwards compatibility. This came out today. Can I go from spy to this? How? Regular update type with flash drive and pup file? Should I ?
    11. Joonie
      Yes, you can freely switch your CFW, the same method you did with other CFWs.

      You launch them through?
      webMAN MOD, IRISMAN, multiMAN...

      You mean you've CECHAxx, CECHBxx, CECHCxx or CECHExx?

      @aldostools this check is triggered due to nocfw_kern_plugin implementation, @habib suggests removal of this here's what he said

      @SpyroMancer we don't know how to reproduce the issue but this would conflict since the latest kernel payload implementation that was added to Cobra (since 8.1).

      Also, MAMBA doesn't seem to load on both REBUG 4.84.2 REX and REBUG 4.85.1 Lite. They just go blackscreen on launch. IRISMAN 4.85 tested.

      thanks for the reply. I have 2 fats. One is CECHA and the other CECHE. I have launched from xmb physical disc and nothing. I have launched through web man and same thing black screen and freeze. I have spy. I have not tried irisman. I have tried through multi man and still black screen and freeze. Any thoughts? I had 4.84 rebug before and ps2 worked worked fine with webman. Updated to spy for 4.85 and stopped working. Rebug 4.85 lite came out today, think it will solve the problem?

      Cool. I might try it since my ps2 ISO’s and discs don’t run on spy with cecha and ceche. Sucks. Maybe rebug will run it u think.

      I love you :)

      I tested PS2 on both E01 and A01, they all load fine

      From physical disc or webman?
      Weird. How come neither of my load. Is there a setting I need to turn on? After I installed spy on e01, I formatted the hdd thinking we man from 4.84 might be conflicting with 4.85. Clean format hdd with spy 4.85 on a E01 ps3 and ps2 disc goes to black and freezes.
      Ps3 disc works good. What’s going on.
    19. Joonie
      I didn't test SPY, I can't speak for SPY. This thread is for REBUG 4.85.1 LITE edition.
